What is Castle Country OHV Association and why is it important?

10 Nov

We are a social organization. We make it possible for folks with similar interests to interact in a social setting such as meetings, picnics, rides and more.

We promote the positive aspects of ATV’s / UTV’s

We work to protect our Access to OUR PUBLIC LAND.

We realize that not everyone likes to attend meetings and go with large groups on a ride, that’s ok.

Maybe you don’t agree with everything that our club does, that’s ok.
Maybe you don’t like everyone in the club, that’s ok.
Maybe you don’t like working on trails, that’s ok.
Maybe you don’t like the local land manager’s, that’s ok.
Maybe you don’t like getting involved with political issues, that’s ok.

None of the above are good reasons for not joining the club.
Even if you do not want to be actively involved it is very important that you belong to an active organization. The so called environmental groups, (actually restricted use, non motorized groups) learned a long time ago that numbers, networking and a unified voice gets attention.

We need a unified voice from local, state, and national organizations.
We are the grass roots of motorized recreation.
We support other OHV organizations such, The Utah ATV Association, Southeastern Utah OHV Club.
We also support national organizations such as The Blue Ribbon Coalition.
We all have a roll in maintaining and increasing access to public land.
We would like to encourage you to give us your support in the fight to keep our public land open to motorized use. $25.00 a year is a very inexpensive way to help us do what is needed.

26 Oct

By  Robert Pahl

Chimney Rock Trail Ride; Well we had eight machines today, 12 people. The weather was awesome, started to sprinkle right at the end of the trail ride, and then it rained after we were in our vehicles on our way home.

A Big Thank you to every one that attended what a fun day!12072655_1906675099558555_3508477657884436375_n12079173_1906675316225200_2413788851275630480_n12096565_1906675359558529_5992329615024737326_n12108248_1906675242891874_5877500200037302256_n12115496_1906675406225191_7915117470329312482_n12122650_1906675432891855_4334933319326768157_n

October 6th Trail work report

26 Oct

By Joan Powell

Did someone say RAIN? Tuesday, October 6th, was a planned work day down at the Chimney Rock Trail……the weather was making the plan very iffy. The two men from the Wasatch Front had made their plans to leave Roy at 5:00 a.m. to get in on the work project, rain or not, they were coming, and they did. We met out at the Information Station, (the intersection by the Wedge junction), at 10:00 a.m. Jaydon Mead was coming from the Emery County Trails meeting, Brett Stewart and Wild Bill Zumwalt were coming from Roy, Glenn and Austin Olsen from the SLC area, and Ryan Hansen and Joan Powell came from Carbon County.
It rained the night before. Jaydon came from Castle Dale, he didn’t have too much mud on him. The Wasatch Front boys came in from Huntington, they had a little more mud on them, Ryan and Joan came in from Cleveland and had TONS of mud on them. Ryan watched Joan’s truck and trailer slip and slide all over the place. Joan’s machine was a mess before it was ridden on.
The plan was to “fine tune, or groom” the Chimney Rock Trail from the Green River Cut-off Road by the towers on Cedar Mountain, over to Chimney Rock. A few more re-assurance carsonites were put it. Trees were trimmed to accommodate side-by-sides, and the larger rocks were removed so that side by side’s would not get high centered.
Needless to say, there was a big black cloud over the Chimney Rock area when the group left the Information Station, but this brave crew forged on with their plans to ride and work. Luck had it that they only experienced a very minor sprinkle at the first of the day, and beautiful sunshine and clouds for the rest of the day. Lots of joking was made that we made it a “girl-y trail”. The day was enjoyed by all, glad we didn’t let the rain scare us off. It was great fun to ride back along the trail that we had just improved.
The BIG OUCH came the next day when Joan went to the car wash to wash off everything. It took her $28.00 and an Hour and Twenty Minutes to wash the truck, trailer, 4-wheeler, and the club ATV trailer. Sure hope she didn’t clog the drains at the Market Express car wash!IMG_2123IMG_2125IMG_2127IMG_2133
