Leadership in OHV Organizations, Article


This may very well be the most important column I’ve ever written.  It’s about leadership; it's about our future. 
meeting
We have a lot of great leaders in recreation, but we have no single source, unified leadership to guide us to the future. We do not give our allegience to any one group or organization. Read here to find out why, and what we can do about it.
Many years ago, a colleague of mine, Norm Lenhart of Off-Road.com at the time, talked about what he perceived as a lack of unified leadership in our OHV communities.  Norm, as usual, made some great points.  He felt we needed a national leadership with a guiding figure – much like the role Charleston Heston served for the NRA.  
Can we have a guiding organization?  Do we have one?  Can we all follow the same "goose?" Read/download the whole article here at http://www.delalbright.com/Articles/leadership.htm

RACELINE WHEELS AND WARN LAUNCH CHRISTMAS AUCTION FOR BLUERIBBON COALITION


POCATELLO, ID (October 12, 2011) -- BlueRibbon Coalition is excited to announce our third annual Christmas Auction to save trails and keep public lands FOR the public instead of FROM the public. The eBay bidding will start December 1st, 2011.

BRC Auctioneer Del Albright said, "I'm stoked; this auction is kickin' it for public lands and waterways. Businesses from all over have donated products and goodies to make this year's auction a record-breaker."

Raceline Wheels and WARN Industries started off filling the virtual storeroom shelves already. Get ready to see Raceline Monster Diamond Beadlocks and a WARN winch to start with. More partner-contributing businesses will include a long list of recognizable names. Stay tuned.

BRC lists hundreds of items on eBay (as donated by supporting businesses) with all proceeds benefiting their national efforts to save trails and riding areas for our continued access.

"Thanks to the vendor donations, not only is each winning bidder getting some awesome product, they are also contributing to our winning team," said Greg Mumm, Executive Director of BRC. "This annual eBay auction significantly beefs up our ability to fight back," Greg added.

The three teams this year were Team Degenerates (1st place): Team MetalCloak JK Adventure (2nd place); and Team Poly Performance (3rd place).

The Team Challenge is like a scavenger hunt on the rigs to see who can find a trail item the fastest and get it to the judge first.  Sponsors included:
