Idaho UTV Club Picnic – July 11, 2015

We are really excited that our Club picnic is coming up soon.  Actually, Saturday, July 11 at Clear Creek Lodge. Dinner will be served at 6:30.

The cost this year is $15.00 per person.  That will include tax and gratuity.  We will have a similar meal as last year with Prime Rib and all the fixings.

If you plan on attending, please RSVP me by JULY 1 via email with how many in your party will be attending.  I will need to give Kirk a head count at our meeting on that date.  I do hope you all can join us as I’m sure there will be lots of fun and so many stories to share around the campfire.

Thank you,
Darlene Smith, Secretary, Idaho UTV Club

It is that time of year again when we start planning our Disabled Veterans ATV Ride. The ride this year is being planned for Saturday, August 1, 2015. The location we are riding is still being decided, but it is looking like we will ride in the mountains near Idaho City, Idaho again.

Please let me know if you would like to help out again this year by providing an ATV machine for you and a disabled veteran. Or let me know if you have a side-by-side machine that you can take a disabled veteran riding with.

Just respond to me with your:

TRAIL DIFFICULTY GUIDE

Level 1
Beginner: Gravel or dirt surfaces that are relatively flat and wide. Generally wide
enough for an ATV to pass a full-sized vehicle. May be dusty but are relatively smooth with no
rocks or roots protruding more than three inches above the surface. Ride distance will be short,
speeds very slow.
Level 2
Advanced Beginner: Mild ups and downs, some narrow, mild rock, mostly roads
and jeep trails, minor off camber. Two-wheel drive ok.
Level 3
Intermediate: Loose gravel, sandy, rocky or rutty surface. May have short
sections that are narrow. Can have blind turns, switchbacks, steep or roller coaster grades,
some off-camber side hills, minor drop-offs, ruts and frequent changes in riding surfaces.
Occasional obstacles may strike the frame. Four-wheel drive may be needed depending on
conditions. Pace of ride will be a little faster, distances and length of ride will be longer.
Level 4
Advanced Intermediate: Rocky surfaces, sharp turns, switchbacks, steep
grades, narrow passages, low overhangs, ledges and large rocks. Can be slippery and muddy
when wet. May have tree stumps, limbs or other debris. Machines with low ground clearance
may strike or high center on obstacles. Four-wheel drive highly recommended.
Level 5
Expert: Very rocky, steep, off camber, high water crossings, large ruts. Large
obstacles in trails, narrow with big drop offs. Four-wheel drive required, may need winch.
