Who is Utah / Arizona ATV Club?
The Utah / Arizona ATV Club is a group of OHV enthusiasts who value our ability to access and enjoy the outdoor and off-road opportunities that our government lands provide.
We have a family membership of over 200 from more than a dozen western states. We represent the interests of our membership both young and old in having equal access to OHV trails. Our membership represents many veterans and retirees, who, in our later years enjoy being outdoors and our OHV and ATV adventures. We annually spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in our local communities in support of our outdoor activities. We are proud to bring many of our out of state members and chapters to Kane County and support their access to our local trails and adventures. We represent our local communities being an advocate of the OHV rider and especially our veterans. We also know what actual conservationism is about, not talking about it but by our own efforts. We annually do road and trail cleanups and staging development that benefit all who use our roads and trails.
How much to join the club?
Club Membership: The annual dues of $25.00 are paid in January of each year of membership. The membership fee includes those living within your home. Dues not paid by May of the following year will result in you being removed from the active membership list and the correspondence lists. ATV Club meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month except December. Meeting times are at 7:00 PM in the winter months, and at 6:00 PM during the summer months when we do a cookout after our meetings. Monthly club rides are generally the Saturday after the Thursday meeting. ATV Club rides, camp-outs, and special events are posted on the ATV Club website and emails are sent to the membership.
What does the ATV Club Bylaws say about ATV Club rides?
The ATV Club Bylaws designate Club Rides for each third Saturday after the Club meeting. These monthly rides may be changed as determined by the Trail Boss. Complaints of the ride destinations and/or changes made or ride experiences, speed, trail conditions, et el., should be directed to the Ride and Event Chair, Tony Wright at 435-899-8116.
Does the ATV Club conduct Social Events?
Yes, because of member interest, Camp-outs, additional rides, Vehicle / ATV tours, parades, and the annual holiday dinner are scheduled in addition to the third Saturday of the month rides. These events are approved by the membership and presented at Club meetings. Participation is optional, times are subject to change.
How does the Club make notifications of rides?
ATV Club rides, camp-outs and events are posted in a yearly schedule sent out via our updated new website, and reminders using G-Mail email address list. Updated change notices are posted one week before the event if possible. The event schedule will be posted on the ATV Club Website. Questions about posted events should be directed to Sam Smith at 435-644-8236.
Does my ATV need to be "street-legal" to participate in a club ride?
Many areas of our rides do not require ATV's to be street legal. However, the enforcement of related laws tends to be very inconsistent. Riders who choose not to license their ATV for use on public roads must recognize that participating in a club ride will be done at their own risk. The rider is solely responsible for any resulting citations. Please note that some trails may restrict OHV's wider than 50 o 60 inches. The Club and Trail Boss cannot be responsible if you choose to ride a wider OHV and are restricted from certain trails, it is your responsibility to know of these restrictions.
Does the ATV Club stage and convoy to the Camp-outs?
No, usually the Camp-out location is posted and directions given to the members.
What are the themed social events all about?
The ATV Club conducts social events on pre-designated dates as requested by the membership. Participation is at the discretion of the member. ATV Club sponsored dinners or other sponsored activities are paid from the "Split the Pot" funds collected at our ATV Club meetings.
What are the ATV Club Chapters?
The ATV Club has chapters. The Circle of Friends is comprised of out of state members who visit each year usually in October. We will help this group with guiding them on new and old rides and welcoming them to our meetings. The Vehicle Road Trip Chapter is comprised of members who schedule and enjoy our vehicle road trips. Trips are usually for several days to interesting locations and staying in motels. Those members who wish to be on the road trip mail list will receive notifications of planned road trips.
