Children and the Earth Trunk-Or-Treat

Thank you to everyone who made it out to the Children and the Earth, Inc.Trunk-Or-Treat on the 25th! And thank you to those who could not make it who allowed me to bring their clothing donations to the event on their behalf. The event brought in quite a bit of items which was awesome to see!

Unfortunately i did not get a chance to take many pictures(others did and you should definitely check out their posts on the page), but i did get to do at least one lap around and was very impressed with all the different decorations everyone had. It was cool to see what people came up with in the space limitations of a vehicle and parking spot.

Many offroaders took home awards that were chosen by the children at the event, and after very intense deliberations by our judges, Amber N Chad Goodwin were chosen for our best of show award!

I want to thank our judges this year, Mark Williams, Tom Carlson, Josh Norris, Alyssa Hill, and Lynette Richardson. Its great to have these volunteers each year willing to spend time reviewing each vehicle. Thank you!

Speaking of volunteers, i need to thank Jenny Turner and Bryon Densley for helping my wife and I out with our balloon inflation and ribbon tying. I severely underestimated how many kids would want balloons, and it was a blessing having them come over to my aid.

Again thank you everyone for coming out. This truly makes a world of difference for these children, and it definitely one of our favorite events of the year to support.

Til' Next Time!

  • BOAR returned again this year for the 4th year of the Wasatch Wigeon Outdoor Youth Fair. Our members have been supporting this event since its first year and we had another great time showing kids that there is tons to do outdoors that is load of fun. This year we brought back the roof top tent for kids to climb in, s'more making station complete with campfire, ATV simulator courtesy of the DNR, and of course lots of swag items and balloons which were a hit. Despite having fewer vendors this year due to a scheduling issue with the park, there were more kids than ever and we were quite slammed keeping up with the rush. The event topped off with a large raffle where practically everyone won some great prizes. Thanks again to the Wasatch Wigeons for hosting this event again. We love that this event is free to the public, family oriented, and is geared towards getting folks outside. Til' Next Time!
  • The 2019 Salt Lake Off-Road Expo has ended and I wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out to support the expo, and stopped by the BOAR booth to say hi. It really is an awesome experience to have so many great off-road related groups and vendors all coming together. I want to give a special thanks to all those who volunteered their time to run the booth and make the event a success for our group. It was great hearing you share your experiences in the club and the passion you have for the outdoors. As you know the event was incredibly busy and we absolutely could not have managed everything without your help. We look forward to seeing many new faces joining us on our adventures, and have made some great industry connections for future events that will be coming up. On a personal note it was an honor again this year to be asked to speak on an off-road club panel alongside some truly great folks that I look up to and respect. Thank you to those who attended the panel, asked questions, and learned how to get involved along with some insight into how our sport has evolved over the years. We are already looking forward to next year and appreciate the opportunity this event provides us to connect with great people. Til’ Next Time!
  • A quick thank you to everyone who was able to make it out to our year end get together last night. It was a fun evening with food, contests, games(including some serious looking ping pong rounds and Mario kart sessions), give aways, and a brief recap of the groups impact during the year. Thank you to everyone, and every group, who made the year such a great success! As usual I failed miserably at taking pictures so if you happened to snap some please share. Til’ Next Time! P.S. - To those who re-gifted your koozies to me, I will find you.
