DNR Volunteer Appreciation Dinner - 1/18/18



The DNR hosted a volunteer appreciation dinner that Coy, my wife, and I attended along with volunteers and members from various other clubs and areas of the state. These groups not only consisted of full-size 4x4 but also ATV, UTV, and single track users.


It was great to hear about all the projects and success stories everyone had throughout the year and to learn that between the trail host program, service projects, and miscellaneous work done by volunteers, everyone logged over 2000 hours!


Our club also was honored to receive special recognition from the DNR as Club Of The Year. This was very unexpected and very humbling to say the least.


I want to make sure everyone knows this would not have been possible without all the hard work and dedication you as members have put in over the year. It has been my privilege to work with such selfless and caring individuals during the various trainings, events, trail-rides, cleanups, and service projects.


I cannot thank you enough for donating your time, expertise, vehicles, etc.. to serve the community and preserve the areas we all love.


I look forward to what we can achieve together in 2018!

  • 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.
