Welcome – The January club ride was from 5 Mile Pass to Eureka. We had 47 machines with us.
We traveled around the west side of the Tintic mountains, staying at the lower elevations. After
passing by Black Rock Canyon, we began to encounter snow drifts, causing several people to get
stuck, so we again dropped lower to hopefully avoid any more problems. We had one large hill
to climb, which caused some of the smaller machines to get stuck, including one UTV that got
tipped on its side. After getting everyone to the top of the hill, we were now on the downhill
decent. We came out on Hwy 36, then followed Hwy 6 into Eureka for lunch at the B’s
Hangeout. After lunch we traveled over Homansville Pass, down to Allen Ranch Rd. This was the
muddiest part of the ride. We traveled through 12 Mile Pass, down to the Railroad Grade Rd,
then back to the staging area. Thanks to everyone who came out for the ride, it was a fun day.
For February the plan is to ride Cherry Creek. As us experienced riders know the trail conditions
can vary drastically, from dry to muddy and covered in snow. Please plan accordingly. You can
find staging and ride details on the website soon.
For March our ride will be in Mesquite NV. Please see the Ride Coordinator sections and the
website for hotel and other ride information.
Please continue to RSVP in the events on the website for every ride. To accommodate those
that don’t attend the BBQ we have added a second option to RSVP for the ride. The first Option
should be utilized if you are planning on attending the BBQ. We would like to remind you that
when you RSVP for the BBQ, it is for how many members are in your party. The people count is
critical to ensure that we have enough food for everyone at the BBQ (post ride). We would also
encourage you to bring a side dish to share and provide some variety to our BBQ’s. The second
option is simply to RSVP that you are planning on attending, this will be for machine count.
Please continue to watch the website for our Sponsor of the Month. The Sponsor of the Month
will be offering amazing deals for our Club Members. To take advantage of these deals you will
be required to show your membership card. If you have not received your card, please contact
the Club Secretary to obtain your card.

Hi everyone Dan with the safety crew here. This month has been a busy month, our first ride of
the year. Great day out at 5 mile we ran with 47 machines and only 2 minor mishaps. 1 belt and
1 machine on its side. Please everyone take; the time when you get in your SXS to buckle your
seat belt or fasten your harness. Only takes a second and could save you from being hurt or
ejected. Thanks, and have a great day.
