4 Weeks and Counting to the
WOHVA 2012 Annual Meeting
Being Held in Spokane
on the Weekend of September 14 - 16!

ALL motorized recreationists are invited to our annual meeting;
you need not be a WOHVA member to attend . . .
we NEED your input and involvement.

Plans are moving ahead for the WOHVA 2012 Annual Meeting being held in Spokane on the weekend of September 14 - 16!

This newsletter provides the latest information with additional information on accommodations.

We have shifted the date of the annual meeting to Saturday, September 15th rather than Sunday, September 16th. This allows us to have the meeting at an OHV-related business (thank you Barton Jeep!).

Here’s the complete weekend schedule:

a. Friday, September 14th: Afternoon play day at the 7 Mile ORV Area. Be sure you have a Discover Pass if your vehicle/rig does not have an ORV sticker! If you plan to attend, please send an e-mail with your cell # to 4x4er@dog-walker.us to let us know.

b. Saturday, September 15th:

(1) 10 AM to ~ 3 PM: Annual meeting (lunch included) at Barton Jeep

(2) 6 PM: Supper and fellowship at Timber Creek Grill & Buffet

c. Sunday, September 16th: All day trail ride in NE WA and Idaho. Since we will be riding on OHV-approved county roads as well as USFS roads/trails, a Discover Pass will not be required!
