This was also a great get-together, judging by the number of off roaders that were talking shop among themselves. We are already looking forward to the 3 rd Annual Swap Meet next spring.

Join us at the Jamboree

During the week of July 13th through 19th, the Nevada Four Wheel Drive Association will be presenting, with Carrera Performance Group, the 1st Annual Silver State 4X4 and UTV Jamboree. We feel that the Reno/Sparks area, with its many roads and trails is the perfect setting for an event that will draw OHV enthusiasts from across the nation. This is the year in which we will get our feet wet and learn for future events. The base location will be at the Nugget (formerly John Ascuaga’s Nugget) in Sparks, NV. On Sunday, July 13th, come to the Meet and Greet for N4WDA and the Blue Ribbon Coalition. Meet your N4WDA directors and Del Albright, Director of Operations for the Blue Ribbon Coalition as well as other OHV leaders. The Meet and Greet will be in the Southern Pacific B meeting room starting at 5:00 PM on Sunday, July 13th (we’ve been saying from 5 to6 PM, but we have the room from 3:00 to 9:00. Don Spuhler and I can’t make it before 5 PM because we’re returning from the Niagara Poker Run in the Sonora Pass area). On Monday, July 14th, there will be an OHV Leadership Summit, by invitation only, where leaders of OHV groups and the OHV industry will discuss issues associated with the future of OHV recreation. On Tuesday, July 15th, there will be 4X4 and UTV trips led by volunteers to local trails and destinations. Because we are not advertising and pre-registering for these rides, there will be a sign-up sheet at the Silver State Jamboree room at the Nugget and if enough interest is shown for a local trail or destination, the volunteers will lead the participants to that trail or area. If there are multiple trails signed up for, the volunteers will lead multiple trips. However, if only a few select a trail, those may be combined with a trip to another trail of about the same difficulty. On Wednesday, July 16th, the RallyVenture is to be held. This is an event combining an off road rally with geocaching (and a few other things). Since N4WDA is not involved with the RallyVenture, check out silverstatejamboree.com for information. If there is enough interest, there is the possibility of more 4X4 and UTV trail rides. Check at the Nugget. On Thursday, July 17th, there will be more 4×4 and UTV trail rides, just like Tuesday. On Friday, July 18th, there will be practice and qualifying for the HellsGate Grand Prix, an Ultra 4 race (King of the Hammers– type vehicles) to be held on Saturday at the Wild West Motorsports Park, at the Mustang exit from I-80 east of Sparks. N4WDA will have the membership booth set up in the manufacturers display area. There will be a free Show ‘n Shine along the entrance path, so shine ‘em up, bring ‘em out and show ‘em off! Lastly, on Saturday, July 19th, the HellsGate Grand Prix race will be held at the Wild West Motorsports Park. N4WDA will again have the membership booth set up in the manufacturers display area. If you can make it to any of the events, please come. Support N4WDA in its efforts to help make the 1st Annual Silver State Jamboree a success. Be sure to drop by and say hi to the N4WDA volunteers during this week. If you are available to volunteer to help N4WDA during this event, please email me at nevada.4wd@att.net. Larry
