Dear BRC Members and Supporters in New Mexico,

BRC just received an email from Gordy Spingler at the Blackfeather Trail Preservation Alliance with an announcement on the New Mexico Department of Fish and Game's OHV Trail Ambassador Program training on September 21, 2013.   

We've pasted Gordy's email below. Please take a minute to read it over, and pass it along to friends, family and riding buddies.

As always, call or email if you have any questions or comments.

NM Game and Fish Dept. runs the state OHV program, and they are starting a Trail Ambassador Program, with a training on Sept 21. Can you please send this out to your wide audience?  We are fortunate that NMDGF hired former NMOHVA president Chris Johnson to work in the OHV program.  As you can see below, Chris has a new title, OHV Education Coordinator.  As described in the attached flyer, the training will be on Saturday Sept 21.

People who are interested need to read the flyer carefully, all the way to the bottom. They MUST submit an application in advance, by Sept 13. Walk-in's will not be accepted.   Applications can be downloaded from the department website  at www.b4uride.com or obtained from the Albuquerque office.

Call Chris for more information. His phone number/email are in the flyer, and also listed below. The training will be at the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, 3841 Midway Place NE in Albuquerque.

Senate Introduces Legislation to Ensure Appropriate Safety Standards for Side-by
On February 18, 2015, BRC's Don Amador, a SXS enthusiast, asked you to contact Congress because federal regulators were trying to impose their "street-oriented" view on SXS users and the industry by proposing a Rule which could have devastated SXS recreation. BRC asked you to send an email urging your representative to cosponsor H.R. 999 -- The ROV In-Depth Examination Act. Your response was awesome!  That House bill has gained a lot of support.
