Yamaha Awards GRANT of $10,000 to North Country ATV Association

Donation Supports Membership Drive & Property Expansion as a part of ongoing effort to encourage safe, responsible riding and sustainable, open riding areas in Saratoga County.

Greenfield Center, NY – November 3, 2008 – North Country ATV Association is pleased to announce it has received a Yamaha OHV Access Initiative GRANT of $10,000 for trail development, property expansion, and to increase rider satisfaction. The GRANT was awarded as part of Yamaha's OHV Access Initiative promoting safe, responsible riding and open, sustainable riding areas.

The GRANT (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nations Trails) will be used to purchase signs for club trails, trail maintenance items such as bridges and culverts, and to help pay the club's annual lease. “The expectation is to have an ATV trail system much like the state funded snowmobile trail system. All of these improvements should provide a positive rider experience that promotes membership renewals as well as attracting new members to our club and the sport ” says Bill Below, Trail Coordinator for NCATVA.

Moak Detraglia, long-time President of NCATVA states, “We are very excited and pleased to be given this opportunity from Yamaha. Our ambition is to provide a legal area for off-road enthusiasts to enjoy the sport and this funding will allow us to improve our trail system. We look forward to serving our current membership as well as new members. We have received support from local dealers in the past and now with the corporate sponsorship, we anticipate great things for our club.”

North County ATV leases 1506 acres in northern Saratoga County. The property is open to club members to legally ride their ATV's, Side by Sides (UTV's), and dirt bikes. There are currently 13+ miles of trails that range from novice dirt roads to twisting technical trails. The club's goal is to grow to over 125 members and to have 20 miles of signed, mapped trails by September, 2009. North Country ATV Association is a member of the New York State Off-Highway Recreation Vehicle Association Inc., and the New York State Trail Riders Organization Inc.
