NOHVCC Adventure Trail goes to School in Iowa


Carlisle, Iowa School kids show off their Adventure Trail materials after hearing a program from the NOHVCC folks.

When the Heartland 10 Hour ATV race came to Carlisle, Iowa recently it brought along more than just racing action to this small community. The promoter of the race, Andy Kyner, wanted the entire community to not only be interested in attending the race, but to understand more about OHV recreation in general. He began by communicating with the County Board of Supervisors, Chamber of Commerce, and the City Council about putting on some safe and responsible OHV programs for the townsfolk and school children. When all was said and done, Kyner arranged to have the NOHVCC Adventure Trail downtown for the ATV/UTV Expo held the night before the race. In addition the NOHVCC crew got some time to talk to the kids at two elementary schools and pass out nearly 900 Adventure Trail Activity books and CD-ROMs.

"Andy is a great example of how a racing promoter can promote OHV recreation to the community as well," says NOHVCC President Dan Kleen who was on hand as one of the presenters of the school materials. "To him it's not so much about putting dollars in his pockets, but trying to show people in the area of his events that they can go out and ride and have fun as well." Kyner, who was named ATVA Promoter of the Year, had a great turnout for his 10-Hour race with 56 teams showing up for the big event as well as a field for the Kid-class and side-by-side races.
