Alabama Cheaha Trail Riders Honored, Named Club Of The Year By National Group
The Cheaha Trail Riders in Talladega County, Ala., earned the “Club of the Year” award for 2011 from the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) at the national organization’s annual meeting in Minneapolis in September.
This AMA-chartered club was selected over all the NOHVCC-associated clubs nationwide.
“This is fantastic,” says Glenn Myers, Cheaha Trail Riders co-founder and president. “Our people have worked hard in advocating OHV safety and education, along with promoting the building of new OHV trail systems throughout Alabama and the U.S.A.”
Steve Newton, Cheaha Trail Riders vice president and Alabama state representative to NOHVCC, who received the award on behalf of the Cheaha Trail Riders at the conference, says: “I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least, when our organization was announced to receive one of the most prestigious awards that an OHV organization could receive. I could not wait to send an email to all our members congratulating them on such a great accomplishment.”
Cheaha Trail Riders is a family-oriented organization that has members from Alabama, Georgia and Florida. The club began in 1988 and quickly became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization advocating OHV safety, education, OHV trail building and trail riding.
The club also holds a Make-A-Wish charity event every year. This year’s event will be held at TOP Trails in Talladega County on Saturday, Oct. 29. Mickey Ferguson of Fox 6 WBRC will be the special guest.
