2024 TAD Sales are off and running!
2024 TADs (Trail Access Decal) have been available for purchase starting 12/15/23. To date the applications we have received reflect the membership’s ongoing support with 27% including an additional donation to the club and 43% stating they would be willing to volunteer for the 2024 season. The process has been updated to match the ongoing registration changes at the DMV. They are discontinuing the small sticker with registration date that used to come with renewed registration and the online permanent and temporary registration forms will look different going forward.
Members will still need to provide an image of their vehicle registration proving it is currently registered as an ATV to purchase a TAD (Trail Access Decal). As we take another step forward into the digital age your final paperwork will be emailed to the address provided on your application, it can be printed or saved on device to show to law enforcement is requested.
Members will also be able to purchase club only memberships to support clubs beyond their home club and transfer their TAD to a different machine through the website again this year. Please remember to transfer a TAD we need an image showing the original has been voided and cannot be reused, you will be provided with a new sticker and matching paperwork.
The message below was recently circulated by a club on social media. It got me thinking about my own volunteer experiences over the last 5 decades. I have certainly gotten a lot of fresh air and exercise, had a lot of laughs, been part of trail projects that are still in use today and made some memories. There is nothing like driving by a bridge or cruising down a trail remembering the times you were there helping put it together. On a more selfish note, volunteering for trail set up or clean up, brushing and building bridges etc. has gotten me out on trail many times when trails are closed to non-volunteers.
Hope to see you on the trails this year!
Why volunteer for your local ATV club?
In an increasingly complex world, VOLUNTEERING for your local ATV club provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friends and fellowship. You will find instant friends in both your own community and elsewhere in the area.
VOLUNTEERING is fun! Your club projects are fun; social activities are fun; meeting new riding buddies and service to others is fun.
3. Business Development and Networking.
Everyone needs to network. ATV Clubs consist of a cross-section of every business in your community. Our members come from all walks of life. Clubs help one another, and collectively help others.
4. Personal Growth and Development.
VOLUNTEERING with your local club continues to better one's growth and education in human relations and personal development, motivating and leading others.
5. The Opportunity to Serve.
This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a VOLUNTEER; the chance to do something for somebody else, sense the self-fulfillment that comes in the process and the return of that satisfaction to one's own life.
