Yamaha Awards Grant of $10,000 to Aitkin County Land Department

Donation Supports 70-Mile Trail Project as a part of ongoing efforts to encourage safe, responsible riding and sustainable, open riding areas in Northern Minnesota

3 Feb 2009 (Aitkin, MN) - The Aitkin County Land Department (ACLD) is pleased to announce it has received a Yamaha OHV Access Initiative grant of $10,000 to support the 70-Mile ATV/OHM Trail Project. The grant was awarded as part of Yamaha's OHV Access Initiative promoting safe, responsible riding and open, sustainable riding areas. The funding will be used to develop signs and maps to support use of the trail, and youth safety classes are also being planned.

Farm Island Repair & Marine of Aitkin, a local Yamaha dealership, provided a letter of endorsement as part of the grant application.

"This project will help expand OHV trail and rider opportunities in North Central Minnesota and is well supported by local rider clubs and businesses," says Deb Olson of Farm Island Repair & Marine.

The 70-Mile Trail Project includes the development of an extensive, first-rate ATV/OHM trail system in Aitkin and Itasca Counties. The trail is designed to be environmentally sensitive, economically beneficial and community supported.

"The counties completed the environmental review process for Phase I of the project and construction will begin this winter with initial right-of-way clearing and staging of materials," says Mark Jacobs, Aitkin County Land Commission.

Don't forget that Yamaha will have an announcement next week regarding a few different product lines. I believe it's scheduled to be on February 10th.

    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
