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.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
