This national workshop series is sponsored by the Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA), the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) and the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America (SVIA).

Design of the workshop sessions was a collective effort by professional trail consultants, ARRA, MIC, SVIA, American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), Blue Ribbon Coalition (BRC), United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA), and NOHVCC, with input from USFS trail managers.

The Agency Workshop objectives are:

   To develop a better understanding of the needs and concerns of OHV enthusiasts and other stakeholders in implementation of the USFS Travel Management Rule
   To improve the quality and the sustainability of trails, trail systems and areas through the implementation process
   To improve OHV enthusiast and other stakeholder input and support for the implementation process
   To increase partnerships between the USFS, the OHV industry, OHV enthusiasts and other stakeholders
   To facilitate better communication between the USFS, OHV enthusiasts and other stakeholders

I signed up for all 4 days.

I have a copy of the Escanaba Workshop CD, but havn't had a chance to look it over yet.
I'll have to give you a report after returning from the LP Workshop.
