Riders Enjoy Visit

A wild week of ATV racing, wrangling and recreation came to a close Saturday, in Wallace, with the conclusion of the ATV Rodeo, which signals the end of the nearly week-long ATV Jamboree.  About 200 people camped out for the week, but while attendance was slightly down due to the troubled economy, High Mountain ATV President Jim Shields said that enthusiasm was up.  “The numbers were down just a bit in terms of rides, but it was up in participation as far as how many rode all week. Lots of people stayed with the group this time, and spent lots of money in the town,” he said. “The enthusiasm was great — they were on their machines ready to roll at 9 every day when the rides took off.”

People came from all over the Northwest, including a strong contingency that took the trek down from Canada to participate in the High Mountain ATV’s marquee event. Guests were treated to such unique events as an ATV drag race, a barrel race and an obstacle course built by Shields and his family. However, the highlight of the event may have been the new sled pull, which featured a sled that measured 30 feet, built by the father-son tandem of Dave and Luke Sprough.

“For our drag race, had it professionally timed by a snow mobile club that came in and did the timing for us. We had the racing lights and it was great for the racers to see what time they came in with and to get a print out of it,” Shields said. “Another highlight came from a family that’s been coming here for about 10 years, the Strough family. That was a big hit with some huge number of participants. [The Stroughs] built it for us and they did an outrageous job on the machine and we had some fun with it. High Mountain ATV secretary B.J. Case agreed with her president that the big draw was the Stroughs sled pull. “There were so many highlights, a lot of new people from some new areas, a lot of people from Canada, and everyone liked the new sled pull,” she added. “We hadn’t had one for a couple of years, but now we got a new sled that the Strough’s put a ton of work into and donated to the club.”

No riders suffered any significant injuries during the five-day event, and the masses of participants that came in waves from western Washington, Canada, and California never once found themselves feeling out of place in northern Idaho.  The feeling of warmth and community that was given to out of town strangers was something Shields was most proud of. “You can’t say enough about the city of Wallace and Shoshone County, and the citizens for opening up their homes, so to speak, to these out of towners,” he said. “Everyone treated them excellently and they couldn’t say enough about how they felt right at home. The atmosphere we created didn’t allow them to feel like strangers tearing up our woods, they felt like they were just here to have some fun with some good friends.”

New Mandatory Safety Course for Minors

 During the 2011 legislative session, the Idaho Recreation Council worked with legislators to pass SB1001. The passing of this bill brought a couple of key changes to Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) education requirements in Idaho.

All unlicensed riders who wish to operate an OHV on National Forest roads are required to take an OHV safety course.

A Great Place for ATVs

Staff writer Shoshone News Press

WALLACE — Dirt Wheels Magazine named Wallace one of the top 12 North American ATV towns in its March 2010 edition. “Their history is deep-rooted in the mining, logging and railroading industries, and the mountainous terrain is filled with unparalleled scenic views and wildlife,” is how the publication describes the historic area.

High Mountain ATV Association President and Safety Officer Jim Shields said the club was kind of surprised with the ranking from such a prominent ATV magazine, although Dirt Wheels has always done well in promoting the local ATV Jamboree — which will be celebrating its 17th year this summer. “We’re very excited about it,” he said. Shields said ATV riders are able to explore about 1,100 miles of trails in Shoshone County, enjoying how Silver Valley merchants make the area very hospitable. [Read more…]
