Bob Walker notified MTVRA Board that he will serve as the volunteer editor of the Montana Trails Rider News through the Fall-Winter 2018 edition. He said, “It has been a pleasure putting the newsletter together since 2012 and I will always be dedicated to and a supporter of MTVRA!”
“I find myself overwhelmed by all the work still needed and demanded to enhance trails in Montana. I volunteer my time to an array of trail recreation organizations, both motorized and non-motorized, and to the department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks which manages your OHV grant program as well as snowmobile and RTP. I was recently appointed to your OHV Advisory Committee to assist FWP with the OHV grant program. I also was recently elected Chair of the Montana Trails Coalition, an organization that brings all statewide and some regional trail organizations together to address fiscal and programmatic needs of trails in Montana. I plan to dedicate the majority of my volunteer time to those efforts.”
“As much as I hate to admit it, I have reached an age (71) where working nearly full time on challenging issues has started to drain me a little. So it’s time to back off a little and spend more time enjoying the trails to which I have dedicated my last 27 years in Montana and 35 years total.”
This announcement allows the MTVRA Board nearly a year to find a new and fresh editor. Thanks for your support throughout the years as your editor and manager of your OHV and RTP grant programs. And remember to ride and enjoy the trails you have worked so hard and dedicated so much volunteer time to improve and protect!
