3-11-17 Trash Pick-up and Member Appreciation Day

We filled the roll off dumpster !!!! So many volunteer workers today for the trash pickup and member appreciation day . Our winners were the shoals ATV riders with 40 bags and 3 tires and lots of other odd items. A close second was team long/knisley with 31 bags of trash . And we had many others with ranger loads of rubbish . Our riding area looks much better a noticeable difference was made . THANK YOU ALL FOR YOU TIME TODAY WITH RATHER CHILLY CONDITIONS OUR ATTENDANCE WAS OUTSTANDING!!!!!

FYI - Shoals ATV riders decided they like sliders and dogs so well they donated their winnings back to NATRA to feed everyone again ... I think we can do it for the straw project day coming up in late April .... TBA !

From Kevin lash
LISTEN guys and gals ESPECIALLY single track folks. The Poker Run event is in less than 2 months. To put something like this on it takes workers. This event is hosted by the SXS guys although bikes and quads can participate. This is their yearly event just like us bike folks have our hare scramble (usually 2 or 3). When we have our races, the SXS's show up in full force to help and some even help put in the course. It's time for some pay back. Below is a list of work areas.... Be thinking of the times when you were racing and came to a road crossing and saw a SXS sitting there blocking traffic OR them riding around with their 2way radio's making sure we all got out of the woods safely. You definitely don't have to be a bike guy to volunteer LOL BUT I think we should step up...Here's the list: Gate, 5 Check points (where you draw a card for your poker hand, The Basement, Mini Bowl, Bowl, 2-Step and Event Parking. The event parking is where the participant will draw their 1st AND last card for their hand. We need food servers, some people at a Raffle sales table, sweep riders, guides (possibly), Pit police, help with sitting up (Friday) and Clean-up (Sunday). You can also say "Put me Anywhere". About once a week, I'll put out an updated list. If you have questions, 1st consult the flyer. If the answer is not there then I probably won't know either but I know folks who will.


From SxS trail CommitEe

Environmental Workday: April 29th -Mark it on your calendars

This is the final list in the work we needed to do for AFM and TDEC this year.

This is a ways off but wanted to let everyone know that we will be putting straw bales and erosion fencing on some hills on this date. We have 7 spots that we need to concentrate on. The trails have all been re routed away from these areas. If we can get 3-4 folks with a utv, plus a few others in each team, we can knock the work out in a few hours that morning, eat some lunch and then ride in the afternoon. Hopefully we get a turnout like we did last July, at least the temperatures won't be as bad this time of year.


From the president

Its been a great year for NATRA!  Thanks to the efforts of an army of workers our Club has surpassed several milestones  The club has made huge progress in satisfying the requirements of AFM and the TEDC. Club members stepped up and made the improvements that made the difference. My last conversations with the TEDC and AFM representatives were very positive. However NATRA is not out of the woods. We will from here on out, need to continue those efforts, and will always be under their watchful eye. The Club exceeded everyones guess on membership for 2016, and we already have 888 Primary Active members for 2017. I'm not aware of any new issues or controversies. Everyone seems to be getting along and working together much better this year and we already have two events on the Calendar for 2017. It has been an absolute pleasure to serve NATRA this past year. All of your efforts and support have taken the hard parts and made them much easier.  I have always said that any of you could no doubt do a much better job than I have as president. I have always extended the invitation to replace me and a willingness to step aside to anyone who wanted a shot, and was willing to work to see their Ideas come to pass. Brandon McClain has stepped up and expressed an interest to be more involved this year in the decision making process. I welcome that 100%.  I will step aside as president and honor his willingness to put some sweat behind his Ideas. Brandon has done a fine job as Vice president is is well able to Lead the Club as president. The transition will be uneventful as he is familiar with all the aspects of the job. I am excited about the prospect of taking a step back and look forward to investing more time with my Family. I support Brandon 100% and will support his Ideas. There are always many ways to get the same results. Brandon has the capacity to implement his Ideas. And I think Brandon Loves WP and NATRA as much as I do and will make a great President.

Thanks for your patience, once everyone gets used to the changes I'm sure it will go even smoother.

Trail update: today we worked on cleaning up child's play 57 and 91 Lovelady shortcut ( had to re route this trail a little bit) , 58 tj road is like a boulevard now thanks to the loggers. Thanks to whoever had already spent some time on child's play it made our job easier today. We also connected the new section of 70 chiefs cutoff to gas stop 66 on the east trail right before leaving the property, just follow the green arrows. We also flagged off the trail to connect the west trail at gas stop to Larry rd. If anyone has a few free minutes both of the gas stop logging trails could use some trimming work. Also, after re riding 69 husquvarna today, going to work on the gas stop connector, noticed it could still use some cleanup on the south end if anyone has time. Thanks in advance is someone can help on these two items.

Thanks to James Coggin and his daughter Lauren, Steven Hollins, Jessie hall , and Kaylee for helping today.

Thanks To James Coggin and Robert Broussard for getting a bunch of our new signs up. I hope everyone keeps there cameras handy. 

01/16/17
keep in mind you MUST be an active NATRA member before you show up in Westpoint to ride. We are not signing up people in Westpoint. You will be given a written warning and asked to leave. 
01/15/17

We have a TON of folks that are re-entering all their information in and singing up as new members when all they had to do is sign in and click renew and be done in seconds. This does not effect NATRA it just creates more work for you and will get you a notification saying you are dropped from the system on Feb 1.



01/13/17


Just a reminder the Monthly NATRA meeting is in the morning at the Westpoint Community Center. Breakfast starts at 7:30 and is $8.00 a person. The meeting starts at 9am. After the meeting, we have a couple of task that need to be accomplished. Our New Signs need to be hung and the Arrows need to be removed from all of the trails on MR Legg's Property. I will bring the signs with me but I will have to leave after the meeting and get our shop opened up. If you are unable to help don't beat yourself up, we will have plenty more opportunities to help. I'm working on a new interactive Module for the web-site to help us communicate work needs better with the membership. Once I master it then I will make it live. So I can at that time answer the questions I'm sure will arise.
