The officers will include President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, 4-Wheel Drive Member-At-Large, All-Terrain Vehicle Member-At-Large, and Off-Highway Motorcycle Member-At-Large.

At noon participants will travel to Byrd's Adventure Center to begin celebrating their new state association. Byrd's will have a special lunch available from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.. From 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. all are invited to join in a fun-packed scavenger hunt for prizes. The scavenger trail will be drivable by 4WD, ATV and off-highway motorcycle.

The celebration will end with a magnificent potluck dinner. For the potluck:
