TrailCon USA

BRC Executive Director, Greg Mumm, To Host A Town Hall Meeting!

ANTIGO, WI (July 22, 2013) -- The folks behind TrailCon USA are opening the gates for another fantastic recreation event this year on August 9th, 2013, at 1 pm CST. It will run until 7 pm on Saturday, August 10th. "TrailCon" is short for "Trail Conference," and as the event organizers can tell you from first hand experience, it's "your one stop event for exploring recreation in Wisconsin and surrounding regions!" It is also the very best opportunity to interact with other trail advocates and enthusiasts representing a full spectrum of trail-based recreationists from around the area. The event takes place in Antigo, Wisconsin, which is part of the County of Trails (Langlade County).

TrailCon USA features vendors and booths from a wide range of outdoor recreation. This year you can take to the trail with ATV & UTV demo rides, learn about camping with your horse, discover all the exciting snowmobiling, full-size four wheeling, and other trail based recreation opportunities, or even try out the Wisconsin DOT's road motorcycle simulator. Other great activities at this event include the new "Demonstration Village," where you can try out the latest models of ATVs and UTVs on their off-road demonstration track and more.  There is also exciting motorcycle and ATV flat track racing at the conclusion of Saturday's events that you can watch at the fairground grandstands. There is something for everyone!

The TrailCon USA event in Antigo will also host workshops as part of the event with plenty of information to help enthusiasts ensure sustainable trail access.

The BlueRibbon Coalition will be involved in one such workshop.  BRC's Executive Director, Greg Mumm, along with Wisconsin ATV Association President, Randy Harden, will host a town hall meeting to present the broader vision for regional cooperation at the TrailCon USA event.  Get busy, get involved and get ready to have a great time while you're at it! (There's no reason recreation advocacy can't sometimes be fun!)

There will be opportunities to learn how we can create a "Partnerships In Trail Access." ATVs, snowmobiles, motorcycles, full-size four wheel drive vehicles, bicycles and equestrians all share many of the same struggles and issues with land access. Learn how we can work together to protect and increase our riding areas!

"We have high expectations for the TrailCon event again this year," said Greg Mumm, BRC Executive Director. "BRC is excited that this event will really bring people together in the region. We encourage everyone that can to attend the TrailCon USA this year, and join with us to make the experience a real boon for recreational access!"

To take part in this year's great event, visit the TrailCon Website today!
