POCATELLO, ID (November 4, 2014) -- The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) is proud to announce the recent induction of one of its own, Del Albright, into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF). Del has been a long time advocate of recreation access, and originally served as BRC's organizational facilitator, after which he served for many years as a BRC Ambassador to the recreation community. Most recently, he has been serving as BRC's Director of Operations.

"Del Albright has shared 33 years of wisdom, knowledge of leadership, and supervision to help keep public lands open to the public," ORMHOF stated on their website. "He has spent time working on trails, attending meetings, writing letters, joining and starting organizations, and meeting with legislators to effectively save access to public lands."

"While [Del] is known for doing all of these things, in addition to being the ambassador for the BlueRibbon Coalition, his most significant contribution to off-road motorsports sets him apart from others in land-use: educating and mentoring the OHV community.   His extensive background in leadership, supervision, and management has allowed him to mentor many other land-use advocates through Recreational Leadership Training courses and Volunteer Leader and Land Stewardship classes," ORMHOF continued.

"Del has also mentored smaller groups, such as 4x4 clubs, as well as  'Friends of'' organizations that have modeled themselves after the Friends of the Rubicon, which Del was a principal founder of many years ago," ORMHOF concluded.

Three members of the BRC Board of Directors-John Stewart, Kay Lloyd and Jack Welch-were present at the ceremony for Del's Induction into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame.

"It was an honor to be present at the induction [of Del Albright] into the Hall of Fame," stated Jack Welch, BRC Board member. "He is very deserving and we at BlueRibbon are proud to have him as part of our TEAM!"
