He spoke at the evening anniversary event, and talked about the need for OHV organizations like ASA to work with BLM to raise safety awareness in the aftermath of the tragic OHV accident at Johnson Valley. "The organized groups and the individual, both spectators and participants, all have a critical stake in the future of the sport and all must take personal responsibility when it comes to public safety," he said.
Abbey also announced the winner of the Jerry R Seaver Volunteer Recognition Award. This year's winners were Irma and Gary Johnson and family, long-time Dunes recreationists.
