15 NM s Adventure Capital -Adventure Tourism: Economic Impact Currently Gallup is attracting 32,000 adventure tourists annually from outside 50 miles Mountain Biking and Off-road Events: Over $1M for the past 8 years New Business Creation (Bike shop, B&B, outfitters, event promoters, trail guides, etc.)

16 The OHV Component Red Rock Motorsports Club, Inc. RRMS How we gained traction : Unfortunate death of a young ATV rider on a city street spurred our Economic Development Director, Mike Enfield, to build a dedicated site for safe OHV use. -Eric Gonzales and Greg Kirk took the lead and with the advice of our City Mayor, Bob Rosebrough, we formed a nonprofit 501c4 organization. -Mobilized rider input, presented to the City our wants and needs. -Directed the first RTP Grant geared towards off-road, City as Fiscal agent The Gallup Mx Track was revitalized, now called the Gallup OHV and Mx Park. As of 2015 we have been awarded $360,000 in RTP, $60,000 NM Game & Fish OHV, $2,000 Tread Lightly and over $30,000 in sponsorships (in-kind donations from county, city and private sector).

17 DREAMS DO COME TRUE - Gallup OHV Park Architect Elliot Brainard from Mammoth, CA, was instrumental in creating a park suitable to our needs. As the NOHVCC saying goes, the best land managers and designers are often the people who love the sport and are passionate about passing on the legacy to future generations. The park itself has 25 miles of trail, but with adjacent trails from other land owners we have approx. 50 miles of OHV trails.

18 Travel Management Plan - RRMS combined forces with Jeeps West in creating the most liberal use for OHV forest designations in the state of NM. Communication, teamwork, and educated enthusiasts paid off in keeping our forest open for OHVs.

19 RRMS created the first annual Spring Clean Up. We have an agreement between the City and Solid Waste to have our tipping fees waved for one week out of the year. We team up with Jeeps West, Boy Scouts, YCC and incorporate the county detainees for help. We have disposed of 100,000 lbs of trash in five years from our recreation area.

20 Education: RRMS has its own ATV Safety Institute Instructor. Trainings held at the Gallup OHV/Mx Park.

21 Club Social Rides RRMS makes it a point to come together for our annual ride in the forest!

22 Shifting Gears First sanctioned race in 26 years! Showcase our park and partnership between City and RRMS. This solidified our presence as an equal recreational group. Since then we have promoted over 20 off-road events, from desert, mx, hare scrambles, gran prix and trials competition.

23 Fund Raising Offsets maintenance, operation and insurance RRMS Yearly Sponsorship Packages

24 EVENTS: -BRING OHV PATRONS TO TOWN -EXPOSURE TO THE PARK AND GALLUP AS A WHOLE

25 Priceless Partnerships RRMS has been the recipient of numerous grants from the NM Game & Fish OHV Dept. We utilize monies for park maintenance and infrastructure improvements. Many thanks to Marc Hildesheim from NM Game & Fish, who is now with NOHVCC, for his guidance in streamlining our grant process. Many thanks to Chris Johnson, Desi Ortiz and the rest of the NM Game & Fish OHV department as well for their commitment to solid OHV ethics and pushing NM to the forefront for OHV destinations!
