WHITEFIELD — Business owners, local officials and legislators are invited to “An Evening of Insight into ‘Ride the Wilds’” from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, March 10, in the Baloom of the Mountain View Grand.
The informational evening on the 1,000-miles of interconnected ATV trails in northern New Hampshire is being presented by the New Hampshire Automobile Dealers Association, the North Country Off-Highway Recreation Vehicle Coalition, and District 1 state Senator Jeff Woodburn of Dalton.
“This grass-roots economic engine in the North Country has taken hold,” Coalition president Harry Brown of Stewartstown said in a telephone interview. “And there is data to prove this.
“I hope small businesses, mom-and-pop stores, restaurants, gas stations, loan officers at banks, Chamber of Commerce members and all those who would like to see a more robust bottom line will take advantage of this no-cost chance to network and learn how the region’ rapidly changing tourist scene could get cash registers ringing.”
State reps, select board and planning board members, and other appointed and elected officials are also urged to attend.
Corrine Rober, owner-operator of Bear Rock Adventures (www.bearrockadventures.com) in Colebrook, will be among those on hand to talk about Ride the Wilds and its economic potential.
Appetizers will be provided, and a cash bar will be available.
