Off-Road Expo

The 2007 Off-Road Expo presented by Toyota, the nation's largest off-road consumer products show series, was held at the Pomona Fairplex on October 6-7. The ASA team of volunteers was on hand in our booth to inform and unite off road enthusiasts. They sold t-shirts and hats, 34 ISDRA Camping permits, signed up 83 new members and sold 83 raffle tickets for the new Extreme Performance Eco II sand car. Jon Pergl led an outstanding team of volunteers that consisted of Jerry Canning, Jim Colln Chuck Moore and Carolyn and Patty Pergl manning the booth for this show. Volunteers are the lifeblood of the ASA and these people are fine examples of ASA members who actively take part in ASA activities. Thank you all for your dedication and a job well done.

The 2007 winner of the JRS Volunteer Service award was SSSS Chairman Brian Trapp. Brian has been the lead person for all of ASA’s SSSS activities for the past 5 years. Without his help the ASA would not be able to pull off this very important fund raising and membership event.

2007 Sand Sports Super Show

The 2007 Sand Sports Super Show was a huge success for the ASA. This year we were in a different location (under shade trees) and had a different setup than in the past years. Merchandise sales were slow but we signed up 1,500 new members, 13 business sponsors and sold over 1,000 Dune permits (which brought in $9,000+). Thank you to all who purchased their permit at the booth. We lacked volunteers on Saturday & Sunday but the board of directors & Jerry Seaver stepped in and helped provide the additional manpower that was needed. Please mark your calendar for next year’s Sand Sports Super Show and volunteer 2 hours—you ask what will my 2 hours do; it will allow those volunteers who are there all 3 days to take a well deserved break and see the show.
