Thank You Ben!

It is with mixed feelings that Ben Allen, our Lead Trail Coordinator, has resigned his position effective March 1, 2019. Ben has been hired by ASV Holdings Inc. in Grand Rapids which will result in Ben moving to the Grand Rapids area.

 

Ben is one of the best Trail Coordinators in the State. His combination of heavy equipment, construction, and mechanical skills, made him a real expert in trail design, and maintenance. He volunteered many hours on the trail, keeping our trails safe and ride-ready.

 

Ben will remain a club member, and volunteer when he can, however with job and family commitments we know Ben made the right choice. The club will look to recognize Ben's efforts during this years Pork N Ride event.
