2017 WATVA Annual VIP Ride - Sept 8th

The WATVA Annual VIP Ride is once again providing a chance for our "very important persons" and/or their staff to ride an ATV or UTV on a Wisconsin funded trail system and visit with members of our office and volunteers.

Lawmakers, their staff, agencies, tourism officials and other VIP's are invited to the Dyracuse Recreational Park for this day.


The VIP ride opens at 11:00 a.m. with a reception and lunch meeting. We will start riding shortly thereafter. Riding opportunities throughout the day will be available using demonstration ATV's / UTV's by our industry partners. Discussions are held throughout the day with various representatives about topics of your choice.

The WATVA VIP Ride is a great place to discuss legislative objectives and expand your business networks with industry specialists from around the state. We encourage casual discussions throughout the day!

What To Bring

What To Bring: Our VIP ride is held rain or shine, and in the past we've had our share of rain! We suggest bringing a change of clothes in case you encounter some mud on the trails. If you have your own helmet, please feel free to bring that along with any other gear of your choosing. If you don't have any safety gear don't worry, we have a large selection of helmets, goggles and gloves for everyone.

Safety Course Information

Wisconsin has mandatory safety education for anyone riding a public trail. The requirement for this certification is: 

  • Anyone who is at least 12 years old and anyone born on or after January 1, 1988. These ATV operators must carry their safety certification card and they must display it to law enforcement officers when requested. 
  • Exception: In 2013, the Wisconsin ATV Association helped pass legislation to exempt the mandatory safety education rule during an organized demonstration ride. The VIP falls under this type of event so participants do not need to have any ATV safety certificate. 

A brief introductory safety course will be conducted on site for those that do not know how to ride. This is not the same DNR safety course mentioned above.
