ATVAM Attempting World's Largest ATV Parade
Silver Bay, Minnesota To Host Convention

Tired of attempting to break the world record for most lightning strikes survived, the most one-finger push-ups or highest speed dragged behind a motorcycle (all true records)? The All Terrain Vehicle Association of Minnesota (ATVAM) has set out to grab the record for the world's largest ATV parade and everybody's invited to join in the glory.

Claiming the title has become quite the horse race and many different groups have won the title. This year the ATVAM intends to steal the honors from the current record holder, southeastern Kentucky's Harlan County Ridge Runners.
ATVAM's goal is to have 2,500 ATVs for the parade, held to celebrate the association's 25th anniversary.

Currently, the Harlan County Ridge Runners in Evarts, Kentucky hold the record for the longest ATV Parade. The Ridge Runners set the record of 1,138 ATVs in a parade in the summer of 2006, surpassing the old record of 687 set in Hurley, Wisconsin.

The ATVAM record-breaking event also will be a memorial for C.J. Ramstad, who was owner of MSPN and editor and publisher of Minnesota Off-Road. He and his 17-year-old son, J.J., died in an auto accident in May 2007.

Registration is $12.00 per ATV and you must pre-register by May 9, 2008. Each registrant will receive one memorabilia ATV Parade T-shirt. ATVAM - Preregistration Form

ATVAM encourages attendees to bring friends, family and, of course, ATVs to make a weekend out of the event. Other activities include the Moose Walk and the Red Dot trails there are over 50 miles of riding, some of the nicest trails in the region.
