    Well if they are facts, I guess we can't argue...

    Curious what AMC's tax status has to do with SAR funding?

    Well, if they paid state taxes to NH, that's more money to the state, right? I'm pretty sure the AMC has too much money to spend foolishly after the new logo was unveiled.

    No speculation here, Cap'n.

    I'll dig up last year's numbers given some time. I've got the figures on ATV accidents from 2018.

    As my HS math teacher said, "figures don't lie, but liars figure."

    Your post is tremendous.

    Yes, its over and was reportedly quite successful for the local economy. Local groups and vendors have come up with various activities to fill the summer and into fall weekends but this is it for major events this year. There was a fall event sponsored by one of the major ATV makers for a couple of years but it shifted somewhere else.
