Tour de Grants and COVID-19 Update(Updated: 03/23/2020)
Together, we are facing a truly unprecedented situation. The global corona virus pandemic is
affecting all of our families, our businesses, our communities, our way of life, and our recreation
opportunities. During this difficult time, we wanted to update you on a few decisions we have
made at NMOHVA.
First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who’s been impacted by this virus, either directly
or indirectly. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who are sick, to whom we all pray for a full
recovery. We want to thank the selfless healthcare workers and first responders around the
world who are on the front lines to care for people in need. To show our appreciation to our first
responders and military we are offering a free one year renewal of your current or past
membership and new memberships for the next 30 days. Simply email us HERE and include a
pic of you in your uniform with your favorite toys. (I would like to post these pics on our
Facebook page as well, if that is not ok just let us know when you send them. We will need your
name, address, and email included with your pic (Don’t worry we never sell your info)). We
know it’s not much but it’s a small token to show our respect and appreciation for all your hard
work and sacrifices during this difficult time.
Secondly NMOHVA has been reviewing the recommendations from the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) and the New
Mexico Department of Health. We want to make sure we do everything we can to try and protect
our members, guest, and our board members from this virus. Please review these
recommendations by the CDC and WHO and NMDOH by clicking on the links below and make
sure you have a family plan in place.

Based on these recommendations, we have decided to cancel the NMOHVA Tour de Grants
event on May 29-31, 2020. Due to the risk involved we feel it prudent to remain with our families
and try to stay healthy thru this.
We understand this a challenging time but we are hopeful that as a community, we can get
through this by taking care of ourselves and our loved ones. We will be monitoring this daily and
we will be ready to get out and enjoy our favorite hobbies when this stressful time has passed.
Until that time, stay healthy, stay happy, wrench on your toys, and hug your families and pets.
Best Wishes to all,
From your NMOHVA Board members
