Learn snowmobile, OHRV rules

CONCORD — New Hampshire snowmobile and OHRV trail riders have a new resource available, the 2013-2014 N.H. OHRV and Snowmobile Digest of Regulations. The publication is packed full of need-to-know information on rules of the trail road, riding responsibly and registering an OHRV or snowmobile.

There are general trail maps and information on where to find more detailed trail guides. Check out the new digest at ride.nh.gov/OHRV/ohrv.htm, or pick up a free copy at any Fish and Game office or at many registration agents, dealers and businesses throughout the state.

One section of particular interest details the license and age restrictions for riding. New Hampshire Fish and Game Department officials note that a number of new rules are in place for minors operating Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles, but snowmobile youth requirements remain unchanged.

SportsZone installs new indoor turf

DERRY — The SportsZone Indoor Sports Complex announced the completion of the installation of its new SofStep 200 Plus granular rubber infill artificial turf in their facility at 7 A St.

“We stretched the use of our original field for almost 14 years and are very excited about what a significant upgrade this is for our facility,” said SportsZone owner Dennis Reed. “The field lines, goal boxes and markings for lacrosse are all an integral part of the turf system.”

The turf field was provided and installed by Turf and Tennis Surfaces of Bartlett IL. The removal of the old turf to the complete installation of the new turf took just seven days. The new field can be seen at the location or on the SportsZone website, nhsportszone.com.
