WINTER PARK, Fla. (Aug. 18, 2016) - Bonnier Corporation, one of the
largest special-interest publishing groups in the country, has acquired
the Sand Sports Super Show, the world's premier sand sports trade
show and consumer expo, it was announced today by Matt Hickman,
vice president of brand strategies, Bonnier Corp. The strategic
acquisition solidifies Bonnier Corp.'s leadership in the off-road,
sand sports and motorsports segments, complementing the company's
repertoire of renowned publications and events geared toward
enthusiast audiences.

The Sand Sports Super Show is an annual trade show and consumer
expo where thousands of sand sports fans gather in Costa Mesa, Calif.,
to experience the latest products and industry innovations. Within its
community, the event is fundamental in uniting and mobilizing
enthusiasts, cultivating growth, and fostering safety awareness.

"Bonnier Corp. specializes in connecting high-value, passionate
enthusiast audiences with our partners," Hickman said. "The addition of
the Sand Sports Super Show furthers our market-segment leadership
and unlocks unlimited potential for our customer groups: spectators,
participants, sponsors and exhibitors."

This is the latest evolution of Bonnier Corp.'s presence within the off-
road, sand sports and motorsports realm. The company acquired Family
Events, a leading producer of motorsports-enthusiast events, in October
2014. Management of the Sand Sports Super Show will be folded into
the Family Events division.

"When Family Events was acquired by Bonnier Corp., one of our key
strategies was to seek out great events to add to our roster of shows,"
said Mike Moore, president of Bonnier Corp.'s Family Events division.
"The Sand Sports Super Show perfectly aligns with our strategic plan -
it's a great show with terrific partners and sponsors, and we plan to build
on its success in the years to come."

"The Sand Sports Super Show will be in good hands with a
knowledgeable steward to nurture continued growth and excitement for
the industry," said Donald Murphy, founder, president and owner of the
Sand Sports Super Show. "Family Events has produced exceptional
motorsports entertainment for more than 30 years and continues to
thrive within Bonnier Corp., so I'm confident that this new venture will
propel the show into a future of further success."

The 18th annual Sand Sports Super Show will be held at the OC Fair
and Event Center in Costa Mesa Sept. 16-18. Sponsors, exhibitors,
participants and key stakeholders will remain, and Murphy will work with
Family Events on the expo.

The ownership transition of the Sand Sports Super Show is effective
immediately. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

      Hello-
       
      New to the forum so luckily there is some help out there lol. Recently bought a 2008 Joyner 1600cc sand viper and loving it. Took it out and had a little accident with a tree stump lol. The stump hit directly on my passenger side tie rod end and broke the heim joint that connects the tie rod end to the wheel. Does anyone know the size of the adjustable heim joint so I can order one? I am having a hard time sourcing one quickly. I am also guessing since it is an outter tie rod end, that it is LH pitched rather than RH? thanks for any help anyone can provide. This is again for the outter tie rod end heim joint that snapped. Thanks

      2016 Cub Cadet Challenger 700 has a hitch receiver that requires a vertical pin as opposed to a horizontal pin to attach hitches.  I'm looking for an 18" hitch entender that will attach using a vertical pin and then accept a horizontal pin for a trailer hitch.  I've looked everywhere.  Any ideas on where to find one?  TIA

      Hello,
      First time buggy/UTV buyer here and I have been looking at a 2016 Joyner Sand Viper 1100cc.  
      First of all, and overall comments on that particular model or recommendations?  I am a very amateur rider and am just looking to have some occasional fun in the surrounding desert areas of Vegas as well as do some low key canyons and small mountain areas.
      Main question is, what are the options to tow the buggy aside from trailering it?  I have been looking into a tow bar but am finding very limited information on anyone installing a way to connect a tow bar to the rig and tow it that way.  Any insights are greatly appreciated!
