Dick Rideout was named as winner of this year’s Ken Ottman Award for outstanding volunteer service to the TREE Fund. Rideout marshaled a formidable team of volunteers to help plan and execute a STIHL Tour des Trees that many participants ranked as the Best. Ride. Ever. He also was a driving force behind the WAA’s successful campaign to raise $250,000 for the Bob Skiera Memorial Fund by the opening of the 2014 ISA Conference and Trade Show in Milwaukee. Dick will be honored with an official Ottman Award beer stein this October during the 2015 STIHL Tour des Trees ride in Florida.
