CANCELLED Eastman ATV Poker Derby

Out of respect for all who use our trail system, we’ve unfortunately chosen to cancel our poker derby scheduled for June 8, 2024. As trail stewards on a multi-use shared trail system, the damage that would be sustained by hundreds of machines and the subsequent repairs that would be needed given the current state of the trails with the rains we’ve received (and are forecasted next week) would far exceed any benefit our derby would provide.

With the added rain, our beaver friends have also been busy blocking culverts and flooding sections of trail making a ride of this scale unsafe.

We hope to be able to schedule a new fund raising event in the future.

Eastman ATV Executive Board

Eastman ATV March 2024 Update

Hello everyone!

Well, after a long mild and crazy winter, our riding season is almost upon us and it’s time to renew your MEMBERSHIP.

Support our club, come and help out if you can.

We at Eastman ATV hope you have had a good winter and are soon ready to ride the trails. As the snow slowly dissipates, our trail system will soon be accessible.  Many of you have ridden all winter as many snowmobile trails were closed due to lack of snow, so if you can’t ride your sled, why not ride your ATV?

This year, we are going to try a few different things. Our ride committee has come up with the new schedule for the season.  This year we will have Ryan Blair and a few others assist with the rides.  We will continue to maintain two (2) riding groups unless the group is fairly small. If you’re interested in helping out, please let us know!

We will be having our first ride April 13th, if the weather cooperates, on our Eastman Trail.

Our AGM will be held on a ride this year on May 4th.  It will be hosted during a FREE HOT DOG LUNCH at the White Mouth River, so hotdogs, chips and drinks will be provided.  If you’re interested in helping out on the board, please let us know as we have a few positions to fill this term.

This year, rather than doing a Ride For Mom, we have decided to try a Poker Derby, which will be held June 8 starting in Marchand where we started with the Ride for Mom.  If you’re interested in helping out and volunteering for this event ,please let us know.

We will try a weekend of riding in Woodridge on July 6th & 7th. Camping is available at Woodridge Campground, they also have rentals and there is the vintage store also that has cabins.  It should be a great time catching these two great routes.

Last year we got rained out for the NIGHT RIDE so we will try it again, but in August this time.

Well, that is about all I have at the moment. There hasn’t been any breaking news with the club or the ATV world except we will be having government funding coming to help with our trails and maintenance, hopefully starting this year.

Well, folks get your membership renewed and come join us on our rides! The new ride schedule will be sent upon membership renewal.  Keep in mind, some may change locations and dates due to changes in weather, but as usual we will send out notices of any changes.

We look forward to seeing everyone out again this season and don’t forget our AGM  May 4, 2024.

Eastman ATV Ride Director/ In term President

ATV Trails Closed

It’s that time of year againl. We will be installing TRAIL CLOSED signs next week and maintenance will cease until spring. I urge Off Road vehicles other than a snowmobile with snowpass plate to refrain from riding on designated groomed Snowman trails.

Eastman ATV June Update

The ATV Ride for Mom was rescheduled to Saturday October 14th. This was due to Level One Restrictions imposed ahead of the original date. There was concern from government officials about 400 plus machines in the starting area. Safety 1st, we have to respect the decisions made by the officials. We have advised sponsors, ticket holders, volunteers, and Eastman members of our new date. We have never had fire ban restrictions in October. That’s why we use it as a fall back date to be certain it will be a go. The trail was in awesome condition for the event, maybe a little wet in places, I’m sure it would have been fun!

 Sales for the October ATV Ride for Mom are still on, it’s going to be a great fall ride! Tickets $50 online at $50 per machine and $10 per extra rider for lunch ticket, extra lunch tickets available.

Congratulations to ATVMB, Bill 8 has passed and will bring funding to our ATV community. This change will be looked back to the beginning 2nd stage of organized ATVing in Manitoba. The 1st being the organization of ATVMB. Eastman ATV has been a strong supporter of organizing from the beginning, very involved with ATVMB, and you can see how it has helped develop our club by learning from ATVMB about governance and planning. We work to envision a long term plan. Talk to your board, or myself, and let’s put our ideas together to make our club the best it can be.

The trails are open. There are currently no restrictions on travel. Practice safe riding by making a ride plan, and being prepared for conditions you may not expect. Take your time and enjoy riding in a group of 2 or more. Get out and enjoy Manitoba!

Our riding schedule will be slightly revised, an update will be emailed shortly to all members.

Level One Restrictions are still in place with no backwoods travel as the risk of fire is too high.

We look forward to a safe event on Saturday October 14.

If you are still looking to ride this weekend, please check both HERE and with the RM you are riding in.
There are many other trail systems that have fire bans and/or backcountry travel bans.
