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. https://atvrideformom.com/

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!

Eastman ATV February Update

Membership to the Manitoba ATV Community

 Welcome back to, the time of year, when we renew our commitment to our ATV community. It’s becoming more evident that “organization” is making a big difference in our relationships with fellow motorized and non-motorized outdoor enthusiasts.  As the government is preparing to invest in our community, we recognize the value of belonging to an ATV club. With  ATVMB ( our provincial federation ), developing ATV clubs, and working to find good answers to challenges, this has supported the province in reaching a positive decision. So please, if you have ever considered joining an ATV club in Manitoba, now is the time. It matters! Any club, which is  part of ATVMB, will to some degree, be recognized financially. Membership numbers will be of value. 

Eastman ATV Membership

 Membership will be open February 1st. 

We have included a short survey. This information is intended to increase support for our organization, equipment, volunteers, and safety concerns. The intention is to share nationally (all names will be removed), in order to identify possible improvements that would benefit our club. The survey  may also help a sponsor realize  that supporting  our organization has value.

Volunteers

 We have many members who join Eastman ATV to support our cause and we are grateful for every membership we receive. Our intention is not to make anyone feel  obligated to volunteer. Some of our members  like to volunteer and some are considering volunteering. We wanted to give some clarity on the volunteering positions that are available.  We are always willing to talk to anyone who wants more information  before joining. Last year we had a volunteer clean up and ended up raising $800 dollars. It was an easy, enjoyable morning. We have a role for you, if you want it.

News on our AGM and the Eastman ATV Ride for Mom will be coming soon…

January 2023 Eastman ATV Update

Happy New Year to you and your families. I hope you were able to spend time together and see friends and loved ones. My family brings to mind my ATV family, and the many friends we all have with each other. Eat well, enjoy those around you, and we can all look forward to seeing each other in the 2023 riding season.

Eastman ATV welcomes the new year with interest and excitement. 

The BIG NEWS 

It’s looking like ATVMB will  get provincial funding based on a proposal ATVMB put forward a number of years ago. The proposal was  inclusive with the snowmobile federation. The bill that has passed 1st reading will help both federations. It is still a year or 2 before we see an impact, if the bill passes. So great news but nothing is final yet.

Why join an ATV club?

In Eastman ATVs Constitution and Bylaws we have;

Article 2. Purpose To promote and practice safe and environmentally responsible ATV riding, to protect ATV access to public land, (in summary). The Number of members in organized ORV clubs is becoming more important now than ever before,especially  as we move forward with the ATVMB.

2023 Eastman ATV membershipswill soon be available online and will have an attached survey.  We appreciate your help in building a club identity. Once you are a member,you will get both the Eastman ATV Monthly Update ( this email ), and the Eastman ATV Ride Update, sent out 7 to 3 days before our rides, pending storms. Give a friend or relative the gift of membership.  

We will again provide the Ride Schedule once we have membership open. It will give the scheduled locations with dates for the ATV rides for the year. We know we have a large number of members that attend few, if any rides, and may not be involved at all in the club. Thank you for joining or re-joining; your membership support is greatly appreciated. For those of you joining us for the rides, Let the good times Roll, it’s going to be a fun year!  

See our store for hats, T-shirts, jackets and our 2023 Calendar, I love it. Give a friend or relative the gift of membership.  We have exciting announcements on offering additional  ride styles, stay tuned.

Its is going to be a fantastic year

Kindly

Don C. Eidse
