Eastman ATV 2022 Mid July Update

A big thank you to everyone for attending the ATV Ride for Mom. It was a very successful event, everyone I asked  enjoyed the food, the ride, the uplifting atmosphere everyone created. Seeing so many other enthusiasts come out to support the ATV Ride for Mom was heartwarming to say the least.

The lunch area was an enjoyable place to hang out, to see and hear the many very nice machines that were showing up, along with old and new friends.  Everyone enjoyed the incredible weather we had that day, no rain and all blue skies. All positive comments, no accidents or injuries reported, or that we are aware of and that’s a win too!

The volunteers were committed to make the ride, and event safe, job well done! A very special thank you to all the volunteers, you made the event happen by working hard hard and having fun. I hear most volunteers plan on coming back next year.

I would also like to thank our many sponsors, our ATV community sees your support, and many are your customers. We are grateful to our sponsors who provide the funding to put on the event, to the volunteers of Eastman ATV that provide the manpower to run the event and provide a signed route for the day, and to you, the ridder, who enjoys the ride, and makes a donation to support our cause, “Cancer Care Manitoba”.


Eastman ATV had a ride this last Saturday, Mars Hill / Gull Lake. Epic ride, so much fun, great trails, some hilltop scenic sites, lunch stop at Gull with washrooms and beach for a swim. Close to the end of the ride we found a trail with a good water level that you could easily bypass on dry if you wanted, all in gravel so the water was fairly clean, being familiar with the depth, a few ATVs had some clean fun in the water.


Eastman ATV Next Ride Aug 20th at Seddons Corner
We have many rides to look forward to. All members get email updates on specifics of all rides. From beginner to experienced, come enjoy the full day rides with Eastman ATV. Feel free to ask any questions before or after you join.

Eastman ATV is doing trail maintenance work with a tractor, some of the most aggressive repairs we have ever done. We want to purchase the equipment and not rent anymore. If your company considers a donation of $250- $500 or more, we will put your logo on our Eastman ATV website. Contact me if you are interested in helping Eastman ATV Association Inc.


Do you have a New riding area or Best riding area? Mine would be the Marchand – Woodridge valley ride. We are all interested to know what your favorite ride is, and if I can share your comment.

Eastman ATV April 2022 Update

Let’s get rolling!  A big Hello to the motorized community of Manitoba. The beginning  of our riding season is quickly approaching, so now is the time to ensure that you are really ready. Get your tune-up done, whatever that means for you. At minimal, change your oil, clean or replace the air filter, and check your tires and tire pressure. Remember to order or pick up a new helmet, goggles, gloves, rainwear, or any other supplies you might need. Plan ahead now and prepare for the season, in order to  really enjoy the full experience of being out in the middle of nowhere.

I want to thank everyone who has joined, or will be joining any motorized off-road club in Manitoba. The organized motorized off-road community is the only non-profit trail organization in Manitoba that is completely self-sustaining.

The non-motorized trail organizations are provincially funded by Trails Manitoba and have recently received millions and because of this endowment fund, they are able to  access money as they see fit. Unfortunately, Trails Manitoba does not  support motorized trail organizations. We are aware that another ATV organization applied to Trails Manitoba and was denied funding.  It seems that the off-road community gets the cold shoulder from the Province of Manitoba. If you have any questions as to why, please write to your provincial MP’s and ask them.

The trails & trail systems require significantly more funding in order to properly manage the official ATV Multi Use trails in Manitoba. Eastman ATV and other ORV organizations are committed to making it safer. Because the province is resistant in providing  funding, we do what we can to raise funds: every membership counts. The following  link  will allow you access membership to Eastman ATV. https://eastmanatv.com/product/membership-2022 


Eastman ATV has sent out the Ride Schedule for 2022. All members will begin getting  separate emails entitled “Eastman ATV Ride Update ” which will provide specific information about each ride including any revisions or updates made to the scheduled rides. These emails will also inform members of other events supported by the club. This year we have added additional Rides with a different format. They are intended for youth; slower paced and shorter in length than regular rides. We also plan to have an educational component to the ride. As always, more information will be sent  before the rides.

ATV Ride for Mom is a go, register online https://eastmanatv.com/product/2022-ride-for-mom-registration It’s going to be an Epic Ride taking place on June 4th. Signs leaving Marchant will direct you to the registration site, which opens at 9AM. The Ride itself, starts at 10:00 AM (a soft start)

We are pleased to inform you that we have our largest board and RFM committee ever. This  allows all volunteer tasks to be more manageable, however we still need  a T-Shirt person willing to take on the garments.

Eastman ATV members and friends of Eastman ATV, join me in saying thank you to these generous people who give their time and energy to ensure our ATV experience is the best it can be.  A big “Thank You” to the volunteers who have stepped up to the board, and the various additional positions in the last year. 

Thank You

President Eastman ATV Association

Eastman ATV 2021 AGM

Thank you for your time today, please plan on attending Eastman ATVs AGM

When: Saturday April 9, 2022 10 AM

Where: Le Club Les Bles Dor 1254 Dawson Rd.  Lorette Mb.

Why: An AGM  is a required part of our constitution, and an opportunity for members to be involved in the process. Our last AGM  did not have enough members attending to make quorum so this year we have to approve 2 years.  I expect it was because it was at the end of the season instead of the beginning due to COVID.  Please take some time out of your Saturday April 9th day so your club can continue.

You need to be a member in good standing to be elected to the board or to vote at the AGM. (Member in good standing means you have paid this years membership)

Please email me back that you plan on attending at info@eastmanatv.com  so I can be sure I have enough people to make quorum. Looking forward to seeing you there, come meet your fantastic board.

Eastman ATV is growing every year. If you have missed a few years we encourage you to come back. Read below: we want this organization to be what you want it to be. Come help guide your club into the super club it’s becoming. 

Volunteers

Some ATV organizations have had challenges because of Covid. Eastman ATV has had challenges too, but we are increasing in numbers and expect further growth this year. As we expand, we recognize we need some talented people to help us.  Come and be a part of a successful team, driven by a consensus board, that makes it work well. We have asked for help with IT and we have very skilled volunteers. We asked for a photo/ video support person and now have a member who stepped up. Thank you Eastman ATV, What a very impressive community of support we have here!

I have one other request for help; regarding merchandise, like T-shirts, hoodies and hats.  The role  could easily be divided into three parts depending on who wants to do what.

Person 1.) Distribution of sales, collection of payments. All offline at rides you attend.

Person 2.) Taking orders, keeping track of all orders and monies collected.

Person 3.) Managing  online stores for garments. The division of roles is very flexible. This could be one person who does it all, or two people who split it ,or  three people, as mentioned above.
