Eastman ATV March 2020 Update

Our 2020 Rides & Events Schedule 

Eastman ATV is looking forward to an eventful riding season. A ride update, will be posted on our website approximately a week before each ride, in order to remind and to confirm that the ride is indeed taking place.
Our pre-ride group (who ride the route beforehand), might decide that the route requires a few changes and therefore, new paths are discovered. These rides are always enjoyable.  Having riders drive through the route beforehand allows for a larger group, on ride day, to travel at a manageable pace with planned stops. Please feel free to inquire about riding along on the pre-ride, which will double your rides this year to a grand total of sixteen.

Renew your Membership

We are welcome and open to new members who would like to be part of our ORV community. As part of our community, you will be informed and kept up to date on all rides and other important dates and events.
However, membership doesn’t require a commitment stating that you will attend all club activities and events, everything is voluntary. The membership decal now has “Member Trail Pass” for those who want to voluntarily pay to support trail development and you ride with your own crew so to speak. Your support allows us, as a group, to continue building and maintaining ATV trails. We are grateful for you support. Your membership should feel at home with you.Thank-you for renewing with Eastman ATV if this is your second year or more.  We have noticed that more individuals are remaining or returning to the club. We are grateful for your commitment to our organization. If you are a returning member, we’d appreciate feedback as to why you are returning, so that we can continue to   grow and be a club that works for you.
We have members who have been with Eastman for a number of years and feel that these individuals deserve recognition for their years of support. As a small token of appreciation, we represent these individuals as the gold foundation on our logo

The outdoor show had good attendance, maybe we should attend as a club?

Eastman ATV February 2020 Update

Service equipment – Renewal

What should you be doing now for preparing for spring riding? Get done what you can get done now, plan the rest and the rides are more enjoyable.

Make sure your registration and insurance are up to date and a copy in your ORV.

Of course see your service manual but in most cases you should change your oil and service your air filter before 1st spring ride for sure.  If running through winter off and add a little gas line antifreeze if it’s outside overnight at all and run premium fuel.

If its not running well and you don’t know why bring it in now for service, or make your service plan so you can enjoy the full riding season.  

Having a reliable running machine when you’re riding in areas that have no cell service can become critical. For safety considerations I strongly encourage enjoying the benefits of a well serviced machine. Get it done now.

We continue to evolve as an organization and I ask that you come be part by can renew your membership online. Membership can be about the club or the trail.

Happy Holidays

The New Year is fast approaching and we are planning for 2020.  We are hearing people want to be more involved, thank you for wanting to step up, consider joining a committee or helping with the ATV Ride for Mom, there is something for everyone.

We had a great time at the Wind Up and raised $2,300. We sold 93 tickets so right there for the 1st annual, that’s a hit! It was really nice to see everybody that came out, the door prizes were enjoyed and good entertainment. Dave Lee was awarded for 10 years of incredible service to the ATV community.  Thanks again Dave for your service with Eastman ATV. We will put The Wind Up on our calendar for next year so come join your extended family or bring your own. A big thanks to Eastman ATV friends and members for coming out! Thanks to everyone who helped and supported the Wind Up, we are grateful.

ATVMB is providing maps of all the official ATV trails in Manitoba. Here is the link to the Ride Command “Mobile App Features” YouTube video: CLICK

Our Trail Director now has formed a committee as the development and maintenance is becoming a larger consideration for the club as we expand our system. 

To better use volunteer time we will add a Ride Committee to our board with its own director and club members helping out. We had many great rides this past summer and we are already looking forward to next year.

Ontario is considering making roads more accessible to ORV see this… CLICK

The 1st ride of 2020 will remain an open ride to members and non-members. This ride we really appreciate the support of experienced club members to help out. It can be a lot of fun with many new riders or new to organized ridding learning new ridding practices.
