Eastman ATV April Update

It’s going to be a great riding year with our 1st ride on the Eastman ATV Trail. You will get a copy of the exact EATV trail on our color brochure when you receive your membership. I will send you an email, before the ride, with specific information to help you enjoy the ride. The 1st ride we ask members not to invite guests as we need to keep our number of people in check, and we will send an update before the ride.

ATV Ride for Mom
Is canceled this year due to Covid 19. We look forward to Saturday, June 4th, 2022.

Trail Maintenance / Environmental Development

We have attached our work schedule and will update as necessary. If you want to come and help, feel free! Our members are welcome to come and join the fun!
We know, that if good trails are available, the majority of the ORV community will use and enjoy them. A healthy, properly developed trail plan, provides manageable environmental protection, allowing for regrowth. Trails can be moved if needed for environmental management reasons. Having the majority of traffic on maintained trails, is the healthiest long term protection of untouched environments.

Membership
Duration; March 1, 2021 to February 28, 2022
$45 online for membership at https://eastmanatv.com/product/membership-2021
All members receive a “Membership / Voluntary Trail Pass ” decal, 2021 Eastman ATV Membership card, and an official Eastman ATV Trail map.

First Aid
Eastman ATV is planning on holding a St Johns First Aid course. If interested in joining us, please let me know. I can say that I am glad to be here doing my part to support organized ATV riding. Thank you Eastman ATV members for your team work

2021 ATV Ride for Mom Update

Due to the uncertainty of COVID restrictions, the 2021 ATV Ride for Mom, scheduled for Saturday June 5th, is canceled.

We have moved the ATV Ride for Mom to Saturday June 4th 2022!! Last year, the ATV Ride for Mom, raised over $14,000 for Cancer Care Manitoba. The funds raised were achieved without the ride event and without the support of our sponsors. Making a difference doesn’t always require a complicated agenda.

This year, I’m asking our membership to consider investing their time to help CancerCare Manitoba. I will be reporting back after we meet in mid summer, to make a plan. Please let me know if you want to help.

The ATV Ride for Mom is a committee formed by Eastman ATV and we do not take the decision to cancel lightly. This event is there to help the health of Manitobans. Ultimately, the ride cancellation is about respecting the health and well being of our health care workers, and fellow Manitobans. COVID restrictions may still be in place this coming fall. Therefore, planning a ride for that time of year, does not guarantee that the ride wouldn’t be canceled. We want this event to stand out in every one’s mind, while doing right by all Manitobans along with visitors from Ontario, Saskatchewan, Minnesota and North Dakota! The ride welcomes all guests and we don’t want to prevent anyone from attending. So yes, the responsible thing to do is to have the ATV Ride for Mom June, Saturday 4th, 2022.

Thank you Deb Nickel, founder of this event. The energy this event brings to the club is very positive, and the spirit of the “event” touches most of those who have participated. Our club is proud to continue to do our best with treating all RFM events with the care and respect each event deserves.

The ATV Ride for Mom is looking for a breast cancer survivor, to share their story, using Eastman ATV as a platform to raise money for Cancer Care Manitoba. It can be a difficult decision to share one’s story and not everyone is able to do it. However, your story can help and touch many lives. If you are able, please consider this sharing opportunity. You can choose your level of involvement; a little or a lot, this year or next year.

Thank you

Phone format, with the Eastman ATV trail map. We will have scheduled trail clean up and repair dates in advance. These will be added to our Ride Schedule, which will then be forwarded to you in an upcoming update.

2020 Ride For Mom Donation Campaign

Annually in June our club does a “Ride for Mom”, the goal of which is to raise money for CancerCare MB. We are very proud to state that over the last four years the Ride for Mom has raised over $54,000, all of which was turned over to CancerCare MB to be used at their discretion in the research and treatment of cancer in this Province.
This year, due to Covid-19, there was not an actual Ride for Mom, however despite that, the Eastman ATV Club has instead decided to launch a Ride for Mom Campaign to raise funds. The Ride for Mom Campaign will run from September 15 th toOctober 31 st , 2020, after which all donations will be turned over to CancerCare MB. I am asking you to consider making a donation for this very worthy cause. All donations in any amount are more than welcome and tax receipts will be issued by CancerCare MB for any donation over $15. We have several easy options available to assist you with your donation:

  1. You can make your donation directly to CancerCare MB by following the this link to their site. The advantage of this is that you will receive your tax receipt by email very promptly. CancerCare MB link is: http://support.cancercarefdn.mb.ca/goto/EastmanATVRideForMom
  2. Make a cheque payable to CancerCare MB Foundation and mail it to Eastman ATV, 6-1329 Niakwa Road East, Winnipeg, MB, R2J 3T4. Please also include your name, mailing address and email address for tax receipting purposes.
  3. You can e-transfer your donation to rideformom@eastmanatv.com Please include your name, mailing address and
    email address for tax receipting purposes. In order to ensure your e-donation is secure, please use the following question and password: Question: What is the name of this campaign? Answer: rideformom
  4. You can contact Eastman ATV Club President Donald Eidse at deidse@eastmanatv.com or 204- 558-5690 for more information.

Cancer is a devastating disease that touches our hearts deeply, as we all have loved ones and friends that it has impacted in the past, is doing so right now and unfortunately will do so again in the future. However, your donation helps enable ongoing cancer research, which equates to new cutting-edge treatments and drugs, which in some cases translates into cures or longer life expectancies.
Once again, thanks very much for supporting this very worthy cause. Its people like you that make a difference.

Many of us have enjoyed a good riding season so far this year, the June ATV Ride for Mom was cancelled due to Covid 19 and along with that our opportunity to collect for Cancer Care Manitoba. The ATV RIDE for MOM is still of great interest to our community, what are we doing this year? I’ve been asked a number of times, some members have been raising money for CancerCare Manitoba and we want to share some ideas with you as to how we can all help. We are doing a simple fundraiser, through members, friends and families. We want to make this as easy as possible to make it successful for you & our community to help CancerCare Manitoba. Stay tuned….More details coming. All donations are 100% to CancerCare Manitoba.  

The ATV Ride for Mom is a committee of Eastman ATV and this event gives a growing purpose to our organization.  This event is becoming more recognized every year, it’s both an important cause and great family ride all in one.  

We continue to have rides for members only, we allow members to invite a guest or 2 for the next ride and we will continue to send an email to 2020 members before each ride, one week or so before the ride to confirm ride details.  Membership is annual look at our Events tab at our website for updated information on Rides. Join for $45 a year to Join Eastman ATV  and get your Membership and Voluntary Trail Pass decal.  https://eastmanatv.com/product/membership-2020

2020 Ride For Mom Canceled

In light of Covid-19, we think the responsible action is to cancel the 2020 ATV Ride for Mom. We considered having it at a later date but found it challenging to find an appropriate date that wouldn’t interfere with already established ATV fundraising rides. We have our wind-up ride in the fall and to squeeze in the “Ride for Mom” in the same time frame, would be a disservice to the cause. We want to respect all our participants and volunteers for the “Ride for Mom” in that we know you may have high risk people in your daily life and want them to stay safe. We hope you understand, we all need to do our part to prevent the spread and are asking you to wait a year, June 5, 2021.

Eastman ATV stays committed to running safe family events, to continued trial development and our future together. We are currently working through the details to sign a new trail expansion and expect the new trail will be open this summer.

The 2019 ATV Ride for Mom Thanks You…

Hello and a big thank you to everyone who came out including rider’s, sponsors, vendors and volunteers for the 4th Annual ATV Ride for Mom. We greatly appreciate your desire to support CancerCare Manitoba while enjoying a day on the trail. In talking with riders through the day they said the parking went without a hitch, registration was a breeze and the trail was amazing. So thank you to the riders for letting us know what you liked or didn’t. We want to hear from you to make the event bigger and better next year so we need to know what you want.

It’s very clear we made a big mistake for lunch and we whole heartedly apologize for the long line and wait for the lunch. We have never had that before so we absolutely know how to fix it and we will.  Everyone was so patient and said the delay was ok. We know it’s absolutely not right and you all were too gracious to complain. Next year we will give you a great lunch with little wait to no wait the way it has been before. We will refine a plan before the next ride and we will report back to you.  We know we have to provide additional enjoyment to make it up to you.

Our ride was much bigger than last year in numbers and especially donations and money raised for CCM.

Sponsors dollars supporting  $6600
Money collected for CCM      still coming in….. $20,000
Riders attending411
Passengers attending 235
Volunteers sponsors & vendors 55
People in attendance 701

We are truly excited about the big increase in collections as that’s the point of this entire event to raise more money for CCM every year. So congratulations to all the riders collecting pledges, volunteers making this happen, and all our sponsors’ that made this event possible!

Most sincerely
Eastman ATV Association
Donald C. Eidse
President
