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!
