Eastman ATV May Update
Take a look at the attached statistics for ATV and motorcycle sales growth last year versus this year. It starts out with motorcycle sales, eventually it gets to ATV sales if you are interested it shows a striking change.
On the ground it means more of us out on trails, and if we use the momentum to organize we can expand our safe and responsible riding areas. We understand it’s going to take sustainable tenacity to see our way through an expansion of our current trail. The fact is the trail we call the expansion is a trail that is there already, that we would like to maintain to make it safer and in compliance with the Provincial ORV Trail Manual. We will continue to work with the local RMs and our partners to plan for the future. We look forward to working with the Province again in a productive manner as we once did. All very very nice people in government, but we have had zero progress for any trail expansions large or small. We are all volunteers, we greatly appreciate your continued support. Having more people talking with their provincial representative is what I encourage you to do. We are good stewards of Crown land, this shines through with our excellent track record in managing the trail.
For 2021 we have 127 membership purchases as of April 30th, that is the same as all of 2020. Please support your riding area. Please spend the same as 1/2 tank of gas for yearly support of your trails. Join the many people that see the $45 online, for membership at https://eastmanatv.com/product/membership-2021 as your choice to improve your trails. All members receive a “Membership / Voluntary Trail Pass” decal, 2021 Eastman ATV Membership card, and an official Eastman ATV Trail map.
I finally have caught up on the 2021 membership listing and email group. If you are a 2021 member you should have received one email with the attached Ride Schedule. You will continue to receive ride update information throughout the season.
Eastman ATV Group Scheduled RSVP Rides
Currently 10 person maximum outdoor restriction.
We are hopeful that we may be able to ride in groups of 10, when 10 people arrive, the group leaves. We have a couple of large parking lots to accommodate vehicles and a good& number of radios. I will send an update a week or so before the next scheduled ride and we will have a more accurate description for members. Please remember to RSVP Group Ride, that will be a normal requirement as headcount is critical for the season I expect.
ATV Ride for Mom
Experienced letter writers: we need your help, to lobby the provincial government, in order to get a safer route for our growing event. We can raise serious money for CancerCare Manitoba if we provide the proper venue. The Manitoba ORV Community, fueling this fundraising event, has raised $100,000 so far. It is growing into an iconic Manitoba ATV Event. Help take the ATV Ride for Mom into the future.
We look forward to Saturday, June 4th, 2022 let’s make it BIG!
I can’t help saying thank you to all the people I have had the pleasure of talking to over the last months. You feel like a very big family to me, Thank you.
