Eastman ATV September Update
It’s been a wacky year for many of us, let’s go riding!
The backwoods travel ban was lifted Friday Aug 21st, too late for our scheduled ride the following day. Many still made it out to ride and enjoyed a few rides since. Im really looking forward to our scheduled Sept. 18 ride, we will be sending a ride update in the next week to club members for ride details. We are going to try to make up at least some of the rides missed due to the fire travel ban. If you want to help Eastman ATV with rides let us know.
I expect we will combine the AGM with a ride again. Our AGM is for you to ask questions, voice concerns and provide your board with guidance as to what you want for your club. Club membership allows you to have a voice with both the government and the organized ORV community. I will provide more information in the next 2 weeks on this event.
Trail maintenance is ongoing, big projects underway demanding time and money from our volunteer Trail crew. A big thanks to them for their hard work. Fortunately our club is in a reasonable position to buy the needed materials and equipment rentals with one of the 2 grants we worked hard to aquire.
For 2021 we have 144 membership purchases as of Sept 1st, that beats all of 2020. Please support your riding area. 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.
Trail Clean Up, come out and enjoy our trail clean up. We are going to make a day of it, give groups an area to clean and see what we can do. Good day to meet members, and again, more information to follow.
We are considering additional rides or combo events to get more rides this year, I will be sending an Eastman ATV Ride update to members within the next 2 weeks
