January 2023 Eastman ATV Update
Happy New Year to you and your families. I hope you were able to spend time together and see friends and loved ones. My family brings to mind my ATV family, and the many friends we all have with each other. Eat well, enjoy those around you, and we can all look forward to seeing each other in the 2023 riding season.
Eastman ATV welcomes the new year with interest and excitement.
The BIG NEWS
It’s looking like ATVMB will get provincial funding based on a proposal ATVMB put forward a number of years ago. The proposal was inclusive with the snowmobile federation. The bill that has passed 1st reading will help both federations. It is still a year or 2 before we see an impact, if the bill passes. So great news but nothing is final yet.
Why join an ATV club?
In Eastman ATVs Constitution and Bylaws we have;
Article 2. Purpose To promote and practice safe and environmentally responsible ATV riding, to protect ATV access to public land, (in summary). The Number of members in organized ORV clubs is becoming more important now than ever before,especially as we move forward with the ATVMB.
2023 Eastman ATV membershipswill soon be available online and will have an attached survey. We appreciate your help in building a club identity. Once you are a member,you will get both the Eastman ATV Monthly Update ( this email ), and the Eastman ATV Ride Update, sent out 7 to 3 days before our rides, pending storms. Give a friend or relative the gift of membership.
We will again provide the Ride Schedule once we have membership open. It will give the scheduled locations with dates for the ATV rides for the year. We know we have a large number of members that attend few, if any rides, and may not be involved at all in the club. Thank you for joining or re-joining; your membership support is greatly appreciated. For those of you joining us for the rides, Let the good times Roll, it’s going to be a fun year!
See our store for hats, T-shirts, jackets and our 2023 Calendar, I love it. Give a friend or relative the gift of membership. We have exciting announcements on offering additional ride styles, stay tuned.
Its is going to be a fantastic year
