RIDE THE TRAIL TODAY AND EXPERIENCE EASTMAN, YOUR ADVENTURE BEGINS HERE.
GRAND OPENING OF THE EASTMAN ATV TRAIL
Our trail is located in the heart of the heart of the Sandilands Provincial Forest.
The Eastman Trail, built and maintained by the Eastman ATV Association Inc., on Friday, June 3, 2016. In attendance for our celebration were:
Ted Falk, MP Provencher, who provided congratulations to ATVMB, affiliated clubs and the many volunteers who gave countless hours of their time to complete these trail projects.
“In 2014 our Conservative Government provided $10 million toward expanding and improving multi-purpose trails for walking, running, crosscountry skiing, biking, and for ATV and snowmobile use. I was pleased to join with representatives from the All Terrain Vehicle Association of Manitoba and other organizations for the grand opening of the Eastman. They, along with all the clubs and volunteers across the province, can be proud of the excellent work they’ve accomplished keeping trails groomed and meeting the constant demand for more trails.” – MP Ted Falk
Jill Ruth, President, Mid-Canada Marine and Powersports Dealers Association (MMPDA), brought greetings, on behalf of the Association. Jill noted that designated trails are much needed and an essential part of bringing safety to the off road vehicle rider and important to the preservation of the environment that is an integral part of the off road vehicle experience.
“I bring congratulations and thanks from all of the dealers in our organization. We want you to know that we appreciate the hard work of ATVMB and the volunteers who have made this trail possible. We are proud to have been able to work with ATVMB by providing a $25,000 grant towards the development and improvement of ATV trails in Manitoba.
Today is a testament to what can be done with the cooperation of consumers, industry and government.”
Oksana Buhel, of the Canadian Off Highway Vehicle Distributors Council, the organization that provides the sustainable funding that enables ATVMB to be able to advocate on behalf of the recreational ATV/UTV rider in Manitoba. Without the annual funding received, ATVMB would not exist. Ms. Buhel cited the dedication of the many volunteers who make up ATVMB and member clubs, without whom none of this would be possible.
“COHV has been working with ATVMB since its inception in 2009 to support trail development on public land. Through hard work, persistence and a strong focus on building partnerships, ATVMB has been able to achieve this goal. COHV is pleased to continue supporting the federation’s work and extends congratulations on this noteworthy accomplishment.”
