2018 Christmas Party

The Greedy Santa Gift Exchange at the 2017 Christmas Party

Party starts at 6:00pm Saturday November 17

It’s time to register for this year’s club Christmas Party. This is a family friendly event with fun and games for kids, adults and those who can’t decide which they are.

We’re going potluck again for supper so bring your secret family recipe to the party. The club will be providing the staples (turkey, potatoes, etc.) so members will be asked to bring salads, casseroles and such. If we have too many of one thing we may ask if you can bring another dish, but we’ll be in touch either way.

Each year we ask members to bring cash or non-perishable food items for the Food Bank. We challenge everyone bring a minimum of $5 per person for the food bank, the more the better!

Bring a re-gift, new or gently used, wrapped for the Greedy Santa gift exchange game! The gift exchange goes for a couple of hours, the basic premise is an item can be stolen a maximum of three times and when you have an item stolen, you decide if you want to unwrap a new gift from under the tree or steal an open gift from the crowd. We suggest gifts under $20 value, novelty gifts or even re-gift that darn present you got last year you don’t want… it’s all in fun!

For children too young to enjoy having their gifts stolen, the club provides presents. We’ll be in touch to see what your little one would like to receive.

Club members and invited guests must RSVP by 5:00pm November 10 using the form below.

  • Name (and age of young children) of those attending with you
  • What food dish you would like to bring to the party. If we have too many of one type we may need to ask for another type of dish.
  • We will do our best to accommodate special dietary needs where possible.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

2018 Christmas Tree Ride

Ride Photos

A fun ride at Noble Canyon to find a tree for the clubhouse and we actually found a tree, thanks to Paul for pointing out a gem right on the roadside!

Start Time: 10:30am Saturday, November 10
Location: Noble Canyon Road, Lavington

Each year we head out looking for the perfect (or imperfect) Christmas tree for the clubhouse which usually means we go on an epic ride and either forget to get a tree or find one on the last few kms of the ride.

The ride will pull out from the cattle guard at the bottom of Noble Canyon Road at 10:30am.

Come prepared for a fun days worth of riding, a tiny bit of hunting for a Christmas tree. Then at 5:00pm we head to the clubhouse at 940 Pottery Road, Vernon to decorate the tree and a hot bowl of chili.

Phone or text 250-550-5290 or email [email protected] if you want to come for food after the ride, registration deadline is noon Friday, November 9.

The Vernon ATV Club rides are open to everyone, attend a couple of rides to meet riders, find new trails and see what the club is all about. We’ll sure you’ll like it so much you join the club!

The Vernon ATV Club promotes responsible all terrain vehicle use. Riders must must carry proof of $200,000 liability insurance for riding on forest service roads, driver’s license and quad riders must wear a helmet (side x side riders aren’t required by law to wear helmets but we recommend they do).

SEMA Show Gallery

SEMA bombards the senses, starting with the wall to wall crowds when the show opens Tuesday morning, carbon fiber and custom everything everywhere you turn, the smell of burning rubber from the ride alongs and celebrity burnouts and more exhibitors than you could take in over the four days of the show.

Here’s a tiny fraction of what was at the show, if you ever get the chance you should go!
