Halloween Dress Up Ride

10:00am Sunday October 27

Thanks to all who voted, it was a close contest but Sunday October 27 won the day. We’ve chosen Mt Ida because it has a staging area with ample parking, easy access to trails and we can have a campfire.

It takes roughly 40 minutes from the north end of Vernon to Mt Ida staging. If you’d like to join the convoy we’re leaving Tim Horton’s on 58th Avenue (across from WalMart) at 9:00am.

Now it’s time to get your outfit ready for the ride. Prizes for best costume, costume that survives the ride and more.

We’ll have a campfire at a central staging area for those more interested in hanging out and telling stories and rides for those who want to be out there.

Rides and events are open to everyone, we encourage new riders to come out for a couple of rides to meet club members, find new trails and get a sense of the club before joining.

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

Where the Dirt Meets the Snow Ride

7:30am Saturday October 19

The Vernon Snowmobile Club has invited us to try some new trails in exchange for a little elbow grease working on trails and/or some facilities.

This is your chance to ride the Sovereign Lake/Silver Star snowmobile trails and help the Vernon Snowmobile Club as they get ready for the upcoming winter season.

It’s an early meetup at the A&W in Armstrong, from there we’ll head to the private staging area on Back Enderby Road then up to the snowmobile trails.

Ride Recap

An early start for a long day on the Vernon Snowmobile Club trails.

Bob, Colin and Kevin were installing the new outhouse building so we hung around and helped where possible until around lunch time when the smokies were thrown on the stove in the chalet.

We headed out to check that the trails were clear of downed trees in the afternoon, cleared some trees, rode some fun trail and saw some amazing views.

Come prepared for winter conditions, most of the snowmobile trails are at or above the snow line at this time of the year. Bring your hand saw, chainsaw or other trail clearing tool. You’ll also need your regular stuff consisting of extra clothes, camera, GPS, lunch and standard ATV safety gear.
