It’s finally here, next Monday evening is our Annual General Meeting. Come by “the clubhouse” at 940 Pottery Road, Vernon to help steer the club ahead into 2019. There are three positions up for election so come put your name in or just share your opinion on what the club should be doing in the year ahead.
In addition to election of directors we set our dates for 2019 rides and events and engage everyone in attendance for their take on how 2018 went and what to do in 2019.
Monday October 23 come out and have your say on the future direction of the club. Food is provided, we’ll have pizza, chips, veggies and drinks. Members, guests and anyone interested in off-road recreation is welcome.
We’ve had a great year considering spring almost got washed away, summer got smoked and snow is already on higher elevation trails. Club members put in a ton of work on these events (and more):
Vernon Winter Carnival Parade
Annual King Eddy Cleanup
Lumby Days Parade
Canada Day Display and Kiddie Cart Rides
Ladies Day Ride
Rides with neighbouring clubs
Lots of club rides
All these events take work but they are equally rewarding. We appreciate the hard work of members and ask you come out to share your ideas and any time you can give to continue spreading the club message of family fun through responsible off-road vehicle usage.
If you haven’t been out to the winter and early spring rides this is your first chance to meet other members in 2017. If you have been out on rides, well Hi, good to see you again!
The purpose of the meeting is to update members on developments over the winter, plans for the year ahead and to get your feedback and ideas for rides, events and social functions.
Everyone is invited, you don’t need to be a member to attend and please feel free to come check the club out.
If you’re interested in joining the club memberships will be for sale. We’ll be selling 2017 ATV/BC Raffle tickets too.
Oregon Dunes 2018 Planning – After the meeting there will be photos and videos from previous dune trips and cost information provided for those interested in going in 2018. We’ll see who is interested in going and set a date so we can book accommodation.
6:30pm Monday October 24 – The Annual General Meeting gets started at 6:30pm at 940 Pottery Road, Vernon. There are 4 director positions up for election this year.
There are a number of roles you can fill or ways you can help the club that range from a few minutes here and there to regular weekly duties, all depending on your schedule and ability to help. We appreciate the fresh outlook and energy that new members bring to the club and board so come out and have a say with your vote and possibly as a member of the board.
Coffee, water and donuts will be provided at the meeting. We will also be planning upcoming events like the Christmas tree hunt and party.
Details are finally firmed up for the Monday, September 26 meeting. We’re meeting at the ATV clubhouse at 940 Pottery Road, Vernon. Doors will open at 6 with the club meeting portion of the night getting started at 6:30pm.
The meeting should be wrapped up by 7:30, everyone is encouraged to stay around and visit as long as they’d like. Remember to invite your friends and anyone you know who has been involved with the club over the years, we’d love to see them again! Snacks and beverages will be provided.
Join us at the sort yard on King Eddy Road for the May long weekend. Everyone is welcome, members and non-members – so if you enjoy ATV, UTVing come out to meet some like-minded folks and have fun.
The sort yard is the gate to the left of the cattleguard, watch for the yellow ATV sign pointing the way. The gate opens at 3:00pm on Friday afternoon for campers to arrive and start setting up then hang out around the campfire in the evening.
Saturday morning is when the fun starts with a cleanup along King Eddy Road. Bring your ATV, UTV or truck as we head up the road gathering all the stuff people have discarded. We’ll need a couple of trucks for transporting the garbage to the landfill. If we get done before evening we may squeak a ride in.
Saturday afternoon there is a BBQ, it’s free for cleanup volunteers and $5 per person for everyone else. You’ll find burgers, chips & dip, salad, veggies and drinks. The BBQ will be followed by a meeting to catch everyone up on club activities.
Sunday morning is ride time, join us as we head up onto the Aberdeen plateau for some riding.
