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!

The Ban is Lifted!

As of noon on September 20, 2017 the off-road prohibition is lifted across the province except for specific areas around active wildfires. To see a list of area closures visit the BC Wildfire website.

There will be rides this weekend, likely a few rides for you to choose from as everyone wants to get out again. Watch for ride announcements in the next couple of days and let us know where you’re riding or would like to ride this weekend.

Voluntary backcountry closure

During this period of heightened wildfire risk, the British Columbia government is strongly recommending that people stay completely out of the backcountry within the Cariboo Fire Centre, Kamloops Fire Centre and Southeast Fire Centre.

The public is advised to not visit recreation sites in the Cariboo, Kamloops or Southeast fire centres over the Labour Day long weekend. Visitors currently camping and using recreation sites in the Cariboo, Kamloops and Southeast fire centres are encouraged to leave.

Recreation Sites and Trails BC
Closures of numerous recreation site and trails are in effect in the Cariboo, Southeast and Kamloops fire centres. For a complete list of current closures, please visit:

www.sitesandtrailsbc.ca/closures.aspx

Recreationalists are encouraged to avoid travelling in the backcountry in areas where wildfires are active or where the fire danger rating is high to extreme. Given the current fire danger ratings and number of active wildfires, further restrictions may be considered if people do not stay out of the backcountry.

The Best of 2016

2016 was a great year for the Vernon ATV Club. There were a large number of rides through all seasons and we saw a number of new riders, young families and many of the old regulars.

In the community the club held it’s third cleanup on King Eddy Road, removing 5 truckloads of garbage totalling 2,900lbs. We continued our annual donations to local charities with $750 cash donated to three local charities plus another $400 and 105lbs food bank donation by those attending the club Christmas party. We attended the Canada Day celebrations in Polson Park with machines and information for all the families in attendance. Club volunteers gave over 1,000 hours of their time to club functions in 2016.

We held rides with the Kelowna ATV Club and the Salmon Arm Natures Nomads ATV Club and explored many areas outside our regular stomping grounds of Noble Canyon and King Eddy Road. We had riders join us from as far away as Prince George and New Brunswick.

There’s much more to come in 2017, the club directors are busy working behind the scenes to make the new year bigger and better.

It’s a real pleasure to be part of a group of people who enjoy responsibly using the great resource that this province provides us and who contribute so much to each other and the community!
