Jam 2004 a roaring success!
Parry Sound ATV District Club (PSATV) and TRAX Georgian Bay just pulled
off their third Jam and true to tradition pulled in ATVers from across
Ontario once again. Fall Jam 2004 was held exclusively in the
township of Seguin and the warm welcome was noticed by everyone.
Friday evening Terry Boyle, of Haunted Ontario fame, regaled the Jammers
with tales of local history and ghosts complete with what to look for on
the Saturday ride on the old Nipissing Stage Coach trail. A
roaring campfire added to the atmosphere and the marshmallows and
hotdogs secured the evening. Our partners, the Park-to-Park Trail
Association and the West Parry Sound District Museum kicked in old
photos and plenty of folklore to hand out to the participants so they
could appreciate the heritage of the tour.
Saturday morning everyone enjoyed a great breakfast put on by the Foley
Agricultural Society. In fact these folks bent over backwards to
make our time at the fairgrounds extremely comfortable. Councillor
Doug Graham of Seguin Township expressed the great pleasure of the
township in choosing Seguin as the home of Fall Jam. He welcomed
the Jammers on behalf of the township and hoped this would be the start
of an on going relationship with ATVers. The township passed a
special by-law to allow ATVs access to municipal roads and consequently
to many Seguin accommodators and services.
Stage Coach tour was blessed from above! Septemberís dry weather
gave way to rain showers that eradicated the dust just in time for the
ride. With just over 100 kms, the tour was a perfect highlight to
the jamboree. The quality time didnít stop with the tour.
A scrumptious roast beef dinner was served up by our Foley hosts and to
round out the evening we heard from Mike Granka and a ton of rowdy rock
and roll. One-upmanship ruled the night with stories of 3-wheeled
4 wheelers, and legends concocted from the dayís experiences.
TRAX Challenge tested the bragging rights of our Jammers. A mud
bog, tug of war, obstacle course, cheers, jeers and tears completed the
Fall Jam 2004 weekend. Judging by the pictures, a lot of fine
Foley dirt was transported back home in the duffle bags of our
contestants. All left with a vow to return for Spring Jam 2005 and
yet another exploration of our remarkable outdoors.
