Spring Run & BBQ – a huge success!

  Last Saturday saw over 100 ATV enthusiasts from age 2 – 80 gather in Parry Sound to celebrate the rites of spring.  Some ATVers travelled from as far a field as Windsor just to enjoy the trails, sunshine and fellowship.  Following a very satisfying 4 hour tour the group returned en masse to a Barbeque and many tales of adventure.  Thanks to all the club volunteers that corralled traffic, lead the tours, registered the guests made sure all was clean afterwards.  Special thanks go to Delta Rocky Crest for donating the burgers.

  The response to our first event of the season was very encouraging.  The club anticipates growing numbers of ATVers will hear how Parry Sound can really put on events that advance our brand of safe and responsible riding.

 Here are just a few of our plans:

 Dice Run – Sat. May 11th, 2002

  This ever-popular event will start at the Seguin Trail Head (Information Centre) with registration at 10 am.  Many prizes are up for grabs and all will be dished out at the Oastler Park-Side Motel & Restaurant at 6:00 pm.   The entry fee is $15 for OFATV members and $20 for non-members.

 Four Wheelin’ Women Ride for Breast Cancer Awareness – Sat. June 8th, 2002

  The ride will take place at the Ontario Camp of the Deaf, located 10 minutes south of Parry Sound.  New or experienced riders welcome as the ride is intended to introduce women of all ATV riding levels to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Muskoka's.  The ride will be about 4 hours in length with lots of stops along the way.  We will have activities planned for the men while we ride if they would like to come along for the day.  A BBQ will follow the ride with giveaways and raffles.

 We’d love to have your company.
