Jan Hamerton Memorial Ride Raise $1000 for Cancer

Jan Hamerton Memorial Ride

Jan Hamteron ride - cheque presentation

We are pleased to report that not even all of the bugs and humidity could dampen the spirits of all of the riders that showed up at our Jan Hamerton Memorial Ride on Sunday June 23, 2013. Held At the Wildman tract, Simcoe forest. Its not the quantity of people that show up, but rather the quality of the individuals that made this event fun and memorable!

This year we had many new riders join us in the day’s event and it was not without some highlights.

We all shared a moment of silence for a previous member of our club, Jan Hamerton at one of her favorite spots along the trail.  She was a very iconic member of the Central Ontario All Terrain Vehicle Club and is remembered fondly by all who knew her.   All of the admission fees collected were donated to the Canadian Cancer Society in the amount of $1000.00 (2012/2013 ride) in honor of Jan Hamerton.   Trailside lunch was supplied by Foodland Stayner.

A great time was had by all and I look forward to seeing you all again at our next ride!

Event and membership information can be found at our web site www.coatv.ca.

MEDIA RELEASE OFSC & OFATV

OFSC and OFATV Advocate No Riding on Private Land

Without Landowner Permission

(Barrie, ON April 15, 2013) – The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) and the Ontario Federation of All Terrain Vehicles (OFATV) urge all motorized riders to be responsible by respecting landowner rights. This respect starts with not entering any private land without permission.  This means staying off of trails on private land that are not available to any rider during a given season (e.g. OFSC snowmobile trails during non-winter months) or that are available only for the use of a specific rider group during a specific season (e.g. snowmobilers during the winter).

All OFSC Prescribed Snowmobile Trails on private land are shut down at the end of each winter and not available again until the next winter. This is because landowners have given permission to local snowmobile clubs to allow snowmobiles on these trails on their land, but only in the winter. This permission does not include any other riders or seasons.

Unauthorized use of OFSC trails on private land in the non-winter months can not only lead to trespass charges, but can also result in a landowner permanently closing a trail to all riders for all seasons. Before entering any trail on private property in any season, every rider must have land use permission, either directly from the landowner or through membership in a provincial or regional organization or local club. When in doubt, check with the OFSC or OFATV to confirm where trail riding is available, acceptable and authorized in each season.

Ontario snowmobilers and ATV riders have enough shared or dedicated trails to ride legally in this province without trespassing on private land. Snowmobilers and ATV riders need to earn and keep the respect of local landowners and of their home communities by riding only where authorized and by staying on the trail. The best way to enjoy riding responsibly on authorized trails is to join your local club and ride with other club members.

The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is dedicated to providing strong leadership and support to member clubs and volunteers, to establishing and maintaining quality snowmobile trails which are used in a safe and environmentally responsible manner, and to furthering the enjoyment of organized snowmobiling.

The Ontario Federation of All-Terrain Vehicle Clubs is a not-for profit, volunteer driven association that along with support staff provides resources to our member clubs so that together, we are able to strengthen the public’s perception and the position that our clubs strive to provide responsible, safe, legal, and environmentally friendly trails for riding all-terrain vehicles (ATVs & ROVs) in the province of Ontario.

The Media Release can be downloaded here.

The trails are open in Baxter.

We just had word from Baxter ATV Trail Riders that their trails are open. Get your permits today and get out on the trails.

This is great news.

We hope to open our trails soon, but they are currently still closed.
