To say John has done it all is an understatement. Whenever the call came to help the club move forward John was there to help in any way possible.

As members of COATV club and any other club in Ontario, we all should stop to give John Broderick a tremendous thank you for all his contributions over the past 25 years.

Even though John has stepped down as Director he remains an active member of the club. You will still see him on the trails as a Club Warden. Thank you, John, for all you have done and continue to do for COATV and the sport of All-Terrain Vehicles in Ontario.
