There will be a meeting in Kelowna to look for interest in starting a new a new club again.
The Comox Valley ATV Club teamed up with the Campbell River ATV Club and hosted the All-Island ATV Fall Camp-out and GPS scavenger hunt ride October 3rd to 5th, 2014.
All five ATV clubs on the island, including the Cowichan Valley ATV Club, the Mid-Island ATV Club, the Pt. Alberni Hill Climbers ATV Club, the Comox Valley ATV Club and the Campbell River ATV Club attended the event. We also had one member from Powell River ATV Club in attendance. The camping is free, the event is free and we gave away close to $5,000 in prizes thanks to our very generous sponsors.
The camp-out was held at the BC Hydro camp-site at Strathcona Dam. The footprint of the GPS ride took in the area between highway 28 on the South and highway 19 on the West and North. None of the markers were placed North of Sayward. The distance between the two markers placed furthest apart was about 40 Km, as the crow flies.
The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources, Recreation Sites and Trails Branch would like to remind all Off Road Vehicle users of the Summer Motorized Closure on Yanks Peak (Snowshoe Plateau). This closure has been in effect since 2005 and was put in place to protect sensitive sub alpine environments.
Recent inspections have shown that there has been an increase in motorized activity within the closure areas and Ministry staff would like to remind users of several key points;
· The Yanks Peak Snowmobile Cabin is NOT accessible by motorized vehicles in the snow free months
· Roundtop Mountain is NOT accessible in summer due to vehicles leaving the hard packed road into sensitive areas
