With 2012 now history and the New Year starting I would like to mention some of the projects we are involved with.
The AGM saw some new directors get elected and with that new ideas and thought on how to make the organization better and with that I would like close out 2012 and focus this article on what we are working on or going to work on to compliment what has been done.
Three of the many projects worked on in 2012
Terry Wardrop, Peter Sprague (Executive Director for BCORMA) and I met with Minister Bill Bennett and Minister Steve Thompson as well as several other meetings with Senior Bureaucrats to discuss a Provincial Trails strategy we would like to start as well as the role of Motorized Recreation in BC and ways to work together to ensure riding areas are kept open and available to all.
The Tunkwa Lake project has involved local residents as well as weekend recreationalists from outside the area and the area plan is well on its way.
Riding over Obstacles
Obstacles should be avoided when possible. Even though they are natural in the backcountry, there are some better habits that can be developed. Small objects may be crossed easy, while larger objects can cause sensitive moments. If it is easier to turn back do so. Large obstacles can get you out of control and the possibility of overturning could be a result. Single track is different than bothtracks.
