President’s Report July 2017

Good day everyone!

Just wanted everyone to know a few brief updates. The Quad Squad held its season opener June 8-10th with over 80 members in attendance with 62 machines. Great turn out and thanks to all the volunteers who helped make it a success, and raised about $935.00 for the club.  


Mark has set up some day rides from McGillivray staging area on Aug 12th leaving at 0900 Hrs to Crown Mountain, Deadman’s Pass. This is a beautiful ride, some tricky spots, but you have lots of help, and on Aug 13th leaving at 0900 Hrs he will be taking us on the Daisy, Racehorse, Atlas loop.  Again a nice easy beautiful ride. You are welcome to camp at the staging area if you like.


We will be having our camping windup rides in the Castle area Sept 6th to 10th, rides to be determined. More info to follow.


Of urgent note, our raffle sales have been about 1/2 of what we did last year.  Please pick up some tickets at the office and sell sell sell!


The A.O.H.V.A is representing all motorized users at the present meetings with the Provincial Government for the land use management being developed for the Porcupine/Livingstone area. Although they are doing a great job, please be prepared to lose more trails in spite of Notley’s promise to build new trails to replace the trails lost in the Castle.  We need monies to fight all of this and that is where some of the raffle money comes in handy, to build new bridges and future trail rehabilitation to show the Government we are responsible.  The board has decided to not build any bridges this year, as we do not know what trails are going to be open.


Any of our Taber or Lethbridge Members, if you wish to sell some raffle books, let me know at and I can drop them off as I usually to Taber/Lethbridge once a week.


We received this email today:

Good morning,

I am pleased to inform you that Corbin Road to Coal Leach Road has now been reopened.

On April 1, 2017 Teck carried out a seasonal private road closure on a section of Coal Leach Road at the 82.5 km marker. This is an annual seasonal closure to protect fish populations in the Michel Creek, which flows over the road at times of high water.

As water levels have now dropped and are not expected to rise again, we are opening the road to public access.

We recognize that this access road is used by a number of people and that the seasonal closure may cause inconvenience – we thank you for your patience shown during this time.

Please be aware that Teck may be forced to close this road again with little or no notice if environmental conditions deteriorate, including water flowing over the road for any reason. As always, Teck will endeavor to give advance notice of road closures wherever possible.

At all times, please be aware that this road is a private industrial road and access is at your own risk. The road is not maintained for public traffic.

Thanks for your support, ride safe, responsibly and above all, enjoy our beautiful back country.

Gary Clark,
