ATV club hosting fun day at motocross

The Grands Forks ATV Club and partnering organizations invite all residents to a family fun day on Saturday, May 10.

It will truly be a family fun day at the motocross on Morrissey Creek Road on Saturday, May 10.

The Grand Forks ATV Club, along with the 17 partners of the Boundary Country Trails Agreement and other supporting partners of the Grand Forks/Christina Lake Multi-Use Recreational Trails Plan, invite all residents to this special event.

It will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; watch for the signs just east of town.

Events during the day include organized mountain bike rides led by Grand Forks mountain bikers, a hike around the area led by the North Fork trail maintenance group, horse rides with folks with horses and the Boundary Horse Association, and opportunities for people to ride an ATV.

There will also be a modified ATV safety course conducted by an ATV B.C. certified instructor and a mountain bike workshop.

In addition there will be many guest speakers centered around the theme of riding an ATV properly and safely. There will be a barbecue featuring burgers and buns supplied by Overwaitea Foods and Buy-Low Foods. All proceed will go towards the multi-use trail project, with an estimated budget of $50,000. There will be a full safety course available on May 11. Contact Doug Zorn at info@gfatv.ca.

Once completing the course the participant receives a certificate which allows an insurance discount.

Come out and join in the fun, bring your ride or a chair—watch for maps in local public areas.
