POSITION OPEN with ATV Maine
UPDATE AUGUST 22, 2017
The season keeps rolling along. Trails have been very busy,
sometimes pretty dusty too!
Our annual benefit ride went well again this year with even
more riders than last time. The menu was similar, and every
drop of the pulled pork disappeared, you would have thought
someone went through and scraped the bottom of the pot with
a big spoon. The Airline ATV Riders and the Swamp Donkeys
raised $2,700.00, an astounding amount for our little one
day event. We need to acknowledge and thank Rose and Robert
Prior, who once again donated very generously to the effort.
It was great to see Keely and Aaron again, and we were
pleased to be able to aid in their tuition efforts.
The co-op of Cindy Weymouth and I from the clubs are also
holding an extended raffle that will benefit next yearís
camperships. The raffle is for a $400.00 Visa gift card.
Tickets are $1.00 each, the effort will end October 12,
2017. Tickets are available from Cindy Weymouth of Airline
or Sharon Poors of Swamp Donkeys. My number is 667-2052 (I
can send them to you) address is 23 Poors Way, Ellsworth,
Me. 04605. Please note---these tickets will NOT be available
at the Airline Diner, these are through the club only. The
diner has been overwhelmingly helpful, but they are just so
busy right now that we donít want to add to their work(they
also have one of their own going).
Trails still need brushing out in places, so remember to
bring tools the next time you ride and give those old shrubs
a good whack.
The Snackbar is holding a raffle at the diner to benefit
trailwork for both their snowmobile and atv clubs with trail
maintaining. They have a Windham AR 15 Rifle, 5.56/.223cal.,
approx. value $1,000.00 (inc. tax). Tickets are $10. Each,
only 300 will be sold.
Memberships are up to 91 primary households with 12
associate members. Welcome to all new members and renewals !
Please ride safely, and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, stay on
marked trails and out of the waterways and blueberry fields.
On our benefit ride, we had a former area rep. of ATV Maine
ride off on the blueberry fields on the ride, shame on you,
you know better and need to set a better example. NO ONE is
exempt from the trail restrictions in place. If they are not
followed, we WILL lose trails, thatís not a maybe, itís
already been done in places and can and will continu. Itís
up to you !!
The club has new t-shirts
and hoodies for sale, available for club members at the
meeting or at the diner, see Maryann.
