February 2023 President’s Report – Chris D’Silva

This is a short month, so my report will be short as well.

You probably know by now that the Annual Poker Ride for 2023 is being held in Princeton BC, from June 28 to July 03.  Kudos to Dave Mackintosh and his team in pulling this together.  It sounds like it will be quite the event!!

Don’t forget that the intake for the RSTBC ORV Trail Fund grant requests is now open, and as the deadline is March 15, you may want to jump on this opportunity. As I said last month, the funding available has increased. The funds available have gone from $250,000 to $400,000. This is a great opportunity for clubs to get some funding for their favourite trails. The application for this can be obtained from the RSTBC website.

Planning for the ATVBC AGM and Jamboree is also underway.  The location and specific dates are still under discussion.

The AGM Task Force is looking at a couple of options and we should be able to let you know around the middle of March.

ATVBC has 2 openings on its Board of Directors.

If you know someone who would like to join a great team or if you would like to join, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me by email.

Well, as I said, a short month and a short President’s Report for February.  ATVBC, as I am sure many of you are, is preparing for another great riding year.

See you on the trails!

Respectfully submitted,

Chris DSilva
