Grey Highland’s Fire Fighters’ and Dufferin Grey ATV Club are teaming up to raise funds to purchase a new emergency utility vehicle for the fire fighters.
Start the day with a Community Pancake Breakfast at the Markdale Fire Hall (8am to 10:30am) and then head over to the Markdale parking lot (205 Main St. West aka County Road 12 west) for a trail ride with your ATV or side-by-side.
Be sure to buy your $5 lottery ticket for your chance to win the funds for a new set of ATV/UTV tires! All proceeds to the fire fighters.
See the attached poster for more information or contact our Event Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519.266.3559.
Dufferin Grey ATV Club Directors Jamie Thurman and Pete LeMaitre presented cheques to Highpoint Community School and Dundalk & Proton Community School for use by their respective breakfast clubs.
Money raised at our first ride of the season on Saturday, May 26, 2018 ride was matched by DGATV so that each school could receive $330.
Jamie speaks for the Executive when she says “Our Riders have big hearts” and to all who donated, as well as our Members, Land Owners, Sponsors and Volunteers we say “Thank you”.
Introducing DGATV’s Side-By-Side Bypass Trail
Dufferin Grey ATV Club (DGATV) welcomes side-by-sides riders as members and on the trail.
To-date, our local counties have not authorized side-by-sides on county properties. Grey County is undertaking a Recreational Trails Master Plan to help manage the trails and plan for the future — the report is due any day now. The rail trail and county forests will be addressed in that plan.
Whether or not Grey County allows side-by-sides on the trail (or ATVs for that matter), it is expected that Dufferin County will follow suit.
In the meantime, DGATV’s volunteers have marked a by-pass trail so that side-by-sides can travel without going on the rail trail. The by-pass signs have a blue streak across either the top or bottom as shown:
Parking is available in Dundalk and Markdale.
So now it’s official — Side-by-side Riders, Come Ride With Us!
