DGATV’s Executive / Board of Directors

Established in 2006, a succession of keen riders have taken the helm of Dufferin Grey ATV Club Inc (DGATV) on the Board of Directors.  We thank each and every one, past and present, for their contribution to the successful operation of our club.

The Board of Directors are responsible for directing DGATV’s operations.  The Board sets the policies, priorities, strategy, and upcoming events for the season. The Board is responsible for dealing with the Ontario Federation of ATV Clubs (OFATV), all levels of government, the police, landowners, sponsors, communities and members.

DGATV’s Board of Directors meet at 7pm on the third Wednesday of every month excluding December.  The Dundalk Legion (Branch #285) is located at 109 Proton St. N. in Dundalk.  Other Volunteers, members and prospective members are welcome.

We have 9 Directors with two-year terms (4-5 split in alternate years).  If you are interested in becoming a Director you must be a member on record with DGATV for at least 3 months and stand at our annual general meeting (typically held in March).  The Directors vote for the President and Vice-President on an annual basis.

Warden Responsibilities

Do you like to ride?  Need an excuse to get out on the trails?  Becoming a Warden may fit the bill …

First, in mid-April, help us prepare DGATV’s trails for the season.  Get together with other Wardens and Trail Committee members to ride the trail and report/fix any problem areas.  Help clear brush, fix holes, post signage, create maps, ensure the safety of all riders.

Second, your duty would be to ride!  Represent DGATV and the Ontario Federation of ATV Clubs (OFATV) by being an obvious source of help, as well as a deterrent against breaking the rules.

Third, DGATV needs riders on the trail who are familiar with the area and who can be an effective agent for our club.  As a Warden you would be responsible for seeking out other riders to answer any questions, educate riders on the benefits of being a club member, carry and sell permits, report any problems with the trail, and file a report after each trip to assure our land-owners that their interests are our priority.

Fourth, we ask that you participate in our social events — mark a trail, lead a group, see to it that all riders have a safe and happy riding experience.

Finally, in November, help us close the trail in preparation for winter shutdown and the start of snowmobile season.

By becoming a Warden Volunteer you help make ATVing a viable recreational sport within Dufferin and Grey counties, and in Ontario as a whole.  We can’t do it without you!

Contact info@dgatv.ca if you are interested in the half-day training session required to become a Warden.



 

Trail Opening (2017) – Spring is in the Air!

 

While not entirely obvious, Spring 2017 is around the corner!

Wardens will start to clear DGATV’s trails in mid-April. Public riding will begin around May 1st weather-dependent.  Note that we can’t ride if the trails are really wet because damage results.

Please check www.facebook.com/DGATV and www.dgatv.ca closer to the time for confirmation of season start.

If you are interested in helping out by becoming a Warden or part of the Trail Committee, contact info@dgatv.ca for further information.
