Invitation to the Last Club Ride of the 2017 Season!
*** This ride is cancelled due to the arrival of winter 🙁 ***
It is one thing for our volunteer Trail Crew to be out keeping the trail clear of fallen trees, filling ruts, and picking up rail spikes.
It is another thing to be picking up someone else’s dumped garbage.
This photos show the before and after shot of the Markdale parking lot.
Thanks to our Trail Captain who personally cleaned up the mess.
We would like to remind everyone that we are a member of the Ontario Federation of ATV Clubs. An OFATV trail permit is required to ride on all our trails.
“Buy Where You Ride” is the OFATV motto to support the clubs. Not only does the permit allow you to ride the trails, it also makes you a voting member, and a major portion of your permit funds goes to the club you selected to join.
Permit funds are used by the clubs for trail development, maintenance and repairs. Additionally, each club is responsible for getting road use and land-owner approvals in their area.
For more information see www.ofatv.org.
See you on the trails!

Saturday, October 21st was a fabulous day for the 2nd annual LadyBalls ride to support Ovarian Cancer Canada.
45 people and 39 ATVs including 4 side-by-sides came out to raise $2,000 for the cause and to enjoy the autumn colours.
For the first time, the ride started at the Meaford pavilion down by the waterfront and traveled the new Meaford trails.
Terrific job by our Coordinators Jamie, Vera, Dan, and Tim. Kudos for such a successful event!
DGATV’s Events Committee is finalized the details of this autumn ride, and it sure sounds like fun!
The ride will be staging from the park pavilion at 3 St Vincent St, Meaford, ON N4L 1B8 down by the waterfront at 10am.
We’ll be riding the Meaford trails for the first time!
There will be a winery tour, BBQ, and door prizes.
Funds will be raised through the sale of 50/50 tickets, the registration fee and rider pledge sheets.
Registration for OFATV Members is $30 or $100 in pledges per rider. An additional $20 day pass is required for non-members.
Side-by-sides are welcome.
Passengers are asked to make a donation to the charity organization.
This is the second year that DGATV will be supporting Ovarian Cancer Canada.
Grey County has closed Harkaway Forest to ATVs effective October 15, 2017.
Riders, please respect our landowner agreement and keep your ATV out of the forest.
Your participation is crucial in keeping this tract available to us.
