Members -

Just a message to let you know the Oswego Valley ATV Club will not be participating in the Hannibal Parade this year. Please all come out and enjoy the parade and the field days, it is a lot of fun. Hopefully next year we will be able to participate. Thanks to all who have helped in the past years.

Please remember the ATV raffle will be done at our ride on 9/20. Tickets are still available if anyone would like any. Please contact me if you do.

The McHenry Trail is reopened.  However,  the trail is still in process of drying and wet in areas, so please take it easy going through as to not damage the work that Ken Malone has provided for us. 

Also: Sterling highway department is working on the trail crossings on Cosgrove Road in Fair Haven on the Hojack trail.  They cold patched and regraded them yesterday and will be oil and stoning them today, and placing barricades to keep traffic off then until they cure fully. Please make sure you go around the barricades until they are removed, not to disturb the work the Town has done.

With many thanks to Joe Bush, Harold Phillips, Dick Blais and Pete Lunkenheimer and anyone else I have failed to mention, the trails have been largely cleared and are now reopened.

Be careful when riding, as there may still be limbs or hangers on the network.  If you are able to toss aside safely, please do so, and keep us posted if any blockages are encountered.

As I've said many times before, the members make this club and the folks above deserve much appreciation for their selfless efforts. If you see them, please thank them for helping us continue being a great club!

First, I wish everyone a fantastic 4th of July weekend and safe summer season - hard to believe we're in July already! Hope everyone has been out and enjoying the trails, seems like just yesterday when it was snowing like mad and we all wondered when riding season would be here...

If you couldn't make tonight's meeting, here are a few updates:

Jermey brought the new trail waypoint signs, along with the Club memorial sign for folks to look at. All look excellent and in the case of waypoint signs, colored markers to each major destination will make the trails much easier to navigate for those not completely familiar with the network as a whole...

The Club is looking at options to enhance its mowing equipment, specifically a side-shift mower which allows users to offset the deck, helping to make trail mowing (especially the county trails) more efficient and safer. Although we're not sure whether the used mower found this week will work with our tractor, the plan is to find out, as the price is advantageous....

The Club will be sending raffle tickets to members with a return date of August 15th; let's sell or buy, returning the stubs and a check by due date. Getting these sold will make the raffle a success, helping us with needed equipment and trail improvements...

Finally, we need candidates for Officer/Board positions. Nominations are to be made at the September meeting and I have not heard from anyone interested in becoming an Officer or Director. The Club needs your support, new ideas and leadership. We only want to 'borrow' your talents for a couple years (not a lifelong committment) to help continue growing and grooming the organization. Without someone stepping forward, your club, trail network and riding opportunities are at risk of going away. Now is the time, so please think of giving your club a hand like others have done, helping us continue being a great organization....we need direct involvement and open minds - I know the right folks are out there, so please raise a hand!

As always, feel free to call with any questions and thanks for helping make this Club one of the best around.

Thanx - Phil McCann - President - Oswego Valley ATV Club

Please remember to display your parking pass when leaving vehicles at club parking sites (Dad's Diner, Fair Haven Municipal, Cato/TC's). Also, when parking at Dad's, make sure you are parking on the gravel
section, not the asphalt, as the Club's arrangement is at risk if we don't follow the rules. 

Coming attractions in the next few weeks include new waypoint signage & markers to make navigating the trail network easier, along with repairs to the Fair Haven trail to help eliminate ruts. Have an enjoyable 4th of July and hope to see you on the trails!

Thanx - Phil McCann, President

If you observe unsafe conditions while riding, please contact Rick or any Officer / Director to report.  Remember, be safe, have fun and tread lightly!

• ATV RAFFLE UPDATE (June 2014)  

Our ATV raffle continues and we have a lot of tickets to sell!!

We Still Need Your Help!!!! The ATV raffle is still going on and we have a ways to go. The Club will draw winners (at the latest) during September's Best Hand Ride, but we need to sell 700 more tickets to make the raffle successful for the club.  As it stands today, the fundraiser is a loser unless we get the tickets sold.  If each member were to buy or sell at least 4 more tickets themselves, we can accomplish this quickly, with a built-in assumption some of the over 400 members will still choose to do nothing. We (Officers & Board) know we're always asking the same folks for help, but let's make this event a success and make two lucky winners happy sooner than later.  If we get the tickets sold before the ride, the winners will be drawn at the next monthly meeting!  If everyone stepped up and bought or sold only two more, we'd be done in a matter of days and draw in July.  Think about it. We need your support please!!! So please, take a minute to order your tickets or tickets to sell by contacting Pat at 315-564-6619 or drop us an email at  prlunk@citlink.net. Tickets are $15.00 each and your can win a new ATV valued at $9,000 or $7,500 in cash, with a consolation prize of $1,000!!!. A big thank you to those who have already participated by purchasing or selling tickets!!!
