2020 ATVANS Lottery Huge Success

The 2020 ATVANS lottery had a few last minute challenges; however, it can only be called a huge success for the winners, our clubs and partner Honda Canada. The Honda Talon was the biggest baddest grand prize ever, for our lottery.

Grand Prize winner was Scott Ogilvie of Hants County; Scott was on the trail ATVing when he got the news. Second Prize of a Honda 2200 invertor/generator goes to Melissa Cross of Lunenburg County while third prize goes to Dennis McGee of Westville Pictou County. Dennis wins a Honda multi trimmer. Congratulations to the winners.

The lottery once again provides a great source of funding for our clubs across the province for a variety of projects and initiatives. We want to thank everyone who purchased a ticket, all those who volunteers who sold tickets and displayed the Honda Talon as it toured across the province.

I want to thank Keith Ramsey from Pro Cycle (TOP ATV DEALER IN CANADA) for hosting the draw with last minute notice. The original draw location was closed after the postponement of the Atlantic Outdoor Sports and R V show following health concerns due to the COVID-19 virus. In closing I would like to recognize the hard work of Tom Arnold Vice President ATVANS who led the 2020 lottery on behalf of the board.

2019 ATVANS AGM Brings Leadership Changes

The 2019 AGM saw significant leadership changes after several long serving board members decided it was time to pass the torch. Vince Sawler, Rocky Pearce, Bob Wright and Jonathan MacKenzie all decided not to re-offer for their respective positions. This made way for significant changes, several new faces on the board and some returning members with new positions.

Your new board includes Kevin Lombard - President, Steve Foley - 1st Vice President, Tom Arnold - 2nd Vice President, Paul Smith - Treasurer, Michelle Wile - Secretary, Directors at large, Greg Grant, Trevor Hebb, Eric Rideout, Jonathan Calnen, Mike MacKinley and Daniel Wile. The Zone directors remain the same with Graham Menzies, Judy Giovannetti, Drew Fraser, Corey Osborne, Jim Crowell and Richard Dumas, who’s terms continue until 2020. The election of board members has created two vacant zone director positions and clubs in those zones will be notified on how to proceed to fill these positions.

The weekend was packed with great meetings, plenary sessions and lots of great discussion about the future of our sport and organization. I want to thank everyone who participated for your great support and commitment to ATVANS. I also want to thank our tremendous sponsors, Honda Canada (Mark Lane), Pro Cycle (Keith Ramsey) and Can Mac Watercraft and More, CF Moto dealer.

The 2019 AGM was the largest attended meeting in recent history, many old friends reacquainted and new friends were made. Together we look forward to a very bright and positive future as we work to advance the sport of ATVing and our organization. ATVANS is the largest power sport organization in Nova Scotia and the third largest ATV federation in Canada. Watch for our spring newsletter coming soon with more details from the 2019 AGM.

Thank you
