    Dear Members,

    As many of you have already heard, QuadNB has announced that the reciprocal agreements with Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Ontario have ended.

    The agreement that was in place allowed ATV riders from these three provinces to ride on managed QuadNB ATV trails without having to purchase a QuadNB trail permit, on the condition that they had a permit from their own provincial ATV Federation.

    The termination of this agreement is unfortunate and ATVANS was not consulted prior to the decision being made. 

    Effective immediately, ATVANS members who wish to ride on QuadNB’s managed trails will have to buy a New Brunswick trail permit, just like any other provincial resident. Daily and weekly trail permits are also available. For more information on purchasing these permits, go to www.quadnb.ca

    Two new clubs joining the ATVANS family in April are working overtime to build their membership numbers and get their trails ready for a busy riding season.


    One of the newest additions to the ATVANS roster of ATV clubs is the "BCALM Freewheelers Trail Society." The name of the group is derived from the names of the communities in their area of Cape Breton Island (B - Bateston, C - Catalone, A - Albert Bridge, L - Louisbourg, Lorraine, M - Marion Bridge, Main-a-dieu).



    Say hello to the Musquodoboit Harbour Trail Runners Association! MHTRA is the most recent addition to the list - our 44th club. The newly formed club held its first meeting  on April 23.  Congratulations, and good luck!

    **TRAIL CLOSURE**

    The Sunrise Trails ATV Club has received confirmation that their Funding Application for the overhaul of Trail 266 (Wentworth Connector) has been APPROVED!

    The conditions and weather forecast is favorable, and therefore our contractor will be beginning work Tuesday, April 23rd.

    Please be aware that the trail will be temporarily closed. This closure is to allow efficient operation of machinery, ensure safety and allow the surface to dry and settle prior to OHV use.

    We understand this may pose some inconvenience to trail users but rest assured, this short term closure will result in sustainable and enjoyable trails for years to come.

    Your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated as we work to complete necessary and high-quality repairs to this trail.

    Boyd Moore

    President, Sunrise Trails ATV Club
