Saint John ATV Club monthly meeting this Wednesday, December 4th at 7pm. Mingle and enjoy some finger foods a 6:30pm.
Please note the following washouts on our trails to keep an eye out for since the latest rain storm. We will get them fixed up as soon as we can.
Ryan road near the Ryan farm a culvert is washed out and it has been marked. Quaco Road past the Ryan rd heading toward St Martins washed out. Trail 32 as it is known is a complete write off an impassable. Vaughn Creek Rd heading for St Martins has a small washout. These I’ve marked with caution tape but again be very careful out there.
2014 memberships will be available at the meeting and are also available at Service New Brunswick.
Also, please note that we will not have a meeting in January because it falls on New Years Day. So next meeting after this week will be February 5
