Thank you to the Whitecourt Chamber of Commerce for hosting the trade fair this past weekend and to Whitecourt Woodlands Tourism for your sponsorship for the booth space. We are so grateful to SLH Picker Services and Pile Driving for hauling our Groomer and Drag to and from the Curling Rink Parking lot and for providing us with mats. Thanks to those fellows who prepped the equipment – painted, fixed & washed it. We appreciated the Polaris tent (to keep us protected from the elements) – Adrenaline Powersports. In addition, thank you to the volunteers who stood out in the rain, snow, wind and cold (all seasons but summer). Our Volunteers for this project – Jim Hearn, David Newbury, Len Danyluk, Rodney Koscielny, Don Price, Shirley Picard, Cyril Lanctot, Williard Strebchuk, Dan Guenette and Cindy Brooks.

Do you need extra money for the summer? We are looking for someone to supply our campers at Eagle River Campground with split wood (1/2 cord or 1 cord). We no longer supply wood, but will provide a name of someone who can. The camper will make the request and you will work with them to deliver the wood to Eagle River Campground and make arrangements for payment with them directly. For more information, please contact us by PM. Thanks
Golden Triangle Rally is Cancelled. We regret to inform you the Rally is cancelled due to lack of snow on 2 of the 3 legs of the rally (trails from Fox Creek to Whitecourt and Whitecourt to Swan Hills). We look forward to planning a ride next year with our partners in the Golden Triangle.
The Golden Triangle Adventure 350 Rally – March 4 & 5, 2017 information is posted on the site. If you are interested in a TWO DAY Ride, please look at the information on the site. More detailed information will be provided at the Registration, Ride contacts, maps etc. This ride is for intermediate + level riders. It is about a 10 hour ride. Two legs of the ride the first day, stay overnight and then last leg on Sunday. There is no gas available on the trail, you will have to purchase it in the community you are riding to or from.
Millar Western will be logging (Falling trees and skidding) until the end of April. They will be working directly adjacent the trails. There will be a few spots where roads will cross the trail. These crossings will be minimized and will be built in a fashion where trails remain passable for users of the trails to continue to enjoy trails. PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION AND MINIMIZE SPEED WHEN OPERATING IN THESE AREAS!
