ATV Accident - RM of Argyle

The All Terrain Vehicle Association of Manitoba extends deepest sympathies to the families and friends affected by the tragic ATV accident that occurred June 15th in the RM of Argyle.
ATV Manitoba looks forward to the day when the Province of Manitoba has an official designated trail system with proper signage to alert riders to potential trail hazards. A sustainable off road vehicle trail system will provide riders with a safe place to ride, thus reducing the risk of serious injury.
ATV Manitoba supports safe, responsible riding and is in the process of developing a rider safety training program that will provide education and hands-on training to ATV riders of all ages.

The all-terrain vehicle association of Manitoba held its fourth annual AGM on Sunday, March 24, 2013. The AGM was one of the best attended to date and featured four guest speakers – Oksana Buhel of the Canadian Off Highway Vehicle Distributors Council (COHV), Tammy Headworth of One Insurance, Jill Ruth of the Mid-Canada Marine and Powersports Dealers Association, and Jim Summers of Rider for Dad.
Oksana Buhel enlightened ATVMB members on the purpose of COHV, and how ATV clubs and provincial organizations fit into their overall mandate. She presented the different levels of organization within the ATV world and demonstrated the similarities of each, how they were intertwined and how we can all work together.
Tammy Headworth of One Insurance spoke of the importance of having the right insurance coverage and took time to answer questions from the membership on the appropriate insurance coverage for club activities and explained how ATVMB’s umbrella policy covers the association and the clubs.
Jill Ruth of the Mid-Canada Marine and Powersports Dealers Association, reported on the work that they have been doing and the partnership that we have been able to form with them. The support of the dealers association is very important to ATVMB as they have a vested interest in seeing ATVMB succeed and support our work on designated trail development. Forming partnerships with like-minded organizations increases the strength of our voice when dealing with issues that impact our sport.
Jim Summers of the Ride for Dad provided a presentation on how the organization came into being, their purpose, and how the various charity events are organized. ATVMB members realize the importance of fundraising for such a worthy cause and have established the Manitoba ATV Ride for Dad Chapter, with the first charitable ride to take place in September of this year.
