Welcome!

Text Box: The purpose of Eastern Oregon All Terrain Vehicle Association is to preserve and expand local motorcycle and ATV riding opportunities, through education, cooperation and determination.  There is a definite threat to motorized recreation all over the country as well as right here in Northeast Oregon.  We intend to fight to keep our present riding areas open as well as expand areas for the future.

Announcement

 

          If anyone has been looking at this site it is obvious I have been neglecting it. I hope to do a better job of keeping things up to date this year. I would still like to find someone to revamp our website though. It is old and stale. It just needs updated. If anyone knows of someone that could help out with that, please let me know.

 

FOREST PLAN

          The Plan has been suspended for now and is on hold until further notice.

 

 

MERA MOTORIZED TRAIL WORK DAY

         

          June 1 is our annual MERA work day, 8am till 2 pm. Meet at the MERA Foxhill parking lot. Sean is wanting to build an ATV trail down below the campground. Rob and I are going to reroute some singletrack around the Falcon DMZ area. I think the jeeps are just going to do some cleanup and brushing.

                  

 

BRESHEARS

 

          I haven’t even tried to get to Breshears yet this year. The snotel still shows about 2 feet at Moss Springs. Might be a little later than usual getting things opened up this year.

          We are still planning on replacing the bridge on Bell Creek trail this summer. Timing will depend on when the water level in the creek drops enough to do the work. The F.S. fell and barked the stringers last fall and they are laying near the creek. We will have to bring the other materials up there when it is closer to when we build. I hope to have at least a couple of weeks notice so people can plan to help out.

         

 

                                                          GROUP RIDES

          Group rides were kind of a bust last year. I don’t know if we will try again this year or not. That will come up for discussion at the meeting.

         

                                                                           Y.S.E.P.

          We had our first Y.S.E.P. evaluation on May 25. Had 12 kids go through it. We will schedule the next for late June.

 

                                                         Volunteer Hours

          We need to keep better track of our volunteer hours. This applies to both MERA and Forest Service lands. Anytime you do any trail or road clearing on the F.S., keep track of the time you spent and the road/trail number. This all counts toward club volunteer hours, and has the added benefit of letting the F.S. know what roads are being used, giving them more reason to keep them open. You can report them to me at any time. Contact info is below, in box on the left.

 

                                                            WORK DAYS

 

          I will try to post works days on here and on facebook, if I know a couple of days in advance what my plans are.

We put some more blocks in 327 near Haywire Creek. Should take care of the worst of the mud but could still go a little higher.
