Thanks everyone! See you at Spring Jam 2006 April 28, 29
TRAILSIDE - by Andrew Ryeland
Jam 2004 a roaring success!
Parry Sound ATV District Club (PSATV) and TRAX Georgian Bay just pulled
off their third Jam and true to tradition pulled in ATVers from across
Ontario once again. Fall Jam
2004 was held exclusively in the township of Seguin and the warm welcome
was noticed by everyone.
Friday evening Terry Boyle, of Haunted Ontario fame, regaled the Jammers
with tales of local history and ghosts complete with what to look for on
the Saturday ride on the old Nipissing Stage Coach trail.
A roaring campfire added to the atmosphere and the marshmallows and
hotdogs secured the evening. Our
partners, the Park-to-Park Trail Association and the West Parry Sound
District Museum kicked in old photos and plenty of folklore to hand out to
the participants so they could appreciate the heritage of the tour.
Saturday morning everyone enjoyed a great breakfast put on by the Foley
Agricultural Society. In fact
these folks bent over backwards to make our time at the fairgrounds
extremely comfortable. Councillor
Doug Graham of Seguin Township expressed the great pleasure of the
township in choosing Seguin as the home of Fall Jam.
He welcomed the Jammers on behalf of the township and hoped this
would be the start of an on going relationship with ATVers.
The township passed a special by-law to allow ATVs access to
municipal roads and consequently to many Seguin accommodators and
Stage Coach tour was blessed from above!
Septemberís dry weather gave way to rain showers that eradicated
the dust just in time for the ride. With
just over 100 kms, the tour was a perfect highlight to the jamboree.
The quality time didnít stop with the tour.
A scrumptious roast beef dinner was served up by our Foley hosts
and to round out the evening we heard from Mike Granka and a ton of rowdy
rock and roll. One-upmanship
ruled the night with stories of 3-wheeled 4 wheelers, and legends
concocted from the dayís experiences.
TRAX Challenge tested the bragging rights of our Jammers.
A mud bog, tug of war, obstacle course, cheers, jeers and tears
completed the Fall Jam 2004 weekend.
Judging by the pictures, a lot of fine Foley dirt was transported
back home in the duffle bags of our contestants.
All left with a vow to return for Spring Jam 2005 and yet another
exploration of our remarkable outdoors.
