Big River, Saskatchewan, was the scene of a very successful spring rally on May 12, 2012. The day started at Ski Timber Ridge, which is the site of our local downhill ski resort, with a pancake breakfast put on by Ski Timber Ridge members.
Alfred Prosfsky, who is president of the Timber Trails ATV Club, reported that more than 200 ATVers from all over Saskatchewan and Alberta came out for the rally. Members of the Saskatchewan ATV Association (SATVA) were in attendance as well, handing out garbage bags to the riders for use on the trail.
It was a warm spring day when the ATVers took to the trails that local club members have just developed. The trail system offered both dry and wet options, and everyone seemed very happy with the trails. The club had its members cook up hotdogs and had drinks available at a location along the trail in the forest.
The riders returned to Ski Timber Ridge where prizes were awarded and raffles took place. The local ski club offered refreshments and a beef-on-a-bun supper to the hungry, thirsty riders. The day was a huge success with many riders confirming that they would definitely be back for future rides. The local community appreciates riders travelling from long distances and staying over to enjoy Big River. We are nature's doorstep.
