Years 2006 to 2008 in Review

Northumberland District ATV Riders Club was formed in 2006.

In 2007 and 2008 there were many firsts for the NDATV club: we held dances; euchre tournaments; participated in the Apple Blossom Festival, the Applefest, Grafton Canada Day, and the Warkworth Santa Claus Parades; participated in the Relay for Life Cancer Walk; started our ATV Maintenance Seminars, GPS courses, and held our first First Aid/CPR courses; a fundraising ride in memory of Lizzy Corbeil and our first fundraising ride for “Food for Thought School Breakfast Program”. Of course we had rides, road trips, participated in KATVA’s Fundraising Ride, our first scavenger hunt ride, an ATV rodeo, and participated in Earth Day cleaning up garbage on our trails.

Also in 2007, NDATV constructed a bridge over Cold Creek. ┬áThe bridge was built September 1, 2007 and passed the final engineering inspection. This bridge has a span of 52′ and sits 12′ off the water.┬áThis bridge was the brainchild of Al Chapman and Robby Dekeyser. They started on this project in the spring of 2006. With the assistance of both members and non-members of Northumberland District ATV Riders Club we have made this part of our trail both safer and more environmentally friendly.

On September 13, 2008 a dedication ceremony and stone unveiling was held during the 2nd annual Ride for Lizzy event, dedicating the Cold Creek bridge to the memory of Lizzy Corbeil.
