Eight members of the local Arrow Lakes ATV Club attended the 16th Annual ATVBC Jamboree and General Meeting in Greenwood, BC, last week.

Though conditions were dry and dusty everyone had a good time. Organized rides on Wednesday and Thursday saw the riders touring old mine sites in the area. Because of the fire in Rock Creek and areas nearby, all organized rides were cancelled for Friday and no one was allowed into the bush on Saturday. Undaunted, participants of the Jamboree made the best of being in the city of Greenwood. Local merchants saw a lot of money spent as shoppers strolled up and down the streets and visited the various shops.

Riders were entertained Friday night with a wine and cheese evening put on by the Fort Greenwood residents and Saturday a tasty roast beef dinner followed by a  silent auction and a dance was  enjoyed by the 166 participants.

Greenwood is working at becoming OHV/ATV friendly, as have several other towns and cities in Canada.
