ATV improvements will provide benefits

On July 11 the Summerland ATV Club installed two more tables and fire rings at Crump recreation site outside of Faulder.

Dear Editor:

On July 11 the Summerland ATV Club installed two more tables and fire rings at Crump recreation site outside of Faulder.

Club members also worked on the Trout Creek ATV Bridge to widen it for side-by-sides  to cross safely.

So far the B.C. government has invested $15,000, on upgrades to Crump Siding recreation site in preparation for the ATV B.C. Jamboree July 15 to 20. This is a great legacy project we are doing, for all of Summerland residents  and visitors, alike. When is free camping for  all of us not a good thing?

With KVR issues being resolved at a provincial level, we’ll have a great ATVing site established, for all to use.

When the ATV B.C. Jamboree and Summerland ATV poker runs are completed, the club will digest the idea that through our local combined efforts we’ll have left behind a free camping ATV area for all of us to use.

Plus Summerland business have donated and supported our club to make this happen.

We’ll have up to 200 ATVers coming for this event spending their money locally, supporting our Summerland  business.

John Rasmussen, vice-president
