Trail Leader Course and BBQ @ NAPA Auto Pro, Rockland
Apr 18 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Notice

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, and guidance from the Public Health Authority, we are currently weighing the risks and this year’s trail leader course may be delivered virtually. If you intend to participate, it is imperative that you register, as we will be using that list to communicate any official changes and the details for accessing the virtual space should it become necessary.

Description

The aim of the trail leader course is to provide knowledge and share some of the club’s collective experience with those individuals that volunteer to lead the group. Individuals completing the course should gain an understanding of the skills, knowledge and experience to be an effective leader on the trail.

The course will cover topics such as:

  • Communications
  • Recovery Situations
  • Incident and Emergency Management
  • Vehicle Inspection
  • Spotting
  • Environmental Considerations

Taking the course alone does not make you a trail leader, but is an important step in the process.

Registration

Member Run – 2020 Season Opener @ Darling Line
May 3 all-day

The last two seasons, the EOTB has had to break with tradition and move our season opener to the Darling Line do to excessively wet conditions at the Gorge. This season, we thought we’d skip the rescheduling and go straight to Darling and limit our season opener to members.

The trail runs along a power line offering a variety of rocky obstacles to play on with the option of bypassing obstacles you don’t feel you, or your vehicle, are quite ready for. As the Season Opener usually attracts a large number of vehicles, please come prepared for a slow pace, with plenty of opportunity to socialize while watching your peers tackle the various obstacles. It’s a great opportunity to get to know your fellow members and take some great photos!

Given the unpredictability of our climate, the schedule could be changed. Please keep an eye on the calendar.

Meeting Place

Primary Meeting Location: Bells Corners Loblaws parking lot @ 9:00am

Map of Loblaws Bells Corners

There will be no secondary meeting place for this event. Please note, we will be starting from the North end of the trail, so we will not be passing through Hopetown. If you are coming from west of the city, you can join the rolling convoy as it passes through Almonte.

Departure

Primary Meeting Location: 9:30am

Requirements

Front and rear tow points are mandatory for this trail.

Fuel

Please come to the meeting location fully fueled and ready to roll.

Member Run – Crag Lake Adopt-a-Trail @ Crag Lake Trail
May 9 all-day

In partnership with the OF4WD, the EOTB has adopted the Crag Lake trail. We will run the Crag Lake trail with a focus on clearing any debris or trees that may have come down over the winter months, trim branches encroaching on the trail and pick-up any garbage we find along the way.

While we will be running the trail, you can expect that progress will be slower than usual as we work to maintain the trail.

Meeting Place

Primary Meeting Location: The Bogie General Store at 9:00am

Given the length of the trail, we will forego the usual meeting spot in Bells Corners and meet at The Bogie General Store at the intersection of Highways 508 and 511.

Departure

We will be leaving no later than 9:30am.

Equipment

Since this is a trail maintenance event, we recommend you bring some work gloves and appropriate tools. We will likely require one or more chainsaws to clear downed trees, clippers and machetes to trim branches and we will bring garbage bags to collect any garbage we find along the way.

Requirements

Tow Points are mandatory for this trail. A lift and 33″ or larger tires is recommended for this trail.

Fuel

Please come to the meeting location fully fueled and ready to roll.

Non-Members

This is a members only run. If you wish to invite a non-member, please contact the trail leader to confirm that this event is suitable for your guest.

CB Radios

Please tune your CB to channel 4.  No CB?  Bring your FRS radio tuned to channel 4.

Reminders

Remember to bring a lunch, plenty of water, boots, cameras and your sense of adventure. It is also recommended that you carry a tow strap and some shackles as basic extraction equipment. Bug spray and sunscreen may also be wise.
