Member Run – Bear Skulls
Jul 23 all-day

Description

The Bear Skulls trail gets its name from a pair of bear skulls we discovered perched on a rock next to the trail. While the trail has been negotiated by a stock 4-door JK, it is tight, and has several optional obstacles that will certainly challenge even the most modified vehicle. Among these optional obstacles there is a tight squeeze that has been known to tear soft tops, an arm-wrenching rock climb and the infamous waterfall, that still hasn’t been done without the use of a winch.

There is an extended section of the trail that features a steep climb, however the last several trips to the trail, we’ve had to skip it due to damage, or simply being late in the day.

Description

In accordance with tradition, Camp EOTB is being held in Calabogie at Black Donald Tent & Trailer Park. Camp EOTB is an opportunity for members to enjoy a weekend of off-roading and camping while fostering a sense of community among club members. This year, we continue the tradition of a club BBQ after the trails on Saturday, and each evening, a community bonfire will be lit for people to gather and share stories from the trail and otherwise discuss our shared off-road addiction.

For those who do not wish to camp, you are welcome to come up for the trail runs.

Member Run – Calabogie Line Dusk Run @ The Bogie General Store
Aug 13 @ 7:00 pm

Calabogie Line at Night

Description

The Calabogie Line is a 4.5km stretch of power line that roughly runs parallel to Calabogie road. The entrance is just north of where the power line intersects the road and heads north-north-east from there, exiting onto Ferguson Lake road. The trail has experienced relatively light use, although it is commonly used by dirt bikes.

The start time for this event is not a typo. The event will begin in the evening, allowing members to do a Saturday double-header and put those trail lights to good use.
