UPDATE ON THE 2016 ATV JAMBOREE
The ATV Jamboree Committee is happy to inform our riders that the final preparation for the event is almost completed.
There will be a meet and greet on Friday, July 15th from 7-9 at the Golf Course if you are in the community and would like to join us for a little snack or if you have any questions for us before the event on Saturday, please let us know. Registration will start at 7:30 am at the Manitouwadge Arena in the back parking lot. The riders will then leave from the arena and do the morning route where they will return for lunch and after lunch will leave the arena for the afternoon route where they will return to town and the dinner and prizes will be at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall at 5:30 pm. During the morning and afternoon route is where you will be given your Play in the Extreme stomps in order to receive your poker hand at the end of the day. Any questions, please let us know. We are looking forward to welcoming all our guests for the Jamboree
Play In The Extreme
Manitouwadge is the place where you can “play in the extreme” and getting there is certainly part of the fun. To take the scenic drive into Manitouwadge, turn onto Highway 614 off Highway 17. Six kilometres into your tour you will see the popular “dragons” that sit on Dragon Pond.
You will also see letters (one at a time) along the way that eventually spell “Manitouwadge”.
You never know what kind of wild life you will see on your drive. There are frequent reports of moose, bear, fox, wolf, rabbit, lynx, cougar, heron, cranes and even pterodactyls (but only if you look really closely).
A few more kilometres through the rugged beauty of Northern forests and you’re in the town where “extreme fun” awaits you.
