    The club would like to extend a big thank you to all those who braved the weather to joins us for the rally.We would also like to extend a very special thank you to Rapid Revolutions and Wild Country Powersports for helping to both sponsor the event and man checkpoints - we would have very likely been short of manpower without them.  If you ever have a chance to meet Cam and Melinie Beaulieu be sure to compliment them on the fantastic job they do organizing this event year after year.


    See you all next year!

    The mapped, maintained and approved snowmobile trails in our area are looked after by the Alberta Beach Snowmobile Club.  When the snow accumulates around 10 inches most ATV’s have difficulty maneuvering the hills and trails, which at that time the snowmobile club begins grooming and the club would ask for respect from the ATV community.


    Some of the snowmobile trails are on private land and these owners only open the trail to snowmobiles and ATV’s become trespassers. Snowmobilers must purchase a trail pass to use private property which provides our club and land owner with liability insurance. This trial pass helps fund the costs occurred in grooming and maintaining the trail. The greatest advantage of having maintained snowmobile trails is that we can groom them and make riding much safer and help prevent trespassing. After many hours of volunteer work and much expense a well groomed snowmobile trail can be destroyed by ATV’s.


    So therefore the snowmobile club asks that ATV users to be respectful and stay off when trails are groomed and most importantly do not use private land. The Snowmobile Club is open to ATV use on “non groomed trails” that are on public lands.


    As both groups are OHV and still are blessed to have a place to ride it is in all best interest to work together. It is a privilege not a right to have trails in Alberta and that can be revoked at any time by any level of government.

    A snowmobile is designated as such when manufactured. Any vehicle (bike, truck or ATV) altered and fitted with tracks cannot be designated as a snowmobile (insurance issues).


    Thank you and if you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact the Alberta Beach Snowmobile Club info@absnowmobileclub.com

    We'd like to send a thanks out to all the participants and spectators that came out for the event.  The weather was perfect and it was a great day as we saw some fierce races and had some good laughs.


    Also, thank you to all the volunteers, Melinie and Cam Beaulieu in particular, who worked very hard to ensure the event went smoothly.


    While the event was a success, we have begun to see declining number of contestants that come out to race.  We do know that many riders didn't want to risk breakdowns before the next CCMR race, but we also feel that it's time for a bit of a redesign to the mud pit.  The redesign is still in the works but I'm sure it will be awesome and a completely different experience.  Be sure to check it out next year!!!

    We had another great turnout this year! We are unsure exactly how many machines were there but had 594 registered riders.  Thank you very much to all those who came.

    The 50/50 was run by the Alberta Beach Lion's club who'd been selling tickets for quite some time. The winner was Lakota Wood who won $4696.

    Here's the winning poker hands:
    1st – Tom St. Pierre – 5 of a kind $1000.00
    2nd – Doug Krasowski – 5 of a kind $ 645.00
    3rd – Ryan Mercer – 4 of a kind $ 350.00


    We'd also like to thank all the people who volunteered this year and helped the event go as smoothly as possible.  We'd also like to make a very special shout out to Cam and Melinie Beaulieu. They've been doing all the club rallies since the beginning and the amount of work they do is amazing - they pretty much ARE the rally.

    We must now plea to our members and all those who have enjoyed our events in the past for volunteers.  We need volunteers for the ATV rally on Feb 20.  All volunteers will still have an opportunity to ride the rally.  We are anticipating a higher than usual turnout again this year and will require help to ensure a fun day for everyone.


    We also require volunteers to assist with the Kids' OHV Novelty Challenge on Feb 19.  This event continues to grow in popularity year after year and it is becoming increasingly difficult to guarantee a fun day without adequate assistance.  There is very little work involved and it is great for some good laughs.


    Please contact info@lacsteanneatvclub.com if you are interested in donating a little of your time.
