ATVMB President - Donald Eidse
Posted on: Friday November 4, 2016 - 8:28 pm CDT
It is with mixed emotions that we announce that ATVMB President Donald Eidse, after 6 years of service, is stepping down from the ATVMB board.
During his time, Donald selflessly invested significant time and energy into the organization, representing ATV enthusiasts to raise awareness of the sport with government, business and other trail user groups. He participated in the process that saw the Eastman and Little Big Foot trails (managed by Eastman ATV Association and Woodridge Sandhogs respectively) in southeastern Manitoba join the existing managed trails: the Interlake Pioneer Trail (managed by the South Interlake ATV club) and the trails out near Portage la Prairie (managed by Portage Off Road Vehicle Club).
While Donald's experience, passion and steady hand will be missed, he will serve for a time as Past President, to provide advice and guidance as required to his successor, Armando Brambilla, who assumes the role of President effective immediately.
We wish Donald all the best in the future and know he will continue to engage and advocate for ATV enthusiasts as a part of his club.
