Northern Offroad Society

(0 votes)

Many of the residents of Fort McMurray know that off-roading options here are limited. The more land allocated to the growth and development of Fort McMurray, the fewer accessible trails for these motorsports. That is, until 2012, when Shane Ganong founded the Northern Off-Road Society of Fort McMurray, a local not-for-profit organization. Shane, an avid motorsport enthusiast, wanted to share his love for the daring sports by providing the residents of Fort McMurray with a safe environment to practice various types of recreational motorsports and off-roading.

“We are a serious society that believes that all off-road sports can be fun if it is in an organized and controlled environment,” explained Ganong. “Everyone is invited to get involved, it does not matter what motor sport you ride, the Northern Off-Road Society of Fort McMurray is about having fun for all, newcomers and veterans.”

As a not-for-profit, the society is looking for volunteers who want to get involved, learn more, and have fun participating in the sports, and meet like-minded people. “We are a relatively new organization so additional help would be great as we continue to grow,” expressed Ganong. And growth is what this organization is currently experiencing, with a racetrack that is 9.5 acres and an expansion of an additional 38 acres of land that will hold a series of trails for the sports.

The Northern Off-Road Society will be hosting a summer kick-off event in June of 2013, and everyone is welcome, so be on the lookout for more information in the coming months.
