Park update

Posted on August 15, 2011 at 2:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Hey everyone!!

The park conditions have improved amazingly.

The water jump is almost perfect and in a few days it will probably be dry and we will have to fill it again. lol

The mowing is starting in spots today and in huge swatches on Friday.

Lots of jumps have been moved off the course to allow for proper mowing but they will be back in place slowly through out the week.

Please check the facebook page for immediate updates on jumps being replaced. Lots of permanent jumps to jump though!!!

Remember the new fee schedule (cheaper).


The Sockey season has started and the park is NUTS with fisherman. Please be aware that we need to share the front parking lot with fishermen and we are going to encourage people to park on the grass over the weekend as the lot will be full.

The water hose will remain open and clear to use.

Thanks all!

An easy way to support Island 22

Posted on June 16, 2011 at 4:09 PM Comments comments (0)

Dear wonderful Island 22 Supporters!!



Thisyear we are excited to use Regal Gifts for our Fundraising Campaign. All the money we raise will go towards the park, jumps and our continued strive to raise enough money to put new footing on the new front ring. 



Regal offers more than 1000 products with hundreds being priced under $20.We are sure everyone can find something either for themselves or as agift for family and friends. I even noticed this cool horse themed jewelery box where a rearing horse spins to music (rather than a ballerina) COOL!







Regal has designed our own website for safe and secure ordering – . Please read all the details on the homepage.

You can start placing your orders immediately and all orders must be placed by December 31st, 2011. We have decided to keep this open for the whole year. We dont like the idea of putting you under pressure to buy something quickly. Just try to remember this great site when you have to buy a gift or even when you have the urge to buy something for yourself. ;-)


After placing your order on Regal's web store, the products are delivered directly to you. In stock items generally arrive within 7-10 business days.

To ensure your order is delivered quickly, they need you to either enter a physical address (not PO Box) or include your phone number when asked during the order process. For speedy delivery we recommend including both.

Regal has a low shipping rate - only $5 per order under $124.99 or 4% of the order total if your order is $125 or more. ( plus taxes)

Our Organization earns at least 30% on every order and up to 35% if we all buy more!!

Product Exchanges are done directly through Regal’s Exchange Centre – Refunds can be requested through the Centre as well as long as this campaign is open. After the campaign closes you will only be able to receive an exchange.

We thank you for your continued support!!

Drop In Fee Update

Posted on March 21, 2011 at 1:54 PM Comments comments (0)

There will be no $10 drop in fee charge until the gate house opens new the end of May.

All closed park clinics and events will be required to pay the park rental fee of $200 per day.

We encourage you to purchase your seasons pass before May to avoide the rush and prevent any line-ups at the gatehouse.

If you plan on riding at the park more than 5 times between May and October the seasons pass is more than worth it. Also if you have a family of children the seasons pass if a large money saver. The forms are linked on the home page.
