(12-28-22) Trails are still not open, only 7 out of 45.5 trails have been inspected and blow downs removed after the heavy rains and wind storm. We’re really in need of volunteers to give us a hand clearing downed trees from the trails so we can be ready to groom once we do have enough snow. If you can help, please contact us, every bit helps as we are few in number.
(12-23-22) We’re excited to put our new to us 2006 John Deere 6420 into use this season. We purchased from the Presque Isle Snowmobile Club this past fall. this machine has 1/2 the hours (2500) of our older John Deere 6420, a 10′ wide drag with a 2010 upgraded undercarriage. It looks like we have a buyer for our older machine and the sale should happen next week. This will be our 3rd season having two machines to groom with vs one. The 1 mile reroute intown came as a last minute surprise learning in October that there was a very good chance we wouldn’t have our trail in town this season due to some landowner issues so we felt it was best to do what we have talked about for a few years now, rerouting 105 in to town over 3 landowners vs 16 (see map of reroute on our trails webpage). The trail has been completed and just needs to be signed, many thanks to those full time workers JOsh, Ryan, Clay & Troy, Ron and Eric that made this happen on their time off! After Christmas we’ll get out to finish signing, cut blown downs and low leaning trees over the trail. But we’ll need a good snow storm or two before we can groom trails. We’re few in number and most active members work full time so we are dependent upon the help of others to step up and give us a hand removing brush and trees before we can groom. Contact Dave, Troy or Ryan if you can help (click on contact webpage). Ryan Wellington has cut 1 mile of trail 105 in Weston with his excavator and mulch head made passible with a generous donation from Rick & Kathleen Pettengill. We have about 3.5 miles we would like to cut from the Number 9 Road to the bridge over Scagrock Stream if anyone wants to help cut or make a generous donation of a mile or part of a mile. The cost is $1400 per mile and takes about ten hours with using the excavator & mulch head. We’ll keep you updated and joining our club helps financially as every bit helps! Note, joining can all be done online using a credit card, family/individual memberships are only $30 and business memberships are $60, thanks in advance for your support!
