The 2013-2014 Season
is here and the snow will soon be on the ground. Now is time to dust
off our sleds and get ready for the upcoming snowmobile season.

Please remember that most of
our trails are on private land and these land owners require liability
insurance in order for us ride their land. Maple Summit is now paying 100%
of this insurance premium which is almost $1,200. We need additional insurance
to cover the mule, backhoe, and trailer.
We also needs funds to cover general
expenses such as: Fuel for the groomer, mule and equipment, general
maintenance cost of maintaining the club's equipment and the cost of
building material for the trail system such as pipe and wood. With around
120 members at $20 each we struggling to get by. Some much needed trail
improvements must get postpone due to lack of funds. Unfortunately the
Laurel Highlands Grass Drags did not take place this year, so the clubs did
not benefit from the 50/50.
Thanks to all
that supported the club by helping out during the recent trail work days.
Remember that Maple
Summitís trail system is maintained by
volunteers that make it possible for everyone to have a smooth ride.
Remember to reach out to other
snowmobilers and get them to support and join the club if they are not
already members. Everyone that use these trails benefit from this club's
efforts. We are always looking for extra donations and volunteers to help
with trail work, equipment maintenance, and technical web help. Remember
these trails are maintained, insured, and paid for from dues and donations
the club receives.
