little trail update. We got about 3 inches of powder and temperatures are
cold with some good wind blowing. DCNR is out trying to pan down what we
have. Current light snow at 5:45 p.m. We will take out the small groomer
tonight and try to pack down some of the powder. Keep doing the snow dance.
At this point, not worth riding until we get some more snow on the trails.

GOOD NEWS!!! If you
remember, back in the spring we applied for a DCNR grant so that we could
purchase a set of Matt tracks and a new Mogul master drag for our trail
truck. Well, we're happy to share with you that the
DCNR has approved our grant. As soon as we get the check from the
DCNR we will be ordering our tracks and drag. With any luck, we may have it
on the trails this season.
We would like to say
Thank You to the members who have paid their dues and sent in extra
donations . . . we could not do it without you. The trails are ready and the
gates will be open as soon as we have enough snow, The chuckwagon is waiting
and we will have as many trailside cookouts as we possibly can this season.
We will need everyone's help this year in supporting the club as we will be
financially challenged with the purchase of this new equipment due to the
required 20% match. We are asking if you have not paid your membership,
please do so as soon as possible, if you have any friends that are not
members of the club, please ask them to join. We need all the help we can
get. We hope to see you on the trails soon.
Our Club's purpose is to promote friendship and good snowmobiling among all riders. Members are encouraged
to attend monthly meetings.

season are due. You can
print an application
