Sorry for no post yesterday, but as I was about to write it, the phone rang, it was our president, the 2017 Husky was dead on the trail, Bobby couldn’t make it as he had his own commitments, (can’t blame the man as he would have already put in 40 plus hours of volunteer work for the club just this week), so made some phone calls and next thing ya know people are mobilizing, this was 10 am yesterday morning, so I headed out first and with the help of the operator diagnosed the issue and called out (thank goodness we had cell service) to those bringing in equipment to let them know what supplies are required. So we got started with preparing to take the track off as the problem was the drive motor was falling off the frame and when it was coming apart broke a hydraulic hose fitting (we had to go to town twice but finally get the correct part). Finally around 8:00 last night the machine was back together and heading to North Shore. Jamie was 24 plus hours with that groomer (if you know a groomer operator and you snowmobile, THANK THEM) and he had to get up this morning and go to work, wow. Also want to thank North Shore Construction for waiting until the machine arrived at the shop and put it inside to thaw. Also a big thank you to the volunteers who had the knowledge to help put it back together, Gary, Ron, Eric. So the next time you think a trail is rough or should be groomed more often, please keep those thoughts to yourself, volunteers don’t need to hear it, as you can see, some are willing to give up a day off to help their club so YOU can have groomed trails. Get Out and Enjoy Your Trails. Be Safe, Be Kind.
