Dandy cold morning, this really helps with getting the trails in shape. Ron, Eric and Gilles have been out again in the past few days cleaning up some of our signage issues. We have a fundraising supper coming this week at the Halcomb Moose Barn, which is located at the end of trail 517 or you can drive there, it’s 1100 Halcomb Road, meal will be Roast Beef with all the trimmings, tea , coffee and chocolate cake for dessert, please come join us and support your club. Yesterday the dynamic father and son duo John and Kyle groomed 515, 520, 521, 522, 523 all Douglastown trails, they were training each other as one didn’t know the trails and the other hadn’t been trained on the new machine, two birds with one stone as they say. Jeff and Sterling had the 2009 BR180 floated to Allison’s Store in an attempt to get 514 opened, unfortunately as they headed north towards Portage River the beaver dams on the power line just above Allison’s aren’t frozen, Jeff fell through the ice just standing on it, so being wise they turned and headed to town, so from Allison’s to the junction of 517 has been opened, we will groom to Allison’s for now until the dams freeze if they even will. Then Jeff hooked the drag on the machine and groomed 52 South to the Miramichi Bridge and 42 South to the Anderson Bridge, thanks to great volunteers. Yesterday Alan tramped and prepared trail 21 to intersection of 52, then out to Barnaby and to the Miramichi Bridge, we will tramp the remainder of the Southside trails, then we will hook the drag on and away we go for the season. Get Out and Enjoy Your Trails.
