Activities Winter 2017

CAUTION

From Jess Grooming Report (on the right column of this page)

Be watching for water holes as well as tree wells enlarging significantly which could swallow your snowmobile.  They are plowing 62 road back towards Lookout Mountain to resume logging in that area.  

Be Considerate and Safe - As April 1st approches we ask the four wheel vehicles to PLEASE consider leaving the snowmobiles a trail to reach the top on Jubilee Road.  Please be considerate and do not ruin the whole road for us.   Do Not ride wheeled vehicles before April 1st as you could be fined.  The excavator that traveled up Jubilee to Owl Hoot Lane had to repair the trail to the tune of $370 even though he was tring to fix his cabin.  Snowmobiles expect to ride the trails until the first and tearing it up can create a dangerous unknown hazard.

 

We have had reports of snowmobilers riding over the top of Bone-Chapman shelter.  Riding over the top of cabins and shelters is DESTRUCTIVE.  If any of you know who is doing this please talk to them, or report the vandalism.    

 

The March meeting was well attended.  Annual election results for 2-year Board Member positions include Chris Jensen, David Baird, Tammy Davenport and Glenn Warren.  

CONGRATULATIONS to Cecil Berry and Tammy Davenport honored as Snowmobilers of the Year for all the efforts they have contributed over the past year!!

Thank-you to Bob, Cecil and Tristen for brushing work all day Sunday on the lower trails!
