Hi Trail Riders
Another season is son to be upon us. The summer is quickly turning into fall and in 2 months we may be on our sleds.
On Sept. 26 we will join the Ski Club and several other clubs for the clean-up of the Vee Lake Road. Two years ago the GNWT and TerraX Mining sponsored a clean-up of the road. We took several truck-loads of garbage to the city dump. There is still money left over in the bank to be shared by the participating organizations. We will meet at the Vee Lake Parking lot at 10:00 AM and we should finish later in the afternoon depending on the amount of garbage. We get reimbursed by the number of people from the club that show up and the number of quads and trucks used. It will likely be cool and damp so bring warm clothes and gloves and a light lunch and something warm to drink. If the weather is poor we will postpone to Oct. 3.
We will have our Annual General Meeting in late October, probably the 22nd or 29th. Time and place to be determined.
I have not confirmed it as yet but we will likely do the Ice Thickness testing for the Fire Department again this fall. We will need volunteers to test the ice thickness. It usually takes 2 to 3 hours for 3 or 4 Saturdays. Survival suits and safety gear supplied by the fire hall. We usually have teams of 3 – 1 driver and 2 people in suits on the ice.
Kate Hillman-Barnes has updated the Membership application form and it will be on the web site soon. We will be confirming with the snowmobile dealerships regarding club discounts.
