Trail Update: 2016 10 08. We need help getting our trails ready for winter. The weather is awesome, so bring a friend or two, grab some brush saws or loppers and get out there! After Thanksgiving Monday (October 10th), the new storage location is 218 Fotheringham St.. The same protocol applies. Please sign out equipment and use the side door on the building.  We haven’t yet figured out where to leave the trailers. If anyone has any suggestions, please let us know.

Adopt a Trail:

The Adopt-a-Trail program needs you.  Volunteers are needed to claim a section of the trail system and be responsible for pre-season maintenance – primarily brushing – in preparation for the snow.  Trail sections can be broken into small sections or large ones depending on the time you have available.  It’s a great way to get some fresh air out on the trails in the fall either by yourself or with some friends, and helps the groomers when they prepare the trails once the snow falls.  Equipment and gas is provided by the club.

If you already have adopted a trail section, or plan to keep your section from previous years, Thank You!  If you would like more information, please contact Trish Anthony at anthony_2@sympatico.ca.  People using the equipment are asked to use the sign out/sign in form with the equipment so that we are able to keep track of where the equipment is during the brushing season.

Groomers needed:

If you are interested in learning how to groom and helping the few groomers that we have, training is provided and you will learn from experienced groomers about the equipment and grooming methods.  Contact Darryl Gannon at darrylgannon@yahoo.ca if you’d like to help out.
