With the drastic rise in snowmobiling as a recreational past time in the early to mid 1960’s responsible individuals recognized the immediate need to group together and provide some direction to this new found sport. As a result, this group was formed in 1968 to provide information and instructions on the safe use and handling of snowmobiles.
The Club, consisting of about 25 members, was first known as the Bucke Sno Travellers, with the Charter President being Mr. Bill Adair. As the years went on and the popularity of the sport grew, Club membership increased and the name changed to the Tri-Town Sno Travellers. With the Club now functioning, the membership set out to access routes for specially groomed snowmobile trails. With several successful fund-raising events, enough money was set aside to help purchase two groomers. A Wintario Grant was applied for and received, and in 1978 the Club purchased an Alpine Snowmobile Groomer and Drag.
Later a second and larger groomer and drag was purchased with the financial assistance of a number of local businesses. From its’ meager beginning in 1968 this Club has grown from 25 members to an active membership of approximately 550. The Club has also organized many social events which have helped to provide a day’s outing for all eager snowmobilers from the toddler to the senior. In 1991, the Club signed up with the OFSC and our trails became part of the province wide trail system for all to enjoy!
