Open-limited

We are open limited as of yesterday afternoon. Matt sent some photos in today to give a heads up about what to expect out there in the wetter areas. These photos are of the B trail in 2013 but he says we are pretty much the same water wise now. We don’t have the skid bridge this year though. Hoping for some colder temps!!

In 2013 volunteers built the bridge, Dave McNabb supplied the skids.

Grooming

We are planning on commencing grooming on Friday January 6th weather permitting. We have received a great deal of moisture in a short period of time and hopefully the mess will start to freeze by the weekend. Standby for more.

Open

Open!!
Our trails are open limited. Please respect that some neighbouring clubs are not so check the interactive map for that.

See you out there tomorrow 😉

Trail Update

It looks like the earliest we will be grooming in Sunday. Still have some staking left to do and brushing. We are really waiting out of respect for our landowners with winter wheat. I am expecting grooming will start full time on Sunday with trails to open shortly thereafter.

We also need to have our signage inspected by our team prior to officially opening the trails.

SKR Shack update

Apparently Santa Claus has already made an appearance at the new SKR SHACK. Although the donor probably wishes to remain anonymous I will say that they used only the finest in “Shouldice Designer Stone”.

Lets have a meeting next Tuesday night Dec 13th 730pm at Mike Mortons Pine Tree Drive just south of Hepworth, last house on right at end of cul.

Anyone with LUP’s please bring them.

And please remember we are in a “finish the clubhouse” fundraising mode. If you can contribute please contact Mike Morton.

And a big thanks to those who already have made a donation.

Update November 2016

On a really positive note, I mean really positive note Christy Carson has offered to take over the website and FB stuff and will be starting very shortly. I think our club has made some very positive moves recently, thanks largely to some pretty cool people and their genuine interest in our sport.

I would further like to welcome some new members to the SKR executive.
Mark OLeary has assumed the role as 1st Vice President
Brent Barfoot will be assuming the role as 2nd Vice
I can’t announce Treasurer yet as he’s still on holidays and doesn’t know it yet.
Randy Walker remains as President, District Nine Representative and Landowner Coordinator
Matt Marsh, former VP has agreed to stay on as Signage Coordinator
Paul Davis, former Secretary Treasurer  has agreed to stay on as Signage Inspector
Thanks to Paul and Matt for all their efforts .
Moving forward we will be looking for more volunteers in other positions, namely Clubhouse and Social.

Oh, did I mention the “new” Shack” is progressing nicely. More to follow.

Grey Bruce Loops Ontario Snowmobile Tour / Intrepid Snowmobiler

greybruce_final-1-1024x688

There are many reasons you should snowmobile Grey Bruce loops for your snowmobile vacation…the Grey Bruce area is favourably sandwiched between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. For snowmobilers, these lake effect snowmakers generate some of southern Ontario’s best snow conditions, pushing white streamers to bury the land even when other areas aren’t getting any. Our Snow Goer Canada crew – Craig & Dawn Irwin, Dan Carty, Brent Murphy and I – were first hand beneficiaries of this bounty as it snowed four of the five days we visited what is also the northern part of District 9 of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) and of the tourism region Grey Bruce Simcoe.
