Good Day Millstream Valley Snowmobile Club 66 Members
I hope 2016 has found you healthy and ready to sled! The snow will come, I promise. This newsletter will cover various informative topics so I hope you take the time to read.
Club Directors would like to thank you to all the folks that supported the club by selling and purchasing tickets for the trip draw and the Minglewood event. Both events were sold out!
A sincere and large thank you to Meryl Stewart and company for putting on the Minglewood Event. This fundraiser was instrumental in getting us needed funds to do some much needed repairs. A tip of the helmet to him as well as the ladies who put together the dinner. The feedback was amazing and the quality was second to none.
We had significant damages to our trails and bridges this fall from the rain storm, to date we have spent over $10,000 in repairs. We had very good membership participation in carrying out the various repairs. Many of our local business supporters provided services and materials in kind or at discounted rates.. Without this support the repairs would not have been possible for this sledding season.
We have invested a great deal in improving our trail signs this year to insure we are compliant with the federation requirements. If anyone notices an issue with a sign, please let one of the directors know.
Some exciting developments to our trail system this year!
New route to Chipman has been completed
New route to Goshen is completed
Trail 835 from the Belleisle Bay to Valley View has been rerouted. Please follow the new signage and markers.
Our local trail map that is on our web site will be updated with the changes shortly. Members will also be sent a copy via email.
Work was recently carried out on our new groomer to install a protective cage around the cab along with other modifications. A long day was spent at Brock McAllister’s shop with several folks volunteering their time and materials. There is a picture on our facebook group for all to see.
The club is investing in 2 advertising structures, one next to Valley View sales and one at Berwick Irving, these structures will be used as a welcome to our trial system and for businesses to advertise.
For a cost of $225 plus HST per year will have a 16”x24” sign placed on a location of their choice. If you know of a business that would be interested in having a sign let us know.
Work on the Valley View location is taking place this morning and the Berwick location next Saturday. Volunteers are welcome to assist with construction.
