Message from our president
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT – Dave George
To all concerned.... The people that run this club, like most other clubs in this state, are volunteers that give up a lot of time to keep our trails and club working. We have day jobs and families! Now that there is some snow on the ground people are coming out of the woodwork looking for memberships and grooming. Nothing has changed we are still doing what we need to do but if you have waited till now to join it will take longer because many others have done the same and that same volunteer has no extra time to do it. Please be patient. the trails are not opening for a couple of weeks yet. If the snow keeps up then they should be open for Dec. 15th. Otherwise please stay off the trails or we will lose them. It pisses off landowners when you rip up their land because of low snow cover. There will be surveillance and trail patrols. Please stop this before we have no place to ride.
Thank you to everyone who keeps this club running. With the winter coming keep this in mind when you are out riding the trails on our system and on other trail systems. Volunteers keep them open. It could be negotiating with landowners or excavating them or putting signs up to keep you safe. The phrase "it takes a village" is a perfect description. .
Gates are closed for a reason and landowners get angry and close them down when they see their land dug up from too little snow cover.
Thank you for your support ride smart and be safe!

Camping Kayaking Trip
Ok all, so I may have jumped the gun a little. Trying to hook up with a local company to transport and get us on the river has been a logistical nightmare. However I did manage to find a spot to put in the river downstream near the rail road bridge. This should give us
