Closing out a riding season...but the work never ends. - Bruce
We are closing out the riding season in southern NH. I want to thank our grooming operators and trail maintenance volunteers for the countless hours of work that has be put forth this fall and winter season. I also want to thank the individuals behind the scene in landowner relations/permissions, club paperwork for grants/grooming etc., and all the other necessary work that goes into managing and operating our club. You would be surprised to see how much work is required to keep this club viable and any club for that matter!

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE LANDOWNERS FOR WHICH OUR TRAIL SYSTEM WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE.

The club will be holding its annual meeting at the Happy Family on Friday April 7th at 6:30. There will be election of officers for the upcoming season as well as discussion about upcoming projects and the sale of a skandic.

Thank you for reading,

Bruce Blye (Pres)

Update on our trails and local trails - Bruce
We will be grooming to Bear Brook Tonight if we can get through there. You will be able to connect with Cor15 in Pembroke so you can loop up to the gas station on rt4 in Chichester and points north. The northern gate will be open so you can get through.

We will not be grooming down to the lake because it is not safe to cross. The rest of the system will be groomed as possible.

Pembroke, Epsom, Chichester, Pittsfield, Northwood (only north of rt 4) will be out trying to clear trails and grooming.

Be safe...there will be lots of different conditions/hazards out there!

We will be out grooming again - Bruce
We are getting into winter again. Big snow today and maybe more over the weekend.

Bear Brook State Park is closed and gates are not open and northwood lake is not safe or any body of water for that matter.

We will begin grooming and packing once the storm has stopped. I am sure there will be trees down with the recent winds. There is also not much of a base so hazards will be in the trails. Please stay on marked trails only. it is going to take some time.

If you do go out help the grooming crew by moving debris out of the trail and cutting trees if you can.

Easy Come Easy Go...UGH. - Bruce
Our trail system is now CLOSED.

We are done grooming at this point unless we really get pounded. The warmer weather and high sun angle will probably not allow us to open the trails again.

We do have a regular club meeting this Thursday, March 2 at Land Dimensions on Rt4 in Epsom at 7pm. Elections will be coming up soon...so if anyone is interested in a position let us know.

Come to the meeting!

All for now...

Bruce
