Activities coming up
Hello and Merry Christmas to all. Old Man Winter has given us a taste of winter so snowmobiling season is fast approaching. We still have some trail maintenance to continue and could use some help. So get active in the club and help participate. We still need to clear some trails from past storms.
We have our next stated meeting at Land Dimensions on Rt4 at 7pm this Thursday December 6. Come and join us. We will be setting up some last minute trail clearing work parties and trail signing. We also have 1 bridge to install, build, deck. You can also join the club and get your "must have to register your sled" voucher number.
The club is having its annual Christmas Party and Yankee swap this Saturday at the Cotnoir home at 20 Hoyt road in Epsom (off Lords Mill Rd). His home is open at 3 and wear an ugly sweater. Pot Luck Supper at 6ish and bring a wrapped gift for the Yankee Swap. All ages invited...Yes it's a family affair. We all have a great time together so come join the fun and rekindle friendships and meet new people.
We are also sponsoring the monthly Merrimack County snowmobile meeting next Tuesday night December 11 at the Epsom Fire Station at 7pm. All the clubs in the county come to meet and get updated on issues as well as discuss issues and concerns of our own. Lots of good talk and information.
With the winter season on its way...get out and join your local club and even join a club in the other areas that you ride in. That money goes directly to the club. Also register your sled because without money from sled registrations...there is limited funds to pay for grooming and trail construction/maintenance.
Since snowmobilers pay for most of the trail maintenance in our vast network...I encourage even non-snowmobilers to join or support your local club. Snowmobilers only use the trails a small portion of the year but x-country skiers, hikers, snowshoers, horses use our trails year round...why not help us out.
That's it for now...thanx for reading and see ya soon.

Time to join the club and do some trail work!
It has been a hot and humid summer and it does not want to go away. We are starting up the meetings again with a meeting this THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th at 7PM at Land Dimensions on Rt 4. We are going to talk trail work and groomer maintenance as well as plans to build a much needed groomer shed.
You can also join the club at the meeting because you will NEED a VOUCHER NUMBER to register your sleds PRIOR to going to the local agent. So you can also do it ON-LINE.
We need help as usual for fall projects and new ideas usually come from newer members also.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

There is a regular club meeting this Thursday, May 3 at 7pm @ Land Dimensions on Rt4 in Epsom. We will be discussing summer grants and projects for trail improvements/maintenance.
AS A REMINDER...THERE ARE NO ATV TRAILS IN EPSOM. I have been receiving A LOT of Complaints this year about ATV usage of the snowmobile trail system. You need written landowner permission to ride on ANY parcel of land that is not owned by you. Please help us preserve the trail system that we have now and ride somewhere else!
