The season is fast approaching and there is a definite nip in the air. Some of you must be doing the "snow dance" because we've already received a few inches and this weekend's temperatures are going to be darn right cold. Keep on Dancing!
We had a monthly meeting last Thursday and Curt brought us all up to speed on bridge repairs and the trail changes for this year. Replaced this fall were the two bridges on trail #137 at Little Hellgate. The new bridges have been elevated above the trail to allow plenty of room for the spring ice flows which can really wreak havoc.
Everyone will be very happy to hear that the Perry Stream trail, #140 and the west side of Perry Stream, trail#147 will be open this year!! Also, the trails bureau has worked on a trail extension of trail #112 connecting Magalloway Road to Perry Stream trail #140 via Coon Brook to Klondike Camp this season. We will lose trail #136 and a portion of #112 eliminating the Pisgah loop and there will be a number of re-routes on the neighboring club trails in Clarksville on trails #20 & #21, and to get to Errol, trail #18 will be accessible from Coleman State Park. These trail changes are due to logging activity. Curt's detailed list of trail changes will be in the next NHSA Snow Traveler.
The new 2014 Trail Maps are at the printers and will be ready by the start of the season. So get your new trail maps to avoid any confusion with the trail changes. Please don't forget, map sales = grooming money!!
Our new groomer and drag is scheduled for delivery early December. Oh yeah, it's going to have that new groomer smell too.
Curt recently visited the Warming Hut in preparation for the upcoming season, and to see all of the great improvements that have been done this fall. I'm not going to tell you what they are but I'll give you a hint; we might have to change its name to the Warming Hut Café! Just kidding. You'll just have to stop by to see the changes for yourself.
Our annual Craft Fair will be held on Saturday November 30th, and Helga and her little helpers have done it again this year, gathering all sorts of great Raffle items and a several really nice Silent Auction items too. We would like to thank everyone that has so generously donated again this year. All proceeds from this event fund our donation to the Easter Seals Camp Sno-Mo. Please stop by the clubhouse and enjoy the craft fair which opens at 10:00 am.
NEW THIS YEAR- We will be having a "Blessing of the Snowmobiles" which will be held on January 4th at a location to be determined. Please look for further information and updates on our web site or on our Facebook page.
The Annual Turkey Feed is also on January 4th starting at 4:30. Each year the proceeds from this event fund our Pittsburg High School Scholarship.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Trails from all of us at the clubhouse
Well its sad to say but the 2012-2013 snowmobile season has finally come to an end! It was a great season and aside from numerous groomer break downs went very well. All gates and trails on the PRR system have now been closed for the season. Thank you to the volunteers too numerous to name as well as all who attended club events, the warming hut, and dropped some money into the grooming donation bucket. We look foreward to next season after regaining our sanity from a nice warm summer.
Thanks to all
See you next season, or hopefully at a work party before!
