I hope Many of you guys can attend this year, have plenty of fun and THINK PROVINCIALY!!!!!! work as a TEAM for the good of our sport.
A few months ago you might have heard that the Chapleau Snowmobile club was folding due to the lack of volunteer has now a full crew to help tackle the next snowmobile season, there will be a club and the trails will be open in Chapleau. The Club is applying to get funds to do major trail upgrades to the F trail South of Chapleau. I wish them good luck and hope they get the funding.
Here is a News realease that was sent out from the Chapleau Snowmobile Club.
Monday July 7th
The Chapleau Artic Watershed Snowmobile club held a meeting in hopes that enough people would show interest in keeping the club going another year. It was a wonderful to see 20 people step up and offer their services. We were able to vote in 6 directors and 4 executives. Our new president is Richard Groleau, Vice-President is Kathleen Bouchard, Treasurer is Chelsea Swearengen and the secretary is Dr. Doris Mitchell. The other six directors are Danny Connelly, Joel Langelier, Israël Fortin, Real Fortin, Rick Glabb, and Chetan Patel. Nadia Fortin has agreed to be a communications officer and Joel Lafrance has offered his services as a resource person.
That being said the work isn’t done. It takes a team to make this club successful and our team is not yet complete with the numerous volunteers that are required for the grooming, brushing, signage and rescue calls. If you can spare some of your time please contact Kathleen Bouchard at 705-864-1313 705-864-1313.
We are also looking to local businesses for sponsorship in hopes that we can help raise money for the club.
The Dubreuilville club has not seen much action this summer, some brushing has been done on some trails, The F trail has had about 2 kms of trail built on the side of the road to avoid the plowed road in the Lochalsh area. A crew was out one day on the D trail and brushed a few kms, more to be done in the next few months. keep check for more updates.
Keep on Grooming
