NOTE FROM OUR
As we look forward to
yet another snowmobile season, once
again there has been a lot accomplished but still more to do.
Most bridge and trail repairs have already been made, but
trimming and signing remains to be done in most areas
before trails open. It was nice to see some new faces at some
of our projects this year. With most bridge and trail projects,
many hands make quick work. Most of the bridges done this
season were striped of the old decking during the week and
re-decked in three to four hours on Saturday Mornings. On
Saturday, September 22, we had enough help to re-deck both
the Gerry Rodeo Grounds and the Christmas Tree Farm
Bridges along with making repairs to the 80’ Bridge in
Kimball Stand. All three of these projects were completed in
a period of about 5 hours.
I would like to thank our Trail Coordinator, Don Cornell
who schedules the repairs, orders all the lumber and supplies
needed and sees that they are delivered to the project site.
Over time we have also standardized our deck design
allowing many parts to be cut in advance, speeding this
process. We also have dedicated crew that have been very
proficient at rebuilding these bridges, but additional hands
are always appreciated. I would like to thank everyone who
found time to offer their assistance, equipment, and expertise
to date and in the future as we prepare for the season. We
hope to see you on the trails.
