Presidents Message 2015 season

Its March 15th at 7:45 am.  This is a sad day in the life of a snowmobiler.  One click of the key board and now trails closed.  Mother nature gave us lots of snow but nothing to make a long haul season.  But we did get 8 weeks of good riding.

Our groomer operators gave it there best and put in another banner year with over 1100 hours of grooming.  I want to thank them all for all the hard work and the odd hours for all they did.  We had a few misshaps but that’s to be expected.

I hope everyone got to try out the new and to be improved 605 trail. This trail connects Harcourt and Wilberforce together. I would like to thank the private land owner and Highlands East Township for making this happen. The Paudash Trail Blazers would also like to thank Jerry Taylor for clearing the trail and making this all come together in such short notice. We will improve the trail over the summer and fall fix some bad spots.

Staying on trails the ‘E’ trail between 118 and Harcourt is still being researched and will be in place for the 2016 season this fall.

We can’t thank the landowners enough for there continued support which allows us some awesome trails.  With out them where would we go. So please if you see a landowner on the trail or in his driveway that we cross; stop and give a thanks; it does mean a lot.

I would also like to thank all the board members and volunteers that put in hours and hours preparring functions and just running the club for the season. We held the annual BBq this year and it was another success. A big thanks to Yamaha for coming out again. Also this year we tried something new on short notice and that was holding a pancake breakfast on family day.  Of coarse it had to be the 2nd
coldest day of the year.  The pancakes were good and lots of fresh coffee was to be had.  This is going to go again next year so plan your ride and come out for breakfast . To be held at Cardiff Community Center.

We had a board member of many years pass the torch to another member. We the people of the Paudash Trail Blazers would like to thank Bill Ripley for his 25 plus years of volunteering and being on the board as President, Vice President, treasurer, Master Driver Trainer and also Trail Patrol Instructor.  Thanks Bill for all the years.

Well its done; the send button has been hit.  It’s all over but the melting.  I want to thank everyone that purchased a permit or permits from Paudash. Good or bad the club is strong.  We have to remember that Paudash set the bar.  Now everyone is at that
level.  Now we have to set the bar higher.  Suggestions and comments are welcomed.  Within reason please.

Our AGM is set for May 23rd at the Cardiff community center. Everyone is welcome to be there. Doors open at 12:00 meeting starts 12:30 P.M.  Come out and support your club.  Volunteers are always welcomed.
Thanks for another great season and see you at the AGM.
Terry Post , President

Note From The President

The Paudash Trail Blazers are pleased to announce the new trail from Wilberforce to Harcourt. This trail leaves Wilberforce on the same route. About a kilometre. In it detours to the left avoiding a problem spot. This trail is very scenic as it travels over the hills above wilberforce. On the other side of the hills are the old rail bed which we will use to go into Harcourt coming out on the street behind the fuel bar. I would like to thank the township of highlands east and the private land owner that is allowing the trail to go through his property.

I would also like to that the many vendors that sell our permits. I would also like to thank all the volunteers on the board that do countless hours keeping the club running. If you’re interested we still need board members to help keep this club a vital part of the snowmobiling.

We also need to thank all the silent helpers that do endless hours and work throughout our club. This is to the people that run equipment fixing our trails and volunteering there time to help fix equipment.

Don’t forget about our february bbq. That’s the frist saturday in february. Please stay tuned for we are also planning a pancake breakfast on the family day weekend.

Please be careful on the trails and thank you for being a club supporter.

Terry Post, President
