Volunteers in Action (VIA)

Have you ever been out riding after a windstorm and noticed branches down across the OFSC Prescribed trail? Have you ever wondered who takes care of the cleanup and removal of the debris?

Volunteers play a key role in the maintenance and operation of the Paudash Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club. The common goal of all of our volunteers is to improve the sport of snowmobiling and all that it has to offer. Volunteers provide the necessary legwork to complete various tasks while keeping the operating costs for the OFSC Prescribed trail system as low as possible as well as keeping the costs of trail permits affordable. Clubs are “Powered by Permits” and “Driven by Volunteers”. The quality trails our club offers are in part due to the many volunteer hours by our members.

There are many good reasons to volunteer with the Paudash Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club including making new friends, family activity, being outdoors for exercise and fresh air, manage a program, project or event, learn new skills and help keep the cost of trail permits affordable. All of the volunteers bring a wide variety of skills to fulfill different jobs for our club. Some of those jobs include billboards, volunteering at our annual BBQ, organize or manage a program, project or a fundraising event, trail patrol and much more.

Our club relies on active volunteers to complete all of the various jobs required to run successful trails during the season. You do not have to snowmobile to be a volunteer with our club. Anyone can volunteer and it is not only for the benefit of our trails but also for the surrounding businesses and communities. The Paudash Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club provides the necessary training to all of its volunteers.

Volunteering with our club is also not just about getting the job done – it is also about making new friends, having a good time and a sense of accomplishment. Our current volunteers are a fantastic group of people and I myself am enjoying not only the satisfaction of improving and being involved with the area in which I ride but the new friendships I have found with others who enjoy the sport and the outdoors as much as I do.
