Trail signing complete

Lots of mud, lots of ice, lots of hammering through the frost.
Thanks to all who stepped up to the plate and volunteered their time to help knock this important task out of the park: Lavoy, Randy, Pete, Tina, Jackson, Matt, Levi, Alyn, John, Regan, Steve, Kyle, Garrison, Jason, Kevin & Devin. Wow, what a great crew!
Special thanks to Wayne at Dakota Cat for lending us an Arctic Cat 4-wheeler…check out the pic, beautiful machine.

Trail Signing starts Saturday, Nov 16th

Trail signing is scheduled to start on Saturday, Nov 16th. The plan is to meet at 9:00am at Casey’s in Horace14585281_10154672558869165_188894429_nOnce assembled we will determine how many crews we can send out and which areas each crew will cover. If you have a 4-wheeler please bring it along as they provide a real boost to efficiency. If you have safety clothing (fluorescent yellow or orange) bring that along as well and wear it. We will have some available but want to make sure everyone is as visible as possible for safety.

Can’t commit to the whole day? That’s fine too. Any time you can provide would be great. Contact us via Facebook or  email us at snoriders@hotmail.com to let us know your schedule and we can exchange contact info to ensure we can meet somewhere on the trail.

Installing the trail system is the biggest effort we take on each season. We are all volunteers and without volunteers, there is no trail. Please consider helping out, even if it is for a short period of time, every set of hands helps.

For those that could not be there, we hope to see you at the event next year.

Once again this year we had several businesses donate items for this event. Their generosity and support is critical to the club’s ability to maintain the trail system. Be sure to visit and thank these businesses for supporting you local trail system.
