Its coming up fast folks, our favorite time of the year!!!
We did get better organized this summer. We now have an official board for our club. We have wrapped up a few things at the new barn but have a couple more to go.
OK, the main reason I`m on here is to announce some brushing parties. There is alot to do after last winters ice storms. We have one party going out this weekend and are planning to have 3 more for the first 3 weekends of Oct. I am in charge of organizing everything so give me a call on my home phone at 906-492-3378 if you can come UP and help. Free t-shirt for everyone who shows up!! I`ve got 4 out-of-towners and only 2 locals right now lined up for this weekend. I`ve got just 2 out-of-towners for the first weekend of Oct. and about 5 for the third weekend. Come on UP folks for some fun and socializing!!!
I`m gettin fired up! Will post more later.

We had our first brushing party yesterday and it went well. We had a total of 11 people show up. We picked the hardest section to do because of the size of our group. We did the Federal Forest section between the Silver Creek Bar and Lakeshore Drive. For all of you that ride UP here you know how tight that section is. It was a TON of work and alot of walking but we GOT `ER DONE!!!!
Ya know, it never ceases to amaze me the help we get from out of town fellow snowmobiliers. We had 2 students from LSSU in the Soo. We had a group of 3 from the Detroit area and even a lady from Marquette, which is a 2 1/2 hour drive, come by herself to help. So here we go…..
A HUGE thank you goes out to everybody. The out of towners are….Jeff Regan, Joel and Kim Smith, Zack Cardinal, Andrew Walcott and Jamie Dolan. The “groomer guys” that helped are Mike Cook, Kevin Csirke, Dave Moore and Chris Saunders (me) and a groomer guy to be Greg Bender. Again….a HUGE thank you!!!!
After we got done we all went back to the barn and grilled out with burgers and brats and a beverage of choice.

Just had our 2nd of 4 brushing parties yesterday. Everything went FANTASTIC!! Me and Mike did a little 2-tracking the other day and scouted out the worst places. We did a section of trail #8 across from the old groomer barn to Farm Truck road. It was only about a mile and a half but was quite thick and canopied over.
A HUGE thank you goes out again to the out-of-towners who stepped up to help!! They are…..Duane and his son DJ O`Parka and Fritz Domres. Had a new local in town help out, his name is Crit Holland. Hope to see more of him!! The “groomer guys” who helped are Mike Cook, Kevin Csirke and Dave Ferguson. I wasn`t able to help cause I was too busy with my business. Pretty small group this time but they GOT ` ER DONE!!!
We will be doing it again next Saturday so if any of you have time…..COME ON UP!!! I only have 3 people on my list as of right now. You can call my home phone at 906-492-3378 to sign up. We are looking at the section from the old groomer barn on trail #45 to M-123. Its pretty thick and canopied in there too.
Again…..THANK YOU to the guys that helped this weekend….I hope you realize how much we appreciate it!!!!!
