Well, when it is not working it not working. The new pump on the #1 New Holland failed again, after only 10.5 hrs of grooming; so we are in contact with la COOP matepedia in Amquis Quebec, and its 10 days before we get another pump (on rush), and the #2 John Deere, also failed, today. The engine is cutting out (look like injectors) so today green diamond is closed (family day) so will see tomorrow morning first thing.  So right now we did 19 from the host, up to 19/22, and did 308. One unit is in shop New holland at the clubhouse, and the john deere, is in his way slowly to the shop also; we will let you know a.s.a.p., when the good news arrives.

 The #1 John Deere will be on the trail tonight, going towards 19 E, also doing 304 and 310 and coming back to the clubhouse. Tomorrow morning both groomers will be on trail 19 (at grant brook) appx. 10 km from the clubhouse, to try to pick the drag that was left on the trail; so be careful in that area. The #2 New Holland will take over on upper block  19 W, 308, 22 and 301, and will be scheduled, 24/7, until we replace the 2 front lag on the #1 John Deere.

The # 1 John deer is still on the trail, and as you see all the system is in the green, so it is a good performance from operators to keep the trail in shape so right now, they are in the upper block on 19 W, and will do 19\22 up to 180 road, back to the area in open clear-cut; to repair drift and will do 308,307,303 on the way back. The good news is the mechanic, from the coop, up Matepedia Garage, is in the shop, repairing the #2 new Holland; so hope to see it on trail tomorrow, doing lower block 19 E,304 and 310 and John Deer will do 19 W up to 301, then up to 180 road on the south side and will return on is way back to the clubhouse. Another place that is clear-cut; is back of caribou mine.

Well, it was a very busy weekend for the sledders and we see lots of visitors from all over the maritime provinces. It is good for our local sponsors and their business.

So since Friday after that snow fall, we did over 450 km of grooming with only one groomer, the #1 john deer 24/24/7 nonstop, so we were able to keep the trail system in good shape. All trail was done, and redone, 19 E and W, 310, 304,301, 303, 307, 308; the plan is to continue with the John deer until the #2 new Holland is ready.

We did all trails from the Host, up to island lake, on trail 19; also did 308,303,307 and 301, to sugar shack, looping double, so the trails are in good shape. After this snow fall; we will be back on the trail; starting from the clubhouse; toward East and West on 19 and 301. . . We are still waiting on parts for the #2 new Holland (fuel pressure pump)

Well; it looks like, the #1 John deer is running well; we did the lower block 19E, 304 and 310, up to millstream; and today we did also trails in the upper block 19 west, up to junction 19/22, 308,303 and 307.

It was not fun; big drift on 19 up at some area where, there are clear-cut of wood; so it took more time, with only one unit. So next trip; we will do 19 up to junction 301 trail; also trail 22, up to 180 road.

We will need to unhook the drag, to do the part of trail up to junction 19/22. Way too big drift; and come back to pick the drags and continue, and come back to the clubhouse (also there are areas with big trees down; so be patient. The parts for the new Holland should be here for Thursday morning.

 Well, we just got the John Deer running now at noon; so it will be on trail19 E, down to the Host, and will do 304 Danny’s, and it will go slowly; there are big snow drifts and some trees across the trail; with that big wind we had; so it will go slow and it looks to be the same, up on 19 W; so with only one groomer on the trail, we will need help to keep the operators on the trail, so if you have a chain saw, please come and cut the trees, so that the groomer could go through; not only the snowmobile. The new Holland; we are still waiting for the pump to arrive so hope for Thursday.
