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.

Both groomer were at the shop yesterday for preventive maintenance. The John deer for its 500 hr, regulars preventive maintenance and repair and the New Holland also; but this morning after a test ride and do about 10 km of trails; the pressure pump let go,  in the New Holland so the process is in place to replace it. The coop dealer up Matapedia (Quebec)  said 3 to 4 days before receiving parts + 1 day to do the job, so hope the John Deer 

runs good.   She’s on the trail right now on upper block  19 W, 301, and 308 (loop), so she will be on the trail 24-7 days   to keep the trail in good shape. We will be doing the lower block tonight doing 19 E  to the Host, and 304 Danny’s  ... keep in mind; there are working hard and they are getting old; so we try to do our best, as volunteers.


The good new is that we are now fully open at the club house  BAR and KITCHEN service

After, the last storm, we did well on grooming, so far. We groomed 19E down to Host, 19W to 19/03 shelter; 308; 307; 303; the loop 301, then sugar shack. On 19 from the clubhouse to Arlo shelter, we did 4 passes, and #2 New Holland groomer is on the trail 19E down to host, and will do 304 for a 2nd pass. As they told me the trails are very good and will get hard packed with cold weather. So the plan is trying to keep the trail in good shape and get the groomers out saturday night. #2 groomer will be back; on lower parts, doing 19E; 304; 310 and; #1 groomer doing upper block, 19W; 308 and 301 loop.

Well, the plan stays on for today. The two groomers were out on the trail and sign installations on some area. The # 1 john deer was on the upper block doing 19 up 301 to the shelter, 19/22 and come down by 19 E and do 303 Upper Lake and at the same time the # 2 New Holland was on 19 E, doing 19 down to host and do 304 Danny’s and also do part of 310. We were lucky; we when through the ice at Millstream River, almost got stuck; but finally, we got it out. So, be careful ; with only 2 inches of ice at the snowmobile pass. We pushed snow on top of it, but be careful. We add some warning cone to advise the riders. Men, play safe; it’s not deep; but lots of current.
