Does anyone remember the Sno-Blazers Inc., from Standish Maine? I went riding with Tim Rowe up at his camp in Shirley. We had a great weekend riding to Greenville Friday night, then rode to Moxie Pond, The Forks, Jackman, etc. I found this patch hanging in the outhouse at his camp! Doe anyone remember this as the name of our club?
Hello all Sno-Seekers!
Our January meeting was postponed due to weather and will now be held on Tuesday January 22nd at the Standish Town Hall. The meeting will begin promptly at 6pm with coffee and snacks being served. We have a lot of exciting projects to discuss including the purchase of new grooming equipment, grant proposals, trail changes, fundraising events, etc.!
We opened the gates last week and a few of us rode the trails and groomed last weekend. We are starting the season with an awesome hard-packed, flat base with decent riding. The forecast for this weekend is for a lot of snow snow, Please get out and ride the trails as this will make it easier to groom after the big storm.
The single digit temperatures have also allowed Sebago Lake to freeze over much of the lake. This has only happened over the last few days. Please remember that no lake is ever safe to cross. Use extreme caution! I could hear the lake 'cracking' last night, so pressure ridges will begin to form. Ride safe!
Thanks to those who helped out with the decking of the trestle last Sunday morning. This is always a difficult chore which was made even more difficult this year due to six inches of snow already on the ground and cold drizzly weather. We have not used this trail in a few years but have to reroute ITS 89 back to the railroad tracks due to some logging and construction on other route. A reroute map will be posted shortly.
The next meeting for the Standish Sno-Seeker Snowmobile club is Tuesday, November 13, 6:30pm at the Standish Town Hall. Pot Luck Supper will begin at 6:30 with the meeting to follow. Please plan on attending the meeting if you ride in Standish. We have a lot of new information regarding the club and could really use your support. Thanks!
The Standish Sno-Seekers snowmobile club is looking for members. We have been in existence for over 25 years. Our current membership has dwindled, leaving the necessary work to only a few people and putting the club in jeopardy of folding. This would cause the many miles of recreational trails in Standish to no longer be maintained. All grooming, trail maintenance, signage would no longer be there. It would also cause the loss of some trails due to no more landowner permission. If you ride the trails, please fill out a membership form. The club needs membership dues to help purchase grooming equipment, fuel, bridge building supplies, etc.
You do not have to devote a lot of time by being a member, any volunteering is appreciated. If you are interested in joining the club, attending meetings or would like more information, please call Jim at 207-329-1967, or visit our web site: www.standishsnoseekers.com
