The club received a call from a landowner in the area of Oak Hill/Job Road. People are riding across the property and not following the posted signs. This is a major route in the middle our trail system. If we lose this trail, we lose access to Sebago Lake, Windham, Gorham, Buxton, Whistle Stop, Watchic Lake, Steep Falls, etc. Please respect our landowners, without them, we would not have a trail system (state wide!) Riding on their property is NOT a right, it is a privilege.
Our grooming team has been out for the last two days and nights grooming all of the trails in Standish after the 'Blizzard' on Saturday. The trails are in excellent condition as you can see in this picture from Sunday night. Get out and ride folks, there is another storm coming at the end of the week! Please visit our online store to support this effort by purchasing your club membership and/or making a donation to our trail fund. Have fun, ride safe!
All trails are open, have been groomed within the past week, and are in good condition. Expecting 12-18" of snow tomorrow (according to the weather reports), which could add significant snow depth. Get out and ride the powder and we will return to grooming next week after the trails have been ridden. Have fun, ride safe!
Standish trails are open, although we advise riding with caution. Several icy, thin spots and some water holes. Groomed from whistle stop to Town Hall, and from Johnson Field to Route 237. All other areas are very thin. Think snow!

Summer Snowmobile Club Work
For those of you who haven't thought about snowmobiling since April, but appreciate the fact that we have a local trail system that will take you anywhere in the State of Maine and also to New Hampshire, Vermont and even Canada, you need to check out the awesome work done by several of our club members over the summer! As you saw from earlier posts, we are using an old garage to house our groomers and trail maintenance equipment, graciously donated by Gorham Sand & Gravel. We spent last year stripping it down to the frame, re-siding, new soffits and re-roofing it along with adding power, lighting, heater compressor and a new overhead door. Well, this summer the crew has almost completed the inside with insulation, drywall and paint. What amazing progress! We have to thank the many volunteers for their hard work, the local businesses (listed on website) who donated most of the materials and again Gorham Sand & Gravel for use of the building and property. Without all of them together (along with our local landowners), it would be difficult to have the awesome club that we have today to build and maintain the 90 miles of trails. No matter what you use the trails for, please consider a donation to the trail and/or maintenance funds at our website store. www.standishsnoseekers.com
In April we lost one of own, Clay Stevens. He will be deeply missed by all our members and everyone who knew him. He enjoyed being outdoors, spending many days in Jackman at camp, out on Sebago Lake on his pontoon boat, or relaxing by his camper in various campgrounds throughout Maine. He loved hunting and fishing trips up north and tropical vacations down south. You could find him anywhere from running rabbits with his beagles at the Beagle Club in Buxton, riding his snowmobile all over the state, or camped out at the racetrack watching NASCAR or local races. He was a committed member of the Standish Sno-Seeker's Snowmobile Club, spending many hours grooming and cleaning up the trails. Clay loved his toys, including his Harley that he took on many rides in the summer. He was also the 'Clark Griswold' of Standish, known for his Christmas light display each year and his love and generosity during the Christmas season. Clay was a family man who enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his wife and family. In honor of Clay, we will be dedicating the train trestle bridge in his name, as racing on the lake by the bridge was one of his favorite things to do. He will be missed.
If you would like to make a donation to the club in Clay's name, please visit the online store and purchase any quantity of trail fund donations and type 'In Memory of Clay Stevens' in the comments sections. Thank you!
