website

If those of you reading this website are getting annoyed with it's content and think you would like to do a better job, please come to the meetings and take on a wonderful project of maintaining this site.  We are growing weary of carrying all of those who have the time to ride when there is snow but are "oh so busy and unable to help" any other time ~ we need your help to keep the club going and the trails open and in good condition ~ please think about it.  It is a job that anyone can do.  If you do not want to maintain the website,  come to the meetings anyway and see how else you can help keep our trails open.  You might actually have fun!  Bring your friends and family!

IMPORTANT MEETING DATE

ATTENTION EVERYONE:  Our next meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Wednesday March 11th, 2015.  The location for this meeting will be Middle Village Pasta & Grill located at 334 Main Street Middleburgh NY.  If you choose to order food before the meeting, please be sure to arrive somewhat early, preferrably at six so we have plenty of time to complete this meeting.  Thank you.

 

TRAILS ARE OPEN FOR THE SEASON

 The snowmobile trails are now OPEN for the season ALTHOUGH SOME TRAILS ARE NOT IN THE BEST CONDITION  ~ Please remember to do your part and become informed on the workings of our club.  We are running out of energy and need new people that like to work.  If you have time to ride that snowmobile when the snow falls, please remember to do your share to get the trails ready for that ride.  Trail preparation does not just happen by itself as some of you may have seen this year with some of our trails still needing trimming, new signs, cleaning of downfallen trees and brush and bridges needing repair, and such.  Please remember that no one gets paid for their work, we are all volunteers.  The trails are closed to all dirt bikes, ATV's and the like.  Respect the landowners at all times for without them we have NO TRAILS!!! 

 

NEW TRAIL INFORMATION!!   TRAIL CLOSURES AND OPENINGS!!!!!!!! 

DUE TO A LANDOWNER PROBLEM, TRAIL S77 IS CLOSED FROM WETSELL HOLLOW ROAD AND SCHOHARIE HILL ROAD - IN OTHER WORDS, YOU CANNOT GET FROM SCHOHARIE AND EAST COBLESKILL AND POINTS WEST.  THE REST OF S77 IS OPEN AND MAINTAINED. 

 

    IN ADDITION, THE TRAIL S71 IS

 

NOW TEMPORARILY OPEN

BETWEEN COONS ROAD IN HUNTERSLAND AND LAWTON HOLLOW ROAD AND CONTINUING TO THE JUNCTION OF C7B AND S71 IN THE CANADY HILL QUARRY.  THIS IS A CHANGING CONDITION AND TOTALLY DEPENDANT UPON STUPID RIDERS THAT CANNOT READ "PRIVATE TRAIL" SIGNS OR ANY SIGNS IN GENERAL.  IF THESE CLOSURES ARE CAUSING INCONVENIENCE TO YOU, FEEL FREE TO COME TO THE MEETINGS AND SEE HOW YOU CAN DO YOUR SHARE OF THE WORK. 

 

WE HAVE ALSO BEEN TOLD BY LANDOWNERS THAT WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO REPLACE BY THE BRIDGE AT MORELANDS BY VROMAN'S NOSE UNTIL THE LOWER PORTION OF LINE CREEK IS CLEANED  - RIDERS WILL NEED TO USE THE ROUTE 30 BRIDGE AT THE BOTTOM OF MILL VALLEY ROAD

 

 

 

RESPECT THE TRAILS AND ESPECIALLY THE LANDOWNERS ~ ATV'S AND FOUR-WHEELERS AND DIRT BIKES ARE NEVER ALLOWED ON THE TRAILS. 

 

HAVE A GREAT SEASON!
