A COUPLE THINGS

Hey Toadies,
I hope you all had a good winter. We sure could have used more snow, though. But I guess the season is over for us. So, we will be taking the trails apart on Saturday March 29th. The plan is to meet at Therm City at 9:30am. Bring wheelers if you got ‘em. If we get a lot of people, we can make short work of this.
ALSO, one of our landowners, and, who lets us keep our groomer in his barn, Carl Abbott, is very sick. He has 2 brain anuerisms. They operated on one, but the other is inoperable. He is in therapy in Rochester and Artie said it doesn’t look good. There will be a benefit for him on Saturday March 29th around 6:00 pm at Tanner Valley Golf Course. Please attend and show support for one of our very valuable land owners. If anyone would like to make a donation, please make a check out to Kristin Abbott.
Finally, don’t forget our last meeting for the season on Wed April 2nd at Orchard Vali at 7:30. let’s have a good turnout for the last meeting!
Happy Spring!!

BE CAREFUL AT BEAK & SKIFF

Hi Toads,

Trails are open (for now). But Steve Frank has advised me that Beak & Skiff is doing some work on their driveway where we cross at Rt 80. They are putting a culvert in and there is a lot of equipment there. So be careful and go slow through there.
Don’t forget our meeting tomorrow (Wed. 3/5). We need a good turnout. Come to find out how the Poker Run went. And THANKS to everyone that made it!!

GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS

Hi Toadies,

  The good news is our Poker Run is tomorrow!!! The bad news is that due to landowners requests, we have closed our trails. So we can’t ride to the Poker Run. But, we can still DRIVE, and I am asking everybody to do that. Please participate. If you can’t do the whole Poker Run, come to Orchard Vali a little at 6:00pm and you can get 5 cards to draw and dinner for $20.00. Or- dinner only for $10.00. The Tom Barnes project is playing for our listening pleasure. And the Toad/Cellus  raffle drawing will be taking place after dinner. So, come get dinner, buy raffle tickets and enjoy the music. See you there!!

CHECKING TRAILS -SAT. 12-28

Hey Toads,
Steve Frank and Artie Eipp are looking for help to check the trails on Saturday Dec.28th. Steve has noticed a lot of signs blown down, so he wants to hit all 19 miles of our trails to check everything out. Please meet at 10:00am at Fox and Hogsback Rds. Depending on conditions, bring a sled or a wheeler to check the trails- judging by the forecast, I would think a wheeler!!
Be there or be square!!

GATES WILL BE OPEN

Just talked to Steve Frank and he said that George Ryan -one of our very generous and much appreciated land owners- will pick up the key for the gates and unlock them tonight. So you can ride anytime after midnight. Be careful- you never know what’s out there!!

GATES ON CLIFF SIX’S PROPERTY

Hey Toads,
I just talked to Trailmaster Steve Frank, and he says he won’t be able to open the gates on Cliff Six’s land until about 1:00pm on Wed. This is on the hill behind Tanner Valley that runs to Fox Rd.. Unfortunately, this means that anybody coming from the north before Fox Rd. won’t be able to ride until 1:00pm tomorrow. I hope you don’t get too mad, but that’s the way it is!!
Also, our next meeting will be Wed. January 8th. The first Wed. is New Year’s Day, so we will make it the following week.
Ride Safe everybody, and come to our next meeting!!

A REMINDER

Just a reminder about trail work tomorrow (Sunday 15th). We will meet at 10:00am at Fox and Hogsback Rds. This our last one before the trails open on Wed, the 18th. We still have a lot of touch up work to do, so let’s have a BIG turnout!
I talked to Jim Donath today and he is doing very well. They went in to unplug his left carotid artery on Tuesday the 3rd. I thought they were going to just do a roto-routing type thing, but they filleted him like a fish, put a temporary bypass in, cut his artery wide open, cleaned 65 years of crap out of it, and sewed it back together. So, he has about a 2 foot slice in his neck. But, he says he feels really good and will be at the next meeting.
I just talked to Dave Donath, and he said we may try to build the new tracks for the groomer soon (without Jim). I will keep you posted on a date for work. Dave says we are ready to groom if there is enough snow. So when we finally ride, we will have smooth trails! A HUGE THANKS to Dave Donath, (and Jim of course) , and all the people that groom. We are looking for more volunteers to groom, so, if interested, call me (447-2070) or Dave Donath.
I just got back from doing an interview with Channel 9 NEWS on the new snowmobile noise law. If you happen to catch it, remember I am not a professional! And please encourage everbody to keep their exhaust STOCK!
Thanks everyone and PRAY FOR SNOW!!

LAST BIG PUSH!!

Also our safety instructor Darryl Martin is putting on a NYYSA Youth Safety Course on Saturday Dec. 21st. It will run from 8:00am to around 4:00pm. If you have any 10-17 year old to sign up, call him at 715-1902 or call me at 447-2070 or 446-4881.

Thanks everyone and Pray for snow!!
