Remember, you must be a member of a New York State snowmobile club before you register your sled, to pay $45 per
machine, or you will be charged $100 per machine at time of registration. If you register your sled at the DMV, that
county keeps the money for trails. If you register on line, the state keeps the money. Please help keep local trail
money local, and use your local DMV office.

Once again, Mother Nature has decided to mess with our snowmobiling
season. Temps in the 40's and rain will once again destroy what little we
have built back up. Please don't ride on closed trails. That was the other
reason that Erie county trails stayed closed this past week. Landowner
complaints about people riding on 1" or less of snow on their property.

Now, the other reason Erie county trails were closed was, the bridge on
Wheater Rd. washed out from the last warm up. This cut the trail off, with
no way around it. This section of trail has been abandoned, and a major
reroute was built today to eliminate the Wheater Rd. bridge. This reroute is
just to finish out the season, as there is some road side riding on Bagdad
and Wheater Rds. Please use caution on this new trail, and go slow near
the houses that you drive near.

Due to gas line construction, S-44-B the Fox Ave. to Wagner Rd.
Secondary trail
will not open this season.

Check the trail tab for individual trail conditions.

Don't forget to sell your gun raffle tickets. You must turn them in by the
February meeting
, as the drawing is at the February meeting. This is our
main fund raiser, so we can update our trails and equipment, so please sell
all your tickets.

    Just a reminder..... A snowmobile club is a 365 day club. Help is needed all year round, so
    you can enjoy it in the winter. A big THANKS to our club officers and leaders for all you do.
    Without  you, we would not have trails to ride. We must also thank all of the
    landowners, for the privilege to use their property, for our enjoyment.
