Club Business Sponsors 
      The Nepisiguit Sports Lodge Snowmobile club is responsible for 300 Km of Groomed trails in the Bathurst region. We run two Lamtrac groomers and run these units for 1800 to 2500 hours in a season. With the trail system and heavy traffic we have it is near impossible to run this equipment with the expenses they incur on Trail permits alone. 
       We would be proud to count on you as a sponsor of a small bill-board on which we can display your advertisement for your business at our lodge. 
       We would require from you a bill-board with exact dimensions 12” X 24” at your cost. We can help you in that regard as we have a local business that can do it for $30.00 or you can get it done yourself. Your email, contact person & mailing address is also required. Besides having your sign at the lodge we also give your business the Bronze Level advertising on our website. From this point on we will then invoice you for a yearly fee of $100.00 + HST. 
      You can also check our different levels of advertising on our website by checking or “Sponsors” page below. 
Our Sponsors are key to our organization. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please Contact us. 
Please Note:  To all those who have sponsored signs at the Nepisiguit Lodge your invoices for the 18/19 season will be either mailed or emailed by November 25th.

Nepisiguit Club #1

The Nepisiguit Snowmobile  club #1, which is the oldest snowmobile club in the province, has the largest membership in New Brunswick with 949 registered last season (826 for 15/16),  (849 for 14/15), (794 for 13/14), (809 for 12/14), (765 for 11/12), (579 for 07/08) with a strong Nova Scotia and PEI contingent and maintains a trail system about 400 Kilometers in length. The club started in 69/70 with one small groomer with membership fees of $10 and groomed  about 175 Km in the area between Brunswick Mines (Old Theriault Rd), Highway 430 (Nine Mile East Rd), and the now Caribou Mines.

Trails were designated and signed by such names as Caribou, Bear, Fox, Rabbit and Beaver. Log shelters were built along the trails and were also designated with animal names. One unique feature at the beginning was that all traffic was in one direction. It made for safer trails as the drags were only so wide. The trails were made in a series of 5 loops and one could vary their trip in any combination of loops as they so wished. We only use a small percentage of these trails today in our present system< namely: Nine Mile East, Nine Mile North, Rio, and the Forty Four. As time progressed  the trails expanded closer to Nepisiguit Falls where the Bathurst Fish and Game Ass. had built a lodge which is currently the Nepisiguit Sports Lodge. Then it progressed into Bathurst to the Atlantic Host Motor Inn.  Then the trail system blew up into the Chaleur area ( we were all one club back then) and down to the Miramichi to the Belfont area where there was a thriving club house.

Of course everything was dependent on the volunteer. Some of the founders were Howard Doucet , Bud Kenny, John Labonville  and there were a few more, plus loads of volunteers.
