Trail Permit Reminder
(06:00 AM, Nov 10, 2019)
Daytime temperatures will hover around zero degrees while nighttime temps will approach -8 for the most of this week here in Bathurst with a mix of light rain and snow. This will help start a base for the upcoming season, but this could be a little early to start forecasting what is inevitably to come. We just hope that we can keep this for the start-up on Dec 15th, which leads us to a reminder for picking up your Trail Permit.
The Trail permits are available now at Service NB and for people wanting to sign up for our Club #1, Nepisiguit Sports Lodge Snowmobile Club just make sure you designate Club #1 on your permit. We urge the slogan “Buy Where You Ride”. For our members in Nova Scotia you can pick up your permit at http://www.fullthrottlepowersports.net/ at their location; 399 Cutler Ave in Dartmouth or at the Petro Canda Station in West Pubnico; also from PEI you can pick them up at Toymaster in Winslow http://www.toymaster.ca/listings.php?nu=2&type=28 . For all other out of province members or want to be members you can use the application form mailed to you or download the form in the “permits” section of our web site (save $15; the mailing fee by doing so with our club). Substantial savings for everyone by signing up before the “Early Bird Date” of Dec 15.

Nov 1, Club #1
Club Business Sponsors: First we want to thank all of our business sponsors for all the help that you give to our snowmobile club. Without your continuous support, whether it be financially or with other donations, we could not survive with the expenses incurred with trail grooming.
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 bathursttrails.com 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. http://www.bathursttrails.com/en/sponsors
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 19/20 season will be either mailed or emailed by November 28th.
Red Pine Shelter Wood
(06:00 AM, Oct 30, 2019)
Tyler Mullin writes: "A big thank you to Jason Roy and all else involved in adding wood to Red Pine Shelter on Trail 23!! Looks like great wood.
The rest of what's needed will be looked after on Saturday November 9th."
Tyler will look for volunteers at that point.
Red Brook Shelter in Place
(06:00 AM, Oct 27, 2019)
HUGE day today!
With a lot of help, we got the new shelter in place and completely usable (except for the lighting, which will be brought up after December 15th.)
The Help: Joel Cormier, Kris Boucher, Tyler Frigault, Scott Mullin, Andrew Carroll, Ron Scott, Myself (Tyler Mullin). Front row: Blair Boucher, Daniel Roy. Along with others successfully hauled, blocked up, and leveled the shelter, installed the chimney and stove pipe, built a fantastic front porch and new stairs, fixed the wood shed, and relocated the current outhouse closer to the shelter.
We had the first fire of the new Red Brook Shelter to unwind after a big day of work, and had a lot of great laughs.
This building, and all the time put in by so many volunteers is really something to be proud of and it really shows that our community is one of the best.
With all the donations of material, money, and time, there is no doubt that people will be impressed when they visit our newest snowmobile shelter.
It's a great incentive to continue improving our system having a result like we do. If everyone does their part in maintaining what we have, things will only continue to get better!!

Thurs, Oct 17th, Club #1
We had great reaction over the news of our Trail 501 into the city with over 7200 people reacting to that announcement. It is obviously a great addition to the trail system into the city, which at times more access to rooms and services were in great need. There is a lot going on with the club and we’re pushing forward with our agenda. You can also access our 2020 events on our website as well. Don’t forget our AGM for club #1 on Oct 24th at the Atlantic Host. We are aiming for a good turnout. Please attend.
We have the permits in the mail for our friend in PEI and Nova Scotia. They should be available for easy pick up at the end of this week or early next week in Winslow, PEI at Toymaster and in Dartmouth, NS at Full Throttle Power Sports as well as West Pubnico a the Petro Canada Service Center. The permits at Full Throttle were couriered down so they should have them now. The trail permits are also available for out of province members at SNB and also through our mail in application form on our web site under "Permits" step #2 on “Permit Information”.
