Trail Conditions
Stop at All Stop Signs + Update #1
(05:20 AM, Feb 22, 2019)

Update #1  10 AM
      #2 is still on the trail since 8 PM last night. Just returning from Bass River on Trail 19. First day of free Trail Permit by the NBFSC. Must have the trail permit sticker displayed.

Fri, Feb 22nd, Club #1      Another 10cm of useless snow, but we’ll take it for insurance purposes.  The three groomers were out last night. The #1 was on a 14 hour tear, up 507, 508, Trail 22 ,then back up Piston Alley. The #2 was over from East Bathurst up to Nepisiguit, down to the Host and back To East Bathurst on Trail 19 and the Blue Monster was up to Rogers Lake from Nepisiguit and did Trail 22 from Nine Mile Shelter to the 22/507 intersection. 
    Getting ready for another busy weekend with the “Free Pass Weekend” so we’re expecting an influx from our Maritime Neighbors. Note: you must have your free permit sticker. Please drive with care and attention and please observe all warning and trail signs. There have been numerous near misses with car sled incidents, where sleds are not stopping at stop signs. Stop ahead signs give warning that there s a stop sign ahead. With the high banks of snow that we are experiencing it is so very important that a rolling stop is not adequate. Some of our stop signs are in remote logging areas and hose 24 wheelers don't stop on a dime.

The signs are all up on trail 19 from simpsons field up into park . I was talking to kyle they were unable to groom it today because there operator was sick but he has a operator lined up for tomorrow. This is going to be a great trail to have opened now we have a good connection to 503 to the 23 or over to the 22 trail makes some good loops for sledders we will see more traffic because of this trail being reopened.

Conditions Approaching 10
(05:45 AM, Feb 20, 2019)

Wed, Feb 20th, Club #1 -21  Wind Chill -27
    All groomers functioning this morning. Trails are starting to bear resemblance of pre storm conditions. We got the #1 back to where we picked it up due to a faulty cab lift. It did Simpson Fields to the Island Lake Shelter back over to Serpentine via 503 and Trail 23. He is about 6 hours away from Rogers Lake. The #2 was out 17 19 hours doing the lower section from Bass River to the Atlantic Host on Trail 19 and up to Nepisiguit. It was a cold dangerous night last night. Trails should set up pretty good. 
   Our supper is tonight and tickets are still available (call the Lodge at 548-9174) for our Turkey Supper sponsored by Steve’s Electric, City Center Service Station Ltd and Boucher Machining Inc. We are nearing the month of March and you may want to visit our events page for some interesting events in Nepisiguit’s calendar. 
    Thanks to Denise and Roland for cleaning up around Nine Mile Shelter. Wood from the wood shed, kindling, sweeping, etc. There is a lot of littering along the trails, especially at intersections where it is a usual "Pit Stop". The 10% factor is here where you see cans paper etc, thrown in the snow. This is not right you 10 %. It reflects badly on the the snowmobiling sport. If you see anyone throw a can or paper don't say anything, just make sure that person sees you pick it up and stuff it. Strong Message Sent to those @$$ 0's.

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.
