     Snowing here in Bathurst, but not near as much as up in Serpentine. Just got off the phone with Alyre and he said you can barely see more than 500 feet. It snowed yesterday but didn’t accumulate much as it kept melting as it hit the ground, but through the night the temps dropped to -9 and as of his phone call there is 9 inches on the ground. There are people coming in from Freddy tomorrow. 
     He was also saying that in some of the trails there is up to 2 and 3 feet of winter snow left and he can’t recall it being so bad at this time of year. He lost a lot of business with his bear hunting as there was no one traveling due to the pandemic. Also his four wheeler business is down due to too much snow. His fishing experiences will be down as well.

Snowed Last Night in Bathurst
(07:00 AM, May 5, 2020)

Tuesday, May 5th, Club #1
     Good morning from Bathurst to all our friends everywhere. We had a little surprise this morning upon wakening to a layer of “Farmers Fertilizer”. Yes and it is still snowing. It is zero at present and this will all disappear by the day’s end. However, there is still decent snow in the woods up in the lodge area as well as through Nine Mile, Rogers Lake and I’m sure towards Serpentine. I’ve seen pictures of good snow through the camp areas of Nine Mile East. It was not unusual to see sledders come up for a short run from the lower pars of NBat this time of year, just to say “I was up sledding in May”. Of course if anyone knows “Kevin” (not mentioning his last name here) I know he will be sledding until there is none left. The trail base does stick around for the longest time, especially where it is shaded.

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.
