Club #1 Mail-outs
(06:00 PM, Oct 11, 2018)

       The mail-outs to all our members and also those who purchased day permits with our club have been completed by the City of Bathurst and have been mailed. For those who have indicated their email, the City has used it for this letter. Contents are as follows: New Brunswick; Club Letter, Event Calendar.    Out of Province; Club Letter, Event Calendar, Permit Application Form.
      Notes above mail-out: 1. All NB residents must register at SNB. 2. For out of province residents you can use the above registration form, follow the directions (you can save $15 by using this form, which also can be downloaded from our permits page) (This is a service that the club has been providing for years).
3. Another option for our NS people is that you can purchase your permits at Full Throttle Power Sports at their location on 399 Cutler Ave in Dartmouth (they are being couriered on Friday and our PEI people at Toymaster on Campbell Rd, in Winsloe. 4. When filling out the application form please indicate the club that you want to belong to. In our case it would be CLUB #1, Nepisiguit Sports Lodge Snowmobile Club, Bathurst. It is very important that you pick a club in the area that you most frequently do your snowmobiling, because some of the revenue generated through your trail permit goes directly to that club. In other words "buy where you ride".
        Hopefully you can expect the letter within a couple of weeks by snail mail. The permits will also be available at SNB on Oct 15 and also from all clubs.

All we will need now is a good wood splitter if someone has one available to use for that morning. We will be there with the wood for 9am that Saturday, providing we can get a wood splitter, this should work out pretty good.

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.
