    We just spent 4 nights with our good friend Alyre at Serpentine. Julie, Alyre and Vicky were gracious hosts as usual. We did a lot of off-trail riding and had a great 4 days and when we left this morning to head back to Rogers Lake we had the best surprise as it was absolutely TABLE TOP all the way back! Hats off to the groomers they did an amazing job grooming the trails!!!

    It really is to bad we cant get groomers on snow in theses early snow years earlier than 15th. Get the trails set up from dec 1st on -it seems we would have been able to handle this knuckler -if we had been groomed up last 10 days -i know all the insuransce isses ect----- ect just you guys do such a great job getting ready and when rolling now base is beat out and melting much tougher for team -we had wicked riding last week-i am sure- Don you have tried to be more flexible with dates but if all clubs agree the province or who ever should bend-alot less work for you guys for this year if we started earlier and got our base - and NO disspointment foreveryone whos booked for next week lol me included--Thanks for all you do my friend --see you soon- cheers THUNDER

    Can't say enough for all the work you guys do.The grooming alone is an epic task but that's just the icing on service provided by volunteers provide to ensure a safe and enjoyable trail system...Thanks to all. Bob

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.
