A BIG THANK YOU to Tyler Mullin Shelter Director for Club #1
Tyler’s Message to the club. "Gents, I attached a photo of the sign I'm having made for red brook shelter. I am pretty proud of the build and I think this sign does the sponsors justice. The building will be hauled to site in the coming weeks. A few final touches and some site prep and we will be in business. I have also lined up wood for the new shelter, and placed the order with Joel hache for the new windows I mentioned previously for 9 mile today".
       Thanks to all who donated to the build of Red Brook Shelter: Fornebu Lumber, Eddy Building Supplies, Juntion Lumber, Frenette Windows and Doors, Three Step Roofing, Boucher Machining, Branch Contracting, Chaleur Hydraulic, Power Precision, Maritime Carwash, Trevalli, Wilson’s, Hatheway Auto Group, Bradley Jenks Excavation, East Coast Insulation, Discovery Drill Manufacturing, and Bathurst Towing, along with countless volunteers.

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.
