Update 10 AM. Big Blue is still out on the trail. It left Rogers Lake up to Red Pine shelter, up 507 and will do the 22 and California loop. Hopefully we get our unit back from Tracadie.
Grooming has been a problem for us lately with the #1 down for repair in Tracadie and the Big Blue with a failed battery(could be due to the cold). Big blue groomed from Rogers Lake to Popple Depot late yesterday, after a battery change-out. It returned to Rogers Lake and then continued on to Nepisiguit, from there it proceeded down to highway 360 , turned and back tracked to Rogers Lake where it peaked for the night. If we get the the #2 back we will be doing the Host to Bass River, then to the Lodge. The Miramiche Club made it to the Head Pond at Nepisiguit (not sure how they made out but 52 shows groomed) yesterday and it is noted that most clubs are grooming. So more loops will be available.
We have our wing special from 5 to 8 PM tonight at the Nrpisiguit Lodge. Last week was a big success.
