Monday, Mar 2nd, Club #1
-12 at post in Bathurst. We got the #1 back on the snow after a very proactive fix by our crew. Floated it to Bathurst from Rogers Lake on Saturday, removed the part Saturday Night, repaired it Sunday morning, installed it Sunday afternoon, floated it back to Rogers Lake last evening and put it on the trail last night to Piston Alley and Governors and over the 503. The #2 ran from the Host last night to Nepisiguit to back to Bass River and then to East Bathurst. The #3 will be on the trail out of Nepisiguit on Trail 23 after we change a few cleats.

It looks like another great week of spring-like riding again this week. The weather so far this year has proven to be great for sledding and it appears that March is coming in with the same. March can be an up and down month weather wise, so to predict what weather we can get might be a bit of a stretch. We have only a month and a half of official sledding left here in New Brunswick and here is urging that you should be using safety in mind when doing so. We have had too many serious accidents so please remember to drive with care out on the trails.
