Monday, Oct 30th, 2023, Club #1
First snowfall in the Bathurst area today. It will not amount to much, but this is just a reminder that Trail Permits are on sale at SNB. For those people from NS and PEI we made arrangements to have permits available to you in Dartmouth and Charletown. We will soon have our newsletter emailed or mailed in the coming weeks to all of last years members. You can check out our “permit” page on our website at https://www.bathursttrails.com/en/permits for more details on permit costs and easy access to our own application. Remember Club #1 when signing up for your permit. The “Early Bird permit” will allow you significant savings and if you plan on making a visit north to NB this permit will be cheaper with the early bird than the day permits in some cases.
On another note, with the material and epoxy donated from our local Canadian Tire in Bathurst, and the time and efforts of Marc Poirier and 3 Step Construction, Nine Mile Shelter now has a beautiful epoxy coated floor. Our “showpiece” shelter is now even better. Thank you to all involved and another special thanks to all of our sponsors. Without volunteers and sponsors we wouldn’t have what we have today for a trail system. Please respect our buildings and the recognition of our volunteers and sponsors.
As all know, we have had a very wet Fall season and this has played havoc with some of the work that is being carried out on our trail system. Let’s hope this weather can hold off a little. Below are pics of the new Nine Mile Shelter floor. It has an epoxy finish with a sand grit applied.
