Fall is definitely here with all its spectacular color. It won’t be long now before the snow is on the ground. With that being the case, we need to get out there and clear the trails. Anyone and everyone are welcome to help. It is a fun time for families also, to get outside and enjoy the great fall weather and to see some of the town that you may not have seen before. We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00AM at the Bow Lake Grange. You don’t need a lot of tools, most times just a pair of gloves and appropriate clothing for the weather. But if you do have loppers, nippers or a chain saw, it wouldn’t hurt.
Good news!! We have extended the deadline for early registration to win the $50 gift card. Membership forms are in the mail so get them back soon. Forms must be received before December 3rd when we will be drawing the winner at Christmas in Strafford. Included with your membership form will be information on the dinner/dance and for the Ski-Doo BRP program. SKI-Doo will donate $10 to our club for each form that is completed. There is a correction from last months’ newsletter. The BRP form must be completed on-line in order to receive the donation. This is a great way for the club to receive additional funding for grooming and equipment. So get on-line and fill out the form and get those registrations back early so that your name can be entered to get that gift certificate!! You can also register at the Rochester Sports Center Open House. Located in Barrington on Rt. 125, the event is on the weekend of November 26th & 27th. Or sign up at our booth in the grange on December 3rd.
