To club member Craig Buchanan - For getting the necessary paperwork to VAST for approval. Raymond Rodrigue and Matt Tetreault - For all your support in this entire process. It was a team effort and I personally appreciate all the help. I’d like to thank all of our club volunteers and all the volunteers in all the clubs for all your tireless efforts you put forward to ensuring we have the best trail system we possibly can. I’m really hoping we have a winter with cold weather and a lot of snow so we can get out there and enjoy all of our hard work. Happy trails to all! Steve Dalpe, Vice President North Country Mountaineers Corridor 14 trail reroute on Coventry Station Road in Coventry. Orleans Snowstormers We are rapidly approaching the start of another snowmobile season. By the time you read this, hopefully the ground will be white. We have been busy preparing our trail for the upcoming season. We have a couple of small trail changes on our system. The OS-10 junction has moved along with a section of VAST Corridor 16 which will follow the edge of a farmer’s field. This is to help reduce the winter kill associated with the snowmobile trail. Please stay on the marked trail, since we don’t want to lose the use of this trail. The location of OS 12 has also moved and a relocation of VAST Corridor 58, west of this junction to the bridge across the Barton River in Orleans. There is a section of “roller coaster” hills in one field, so pay attention to all slow and blind hill signs. Most importantly, stay on your side of the trail. As always, please respect our landowners by staying on the marked trails and obey all signs. Remember that we provide trash barrels at our junctions, please use these and don’t just throw it anywhere.
