Kevin’s Trail Report – The Good, The Bad & yes….The Ugly
High traffic areas took a hit with several days of warm temperatures. Getting to gas will be tough with lots of dirt and mud.
Cold temperatures will return this weekend, and we may even get some snow.
Watch for trail closures such as the fields between Young’s Store and Dorman Quick Stop Gas. We will be talking with the property owner to see what they would like to do.
We are planning on grooming Saturday and Sunday nights, and will continue to groom as much as possible to keep the trails flat.
NEW – Friday – We will be grooming very late tonight. Watch for the groomers in the morning depending on what time they start they may still be out as late as noon time tomorrow.
You may want to trailer to get to better conditions quicker.
Trail conditions up north are still in decent shape.
WARNING: There have been many complaints this winter that some riders are not obeying the STOP signs at Karl’s Motor Sports, located across Route 3 from Dorman’s Quick Stop. It is private property and the landowner is asking that riders please respect the signs. We do not want to lose that trail. Thank you.
We will have another trail update on Saturday.
Have a great weekend, watch for icy conditions and ride safe.
Kevin Lassonde, PRR Grooming Coordinator.
Recap of last night’s March Monthly Meeting –
Our retired Warming Hut Hosts, Bob & Sue Gaudette were presented with a plaque in recognition of their twelve years as hosts of the Warming Hut. (They also groomed trails on Friday nights and Bob was on the BOD for many years.)
We know many of you remember them for their gracious hospitality, and good humor. Bob & Sue’s hard work and dedication to the Ridge Runners will always be greatly appreciated.
Sue has written a book about their experiences as Hut Hosts, and she has dedicated a portion of the proceeds to the Ridge Runners Scholarship Fund.
Last night Sue presented the Club with her first donation of $700 from her book sales. Wow!
Thank you Sue for your generous donation. We are sure your wonderful book will continue to sell very well.
Sue’s book can be purchased at Ramblewood Cabins and Tall Timber Lodge.
