Good Morning Sledders
It snowed and is snowing!
BUT, We had a HUGE windstorm last saturday and reports are filing in that there are trees down everywhere and the trails are very hard and icy through out the entire trail system. This snow will help and will make the trails rideable again, but extreme caution is needed. Conditions before this snow were Extreme Late Spring Conditions with dirts spots exposed rocks and debris. Again the trails are very hard and icy if you are riding please use EXTREME caution.
Unfortunately, the Whitecourt Trailblazers Club has cancelled the 2016 Annual Family Snowmobile Rally due to the lack of snow throughout the season. This is the 3rd Rally in 36 years as a club, that one has been cancelled. We want everyone to have the best riding experience on our trails and believe that with the large number of snowmobiles that participate in our rallies, the trails may be compromised. In looking forward at the forecast for the next 10 days, there is very little snow fall expected in our area. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you and your family.
We have two snowmobiles to be raffled off on the Family Day weekend. One a 2016 Polaris Pro RMK 800 – 163 Raffle that will be drawn for on Saturday, February 13th at 4:30pm at the Westward Community Centre and the second one a 2016 Ski-Doo Freeride 154 Raffle which will be drawn at 4:30pm Sunday, February 14th at the Westward Community Centre.
We will be selling tickets for $5 each for the next 10 days at the Whitecourt Canadian Tire and Whitecourt IGA. This is your chance to get your tickets, before the draw on Family Day Weekend.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us this season and in the past. We look forward to hosting our Rally next year on the Family Day weekend in 2017.
