What a day; very nice mild January day at +7c! The weather was fantastic and the ride was even better. We met at the FIC (Forest Interpretive Centre) which was a great staging place – Thanks to the Town of Whitecourt for letting us use the parking lot to stage. A second group of riders were waiting for us at the trail head to the south. We headed to Goodwin Lake, Summit Cabin and then home on the Manweiler, Bessie and Summit. Great day! Thanks to all the folks that came out. We met many new friends. Thanks to our VIPS – Doug Hansen from the ASA, David Geddes and Chad Stevens from AEP, Cst. Ethan Gelleny-RCMP, Paul Chauvet-Councillor from Town of Whitecourt, Shelley Mifflin from the FIC, Executive Members – Shirley Picard, Roxanne Brown, Robin Sebo, Jeff Brooks, Dave MacLeod, Cindy Brooks and Doug Hay and over 60 riders from Whitecourt, Edmonton and St. Albert areas. Thanks everyone for the great day. A big thank you to Don our snow cat operator it was a very nice ride from town and onto the system-great work! Looking forward to next year’s ride!
