We have 485kms of snowmobile trails we maintain and groom on the Whitecourt trail system. Many of our members have helped out in the past and we thank you for that. We currently have a wonderful list of team members who take a section every year and help us out with the cleaning. Unfortunately, we need more help to complete our trail cleaning. Before we can push snow or groom, we have to clean debris from the trail. We ask folks to let us know if there are some fallen trees that are troublesome to remove, and we will make sure to have experienced chainsaw members or hire a crew to complete the clean. In addition, we do know there are some unsung heroes that clean throughout the year, without being on a list and we do appreciate you as well. It’s a lot of work as you are aware. We are always looking for more helpers and because we have many folks who are shift workers and want to clean the trails during the week, we have areas sectioned off with some people managing them outside the weekends, when they can help out. Please let us know if you are able to join a crew or you would like a specific trail. We clean from October to December annually.
Thank you to those folks who have already been out and completed their section. Hopefully we can avoid those high winds this coming season. Please contact one of our trail bosses if you have any questions and/or we will be sure to match you up with a group or a trail. Don Price – 780-779-3410, Doug Hays: 780-706-8005 or David MacLeod 780-706-0931. Thanks a bunch to our Trail Bosses who carry a great deal of the cleaning and work on the trails.
Thanks to all of our team members who manned the booth at the Sled Show this past weekend. It was a busy show and we were extra busy by the Beer Gardens. We also partnered with The Golden Triangle this year. Again, thanks to the folks who spread the word about the club, trails and of course the raffle we are holding. Some pretty rad sleds we would like to give away, hope you have bought your ticket. http://www.rafflebox.ca/raffle/whitecourttsc
The Whitecourt Trailblazers family would like to send our most sincere condolences to the Marcolin and Boston Pizza Whitecourt Family on the loss of their Husband, Dad, Friend and Boss. Clark has been a leader not only in his restaurant, but as a big supporter of our local sled club. Clark will be sadly missed by his many friends, patrons and the community. Our hearts and prayers are with all of you. #rememberingclark.
GENERAL MEETING: REMINDER THAT WE ARE MEETING ON WEDNESDAY, OCT 12, 2022 AT THE ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION WITH DOORS OPENING AT 7:10 AND MEETING STARTS AT 7:30PM. EVERYONE WELCOME.
Crews have started heading out scouting troubled areas on the trail system in the north and south. We are trying to identify hazards and areas that require repairs, mulching, etc. In the past couple of weeks, trails in the north and south have had some extensive work completed. A few other areas have been identified and plans are being made to make more repairs/reclamation. Thanks to Derek, Don, Jeff, Richard, Verne and Dave N.
We are looking for Adopt-A-Trail teams, if you would like to help us out, please contact either the Trail Bosses or Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s the 10th Anniversary of the Summit Cabin – October 2012 after the original shelter was burned down.
The Summit Warm Up Shelter (Sponsored by TriJet Services and GM MacRitchie Services) was mowed, raked, cabin washed out, outhouse cleaned, Trims and doors painted, Trim on the Gable has been replaced. Thanks to our helpers – Jeff Brooks, Robin Sebo, Cindy Brooks, Darrel Grenier and Troy Birtles. Thank you for your equipment donations for the clean-up: Whitecourt Service Centre, Paul Sierens and Herc Rentals.
Carson Warm Up Shelter and Gundy Warm Up Shelters will need some TLC very soon, as well as stocking wood.
Team members have stepped forward and our time slots are full. Be sure to come to the sled show, it’s always a blast. Stop in and say Hi.
We are back!!
It’s been so long since we had a General Meeting and we are looking forward to seeing all of our old sledding friends and equally excited to make new ones. Please join us for a quick meeting at 7:30pm with doors opening at 7:10pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Lounge (Downstairs). Come and hear what’s being planned for events, trail updates and sledding news. We would love to have your input with our upcoming season and for attending a General Meeting, we are giving away a $100 Fuel Card for just coming out. Enter your name every time you come to a meeting and at our last season meeting, we will make the draw – “1 tank of gas for your sled”.
