GLSC Snowmobile rides update

For your info: January 24, 2024.....

The scheduled club rides are cancelled until further notice due to the current warm and rainy weather.  The trails are in rough shape and the lakes are very slushy.  Once we get another good snowfall and colder temperatures we will resume our scheduled rides.  Everyone stay safe.  Thanks, Ron.

Good to Know ...

Damaged grasslands reporting:

Some of you are concerned about the ecologically sensitive grasslands that we have around the Lake, and wish to know who to contact about areas that may need repair.

The best way is through the reporting line which a person can do by phone or online (1 877-952-7277 toll-free (or #7277 on a cellphone)/ https://forms.gov.bc.ca/industry/report-a-natural-resource-violation/

The information is passed to the assigned triaging officer and an officer will be assigned if necessary.

Thank you for being aware of how important it is to look after our natural resources!

Do you have a business, particular skill set or talent that you would like to make available to other members of the club?  We would love to know about it! We are trying to create a list of skills to enable us to use our own resources to help with club or members’ tasks. We would rather pay our own members for services instead of paying travel costs for someone to come from outside the 70 Mile House area. We feel this will help build stronger ties of community within the club, and add a greater sense of ownership to our wonderful region.  If you would like to be included in this directory, please reply to  grlksnowmobileclubinfo@gmail.com  with the following information:

Type of Goods or Services:

For example, we are looking for someone with a backhoe to help smooth out some of the trail leaving from the club house cattle gates.

A special thank you to Gerry Goosen, who so generously donated his time, effort, materials, and skill to re-install our Clubhouse information sign. As you may know, the tree that the sign was hanging on finally became unstable. It was decided to put it on posts, so there should be no issues in the future.

THANKS GERRY!

Club sponsored  rides are finished for this season. Thank-you to all the club members who came out for the rides! From our club house base we covered 2500 kms of terrain from Clinton to 100 Mile and from the Marble Mountains to the Bonaparte River.   See you next season!!

Snowmobile Safety:

  • We often get calls from people who become stuck or lost out on the trails and beyond. Keep in mind that you need to go prepared, in case it happens to you. The snowmobile club will try to assist if possible, but please note that this is not a given. It will depend upon what, where, when, and who is available to go out. We are not trained or equipped for rescue operations. Sometimes your best bet may be to call Cariboo Search and Rescue 250-395-3210 or police. Here is a minimal checklist of how you can prepare:
  • Never ride alone!
  • Leave a route plan with someone at home, and stick to it.
  • Have a collapsible snow shovel with you in case you need to dig your sled out.
  • Take your fully charged cell phone with you, and extra power for it if you can.
  • Take snacks and water
  • Take a flashlight (Not your phone).
  • Have the ability to make a fire.
  • Have an emergency heat blanket in case you are stuck overnight.
  • Remember your GPS if you have one.
  • Put the Search and Rescue and other emergency phone numbers into your phone.

Calling all residents!

The Snowmobile Club is looking to re-vitalize our club and events, and to do that, we need more new members, with a fresh outlook and innovative ideas. The Club has been an integral and central part of the community for so many years – but we recognize that while many of the traditional things we do are still a load of fun, like potluck dinners, there is plenty of room for you to get involved and help re-imagine how we do things, and bring new energy into our get-togethers that would be fun for all ages!

A big part of this will be a new leadership group going forward, and we are in need RIGHT NOW of a President, Vice-President, and a Secretary.  Please consider taking a turn in one of our senior positions!

As president, chart a new course into the future, while you and the VP guide the directors to achieve various projects, convene events, and keep things running smoothly.  We have several experienced hands still on the board who will assist you with the inner workings and structure of the club, so don’t worry about not having enough prior knowledge.  We’re in it together!

Pig Roast Pics, March 25 2023

We ate, we drank, we danced, we socialized, and we won prizes – (at least, some of us did… lol)! It was a fun and fantastic evening that was made a huge success by all who attended. Thanks to everyone for your generosity in the fund-raising portion of the night. We couldn’t keep the Club going without you! HUGE thanks to all our sponsors as well!

We’ve got big plans to re-energize our events for next year – but that doesn’t mean we don’t need to hear your ideas and input! We want to up our game and get this place ROCKING!
