Even though the snow conditions are still great, the 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.   

The Pig Roast Event is now sold out. Thanks everyone!

Snowmobile Safety:

  • We often get calls from people who became 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. Your best bet may be to call Cariboo Search and Rescue 250-395-3210. Here is a minimal checklist of how you can prepare:
  • Leave a route plan with someone at home and stick to it.
  • Don't ride alone!
  • 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.

Changes to the Guest Policy

In the past, members were allowed to bring guests to club functions, but the same guests only twice each. The intention was that guests would have an opportunity to learn what the snowmobile club is all about, and perhaps decide to become members. For a number of different reasons, this has not worked out as planned. Going forward, as of March 2023, members can now bring any number of guests (within reason) to club potluck parties, at a guest fee of $15.00 per person. At special dinners where the Club prepares the entire meal, (such as the Pig Roast), there will be a TBA fee for everyone, members and guests alike. Effective March 2023.

Halloween Potluck

Welcome back, members and their guests, to one of the first clubhouse functions in two years!! On October 29th, the conveners of the night: Rita, Kris, and Diane, would like to invite you to a Hallowe’en Potluck. Costumes and/or a decorated Covid mask are optional, but there is a prize! Games are planned and are optional, but there are prizes! A “guess the count “is optional, but there is a prize!  A 50/50 ticket fundraiser will be happening with tickets at 3 for $5 or 15 for $10. As per usual it is a BYOB and Potluck event. On the Potluck side, anything goes. Happy Hour is at 5 and dinner is about 6. 

For those who wish to help before and after, we are setting up on the 26th at 10 a.m. and truly appreciate any clean up help on the yet to be determined day.

We hope to see you there,

Rita, Kris, and Diane
