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:


Name:
Contact Info:
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!

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.
