    any body heard fron the ofsc board meeting

    I understand the changes required by MOTS Paul and do not have a problem with most of the changes. That said, the only reason that I can see for changing away from a simple numbering system for the "revised Districts" would be to appease those whose district number would have been changed to a neighbouring District's number. I am a keep it simple kind of person and just believe that a numbering system is just much easier to learn and remember than a long name. There will most certainly be costs incurred by using the longer names as they require labour to change, art work, print space costs, etc. I just think that the money spent on those costs could have been kept on the snow.

    For those sledders these name changes won't likely help.

    Not sure how anyone else feels about this change but it seems to me to be change for the sake of change. More expenses to keep the dollars off the snow and a way to confuse a system that was much simpler for people to remember the various areas. JMHO.

    Caution / Warning - North Bay truck & trailer Blitz

    I would go to a gravel pit or feed mill and get your trailer weighed and the truck for that matter. Then you know for sure. I believe that if the ticket is for lack of yellow sticker(s) they will let you drive on. If the ticket is for overweight (truck/trailer/loads weighs more than the RGW you have the truck licensed for) then the officer may require you to lighten the load(s) to the weight you have the truck licensed for.

    Hwy 11 Viewpoint

    Probably needed to draft you just to keep up to the speed you were going. I agree with 04 about the brake checking however it might be deadly with one of those buggies.

    I have only ever seen manual rear trailer fairings that are either folded in or out.

    Those tabs appear to be a molded length of tabs. That's the first I've seen like that. The ones that I have seen are individual self adhesive tabs.

    The trailer fairings (skirts) do work by reducing the wind turbulence that is created under the trailer and helping it to flow down the sides of the trailer. They talk about % of fuel saved and like most things, claims vs. reality seem quite different. Long haul fleets would probably see a 5-7% fuel savings depending on how close to the ground the skirts are fitted. The lower they are the more the savings but lower is not always better like when leaving the Husky in Dymond. LOL The trailer tail fairings that you see on the rear of the trailers also help by directing airflow and stopping turbulence. All these add-on's are constantly changing to be durable and to work in snow conditions. I haven't read or seen anything that's designed to keep the snow off the back of pickup tailgates. Maybe a heated gate???

    her campaign manager sure didn't help her case when he was on TV today. Of course he is worried that he won't be getting any more big gov't contracts for doing nothing.

    I believe this is a Wynnestorm and when she is gone in June hopefully it will be stopped.

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    Correct me if I am incorrect but isn't the 30 or 40 after the W in the type refer to the way the oil acts (weight) in hot weather conditions. Thinking that a 40 rating would act like a thicker or heavier oil. If my thinking is correct, on a snowmobile given the cold weather operation, I wonder why Yamaha would want a 30 type in one engine and a 40 type in another engine.

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    Actually the manual for my Yamaha 1049CC motor oil reads Recommended Type SAE 0W-30 Grade API Service SG type or Higher. The Mobil 1 on sale at CTC this weekend is SAE 0W-30 Grade API Service SN The SN Grade is considered obsolete now and the SN is back serviceable according to the Petroleum Quality Institute of America.The Petroleum Quality Institute of America

    Sault Ste. Marie - Area

    With the poor early winter conditions especially in the south, I believe it would be unwise for the OFSC to push early closure subject to safety issues. If the clubs see that the trails can be safely available without more grooming for a week or two with some traffic and they decide to stay open then good on them IMHO.
