      One of the members is working at getting the facebook page up again. In the meantime we are down one groomer and trying to get caught up, the one machine is up at Black creek today. I am going up to Black creek tomorrow to pick up the TM from to Soo and bring it back to town. All of our trails have been groomed this week with the exception of the D trail to Spanish. It's not too bad until you hit the logging operation then lots of sand on road.

    Another groomer over a bridge

    Very Very old pic (10 years) maybe. This TM 125 was taken to Black creek years back.

    MOTS deadline September 6/2018

    Is there a set wage for groomer operator or is it left to the district? Last season we had different rates in the same district.

    WILL O.F.S.C. open their fat wallet

    Its usually more to do with manpower than money, Elliot Lakes groomer went down at 12;30 yesterday with a broken walking beam. A few phone calls and we had 5 guys on their way out. The track was removed, 2 idler tires removed, broken walking beam removed, then everything put back together. Groomer back running by 6;00. If it wasn't for the 5 guys and the operator stepping up the machine would be still sitting on the trail. Fortunatly we had a spare refurbished walking beam in stock and had access to another one an hour away.

    HAS ANYONE EVER DONE THIS?

    From what we hear in Elliot Lake is that the washout hasn't been fixed and there are 3 more on the Domtar road since and there are no plans by the Soo club to fix them.

    Should of Brought The Sled Instead of The Atv....

    I have been told the reason that ATV organizations can't get funding from government is that government only will deal with one entity. Until they get together they are just spinning their wheels.

    Aubrey Falls Area

    Our groomers have been out for the last 2 days, still snow left here. Aubrey being 100 k N/W should be the same.

    Elliot Lake to Wawa

    Our info from Fabris Logging is that they will not be on the Kindiogami road this winter but will be on the D trail from hwy 108 to a couple of klicks past Christie Lake and south on the BR4 to somewhere around the Christie creek bridge. They are widening the road and say they are going to leave room and snow for sleds. Time will tell.

    More On The Snow

    Elliot Lake has been running tractor groomers since 1996, Gilbert units untill 2004 when we purchased a TM130 Surtrac got our Soucy in 2010. The Soucy may be OK in flat land but is pretty much usless in hilly terrain like our. Last winter for instance to soucy was unable to groom 60% of our tails. Would we ever accept another Soucy NEVER. If the surtrac were still available would take one in a heartbeat. Would take a gilbert also. I will say that the snow conditions were strange last year, the Surtrac struggled to do some of the hills but did them, where we were turning around or towing the Soucy up hills.

    Just heard today that 2 members of our club tried to go to Wawa on Friday but turned back because of the washout by Lafing lake. We notified the Soo club but thats all I know at this time
