  3. I just sent an email to the editor at the North Bay newspaper that ran our letter last week. Anybody wanting to ask the same or write their own letters or emails can contact him at bcooper@metrolandnorthmedia.com Good morning Brent It would appear that Dr. Chirico is extending the lockdown for “Outdoor Recreation”, again without facts to back this it up. The question is....Why is cross country skiing an allowed activity well all others are not? Is it because he, or a friend or Family member are active members of a Cross Country Ski Club perhaps? I

  4. Interesting how he says “outdoor recreation”, however his cross country skiing isn’t included? Hmmmmm....I call BS Doctor! I am sure all his cross country skiing buddies are enjoying the groomed OFSC trails! If you are closing “Outdoor Recreation” then this too should be included you entitled Asshat!

  5. I would be calling this lawyer asap. He managed to win and get the gym open. Show the hyprocsy. Also, as a trail permit purchaser - you are part of a "CLUB" - a private club - frig this guy and ride your trails. See him in court. https://www.kitchenertoday.com/local-news/kitchener-gym-launches-a-charter-challenge-against-ontarios-stay-at-home-order-3285247

  6. K...so this is interesting! Just called the Nordic Ski Club and asked about their COVID precautions. First, the Clubhouse is closed, however the WASHROOMS are not! Hmmmmm...ok?? Is someone there wiping down the toilets etc every single use? I asked about sanitization of rental equipment ....boots are sanitized but the skis are not. Hmmmm....don’t people handle the skis? What a friggin hypocrite this dude is! I am getting madder by the second!

  8. Probably before COVID , nobody in the area had heard of him. Now that he's @ the forefront of 'fighting the pandemic' he's enjoying his 15 minutes in the spotlight... Yes, this sounds very much like the azzhats vacationing when we're supposed to stay home. Outdoors is outdoors. And like Giddy Up said, how can the facilities be open if nobody is cleaning them?

  9. Great Work Mrs. GIDDY UP. One more week, and they better open those trails. Just sickening the damage thats being done. And to learn hes a member of the ski club. Kinda reminds you of all the government officials vacationing, while preaching eveyone stay home. Funny how this all comes to light. I feel for you guys and gals in the areas affected by the closure. Nuts, absolutely nuts..

  10. More information you can either use or ignore....lol I just called the North Bay Health Unit. Spoke to a person that answered phone and asked why Nordic Ski Club allowed to be open? She transferred me to COVID call line. That lady didn't have an answer - however - I spoke with her for quite some time. The bottom line is.....apparently they take ALL complaints and put them on a "spreadsheet" which is where my complaint apparently is going. This "spreadsheet" is reviewed on a regular basis. So....I asked how many complaints are on the "spreadsheet" related to the snowmobile t

  11. The west side of the hwy tunnel in hgr territory was full of water with a nasty frozen trench right up to the running boards at the exit on sunday. Hopefully its fixed up by now. Got my new sled all dirty! Port Sydney got hammered with snow, this was on Clearwater lake on sunday. 2 feet of fresh yum yums!

  12. Honestly, I think given the situation, If that is what it would take for locals to ride trails in their backyard, I think it’s a good idea or work around. I’m sure they could also do some trail work at the same time...win win for all really....or at least stick it to that peebrain doctor.

  13. Nice run last Friday. Plenty of fresh snow falling, lots on the trails. 114 miles round trip. Trails were very good. Groomer went by and stopped as we were having lunch. Lunch stop on intersection of C111D and 56. Great place with a nice washroom. Roasted hot dogs, some other snacks, coffee, etc. Went across Wahnapetei Lake on trail 71 on the way there... that wasn't fun with the wind, slush spots and small pressure crack.. needless to say we took C rail bed back from Capreol. Was a great day, with great people.

  15. A fellow I ride with has a rene 900T with the stock track plus picks. He doesn't like loading or unloading the sled. I unloaded it in sport mode from another friends trailer that has a wood floor. Woops!!! Note to self: Always use econ mode when loading/unloading Bills sled.

  17. We rode the d101 in that area on saturday. Dorset up to the ASC hut, still scraping the odd rock, ASC hut to dwight, still needed snow too. In all honesty it was still good though, even in a good snow year you're still scraping the odd rock in that area. Will be better now that the new snow is packed. Hoping to get north of kawagama this weekend to ride the 65 66 67 trails.

  22. @Turbo Doo Not hard to understand in the real world but over in 705 Snowmobiles it's a mind numbing moment when you read the almost weekly posts as to why is the A103 red?

  25. I have read that this is the cross country ski club that he belongs to. However, even if that is a rumour, why are they allowed to remain open? Letters and phone calls should be made at the very least! North Bay Nordic Ski Club, 630 Northshore Rd, North Bay, ON. 705-495-0332. Website northbaynordic.ca

  27. correct B106E from north of LSP to Whitney has not been groomed through the closure - (changing health units). With the change in restrictions it should be open in the next couple days, club was working on the trail today. MLSS will also be able to connect on the 175 to Madawaska and E109 east towards Combermere. MLSS facebook has a post regarding this. ITG will update accordingly.

  32. Yes they did. Have one on a 2004 600 Classic. Key switch loccation puts the premium light on the dash. I tried it with premium once and didn't see much difference.

  34. Hence my comment about opening up, riding, and going against this stupid order. He may have the power to implement it, but there has to be sound reason and justification - none of which exists outside of his own twisted vision. It might be time his bs be taken in front of a judge, I think clubs should keep grooming, people should keep riding and let the ticket writing happen with every single one of them go into the already back logged courts for dispute. It's over the top and people should not be listening and obeying like dogs looking for some sort of a treat.

  35. Bigfish rode up to the Ptbo staging area to meet me. I was surprised to see him sitting on his sled in the lot. "It's faster to find here than drive!" Rode east almost to the reptile zoo west of Norwood. He had been thru there on Sat' & said the snow was thin towards Havelock. Rode back down to the E208 & then east to the 569S to get to Rice Lake. Lake conditions were good to the Hiawatha trailhead. (Be aware that the FN is under lockdown, so fuel is not available) He rode home from there. I continued up 511 thru Mathers Corners to the railbed. I rode under the 115 to the W

  41. Sometime during the history of this forum, it was suggested that a special section for women be created complete with separate passwords etc. This idea was immediately poo poohed by Slow Touring Guy as being missogji.. missognistyk...myssoginistic....bad for women...arguing that as equal members of society they should be subject to the same amount of abuse as those male members. (no pun intended) Recent political polls suggest that Erin O'Toole, federal Conservative leader, is not liked by women. You are a woman. Please fix this. Or we are stuck with Trudeau again. Thanks.
