  1. One of my favourite trails actually!! We try to get off A whenever we can. Less traffic and absolutely beautiful
  2. He lives in North Bay.....I am from Kearney...that is 1 hour away....I am all for supporting the small towns that got caught in the cross-fire.....if we could divorce ourselves from North Bay and only be Parry Sound I would be OK with that!
  3. Well. From where I sit and all the posts and news reports I have read....the individuals as well as small business most certainly spoke loud and clear that they didn’t want the closure. No way local business should be boycotted because of a decision they had no control over and were at the mercy of Dr Cheerios! They need all the support they can get. Some of them will never recover and will close permanently. Resorts/hotels/motels and restaurants in particular. (Which atm are mostly impacted anyway as this region is still in lockdown). I am sure everyone would hate to see places they regularly
  4. Are you suggesting that you penalize the local businesses that are struggling to survive over a closure that they disagreed with and had no control over?
  5. Absolutely! I agree that you should be able to do that. If you own a cottage I believe that you have every right to go and enjoy it, and especially check on it to make sure everything is ok. I am really referring to folks that trailer up and ride then leave. I think we need to respect the fact that this region is still in "lockdown mode" at least until March 8th, and they are only opening the trails to "local residents" - not a "free for all" opening. It is what we fought for, and finally got it as we felt it never should have been closed in the first place when all other regions were ope
  6. Another death n NB today from COVID. He will be looking for any excuse to close them up again. If you are local...great...ride those trails and Giddy up!!.....if you are coming from another area into this lockdown zone, I would suggest you find another zone to ride if you can. All he needs to see is a bunch of non local sledders rushing in and BOOM..there we will go again! At least there is lots of snow now further south, so that helps...keeping our fingers crossed that people use their heads here ...please. I have read on all sorts of pages people planning on rushing in to “rip” on the tra
  7. BREAKING NEWS!!! Just heard on Moose FM they are opening OFSC trails Monday!!! Whoohoooo. https://www.myparrysoundnow.com/61691/outdoor-recreation-to-reopen-on-monday/
  8. Just announced extended now until March 8th!!! This makes NO SENSE!! York can open and all regions surrounding NBPS is Opening. All this does is push people to other regions instead of staying local.
  9. It is! Guess it's just time to ride.......I argue it is for my mental health.
  10. Just announced: The stay-at-home order will stay in effect in Toronto, Peel Region, York Region and North Bay Parry Sound District until at least Feb. 22.
  11. Update - I was just informed that there already HAS BEEN a letter sent to Lisa MacLeod who is the Minister responsible for this on January 30th.....no reply!
  12. hmmmm.....good idea! Thanks for that! I will get him to send to them as well!
  13. Can you share the name of the place you were going so that others might be able to support them in the future?
  14. A new letter has now been sent to Hon. Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development. NO REPLIES have been received from any of our previous correspondence unfortunately. This letter was also sent to Premier Doug Ford, North Bay Nipissing News, CTV & Global as well. Vic Fedeli ltr.docx
  15. I have passed this information along to a couple of the Clubs involved in hopes that they can at least get an opinion from them. Thanks for this great information! Fingers crossed
  16. 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
  17. 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!
  18. 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
  19. 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
