  1. Sorry I had to go looking for before pics
  2. Eganville Sno-Drifters work on top e102 major washout between Eganville and Griffith. Thanks to trail coordinator Tom Schroeder who worked hard at getting permits and a contractor to go in and do the work. Also hats off to the M.N.R in Pembroke for fast approval of work permits.
  3. Spent this morning doing some signage improvements and putting in field markers. Out with the old tired destination signage in with the new. Expensive though I found a old steel fence post with my chainsaw and broke a chain cutting brush. First pic is the old tired signage.
  4. The Eganville Sno-Drifters is now only involved with trails. Do to insurance and other reasons the club had to split. There is now a entity called Bonnechere Cup who will run races. We are still in negotiations with a third party who will take over property and will allow the groomer to park at the same place and race group to continue races.
  5. Some more pictures of some work I have done on my own property to improve the top e102. Brushed back on average 5ft on both sides of trail
  6. As many as we can get . Our club like many are running on fumes. Average age of the six people today would be 60 years young. Average years of volunteering 25 plus years.
  7. Well it took 8 hours total over two Saturdays but a old 48 ft bridge deck was removed and a new one installed, on the Eganville Sno drifters scsr 119 trail. This thanks to the same six volunteers who seem to always show up . Thanks for bringing and donating your power nailers saws trucks trailers and for your time. Also thanks to Miller Timbermart for the great prices on lumber and for getting the materials to the site.
  8. More work getting done this weekend. A 48ft bridge on srsr trail 119 ( eganville to pembroke)had its top deck removed. A new deck will go on Saturday September 25th. Thanks to Tom our head of trails for organizing also a big thank you to Zach Plotz tree service for the truck and dump trailer at no charge to hall the old deck away and to the other three volunteers that came out .
  9. Not a group doing the work the gate install and brushing was two people. Our club like most has at best seven people that do the work. This includes executive and groomer operators, we have 120 km of trail and 80 plus Landowners . We have made a request locally for help for this weekend to strop a 48 ft bridge and redeck it. If no extra help comes that trail maybe closed as the bridge is unusable as is. Our sport will not survive if people don't come out and help.
  10. Labour Day weekend and back at it this time top E102 . Gate install and cut down cattails.
  11. The Eganville sno drifters in scsr dist six have started trail work last month with repairs to the top b101a trail ( eganville to douglas )that we had a emergency rerout late last season. This is were your permit dollars go . This was three days of excavator work.
  12. The red section of the trail is were two health units meet. Renfrew county is green. Halaburton is not . The goverment and ofsc have restriction on grooming and linking health units. Clubs dont make the rules we just have to follow them or there will be no trails to ride like north bay Perry sound health unit. That said local new reports that Barry's bay is looking at a lockdown because people are not adhering to health regulations. ( no masks)
  13. Contact snow country district 6 office I would say 95 % of brush bars in our district are hydraulic retractable. Work great we had fixed positions and had lots of damage. Since retactable no problems
  14. If anyone starts with shared trails say goodbye to snowmobiling in ontario!! I looked after our clubs trails in district 6 for 25 years and I can tell you private land will close. This is because people do not respect other people's generosity. Every year we receive calls that atvs are trespassing and doing damage to property after snowmobile season and I and my fellow volunteers have to spend hours fixing problems we should never have to. Also I am a landowner who permits a snowmobile trail to cross my land shared use no thanks I will close off my land!!!
  15. This trail is open for some reason the GPS tracks are missing from the map. I believe its was updated on the district paper map as it was g.p.s d in the summer for a grant app that was not approved . Again open all the way from griffith to eganville
