  2. Well that was a short tourist season. For those wonderful sled families that made it thru Kearney can you provide some feedback on how your Kearney visit was? Did you purchase food in town or bring it up? Any highlights of what you ate you would like to share? How were the hours and days available for take out working for you? What parking and gas options also did you use? We really enjoyed the cabbage rolls at the Legion last week, it was a special menu only option. Would sledders prefer a set meal like cabbage rolls only on a day ride or would you prefer an order what you want pubsty

  4. We drove down to Huntsville from Kearney yesterday. In previous years we have noticed the odd random sled trail beside the highway and very rarely in the centre greenstrip area that separates north and southbound highway traffic. Yesterday both sides of the highway had many tracks as well as pretty constant in and out of the centre area which can only be accessed by crossing Hwy 11 at the areas we noticed. Take away groomed legal safe trails and people will find a way to sled in ways that are not safe for themselves or oncoming traffic.
  5. The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit is reporting the passing of an individual who was part of the COVID-19 Community Outbreak at Skyline – Lancelot Apartments. The individual had a preliminary positive result for a COVID-19 Variant of Concern (VOC). This marks the second death in the region during the pandemic, the first in the Nipissing District. 29 people have been infected in the Lancelot Apartment outbreak. “I offer my sincere condolences to the individual’s family and friends and my thoughts are with them during this difficult time,” says Dr. Jim Chirico,
  6. You are absolutely right there, we dont agree with this lockdown either over one apt building almost an hour north of the Kearney area. Sledding is so important.
  7. The Ontario Minister of Health is returning most of Ontario to the colour coded system we had previously this coming Monday. Unfortunately because of the rapidly spreading variant in the North Bay Health area, which I believe is the Brazil strain, we are now being treated and controlled in the same health group as Toronto, Peel and York. Still severe lockdown til the 22nd and then they will look at all these 4 areas then. They have mentioned that this is in an apt in Nippissing and has spread rapidly in the past week. Ford mentioned in one of his news conferences this week that this is of
  8. Quietest little town right now. Driftwood, legion, pitstop and DJ's are all just takeout only and none seem to be open mon to wed. call ahead if you want a particular restaurant hours, they seem to get squeezed shorter as the weeks go on.
  9. I forgot to add they did ask the hubby if he had a drink today but they stood on the passenger side, didnt do any sniff test. Nice young officers, not a sled anywhere in Kearney or on the trails that we could see, only a lone woman walking her dog up the trail. They were super polite, we didnt feel harassed and we had no problem answering their questions. Not sure if they were posted there all day or just a short ride check.
  10. Just came back from picking up prescription in Huntsville, took the back way in at the Novar exit. got pulled over by a ride check on rochester lake road, 2 officers, 2 cars. first thing they asked was were we coming from southern Ontario and where were we heading too. Did we have a home residence in Kearney they asked us twice when we said we had just been to Huntsville and were coming back. Very polite, didnt ask for documentation, sent us on our way. Thinking it might have been a different experience if we had a sled trailer behind.

  12. The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit is requiring all Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs’ (OFSC) trails and trails utilizing Crown Land in the health unit district to close Thursday for the duration of the province’s stay-at-home order. Use of roads and lakes is still open for use by sledders, and ice fishing must follow the guidelines in any area for number of people in the group etc., thats a whole other area of rules.

  14. Under the Provincial Order regarding snowmobile trails being allowed under the lockdown, page 2 of the Order states that each Health Agency will have the final say if the trails are actually going to be open or closed and for how long, the same for ice rinks, and ice fishing huts. As the stay at home order encouraged people to ride in their home health district, unfortunately for most people in Southern Ontario you have no trails. The North Bay authority has bowed to pressure from the public who are understandably concerned with the huge numbers of sledders up north now. As Northern and Nea
  15. Provincial order states quite clearly that local health agencies have final say over snowmobile trail use or closures
