Club News and Updates

Mar 13/22:

The Ramsey Bay snowmobile club was formed in the year 2000. In 2011 or 2012 we produced a photobook with stories entitled “the first 10 years”. We are now ready to make another book “the second 10 years”. Giselle Hooey and Peter Kirychuk will be producing this book. If you have any stories or photos or both please email to pkirychuk@gmail.com. The price of the book will vary depending on the order size. The first book sold for approximately $35. To determine the price please post or email whether you may be interested in purchasing a book.
The first book is available and may still be purchased.

Mar 10/22:

This is to confirm that the 2022 Fish Derby has been cancelled. Although the COVID restrictions have now been relaxed it did not give us sufficient time to organize the event for this year. Hopefully we can reinstate the event in 2023.

Feb 23/22:

Thank you to everyone who submitted a name for the new shelter. There were over forty suggestions. In keeping with the middle of the province theme, we have chosen THE CENTRE Shelter as the official name. However we were also intrigued with a number of suggestions to name the shelter using Cree words meaning centre. After consultation with several people including an individual from the Village of Weyakwin we will also include the words Tawahik Kisiskaciwan (Cree for centre of Saskatchewan) on the sign that will be erected at the site.
The recipients of the 2022-23 Family Membership are Debra Bender-Hering, Tim Dament, Connie Kirychuk and Peter Kirychuk.
Enjoy the snow.

GREAT NEWS
We have received approval to construct a new warm-up shelter near the center of Saskatchewan. A great deal of work has been done to get us to this stage and there is a great deal more work that lies ahead. We are in the process of developing a broad plan for this project, however as part of the approval process we must NAME THE SHELTER.
To NAME THE SHELTER we are seeking your input. Please send us a name or several for the new shelter to Ramseybaysnow1@gmail.com by Noon on Tuesday February 15, 2022. (sorry for the short time period but those are the parameters that have been put on us by the SSA) The name should tie into the ‘Center of Saskatchewan’ theme. A 2022 family membership will be awarded to the innovative person whose shelter name is chosen.
So let’s NAME THE SHELTER

Feb 2/22:  Forestry operations will once again be moving into the 4 lakes area this winter within the next week. This will affect snowmobiling on the 4 lakes trail and part of the Ashley trail.

Feb 1/22:  Snow, snow and more snow! We have a lot but with the heavy snow slush is abundant on most lakes. Also with the snow, trees are continuing to fall on trails so be prepared when riding.

The regular annual rally is again cancelled for this year because of the ongoing pandemic. Hopefully next year will be back to normal.

 

Jan 17/22:  An update on snow and trail conditions at Ramsey bay. Most of the trails have been cleared somewhat but some still need work. With the recent warm temperatures and the heavy load of snow slush is now appearing on most lakes. Otherwise conditions are good and enjoy your sledding trips.

Dec 20/21:

The family fun ride scheduled for Dec 29/21 has been cancelled. This was made necessary by the ongoing covid pandemic.
Most of the major trails have been opened up including to the three shelters. The trails still need work so if riding during the holidays carry a saw and help clean them up. Snow conditions are good and only a few patches of slush on the lakes.
We wish a Merry Christmas to all and a Happy Sledding New Year.
 
 
 
 
Dec 12/21:

The snowmobiling season has arrived. A few more inches of snow last week and conditions are good. Some trails have been cleared but most still need clearing. When riding please carry a saw with you and help open these trails. There is 1 foot or more of ice on the lakes and some fish shacks are out on Weyakwin Lake. The cross country ski trails are groomed in the bay, campground and bush. Please stay off these trails with snowmobiles.

Nov 15/21:  We have snow! 5 or 6 inches so far and more coming this week. Lake is now frozen but only an inch or two of ice. It won’t be long before sledding is back for another season.

The club held the annual general meeting last Saturday. Many topics were discussed and we now have a new executive.
President…Greg Melvin
VP…Loverne Thompson
Sec/Treas…Giselle Hooey
Trail Coordinators/SSA delegates…David Street & Randy Steinhauer
Members at large…Brant Kirychuk & Chad Bartel.

Oct 13/21:

Good Evening RBSC members,

 
We are currently planning to have this year’s annual meeting on November 13, 2021 at 10:00am.  Of course Covid-19 restrictions may again lead to us having to reschedule or move to a virtual meeting.
 
2020 would have brought an end to a 2 year term for our executive. Luckily all of our executives agreed to stay on for another year throughout the pandemic but now have indicated that they no longer wish to keep their positions.
 
We will have the following positions to fill at this years meeting;
 
President – outgoing Tyler Tollefson
Vice President – outgoing Lovern Thompson
Past President – outgoing Wayne Harnett  (Tyler Tollefson will stay on to fill this roll)
Secretary/Treasure – outgoing Natasha Brandt
Trail Coordinator – outgoing Peter Kirychuk
Members at large – outgoing Chad Bartel and Brandt Kirychuk
 
We cannot emphasize enough that without an executive our Club will not be able to continue to operate. If anyone is interested in any of these positions or are looking for more information on what the job entails please feel free to reach out to anyone of our current or past executive members.
 
Sincerely,
 
The RBSC Executive
