Club News and Updates
The rebuilding of the Musquash shelter is scheduled to commence on Monday May 1/17 and will probably take a few days. We will trailer quads to km 34 on the Elaine Lake road and then quad in 6 km from there. The plan is to meet at the Seacan at 8:30 am on Monday or you can go directly to km 34.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone/text 1-306-960-6953 if you plan to attend or for more information.
The Ramsey Bay Snowmobile club would like to acknowledge and thank Jared McFarlane for donating his equipment and time to clear the Kid’s Lake Trail. On Thursday and Friday Jared used his mulching equipment to clear the trail to it’s original width which is at least 12 feet wide. This trail will now give a good, direct access to the new Musquash shelter which will be constructed later this month. Thanks also to Gerry Schultz, Bill Tuttroen, Jim Wiggins and Ken Prokop who assisted on Thursday and to Wayne Harnett and Peter Kirychuk who helped on both days. Once again thanks Jared for a job well done!
Once again we have a finalist in the slednsnap photo contest with the winner receiving the use of a closed in snowmobile trailer for their club. The winner is determined by the number of votes received. You can vote once per day by logging in to slednsnap.com. This year the photo was “sledding through the burnt boreal forest near Weyakwin Lake” submitted by Peter Kirychuk.
Over 80 entries competed in our 15th annual fish derby held on Saturday March 25/17. Although snowy conditions prevailed at the start of the derby, the snow tapered off and a fine day was enjoyed by all. First prize went to Fran Blechinger who brought in a 2 lb 4oz pike. Second prize was won by Kerry Bray with a 1 lb 8 oz walleye and 3rd prize went to Jesse Beardon who also got a 1 lb 8 oz walleye. The 50/50 prize was won for the second event in a row by Darlene Bartel. There were numerous other prizes given out thanks to the many individuals and business who donated prizes. Finally a big thanks to the organizers and volunteers who helped stage this event and to the ladies who prepared the delicious lasagna.
