The annual meeting of the Ramsey Bay Snowmobile Club will be held Saturday Nov 11/17, 10:30 am at the community Hall. There will be updates on the new shelter, northern trails, upcoming events and other matters pertaining to the club. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend to help our club kick off a new sledding season!
Also we are pleased to inform that one of our club members, Sherry Derksen, was selected to be a core rider with the Prairie Woman on Snowmobiles (PWOS) in February for Mission 2018. (see attached letter). Sherry is planning a fundraiser here at Ramsey Bay involving a merchandise raffle and a 50/50 draw. Tickets on the raffle prizes will be sold at our annual meeting. Donations can also be made directly through the PWOS website at www.prairiewomen.ca
After many trips to Musquash,the shelter is finally complete except for one more day of finsherryishing touches. Thanks to all those who assisted in the construction and to those who donated material. We now have a beautiful building for all to use but remember to pack out what you pack in and leave the shelter clean for the next sledder. Bring on the snow but maybe not until November. Check out more photos in the Musquash shelter rebuild 2017 album.
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!
