Club News and Updates

Nov 29/20: A big thank you to the Bartels (Chad, Carleen and Henlee) who delivered and donated a tank (271 Liters) of fuel to our club. This is very much appreciated by the Ramsey Bay Snowmobile Club and will be used in our two sleds for trail grooming.

Nov 23/20: Message from our president, Tyler Tollefson.

Dear Members,
As you may or may not know $110.00 of your snowmobile registration in Saskatchewan goes to the Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association for their trail fund. This money is then distributed to clubs across the province that meet certain criteria, unfortunately at the present time we do not meet a lot of this criteria (9.5’ trails, continuous groomed loops, GPS groomer, proper signage, etc.).
In an effort to access some of these funds I would like to get some numbers on how many of our members pay their yearly registration (plates, insurance) to SGI. If you could please send me an email, text or give me a call with the number of sleds you register or plan to register. I am only using this information as a tool to show the SSA that we have several of our members that register their snowmobiles and that money being distributed to other clubs.
As it stands right now it does not look very promising for us to hold any of our fundraising events and I am not sure we will be able to access any of the SSA money this season although I have started the discussion. With that being said we are going to rely heavily on the SSA snowmobile raffle ticket sales and our paid memberships so please if you haven’t done so already please buy/sell some tickets and pay your club membership.

Nov 23/20: Sledding season is now here and this is an update on trail conditions, etc. There is anywhere from 8 to 12 inches of ice on the lakes with some slush. The trails that have been checked have some wet spots and many down trees. It appears that after the fire of 2015 the trees are now falling on the trails. Because of covid, we have not scheduled any major trail clearing sessions, however everyone is urged to carry saws and clear trails as they ride with their own group. Also, the SSA have developed covid guidelines which will be posted at all of our shelters. Please follow these guidelines when using the shelters.

Oct 27/20: Welcome to the first post of the 2020//21 sledding season. We have a slight covering of snow on the ground and the lakes are starting to freeze so sledding is fast approaching. Hopefully we have a season with tons of snow and nice temperatures.

Attached is a letter from SSA regarding the use of shelters during this pandemic along with shelter guidelines and Volunteer Trail Work Best Practices.

SSA Sled Raffle

The annual SSA sled raffle ticket sales is a good source of revenue for our club. Because of covid many clubs are selling these tickets on line and we have decided to do the same. Tickets are $2 each or $40 for a book of 20 tickets. To purchase a ticket or a number of tickets please e transfer the $ amount to ramseybaysnow1@gmail.com. Include in your e transfer the number of tickets, name, address and phone no. For people who do not do e transfers ticket books will also be available from any of the executive. Click preview for a picture of the ticket.

Message from our President

Greetings Everyone, 
I hope that everyone is well doing well during these trying times. We have received some great news from the government and the SSA this week in regards to the use of our warm up shelters, trails and what procedures/guidelines are to be followed. 
The executive has decided to postpone the annual meeting due to the indoor gathering size numbers being reduced once again.  This was to be an election year and the current executive will let their names stand until a meeting can be called. If there are any current members that would like to put their names forward for a seat on the executive please let one of the current executive members know.  Also if you have any ideas or suggestions for the upcoming year please feel free to share them with a member of the executive or to the clubs email address.
