Although we still have some snow here at Ramsey Bay, by rally time conditions should be ideal.Here is a list of prize donors and volunteers to date but we are still in need of more help with the rally. If you are able to volunteer some time contact Randy at 306-221-6172.
April 2/19: The snowmobile season is now over for another year but it was an excellent year with plenty of snow and many fun times. It is now time to bring out the quads and get ready for the ATV rally on May 4/19. Coordinators Randy Steinhauer and Tim Thomson have plans well under way but volunteers are still needed to help stage this event. If you can help with ticket sales, bar tending, cleanup or just help call or text 306-221-6172.
As usual we are also soliciting for prizes either from individuals or business. Click for a printable poster
March 24/19: Another successful fish derby is now history. There were 90 total entries with approximately half that number on the ice attempting to entice that ever elusive walleye. Only two fish were caught during the derby but a good time was had by all under mainly sunny skies. First prize ($405) went to Derrick Grayson who landed a 2.5 lb. pike. 2nd prize ($270) was won by Fran Blechinger with a 14 oz. walleye. Third prize ($135 ) went to Eileen Rempel on a draw.
Thanks to the Kuiack’s for coordinating this event and all other volunteers who assisted.
Our next event will be the ATV rally on May 4/19. More information on this to follow later.
Feb 25/19: Congratulations to Leo Lefaivre who won the SSA 4 sled raffle
Feb 18/19: The 19th annual RBSC snowmobile rally is now history but was a great success. There were 164 entries and about 80 riders with most of them riding the long loop. Leland Slobodian was the main prize winner taking home $1000 cash supplied by RBSC. 2nd prize went to Holly Stevens (bread maker donated by Medi – Centre Pharmacy). 3rd prize (helmet donated by Pines Service) was won by Carol Salisbury.

A message from our new Secretary/Treasurer Natasha Brandt.
Ramsay bay snowmobile club members,
I don’t want to take you away from the snow for too long! I just wanted to send out an introduction to those of you who have not met me yet. My name is Natasha Brandt and I will be our clubs Treasurer/secretary for the next two years.
I was born and raised in Saskatoon and have been coming up to the campground and now the family cabin at Weyakwin in the summer my whole life. We have been coming up to the family cabin in the winter since I was 8. I have only missed a couple of the annual snowmobile rallies. I remember the first rally like it was yesterday. My significant other and I spend a majority of winter at the lake and try to get up as much as we can in the summer.
If you have would like to renew your membership or become a member of the club please feel free to contact me via Facebook or email at Natasha.firstname.lastname@example.org
Jan 14/19: The Ramsey Bay Snowmobile Club has an annual membership fee which helps to offset the cost of maintaining our trails and shelters. The fee is $20 for a single membership and $50 for a family with young children. Our fiscal year is from April 1 to Mar 31. Memberships can be paid to anyone on the executive or at our functions. We have also made it easier for those who do online banking. Simply do an e transfer to email@example.com. Include in the comment section your name, address, phone number and membership type.
Dec 22/18: Several inches of snow in the last day or two should help with sledding conditions over the holidays.Thanks to Les Anderson we now have a sign for the Musquash shelter which was put up today. Merry Christmas and a Happy Sledding New Year from the executive of the Ramsey Bay Snowmobile Club.
Dec 18/18: Some of the executive (Tyler, Natasha, Peter ) and 6 others (Dave, Leland, Tyler, Giselle, Gerry, Chad) opened up the Moosehorn and Halfway House trails on the weekend. Although these trails are passable they still need work so if you are on them take along a saw and help clean them up.
Dec 13 2018: Rock Lake Road update: Unfortunately the Rock Lake Road has been plowed from The Elaine Lake Road all the way to the Tracy. Apparently it will be used for moving equipment from the logging block near Ashley Lake to a block on the Tracy. There will be no log hauling on the road but it will be out of commission for snowmobiles probably until mid-January.
Dec 11 2018: An introductory message from our new president, Tyler Tollefson.
Ramsey Bay Snowmobile Club Members,
I wanted to send out a quick message to our members introducing myself to those of you that I have not met. My name is Tyler Tollefson and I will be our clubs president for the next two years. My wife Erin (nee Harder) and I reside in Weyburn, Saskatchewan and have two daughters Sawyer and Burke.
I was born and raised in Weyburn and had never been north of Prince Albert until Erin and I met in 2002. I immediately fell in love with the north and Weyakwin Lake so much so that Erin and I chose it to be the setting for our wedding in 2010. We spend the majority of our winter and summer vacation time as a family at Weyakwin and look forward to doing so for many years to come!
If you have questions, concerns or ideas please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my cell 306-861-2406. (Please note I am not on Facebook so if you post on there I will not see it)
Safe and Happy Sledding!
