Well we have not been sitting idle through the big freeze we have had for the past week and a half. We have been busy building hundreds of signs so we can continue trail marking now that it is warming up. The groomer started grooming the marked trails and all marked trails should be groomed by end of day Friday. We will be marking & grooming trail 302G to 339B intersection on Thursday 18Feb21. Friday, 19Feb21 we will be marking trail 302C on Echo Lake and hopefully have Pasqua Lake and Echo Lake groomed Friday night. Thanks for your patience while we continue the marking of 297KM of trails. If any of you are interested in assisting, don’t be shy, call or email us and let us know. We will be concentrating on trail 302B from Mission Lake to the end of Katepwa Lake next week.

Marked trail 302A from Roosters to Fort Qu’Appelle. Trail conditions are not great. The groomed trails are very hard packed and icy and the lakes are rock hard on the north side. We need a good dump of snow.
Panned trail 302D from junction of 302C to Junction of 302B and 302B from junction of 302D to Dysart junction of 302C.
**** While marking trails we are finding our shelters are being use a lot, but, SOME people are leaving them in a big mess. It’s not like the few volunteers we have aren’t busy enough trying to get trails setup for the plated sled riders and more importantly our club members, that we have spare time to cleanup after these people. We want to remind those leaving the messes in our shelters, these shelters are not your home and we, volunteers, are not your parents who cleanup after you. Please be responsible adults and keep our shelters clean. If you pack it in then please pack it out. To those of you that are doing your part to keep our shelters clean, we thank you! ******
