2021-2022 Membership Newsletter
Greetings from Waumbek Methna Snowmobile Club in Jefferson New Hampshire. As summer quickly turns into fall our thoughts turn to the 2021-2022 snowmobile season. Hopefully the challenges of Covid-19 will diminish as we go forward.
For any snowmobile club to be successful it takes a year round effort with many volunteers to provide great trails. Our club is fortunate to have many volunteers when a large project needs many hands, however, the club members that started our club are getting on in years and for our club to survive we need younger members to step forward. There are all kinds of ways to help. Example: bridge repair, painting, signs, trail maintenance, club board members, fund raising, equipment repair, or maybe you have a special talent that can help. Please contact the club and help keep our club going strong.
This summer club volunteers rebuilt and repaired our two drags to ready them for winter, also a grant was applied for and awarded through the Grant In Aid (GIA) program to have our Tucker Groomer maintained and repaired by TRACK Inc. of Newport VT. The GIA funding is a program run by the State of New Hampshire Bureau of Trails and is directly funded by snowmobile registrations.
Two bridges will be re-decked on Trail 12A and other trail maintenance will be performed as needed. Over the last 2 years you probably have noticed we have been upgrading our Trail Signs. This project will continue this year.
Every season volunteers need to stake and rope off the Waumbek Golf Course. PLEASE STAY ON THE MARKED TRAILS THROUGHOUT OUR WHOLE TRAIL SYSTEM (or any clubs trail system). If you venture off the marked trail on the golf course repairs are in the thousands of dollars and the TRAIL WILL BE CLOSED.
The Waumbek Methna Warming Hut (Hatch Camp) has been cleaned and prepared for the upcoming season. Firewood has been delivered and stacked in the woodshed. Last year our donation box was broken into and the cash was stolen, that money was used to defray the cost of the firewood. (Approx. $500) The club is working on some alternatives to prevent this from happening again.
The clubhouse kitchen is scheduled to be open this season….Dates and time of operation will be posted on our website and on Facebook at a later date.
