Near North Snowdrifters
Box 262,
Sundridge, ON,


At our recent Snowdrifter AGM the club
approved Pearl Ivens as our new Club President,
succeeding Neil Gutjahr who did not run for another term.

Pearl has been a club member for 5 yrs and has represented the
Snowdrifters at District Meetings as a member of the Trails Committee.

Neil will continue with new trail development and the production of the
trail guide and billboards. All club members would like to
thank Neil for his many years of service to the club and community.

We had a dozen volunteers including Snowdrifter Club members and
our Deputy Mayor and his son. Thanks to all.

We have one of the best volunteer seasons we've had in a long time.
These folks worked very hard to open trails and
extend and improve your riding experience in this area.

Our Xmas potluck was a hit, over 20 volunteers in attendance,
all anxious to ride.

Our latest Driver Training course went over big!
More entries than we expected with people travelling from all over to attend.
We are thrilled to be able to educate and promote snowmobiling with young people.
We will announce any new courses here.

Our volunteers have completed a safety course for
chainsaw brushing.
Check our photos page for pics.

Our training was provided by
Bernie Stockmans of WSN Forestry Health and Safety.

We would also like to thank
Tim Bryson of Tim Brysons Forestry Services
for providing the location and timber for the practise and cutting technique.

The Snowdrifters have been around a while and are always
looking to the future of the sport in our area.
We are making attempts to minimize lake and road running
in an effort to extend the riding season.

Our club strives to maintain solid relationships with landowners,
who are critical for the future of the sport, and have even
managed to open new local routes throughout our area.

Read about landowners and the OFSC and OFATV agreement

Our trail system is based on landowners allowing us passage on their property.

We would like to honour
Brian Bradley, our former club treasurer,
who passed away while out riding.

George Cottrell, a local heavy equipment owner/operator,
responsible for a significant amount of
Snowdrifter trail clearing, is no longer with us.

The Near North Snowdrifters will miss him.
