The trails are in beautiful shape... although we didn't groom the trails Thursday night, do to the temperature dropping to -20+ below zero (not counting the wind-chill). The groomers rolled on out last night and the trails held up great. They are out, as I update our page, getting them smoothed out for great riding...
Weather Alert for Saturday March 1, 2014 through Sunday March 2, 2014: The combination of clearing skies and diminishing winds will allow temperatures to plummet to well below zero again tonight across the west & central UP. Expect temperatures to fall as low as 20 to 27 below zero toward daybreak on tomorrow morning. Coldest over interior west half of up.
Please bundle up & stay warm.
Current temperature is -1 degree and feels like -14 with wind chill.
Tonight ~ Bitterly cold, mostly cloudy changing to partly cloudy around midnight. Dangerous wind chills approaching -25. Low -11F. Winds NW at 10 - 15 mph.
Sunday ~ Partly Cloudy. Sunshine & clouds mixed. Very cold, wind chill as low as -30F. High around 5F. Winds WNW at 10 - 20 mph.
Sunday night ~ Bitter cold with a few clouds from time to time. Dangerous wind chills may again approach -25F. Low of -11F with winds NNW at 10 to 15 mph.

.Also, don't forget the Seney Snowmobile Association, Veterans Snowmobile Ride scheduled for Saturday, March 8, 2014. Click here for more information. They are finalizing plans for the dinner and will need a head count this week. If you plan to join them, hurry and get signed up so they don't leave you out of the feast!
The regular meeting that was scheduled for Monday, February 24, 2013 has been canceled, I will post new meeting date as soon as possible.
Safe sledding and enjoy
Many may be wondering why the reports haven't been getting out as frequently as you are used to getting them. As many of you know, I fought breast cancer back in 2004-2005. Well, I learned back the beginning of January that it is back and I am going through chemo and radiation this time round. They say it is inoperable and incurable but can be managed with treatment. From here on out, Driver Tammy will be filling in for me when I am not able to update the reports. She will post them on our site and on our facebook page. Thank you Tammy! I also want to thank everyone that has helped me out here and with my other functions with the club. I will continue to do whatever I can for Sno-Trails and the Crazy 8's going forward, I only wish I could get out there in a groomer!!! I so miss driving! Hey, maybe one of the guys will take ME on a ride along?! Ya think?
As always, Ride Safe and Bring them Home Alive!
