  • FRIENDLY REMINDER: As most of you are aware, we are all volunteers on the board and officer positions for the club, so we do the club business when we can fit it into our busy schedules. Which means your membership may take 6-8 weeks to process from the date we receive it – not the date you sent it. Right now, our people are checking the mail every 1-2 weeks, and it may take another 1-2 weeks to get to the treasurer and the secretary, and then another 1-2 weeks for them to do what they need to do. And there’s a bit of leeway there, which may take it to 8 weeks. We apologize for any delays or uncertainties this may cause, but be assured that we will get your memberships processed once we receive them! And for anyone who is trying to get theirs in before December 10th for the early bird raffle, no worries, we’ll make sure your names gets put in the mix for the raffle if you get your form and payment to us by the 10th! Thanks, as always, for your patience and understanding!
  • EARLY BIRD RAFFLE: Club members, remember to get your membership forms and fees to us before December 10th to be included in our raffle for a $200 gift certificate to one of our participating Business Members – it’s your choice of which business, while the gift certificate is on us!

Please use the NORTH MEADOW TRAIL that starts behind the Burnin’ Barrel, goes through the field and crosses Route 6 approximately 100 yards down the road from the Barrel. Stay to the right of the “RED BARN,” following the marked trail, which will bring you out across the road from the clubhouse on Route 6. 

REASON: South Rail Bed Permanent Closure due to the Ongoing Trail Flooding Issue.

Back in 2017, our club did a major rebuild on the old bridge just east of Pine Creek Outfitters on the South Rail Bed. The new “Dave Hassler Memorial Bridge” served everyone well with water flowing freely under the bridge and out to Pine Creek. Over the last several years, conditions have worsened to the point that water is no longer flowing under the bridge at all. We’ve tried addressing the problem but have not been successful. Unfortunately, this has caused the west lagoon at the Pine Creek Outfitters access road to stay high and is constantly FLOODING over 100 yards of the rail bed in that low-lying area, which has forced us to make the decision for a new route.

A big shout out to Ed Holden, who graciously donated 44 tons of 2RC stone toward the North Meadow Trail improvement project. Thanks very much, Ed!

The only section of the South Rail Bed that will be Permanently Closed is from the Pine Creek Outfitters access road to the PAGCSC clubhouse. Sledders coming from the west (McCarthy Trail/Log Cabin Inn) to the clubhouse on the South Rail Bed will not be affected until they reach the clubhouse. AT THE CLUBHOUSE, THE SOUTH RAIL BED WILL BE CLOSED, and you’ll be directed to the North Meadow Trail that is directly across Route 6 from the clubhouse, coming out by the “RED BARN” just down the road from the Burnin’ Barrel and the Colton Road. 

  • MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION FORM MAILINGS: For those club members that we have email addresses for, the 2022-2023 form was emailed to you on September 13 along with an enlarged map of the North Meadow Trail, and a survey we’d like our members to fill out and return to us. If you did not receive the email, the registration form and map/survey will be mailed to you through the USPS, so be on the lookout for that in the next week or so. And you can also download the registration from this website. Happy and safe snowmobiling, everyone!
  • TRAIL CLEANUP: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, is the day we’ll be doing our annual trail cleanup. As we have reported previously, the trail behind our clubhouse that runs toward Burnin’ Barrel is permanently closed. At the clubhouse, we will be directing snowmobiles coming from/going to the west on that trail across Route 6 to the North/North Meadow Trail. That North/North Meadow Trail is what we’ll be working on for cleanup day, along with the usual cleanup to the west of the clubhouse. While the North Trail is an existing one, it’s not been much used, so there’s a lot of work to be done it. —- VOLUNTEERS: Meet us at 7 am at the clubhouse and we’ll carpool over to Baxter’s Bakery for breakfast on us, then head back to the clubhouse and the trail. Bring tools and saws, weed whackers if you got ’em, and anything else you think we might need to clear this trail. YOUR HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
  • Notice: The May board meeting has been moved up a week to the 7th because of the Upper Pine Creek Trout Tournament. The meeting will be at 6 PM at the clubhouse and all club members are invited to attend, most especially if you are planning on volunteering to help us during the tournament.

  • Notice: The South railbed is closed because icebergs are all over the property owner’s yard and over the trail from Pine Creek’s eruption. Ice is blocking both access points through the yard. Please use the North Route/North Meadow Trail for the remainder of the season to our clubhouse if riding from Colton Road.
