  1. What do you think?

    Some one must have skipped Economics 101 . . . Supply and Demand. . . Rising prices always have an effect on demand.
  2. Almost time

    It looks like you're 1/2 way there . . .why stop now . . . Plenty of time till snow flies.
  3. Unknown if true - heard info

    Reality bites . . . They treated me A - 1 , on my last sled.
  4. Class 6 roads

    Selectman need to get some assertion! Town Property / Town Road . . neighbors actions are a hostile land use violation taking town rights. . 1st hand seen a town send in road crew and equipment and move obstructions
  5. What do you think?

    Unfortunately, I sadly have to agree with Steve . . . It's been a bad year for all to many businesses and activities . . Event closures, mandatory self quarantine, border closures, business down turns etc.. . None of it is a positive indicator for the clubs and business associated with snowmobiling. And that's optimistic . . . What will a democratic administration do to further upset the balance . . . .
  6. Sad, after a short hiatus the club resumed waterskips in 2019. Only to fade away in 2020. . .
  7. ? ? ,? Does anyone know if the. Nipmuck Trail Riders sponsor Water skips ln Stafford Springs, CT? Used to be 1st Sunday in July + August

    NHSA is to much of a PIA to be bothered with..... You can be a volunteer for your club for years doing the same job... And then they NHSA change and expect you to go to a retraining / orientation program.... Besides who needs the money.... with the new registration fee's there should be ample funding
  9. ? ? Will the Nipmunk Water Skips in Union CT, be taking place in July & Labor day ?
  10. any idea ( dates for spring & fall event) when the antique show will be in Bear Brook State Park ?
  11. No new posts since 3/21/19

    No Instagram or ...Facebook here .... can't remember the last time I could get into an HCS account after pass codes changed... Sadly, the new generation sites have decimated the dedicated sites and the Snowmobile Clubs own sites even more
  12. No new posts since 3/21/19

    Reality is that facebook and other sites have decimated the individual snowmobile sites....Just not the same as the mid / early 2000's....
  13. Their now worst that the woman who drove down SDR's trail thinking it was the road to Sportsman's Lodge back in the day.... took the groomer some time to pull that Volvo out to the road again...
  14. Balsams News - Can't be good

    Sad but reality strikes that the developers have gutted the project at the expense of putting the place back online as cheap as possible... Or just maybe they never intended to put it together, but to have a sell of of the assets piece by piece? It would still make a hefty profit.
  15. Nipmuck Water Skips.... missed the July event.... Should be coming up this Sunday ( 1st Sunday of August).... anyone going ? participating ?
  16. NHSA Bonus Program

    NHSA Volunteers .... it's a tough position to deal with...besides being a thankless endeavor , NHSA mandates retraining for volunteers....

  18. Special Meeting

    Personally, I've been thinking for years, it's time for a NORTH COUNTRY Snowmobile Association!!!! NHSA doesn't seem to be the answer !
  19. Trans Tech Performace .... do they still exist under a new name Can anyone tell me what happened to Bills business ????? Did they relocate with a new name ??? thanks cg
  20. Vintage Ski Doo Safari

    I can still remember bring one home on the 4th of July when it was new...... and the strange look from people as we drove down I91
  21. &$%*$$# MICE

    Personally, I feed them very well, that is to say that I feed them all the rat bait that they can eat! Tom Cat rat bait boxes with rat bars and the pelletized rat bait... mice seem to think the tiny granular bait is a gourmet treat... Frito Lay puts lots of these bait boxes along the perimeter of there distribution systems... Mice traps....put them perpendicular & touching the edge of the wall .... rodents like to run along the sides of the building etc... Peanut butter on the traps works great the round ones are pretty fool proof, but you only get one use per trap...but a great last line of defense in a trailer... there are multi use traps that use bait and glue strips to catch multiple mice.... Saw one odd homeade trap...it was a 5 gallon pail.... bottom with some water...the top had a beer can smeared with peanut butter with a coat hanger through the centers...making a roller for the critters to run up the stick on the side of the pail allowing them to jump on the can to get to the bait...they fall and drown in the water / antifreeze To keep them out of cracks & crevices....stuff the hole with STEEL WOOL...it's impervious to them Sadly, it's a never ending challenge to bait and trap the nuisances!
  22. Call to action!

    What information do you want us to specifically address ?
  23. Skip.... If you can hide the issue and blow enough smoke the problem just goes away !
  24. Sno-Buds closing up!

    Housing developments have been pushing out Mass snowmobile clubs since the 1980's ...... More subdivisions cutting up clubs trails will only continue to erode the clubs as we know of them....
  25. Grass Drags, Friday night

    Don't hold your breath ..... or expect an honest explanation !
