Smart would like to thank

Wendel Erb owner of Erb Trucking for generously donating the excavator to us. Without the support we could never afford the expense of what these heavy equipment costs. So Huge Thank you.


AND Thank you to

A2B trucking Company out of Stayner. They delivered the excavator for a very reasonable price.  $0
Again these floating fees is a huge donation to our Club. Thank you





A shout out and thank you to Jason Shaw. His company PLAK-IT produced and donated this great new sign for our groomer shop, And to Kevin Hopkins who designed it at Regency Printing.

Thank you for your continued support of our club!

We had another crew out on Saturday November 27th on Trail 12 where a bridge was washed away again.
Thanks to the eight guys who moved it back in place firmed it up.
It is ready for snow now.

 

We got a great delivery last week. An excavator has been generously donated for us to use.

Hello SMART Club Members!

First off, thanks so much for selecting SMART as your personal club to support when purchasing your 2021-2022 OFSC trail passes.  We are reaching out to everyone that ticked the "yes" box which gave our club consent to contact you.  

We are happy to report that most of our trails are open and have gone yellow on the OFSC site.  Remember to check the OFSC web site for trail conditions and ride safely!

As you know, our club is small but mighty!  We have been hard at work this fall, fixing bridges, excavating trails, and clearing trails that have been hit hard with heavy rains and high winds.  We always endeavor to keep our trails in the best possible shape despite what mother nature presents us with.  To do that, we require help and equipment.  The OFSC provides us with the funds for the materials to build our bridges and the funds required to operate the large groomer that makes the trails smooth. 

As a club, we must fundraise to buy and maintain the smaller equipment required to keep our trails maintained.  We also require funds for larger expenditures such as replacing our aging snowmobiles used for trail work and for other equipment that is needed. We also need funds to buy the fuel to run the club owned snowmobiles and chainsaws.

We are asking our small membership to contribute $20 to help fund the club which is in addition to their hard work and countless hours as volunteers.  We thought we would reach out to all of you who took the time to let us know that SMART is also Your Club!  If you feel like you would like to help us out, any donation, no matter how small, helps us immensely!  

If this is something that you would like to do, **Please send an internet e-transfer to: smartsnowmobileclub@gmail.com  

No password is necessary and the funds get automatically deposited into the SMART Snowmobile Club account.  You will automatically receive an email receipt confirming that the funds were deposited into our TD Bank account.  Again, any amount is very much appreciated!!

Check out the attached newsletter for club updates and upcoming events.  Thank you to everyone who generously volunteers their time to help with the trail work and to the club members that support us with donations!  

For trail updates, photos and general information, please follow the club on

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Tom Wideman - President

Smart Snowmobile Club




We want to give our former President, Don Martin, a big thank you for all of your 40 plus years of volunteer work for our small club as well as all of District 7 and the OFSC as a whole. Your dedication to snowmobiling in Ontario will be greatly missed. Don was presented with a plaque to commemorate his years of service and a trail has been dedicated to him . We want to wish him and his wife Pam Martin all best in their new adventure in New Brunswick! We also want to thank Pam for her understanding how much time Don had to spend in his efforts for the club and with helping with our fundraising events. Cheers to you both.

Thank you as well to Al Fenton for getting the plaques made up. They are perfect.
PS. Thanks Eleanor Pettit for the great picture



November 22, 2021 NOTICE

The last two weekend have been very productive. We had a crew of 15 last weekend barge in wood for redecking two of our bridges and move one of them back in place. This weekend there was 26 in to pull up the old wood and put down the fresh. It was great to see some new young faces out! Thanks to all of you and great job.

Nov16th 2021

Good morning everyone. Those beautiful winter days of snowmobiling are just around the corner. We have completed our meetings and have a executive in place as well as a long list of volunteers for this season. We want to thank all those who have stepped up to take executive rolls and to those out going for all of the work you have done. Thank you!!
Thank you as well to all those who have added their name to our extensive list of volunteers to do the hard work ahead. We are going to strive to give all of you fantastic trails to ride in our area and help our neighbouring clubs if we can as well.

We have volunteers out today moving lumber to various bridge projects as well as checking other trails for work that needs doing. We will have trail maintenance updates as they proceed. We want to show all of you the work being done before the snow hits as well as the work that goes into opening the trails once there is snow. Here is hoping for great winter weather this season! Have a wonderful weekend everyone. TR

B105 Swift Road Reminder!!!

J
ust a reminder to all snowmobiles using Swift road.....This is an access road used jointly between Orillia Power  Generation, Parks  Canada, Hydro One, Simcoe County, Severn Township and the Ministry of Natural Resource. It is used daily by workers to access the dam and as such is cleared regularly by plow truck and tractor and blower. When you encounter their pick up trucks on the road we encourage you to wave, smile and thank them for this allowed access. If they continue to get harassed by sledders this access will be closed and we will lose an important piece of our trail system.
These are great people and some are fellow sledders so be nice! This is also used by cottagers and residents as well, some of whom volunteer for our snowmobile club so again be nice.
Please be cognizant of vehicle traffic and slow your speed down. There are speed limit signs posted! Stay to the right at all times. Thank you.









What an amazing job! All done by Volunteers. We thank each and every one of you.
