I can't believe I'm still doing this.

Go figure! The end of March and sledding is still as good as January. The trails are still well covered, a little rough in places but good coverage. The roads are bare and dry for the most part, so it would be hard on the old sliders if you have far to go to get to the trails. Lake St. Peter is still being ridden but the stakes were removed today.

Grooming has all but stopped even with the good snow. The groomer was out last weekend but I'm not sure if it will be out this weekend or not. It's a good thing the groomers are volunteer because it they were paid the club would have been out of money long ago.

We didn't get any rain this week only snow. It looks like it is going to be a good weekend weather wise with nothing falling from the sky until Monday but who knows. I will continue to update a few more times.

It's a great day and the riders in today have all had great trips. The old boys from Haliburton Lake were in this morning. They had already been from Haliburton Lake to Madawaska when they arrived about 11:30 this morning and were heading to Baptiste Lake.

Here's hoping that you can get one more ride in before the gas money runs out. The way this winter is going the gas money will run out before the snow melts.

If you've put your sled away keep in mind the ATV Mud Run on May 3rd at the diner. $30.00 entry gets you your ride, poker hand, cash and random prizes and a steak dinner.

If this is the end of the line for you thanks for a great winter. I appreciate all the support, good wishes and kind words you brought with you. It was nice to see so many old faces and meet so many new. There were a lot of fun people through here this winter.

I hope we see you next year. Remember-The abuse is always free!
