Please let us know what you can bring to help out with food items such as salads and desserts, and assisting in the serving, set up etc.

There are plans underway for live music again this year. We will be donating all proceeds to the camp for “camperships” to help out local folks with fees.

This raffle will run until Oct. 12, 2017 and all monies will go to the campership fund. We  should be able to have the tickets ready for sale at club meetings and after the atv b-b-q.

Trails are in good shape with a little brushing needed and some minor bridge repair. Please call Pete -667-2052 or Frank-638-2301 if you can help out somewhere. David Bridges is still out of commission due to last year’s injury, he is sorely missed!

MysteryMystery!
Several club members rode from Molasses Pond to the Diner by a round-a-bout way on the 15th and had a great day. The weather was perfect, our trails were well marked. We did manage to find some very rough patches, but survived just fine. A lot of wild life was out and about, we observed a bald eagle, a hawk, 3 partridges (each in a different location), a mama deer, a baby moose and 2 turtles! We took a picture of the most mysterious sight on our voyage. can you tell what it is?

SEPTEMBER 12, 2016
THE BRIDGE IS NOW OPEN !!

ATV Entering BridgeThis update is about the removal, replacement and rebuilding of what is an Airline Riders Snowmobile bridge on our club trail in Deblois, which also serves as a bridge for atvs on the trail numbered #515 (Acadia club). Our Airline Snackbar Snowmobile and Airline Snackbar ATV clubs worked together on the project as it needed to be widened and repaired.

Work has been going on all summer long, starting with improving the trail approaching the bridge on both sides to accommodate the trucks and equipment used to bring in the 80 foot steel beams, lumber, welders, etc. The bridge crew was there almost every weekend for a couple of months. It was a huge project. We figure the cost of the bridge in materials and hauling fees alone is in the $10,000 range, and that does not include the labor as it was all done by volunteers from the Airline Snackbar Snowmobile Club and the Airline Snackbar ATV Club.

ATV on New BridgeWe thank Ken Jordan and family for their help moving the steel, and Peter Poors, Mike and Marlene Sullivan, Steve Catlin, Frank Janusz, Dave and Kenny for approximately 200 hours of work. I must also mention that the day before the bridge was completed, six riders from the Newport area happened along and jumped right in to help haul lumber before they turned around and headed back! If I have forgotten anyone, let me know and I’ll fix the write-up.

The gates are up and will have a 64 inch wide opening. This should lead to greater access for side-by-side riders while still barring trucks and prohibited vehicles from using the bridge and possibly damaging it.

If you have any comments or questions please contact us at 638-2301(the Diner) or Sharon at 667-2052. Thank you for your patience while construction was underway. Have fun and ride safely.
