ATTENTION ATV’ERS AND SNOWMOBILERS APRIL 3, 2019
GATES ARE CLOSED ON AFM LANDS, NO RIDING UNTIL THEY ARE RE-OPENED IN THE SPRING.

Welcome to the Airline Riders Snowmobile Club website. We are located on Rte. 9 in the Beddington area, and meet every second Saturday of the month at the town office building on Rte 193 at 6 pm. Everyone is welcome. The club was started way back in 1987 and had a few slow years before getting back in action after the purchase of the snack bar by Frank and Maryann Janusz. Newer grooming equipment was acquired and several members took part in the official state groomer operator licensing program.

Snow has been a little scarce so far, but we are hoping for more as the season progresses. Our trails are not really ready yet for riding, only a few small areas had enough to ride on last week, and with the recent rain (again) they won’t be trail worthy.
There were quite a few trees down in the trails, we think we got them all out, remember to use caution going around corners where you can’t see what’s ahead, and ALWAYS remember not to drink and drive, and maintain a safe speed. Better to see the scenery than become part of it! You should always make sure someone knows where you are planning on going and your expected return time in case you run into trouble. Use caution when approaching wildlife, and DO NOT HARASS them. The wardens take a dim view of that, and it can be dangerous as well.

New members receive a map of trails put together by local clubs and the information is as up to date as they can make it. You also receive membership in the state wide MSA, Maine Snowmobile Association, they have a wealth of information on their website. AFM, the property owner for most of our trails frequently has active logging in the woods, so please watch for signs and stay on marked trails. If you come upon equipment working, remember they always have the right of way, and make sure the operator sees you before you attempt to pass by. For trail information, you can call Pete at 460-4474, Frank at 454-813 or Maryann at 546-1178. Pete's email is poorsway@gmail.com. Stop by if you can for a meeting. We’d be happy to see you.

Ride safely and be considerate of others. Be sure to dress for the weather, and bring extra essentials like warm clothing, snacks and gas. It’ s always a good idea to be prepared for that “just in case!”

Update for Airline Riders Snowmobile Club- March 13, 2019
As of this writing, all our trails have been groomed and were in good shape, riders have commented on how nice the trails were. With this warmer weather, we will not be grooming, but there should still be enough snow on the ground to ride.

Our last club meeting will be held April 13, closing out the season with a review of work done and progress made on the trails. This will be a short meeting, followed by the first meeting of the Swamp Donkeys ATV club . We will be having coffee and cookies before the meeting so come early (5:30) and join us at the Beddington town building for the 6 pm meeting.

Any questions or comments call Pete at 460-4474 or Frank and Maryann at 454-8133.

The count today of snowmobile fatalities is up to 10. The warden service attributes the majority of accidents and fatalities to speed and/or alcohol. Please slow down and enjoy the scenery, don’t become the scenery. Stay to the right, ride safely and have fun.

Also, with the heavy winds, keep an eye open for downed trees or branches. If you come across something you can’t clear on your own, let Pete or Frank know and they will get to it as soon as they can.

The MSA has information on trails state wide, a good source to check before you head out. Be sure to prepare for the weather and for unplanned events, extra clothes, water, food, and gas.

Watch your speed and be considerate of other riders. Stay to the right.  Next meeting will be in March at the Beddington town building on Rte. 193. Meetings start at 6 pm on second Saturdays in season.

The parking lot at the Forestry Station has been plowed for snowmobile parking. Please be courteous and leave room for others.

Please remember to STAY OFF THE BLUEBERRY FIELDS !! There is no faster way to lose trails than to damage land owner property. Stay on the marked or groomed trails.
