Jefferson SnoPackers Plan For Coming Winter Season

The Jefferson SnoPackers Snowmobile Club Board of Directors met last week to plan events for the upcoming snowmobiling season.

The Landowner Appreciation Dinner will be held at the Broken Acre Family Retreat on Broken Acre Farm on the Valley Road in Jefferson on Sept. 15.

Every year the club hosts this event and serves a lobster dinner to landowners who allow club trails to cross their land.

While the club works hard to maintain an accurate list of participating landowners, it is quite possible that some have been missed or have changed due to land sales.

The board asks any Jefferson landowner who has club trails crossing their land who has not received an invitation to contact the club at jeffersonsnopackers@gmail.com or by sending a note to Jefferson SnoPackers, PO Box 335, Jefferson.

The board has also decided to hold the annual snowmobile drag races on Oct. 19 at Broken Acre Farm. The grass drags were held for the first time last year after several years of cancelled racing events on Damariscotta Lake due to poor ice conditions.

The races last year were well attended given it was the first time for such an event in Jefferson. Improvements have been made to the race track and the club is looking forward to hosting this year's races.

More details on the races can be found on the club's web site, http://www.snopackers.com, and their Facebook page (search for SnoPackers).

Finally, the board reminds snowmobilers that the club meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Damariscotta Lake Watershed Association office on the lake shore across the street from the Damariscotta Lake Farm restaurant. All are invited to attend.

The board notes that club membership has declined over the past several years. In particular, the number of active members has dropped sharply. Unless there is an increase in membership, and especially in participating members, the trail cleanup activity will be limited to only a few major trails.

This means riders will encounter blow downs, fallen branches and un-groomed trails this winter. There are many snow-mobilers in Jefferson as evidenced by the number of registered sleds. If everyone would donate a half day of their time to help clean up the trails, the trail system would be in excellent shape this winter.

The club meets at 8 a.m. on Sundays at All Seasons Automotive starting in November and disperses from there to work on the trails for half a day. The board asks for everyone's help in keeping the trail system operating this year. The newly released Farmer's Almanac calls for a cold and snowy winter in New England.
