What a fantastic weekend it was! Was great to see all the familiar faces & the new ones too! It seemed all enjoyed the new way to do the poker run, and the bbq was very successful. The warm temps alway make for a nice day, but it doesn’t help the base on the trails. Lots of melting over the weekend, but still good riding to be had here!
Poker run winners:
apologies if names are spelled incorrectly, some were hard to make out
1st Pam Gellette 3 aces Common man GC
2nd Charlie Williams 3 10′s Shawnee’s GC
Joe Regier 3 7′s Rossi’s GC
our 50/50 winner was Deb Brown from Franklin for $19
congratulations to all! And special thanks to club members Chris Fowler & Deb Fowler for running the registration table, and to their husbands Don & Gary for taking them around the run later & removing all the signs-great teamwork! Mike & Darron were a help before the ladies arrived-thank you!
The vintage ride had about 17 old sleds start out, and 14 come back on their own power! Always a fun time is had.
Thanks to Helen & Rowell Ray, Pat Dupuis, and Evie-our kitchen crew. On the grooming team we have Trailmaster Bob, Guy Taylor, Rowell Ray, Vic Henry, and Peter Galpin-they have been doing a superb job this year!

thanks again for visiting Baker River Valley-see you next time!
We haven’t received any new snow and it’s been COLD!! The trails are hard & you’ll also find some ice in corners & on hills. Saturday we may see a high in the 40′s, so that will change things for sure! We are grooming all our trails as best we can, but without new snow we can only do so much. Still you should find them to be quite good! There is talk of a possible snow storm for next week, so we’ll have to wait & see what it brings.
With warmer temps on saturday it will be a great day for the poker run & BBQ! Registrations will start at 8am and hands are $5/each. The bbq will run from 11-3, and is $10 for adults & $6 for kids. Chicken, baked beans, cole slaw, mac n cheese, cake ,and a drink will round out the menu. We have a new system in place for the poker run that should work well. The clubhouse will be open for regular menu items too at 8am. We turn off the grill at 3pm.
Sunday we are hosting a vintage ride. Participants should be ready to leave the clubhouse by 9am. We have a permit to allow anyone with an antique or vintage non rigistered sled to join us for the ride. The ride is usually 25-30 miles and we return to the clubhouse when we are done. If you’d like more info you can call Evie at 786-2770.
The clubhouse grill will not be on until after the vintage ride-should be around noon or so. But it will be open to come in for coffee or cold drinks, snacks, and some crock pot fare.
hope to see you here for a fun filled weekend!
It’s COLD!! The good news is we didn’t loose any snow from the trails, but the are pretty hard. You may find some ice as well as a few bare spots in some low lying areas. Other than that, they should be pretty much the same as they were last week. Call 603-786-2388 for Bob’s current message.
The clubhouse will be open saturday & Sunday from 8-3.
We are planning a poker run & BBQ for next saturday. Registration for poker hands starts at 8am. BBQ will start at 11 & go til 3 or we run out. Come join the fun & help support the club!
trails are holding up well even with the rain on friday & warm temps. One more day of warmth then back cold again-we are grooming early & late when cold enough. Pisten Bully has left a machine with us to try out on our trails…………….time’s almost up with it. Rowell has been out with it a few times. Vic has too, and took it out tonight to give it a run on the powerlines & primary 153 in Groton. We’ll see how he made out with it tomorrow as he is still out now at 11:30pm.
The clubhouse will be open tomorrow from 8am-3pm. Stop in for a burger on your way through.
Would like to have a few more volunteers in the kitchen, especially for sundays. Stop in or call Evie at 786-2770. We’d like to be able to keep the clubhouse open both weekend days for all to enjoy!
Plans are in the works for a poker run & BBQ for march 8th-that is also our monthly meeting night with pot luck at 6pm.

Here in central NH we received 12+ inches of new snow! All clubs are our out working the trails to get them in good shape. This snow was pretty light, so at BRVSC we took the tractor out to pack trails down. We will now start grooming……………….all this snow should fill in the holes & moguls! There is ice under it all, and some hills may be tough to get over. Primary 153 up the steep hill past the hirse farm is one of those areas. The power lines have not been groomed yet, but people are riding them. Wide open areas have drifts from the winds. It will take another day or so to get to everything & make it smooth, so please be patient with our volunteer groomer operators. The good news is we are riding!!!
We are still in need of a few more more grill cooks in oerder to keep the clubhouse open for lunch all weekend. Please call Evie if you can lend a hand at 786-2770. We are sorry to say that the clubhouse will not be open sunday, 2/16.
Bob will have a new detailed message on trail conditions on the snowphone 603-786-2388
Many kids are on school vacation this week & are out enjoying the trails with their families-please be courteous out there & keep right, but most of all have fun!
