It is with a heavy heart that we share with you the passing of long time club member Guy Taylor. Guy was an integral part of the club, and held many positions in it over the years, including president, trail master, and director. He oversaw the scholarship the club awards to a graduating Senior from Plymouth High School. Whether helping out with a club supper, building trails & bridges, or helping to maintain the equipment, he was a very active & dedicated club member. Guy was one of the crew who helped to build the new clubhouse. But perhaps the way most of you will remember him is as one of the best groomer operators in the state of New Hampshire. He loved being out grooming our trails and seeing how much the riders enjoyed them. He has been a recipient of the “Groomer of the Year” award from the Trails Bureau, an honor indeed. Up until last year, you would see him out in the Tucker laying down those sweet tracks we all love. Although he retired from “active club duty” he enjoyed a few rides as co-pilot this last season.

God speed, Guy, and may your family find comfort in their memories of you-you are already missed!
We have been asked by the landowner of the Clough Rd parking area to remind everyone that it is on private land. Please do not block the trail access, or the road. There is room for very few trucks/trailers there, and ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING on the town road. There is plenty of parking at the clubhouse & our extra lot down below. We are asking for your cooperation with this-thank you!
trails are still in good shape at elevation. The lower trails are thinning out. It was cold all week, so not much melting occurred-you should find things much the same as they were last weekend. The clubhouse will be open for one last day on saturday. We are still grooming most trails.
This saturday! Let’s end the season with a little fun. Registration will be from 8-10am, and all hands must be back at the clubhouse to be counted. Hands are $5/each. BBQ will start at 11am-chicken/beans/mac’n’chz/cole slaw/drink…… $10/adults $6/12 & under. Fundraisers like this one help to sustain the club in our efforts to keep our trails groomed & our equipment running smoothly, and we hope we you will be able to join us for it!
The kitchen will be open on saturday too for regular grill fare.
About an inch of snow fell overnight wednesday into thursday, and there may be several inches on saturday! Grooming is still underway on all trails. Trails will hold up better & longer if we all ride with just a little more care not to spin tracks with this warmer weather. Ever notice how brown some spots get? The sun heats up the dirt that gets mixed in with the snow, and melts it quicker than places where the snowcover is still deeper & whiter.
Where ever you ride, please do it responsibly, and keep right………………………..
Trails are in the best shape they’ve been all year! A few more inches fell this past week, and grooming continues. All area clubs are reporting good riding! This is one of those years that you could ride from border to border & see all the state has to offer.
The clubhouse is open saturday & sunday, although we will close early on sunday (grill off at 1pm) for an open house party at 2pm to honor Guy Taylor. This month he turned 89, it is his wife’s birthday, and also their anniversay. But most importantly, we’d like to thank him for all his years of dedication to the club. Guy has retired from grooming, and we miss him already! The club is providing some sandwiches & cake. Feel free to bring a dish or snack to add to the mix.
Plans are underway for a BBQ poker run on March 14th.
Tickets available at the clubhouse for a $100 gas card, winner to be drawn on March 1st. One dollar each, or 6 for $5.
