Baker River trails finally opened this past weekend and it was a roaring good time. Lower trails still need more snow, but are currently passable. Conditions quickly improve once you get to higher terrain (about 2 miles out of the clubhouse in either direction).
Our grooming team has done an incredible job, putting in a lot of hours in the last week. The Tucker continues to run this week, prepping trails for another busy weekend. The most up to date trail and grooming conditions can be found on our Facebook.
The Clubhouse & Grump’s Grill
Our amazing kitchen volunteers also need a shout out. With COVID regulations keeping the public outside of the clubhouse, Grump’s Grill went full take-out this season. Let’s just say this massive change hasn’t slowed the kitchen down one bit. Burgers, hot dogs, snacks, desserts and our weekly homemade specials are still in full swing.
Despite being stuck outside, the clubhouse is still a great pit stop on your ride. We have regularly serviced porta-potties, tables and chairs, and wood stoves outside to keep you as comfortable as possible while you rest up and enjoy your meal.
On to more trail updates. If you got out this weekend, you may have noticed some changes.
First up, a new and improved Primary 153 has reopened after several years. Our section of P153 previously ended at Cheever Trail. It now extends 4.5 miles to Corridor 5, creating a 25 mile loop within our trail system. This also adds a second route up to higher terrain, instead of all traffic taking Corridor 8.
And, the Scenic View and Diamond Turn trails in the Hog Hill/Groton area is again reopened. We lost these trails to logging for a few years, but the beautiful view is back! You’ll definitely want to head up there for a photo op on your next ride.
Also, watch our FB page for “Just Send it! – Spin and Win Pop Up Drawings” held randomly throughout this campaign. All participants in this campaign will be entered one time into our Spin and Win Wheel for Random Prize drawings.
Meetings have been a little up in the air lately with COVID, but we will hold our regularly scheduled meeting in person this month. We’ll be in the Tucker shed (next to the clubhouse, 197 N. Dorchester Road, Wentworth, NH) with chairs spaced far enough apart for proper social distancing.
Saturday, January 9, 6:30PM
BRVSC Tucker Shed
197 North Dorchester Road, Wentworth, NH
A couple important notes:
Masks are required.
Please dress accordingly. The shed is somewhat warm, but not clubhouse warm!
Let me start out by saying I hope this email finds everybody happy and healthy.
Your Board of Directors has been working hard to make sure that the business of the club has been well taken care of. The kitchen crew has been hard at work with Supper Club, the Limited Edition 2020 t-shirts are selling well and volunteers are getting trail work done on all corners of the system.
In an effort to keep the ball rolling and keep all of our members safe and healthy we will be canceling this month’s meeting.
There is lots going on so keep checking in with us from time to time for work party times and future events.
2020 has certainly been a unique year and it’s definitely had a huge impact on our planned fundraising events. As a result, we’ve had to come up with some creative ways to raise the money needed to pay for our groomer and maintain our trail system so that you can continue to #ridebakerriver.
These items will be on sale through Dec 2nd only so, like 2020, they’ll be gone soon. Don’t miss your chance to get some amazing gear and thank you for your continued support of Baker River Valley Snowmobile Club!
