THE POTTER COUNTY ASSOCIATION IS IN QUESTION OF SURVIVAL!!
Our club was established in 1969, only 10 miles of trails existed. Over almost 50 years the trail system has grown to 59 miles of trails, these trails are cleared, signed and insured by our club. Hours of labor, fuel and thousands of dollars for liability insurance is covered by the trail fund ticket donations and other fundraisers that we are able to pull together. However over the years there have been many changes, especially the last several years with little to no snow. Membership has declined along with the support of the local businesses .We have found ourselves in need of much more support! We realize everyone is very busy and with kids in sports and jobs and life but we all have stuff going on .We have found our self in need of much more support!
The president and handful of board members are asking for any and all help this season. It is very difficult for us to manage everything.
Clubhouse and trail upkeep, fundraisers-fish fry’s (in February) races, breakfast and lunch on weekends when there is ride able snow.
Due to serious washouts that occurred this spring and summer, some of the trails are completely impassable .The expenses for equipment rental and the man power hours of help are needed.
We reached out to the following local merchants and they have stepped up to help with donations, lauelwood Howards Inc, Fezz dinner and Steak House and Millstream, but man power is still needed to help with the rest of the trail system, 4 or 5 ppl isn’t enough, we need at least 10 more helping hands and donations to clear and sign a major part of the trail season. So mark your calendars for Sunday November 18th and December 2nd to help YOUR club get YOUR trails ready for this riding season.
If this doesn’t happen there will be parts of the Potter County Trail System that will not be used this winter and not sure going forward.
Please step up and don’t let the history of the Potter County Snowmobile Club diminish. We want to keep this beautiful place going way to many years of hard work and dedication should not go to waste and remember join clubs so you have a place to ride in the future.. Remember 4 or 5 ppl cannot keep the snowmobile clubs going GET INVOLVED JOIN YOUR CLUB leading a helping hand so you have trails to ride in the future and to make family memories.
