Green Lake resident Rob Williams bought this Bombardier Bombi recently and then loaned it

On Jan. 11, Rob Williams of Green Lake, who owns Truck West Auto Body in Langley, bought a Bombardier Bombi.

Then he made a very generous offer to the Green Lake Snowmobile Club (GLSC). Williams loaned the club this machine for its trail maintenance and grooming chores at no cost.

For years, the club has needed a reliable machine to help groom the numerous kilometres of the surrounding trail systems.

Heartfelt appreciation goes out to him for his kindness.

 

Sunday rides

Frank Dixon or Art Groves will take out groups of people on their snowmobiles for day trips to different parts of the Cariboo.

They leave from the clubhouse every Sunday at 10 a.m. weather permitting. If it is not too warm or too cold, the rides will happen.

Last weekend, a hint of spring was in the air early. The weather could change, so make sure you take advantage of these great rides while you can.

Bring a lunch as they start a fire at their destination and tell stories before they head back for home. For more information, call Frank at 250-456-7529, or Art at 250-456-2112.

 

Winterfest 2014

The GLSC will be having an Open House Family Fun Day and Poker Ride on Feb. 9 on BC Family Day long weekend.

There will be a concession and first sleds will leave the clubhouse out at 10:30 a.m. Make sure you bring your whole family, as there are a lot of things to do.

 

Seed sales

The GLSC is starting to sell seeds and plants to raise money for the cost of keeping the trails groomed.

There are some great deals for your veggie and flower gardens and this writer will help you with some of your questions on what grows great in the area. Fundraising kits are available.

Call Gail Potter at 250-644-4242 for more information.

 

Information wanted

Winter is a slow time of year and there are many people busy doing crafts in their homes or having various club meetings.

Please call me and I will come to cover these events for you and encourage more people to join in the fun. If there is a special anniversary happening in your family, an important birthday celebration, or a great winter story, I would love to hear about it.
