Just a reminder that our Summer Bike Rally is coming up in June.

Pat and Dave Watson have kindly offered to host this year’s activity starting at 3 p.m on Saturday, June 22nd..  Their address is 494717 RR 6 Traverston Rd. Markdale, ON..  The route will start at Sideroad 60 and Veterans Way –  it’s primarily flat.  Folks can gather at the Watson’s first, or just meet everyone at the starting point.  It’s an out and back, so riders can bike as little or far as they want.  A potluck supper will follow at the Watson’s.  They are providing the main dish, but  everyone else should bring either an appetizer, a side, a salad or dessert…….also  we ask everyone  to bring their own cutlery , dishes, drinks etc….less work for the hosts.

IMPORTANT NEWS: GNSC Klondyke Trails

To all skiers,

A few days ago we were informed by Grey County Staff that logging was going to start in the Klondyke forest shortly.  We asked for clarification of the impact to our trails for the ski season.  They have just advised us that all trails in the Klondyke are closed due to the logging, and the estimated time for the work is 3 months. 

We know how disappointing this will be to many of you, but want to assure you that all our other trails on the private landowner properties (Turner-Power-Gonthier/Barnes/James/Barrhead loop) will be open and maintained through the season.   And of course, our members can ski free at several other clubs during the ski exchange weeks listed in the Newsletter and our website. 

If there are any favourable updates from the County about the logging activity, we will inform you immediately. 

Thank you for your support and understanding.  Let’s hope that old man Winter gets going soon so we can have some trails to groom and ski on.  

On behalf of GNSC President John Lamberts and the rest of the Board.

Reminder – No Dogs, No Snowshoeing on the Ski Trails

Please be considerate of skiers and our groomers – do not snowshoe on the ski trails and do not walk your dog on them – besides damaging the trails we work so hard to maintain, it can be dangerous to skiers. Skiers – if you see any signs of these problems, please report them to us immediately.

Skiers Etiquette – Please review before you use our trails

Skiers, if you have to remove your skis to go up or down hills, please walk on the side of the trail not in the middle.  This is for your safety and for the safety and convenience of other skiers.

Many of our trails are on private land owners’ property.  We are very grateful for their generosity. Please respect them and stay on the ski trails that run through their properties.

Please consider the hard-working volunteer groomers and other skiers when you choose to use a pulk.  If the sled tracks won’t stay in the tracks set by the groomers, please keep off groomed trails.  Otherwise, the tracks are messed up for everyone, and the groomers’ work is undone.
