Remember to Think SNOW!!!

GOOD NEWS!!!  If you remember, back in the spring we applied for a DCNR grant so that we could purchase a set of Matt tracks and a new Mogul master drag for our trail truck. Well, we're happy to share with you that the DCNR has approved our grant. As soon as we get the check from the DCNR we will be ordering our tracks and drag. With any luck, we may have it on the trails this season.

We would like to say Thank You to the members who have paid their dues and sent in extra donations . . . we could not do it without you. The trails are ready and the gates will be open as soon as we have enough snow, The chuckwagon is waiting and we will have as many trailside cookouts as we possibly can this season. We will need everyone's help this year in supporting the club as we will be financially challenged with the purchase of this new equipment due to the required 20% match. We are asking if you have not paid your membership, please do so as soon as possible, if you have any friends that are not members of the club, please ask them to join. We need all the help we can get. We hope to see you on the trails soon.

Our Club's purpose is to promote friendship and good snowmobiling among all riders. Members are encouraged to attend monthly meetings.

 

MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS for the 2016-2017 season are due. You can print an application from the web site. Remember, these trails are insured and maintained privately by local clubs and we need your support.

 

New members are welcome to join at any time!!

  Why should I join the Maple Summit Snowmobilers?

The Maple Summit Snowmobile Club is a small club located near Cranberry Glade Lake in the beautiful Laurel Mountains of Southwestern Pennsylvania. We are responsible for building bridges and maintaining and insuring the trails at Seven Springs to just north of Ohiopyle State Park.

 

TRAIL WORK will be announced. We are always looking for extra donations and volunteers to help with trail work and equipment maintenance.

 

TRAIL MAPS are available for purchase. The cost is $5.00 for members and $10.00 for nonmembers. Send your requests to Dave McCarty, 2533 Harrison City Road, Export, PA 15632, 724-519-7093, or twintracker3@aol.com.

MEMBERS: Reach out to other snowmobilers that are not already a member and get them to support and join the club. Everyone that uses these trails benefits from this club's efforts. These trails are maintained, insured, and paid for from dues and donations received by the club. Remember that Maple Summitís trail system is maintained by volunteers that make it possible for everyone to have a smooth ride.

Laurel Mountain Snowmobile Trail Fund: The Maple Summit, Laurel Highlands, and Rolling Ridge Snowmobile Clubs have started an account with the PA Parks & Forests Foundation to deposit money raised to help improve, maintain, and possibly expand our snowmobile trails in the Laurel Highlands. Click here for more details. Click here for donation information.

Snow Angels: Every year during the holiday season our club purchases gifts for the Children's Aid Home Programs of Somerset County. Click here to view some of the new Thank You letters we received.
