Trail and Bridge work

       
Trail and bridge done by LSSC members on Jan. 2, 2016
Sleeper Bridge just off RT 11, started on Friday, but quickly finished on Saturday morning by the LSSC crew!
Bridge was redecked/widened to give the groomer more room when crossing.

New Hampshire Snowmobiler Association's "Race into Winter" Snowmobile Show

Several Lake Sunapee Snowmobile Club members volunteered again this fall at the Grass Drags in Freemont, NH. Many of the LSSC volunteers have volunteered for this event over the years to help raise funds for the club. Our club president Craig Mayo has been instrumental in raising  this event to it's current level of success.
Consider coming out next year and volunteering for this national level event that attracts people from all of the US and Canada.

Sat. Feb. 22nd Trailside

This Saturday, February 22, the Lake Sunapee Snowmobile Club will be along Trail 380 at Bradford/ Henniker 4 Corners cooking hot dogs and hamburgers for a donation. We will also have drinks available. From the south follow Trail 380 out of Henniker to the junction which leads to the boat ramp on Lake Massasecum. From the north follow Trail 380 south about 4 miles south of the Ayer and Goss fuel pumps, and you can't miss us. We will have our Tucker Sno-Cat there as well.
10:00am- 2:00pm


Trailside Update!! As you can see from the photo,we had a warm and sunny day! Unfortunately, the heavy rain of the day before kept the rider count down. Casey Brennan, Jim Baker and Paul Lombardi got the cookout ready and waited and waited... Eventually we sold about $100 worth of food and drinks! But we had a great time meeting (and cooking for) everyone who did stop in! Maybe next time, with a little more planning, we can do better! Like in March, if the snow holds up? We'll keep you posted!

VT/NH/ME Reciprocity Weekend

  On Jan 30 and Feb 1, Paul Lombardi and Erik McCallum, lead by Craig Mayo, ventured out for the 3 state event. On Friday we rode across NH to the Maine state line and on to Rangley Lake. Along the way, we stopped at Tin Camp to feed the relatively tame Canadian jays! They would come right to your out- stretched hand and take whatever was offered! No wonder they were friendly! We continued on across the border,stopping at Lake Parmachenee, discovering a small fishing camp that was used by President Eisenhower . Now this was really "off the grid"! We had lunch in Oquossoc, a village on the west end of Rangley Lake. A quick ride across the lake to Rangley and back, then on back to Craig's "camp" in West Stewartstown, for a total of 170 miles! We were joined by Erik's cousin Todd and his son Mike Friday nite. We rode pretty much the same ride, but only going as far east as Lake Parmachenee.After playing in the fresh powder on the lake, we rode back some and headed south to Bosebeck Camp for lunch. That place was packed with sleds and riders! We ran into many other riders on the trails back, including NH's finest giving some people instructions on how to behave on the trail! We ended up doing a little over 100 miles on this ride! Fun was had by all! This reciprocity weekend deal is something everyone should put on their list! As long as you follow the other states' rules and regulations when riding there,you should no problem having a good time exploring places you normally wouldn't go!





1st Annual Progressive Ride 15Feb2014

Last Saturday, the 15th, while most of NH was still digging out from yet another storm(yay!), our Club hosted our 1st Annual Progressive Ride. With RSVP's numbering around 35, the organizers were excited for a large turnout! We planned on having 4 or 5 scheduled stops to enjoy various segments of an organized dinner, but those plans fell through.After gathering at Sunapee State Beach,we settled on doing a trail ride, down to Lake Todd. It was difficult keeping everyone together with approximately 30 sleds! On the way back we stopped at BUBBA'S in Newbury Harbor(Thanks guys!) for dinner.We then blasted up the lake to Craig Mayo's field for a huge bonfire and fireworks! This was accompanied by hot chocolate,cold drinks and plenty of baked items for dessert! Not to mention the adult vs. not so adult snowball fight! Many thanks to all who helped with this event! We definitely will do this again, maybe having breakfast as the meal, then riding all day!? Send us your feedback!
