OFSC TRAIL RIDING FINISHED FOR THIS 2013-2014 SEASON

OFSC Thanks Landowners and Permit buyers

Name of Snowmobile Club: Beautiful Eastern Association of Snowmobile Trails (BEAST)

Effective Date: April 1, 2014

Snowmobilers are being warned to stay off of area OFSC Prescribed snowmobile trails effective immediately as the snowmobile season has come to an end.  These trails are now reported as “Unavailable” (Red) on the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide at www.ofsc.on.ca, because area clubs have stopped regular grooming operations, and signs and stakes are being removed and gates and fences closed.  Snowmobilers are also advised that rapidly deteriorating snow and ice conditions due to spring thaw make snowmobiling extremely hazardous anywhere. Roads and road crossings are now generally bare and the ice on all waterways is melted, melting or unstable.

“The only safe and sensible course of action for snowmobilers is to put away their sleds until next winter,” stated Brian Moreau, Beautiful Eastern Association of Snowmobile Clubs. “The risks of trying that ‘one last ride’ are simply too high now that spring thaw has commenced.”

The public is also reminded that a OFSC snowmobile trail on private land reported as “Unavailable” means that access to that trail is also prohibited for any other users or persons for all other seasons, without the specific prior permission of the landowner. “On behalf of our clubs and volunteers, I want to thank all of the landowners who have generously allowed the use of their property for an OFSC snowmobile trail this winter,” concluded Moreau. “We also appreciate the support of the many snowmobilers who bought trail permits to help pay their share of the cost of trail operations for the past season.”

A very special thanks is also extended to all of the club volunteers who donated their services to assist local clubs in providing a successful season of snowmobiling. Although the winter is over, snowmobiling has become a year round business, so many volunteers will start immediately to plan and prepare for next winter.  If you are interested in helping out, please call our volunteer coordinator, Julie Anne Bedard at 613-256-2973.

 

For further info, please call Brian Moreau @ 613-253-3153

BEAST 305 Trail Closed Due to ATVs Trespassing

At the request of the landowner, we have closed BEAST 305 for the season. We remind snowmobilers that they must remain between the stakes to be considered on the trail and remind all others that you require an OFSC pass to use the trails. ATVs and other motorized vehicles are not authorized on OFSC trails.

Be advised that police may be called in situations where people are trespassing.

Trail Conditions and Grooming Status Update

The weather is great for this weekend and the trails within the BEAST trail system remain listed as available and are expected to remain available over the March break.  The trails are smooth and present some fantastic riding oppurtunities.  Please continue to exercise caution while riding as some icy spots do exist.  In anticipation of impending spring conditions, please be advised we are likely to reduce grooming frequency on trails due to the overall great condition of our trail system as well as the reduction in traffic.  Generally you can expect all our trail system will be reduced to a single pass over a 7 day period.  We will monitor the weather closely over the coming weeks and may further reduce grooming operations on some trails as the warm weather begins to arrive. 

BEAST Golf Tournament

Are you looking forward to the warm weather to park your sled and break out your golf clubs?  Why not support your local snowmobile club and enjoy a round of golf at the same time.  Round up your riding buddies and enter a team into the BEAST Golf Tournament.  The tournament will be held at the Canadian Golf and Country Club on May 23rd.  Tee-off time is 2:00pm.  Registration is now open.  Register today to reserve your spot in this great event. www.canadiangolfclub.com/joinEvent.aro?eID=694
 

BEAST Trail Work Days

BEAST Trail work days?  This must be old news you say?  Unfortunately even though the snow melts there is still trail work that is required.  A small army of volunteers is needed to clean up the trail system after the snow melts and before the farmers can access thier crop land.  The number of volunteers we get for this task is generally small as excitment for the past season has long since passed.  Can you help out?  Please contact your local sector coordinator which can be found on our website at www.thebeast.ca to see how you can help out this year. 
 

Manufacturer Sneak Peek

Did your favourite manufacturer come out with just the new buggy for you?  Did you put so many miles on riding the BEAST trails this winter that your old stead just can’t take the abuse anymore and needs to be updated?  Well don’t miss the BRP, Polaris and Yamaha manufacturer sneak peak coming to the Kanata Sensplex on March 18 and 19th.  The hours are 4pm-9pm on Tuesday March 18th and 11:00am-9:00pm on Wednesday March 19th.  

Thanks,
BEAST Executive

Trail Conditions

Have you checked the weather for this weekend yet?  It looks great and the trails within the BEAST system are still available, even after the heavy rain last week.  After the freeze up there are some icy spots so please continue to exercise caution but generally the trails are in good mid-season condition.  Groomers have been active this week trying to cover any exposed ground and will continue to work over the weekend to cut drifts from last nights windstorm and work the 5cm of snow that is forecasted for tomorrow.
 
Take advantage of the next couple of weeks as riding opportunities within District 1 will start to dwindle quickly.  March riding can make some of the best riding opportunities and it’s been a few years since we have been able to ride the BEAST trail system in March.       
 

General Meeting

Our March general meeting will be held next Thursday March 6, 2014 and will start at 8:00pm.  The meeting will be held at Rob Campbell’s garage located at 3602 Kettles Rd, Richmond, ON, K0A 2Z0.  Everybody is welcome and we encourage everybody to come out and find out what’s going on and how you can help out.
 

BEAST Golf Tournament

Have you been listening to the news?  The never ending winter they say.  Are you looking forward to the warm weather to park your sled and break out your golf clubs?  Why not support your local snowmobile club and enjoy a round of golf at the same time.  Round up your riding buddies and enter a team into the BEAST Golf Tournament.  The tournament will be held at the Canadian Golf and Country Club on May 23rd.  Tee-off time is 2:00pm.  Registration will open shortly so start lining up your golfing partners and remember to sign up early to reserve your spot at this great event.  More details including event flyer will be distributed in the near future.    
 
Thanks,
BEAST Executive

Beauties Raise $2228 for Carleton Place Hospital

The Beauties of the BEAST ride took place this past weekend with 14 ladies taking part.  This entire trip was planned and guided by ladies.  The ride was in support of the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital and raised $2228.  Way to go ladies!

Trail Conditions 

The 15cm of fresh snow Saturday night has helped turn all BEAST trails into the best shape they have been in years.  The groomers are operational all over our region turning trails back into flat pieces of perfection from heavy use and fresh snow on the weekend.  Please take note that our Northwest sector coordinator has reported a swamp has flooded west of Mississippi Lake on the E104A leaving an area of open water on the trail.  This area is marked with caution tape.  Please remember that volunteers do their best to mark dangerous areas but the trails are not routinely patrolled and travel on all trails involves some inherent risk and is a use at your own risk activity.  Please ride with caution at all times.

General Meeting

This Thursday (February 6th) at 8:00 PM we will be meeting at Jim’s Garage (1405 7th Line of Beckwith, Carleton Place) for our General Meeting and everyone is welcome.  We encourage everyone to come out to find out what’s going on and if there is something you might be able to help out with.
 

BEAST Poker Rally

Have you been riding the trails to much and looking for a chance to recover some of your costs?  Enter the BEAST Poker rally on Saturday February 8, 2014 for your chance to win up to $1000 in cash prizes.  The poker run will start at Danby’s Bar and Grill.  Registration is between 9:00am and 11:00am with return to Danby’s at 5:00pm.  Winners will be announced at 6:00pm.  Entry is $25 with $5 of your entry fee being donated to the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital.  Single day special event permits will be available for purchase at this event.  Please see our website at www.thebeast.ca for the event flyer.
