Let’s go sledding!! The Greenstone Snowmobile Club would like to inform everyone that all of our trails have been opened for over a month now. In fact, we where the first in all of Ontario to open a part of our trails this year. This would not have been possible without all the hard work from all of our volunteers. The Greenstone Snowmobile Club would like to remind everyone to have a look at our website, www.snowclub.ca, for a list of all the poker runs for the season. One has already gone by, but the second one will be on Monday, February 15th 2016. The Greenstone Snowmobile Club will...

Greenstone Snow Club update Jan 19.2015

Posted by on Jan 19, 2016 in Club News | Comments Off on Greenstone Snow Club update Jan 19.2015

Yes we are still here! It’s been a slow start like many other snow clubs across Ontario this year, do in part to the late winter we’ve had so far. Many club’s across Ontario are faced with “swamping” the Groomer because the ground is not frozen yet. But this hasn’t stop us from moving ahead with our club. As you know the Longlac and Geraldton Snow Club have joined force together, so that we can better server our community. The Longlac groomer is down for the count, but with the help of District 15, we were able to get an older, “in working condition” groomer from...

Did you know there is only 11 weeks until winter is finally here? Lucky for us they say we are going to be blessed with a wonderful winter with a lot of snow and mild temperatures.

We were well accepted, everyone was happy to see us there and I am looking forward to working...

How to stay good bye to a community that you love. As many of you may have heard, yes I have decided to leave my home here in Geraldton and relocate to Sudbury. Not a easy decision when you already enjoy living in a wonderful small community like Greenstone. So many opportunities, so many things to do; and don’t let others tell you any different!  Living in a small community is all about giving back to your community. I do have deep roots in Greenstone, born in Hillsport then Nakina, on to Longlac and now Geraldton for the past 13 years.  The life of a volunteer in a small community can be...

  What an amazing winter we’ve had! Nothing makes us snowmobilers happier then when it snows. we were lucky again this year and had plenty of it!  We had a challenging start of our season this year, with many things happening to us. First, our volunteers from both clubs spent countless hours brushing our trail system.   This year for some reason Mother Nature made the brush grow a lot more than in other years. I didn’t mind the extra work it gave me, I actually lost a few pounds but still a lot of work. Mechanical break downs started early as well. With the Geraldton Groomer, broken...
