Marienville Trail Riders Snowmobile Club is a local snowmobile club based in Marienville, PA and is jointly a member of the PA State Snowmobile Association (PSSA). The PSSA is an organization of individuals, local snowmobile clubs,businesses, and snow craft manufacturers interested in promoting snowmobiling.
The Marienville Trail Riders have been hard at work in 2016 on the trails. Many projects have been done and many are still in the working stages. These projects have been done with Grant money and a lot of hard work. As a club, we are proud to improve the local trails for all the snowmobilers to enjoy in the Winters to come. It takes many hours to do Grant work before the trail work can begin. With co-operation from the U.S. Forest Service, we hope to get the trail system to be one that we can ride on and enjoy.
A big THANKS goes out to all that have given of their time.
This year our club purchased another groomer. This will make a big difference in the area's trail grooming. The members will be learning how to operate the groomer safely and keep trails smooth and enjoyable. If you are interested and have the time, come out and learn to operate the groomers. The U.S. Forest Service will not be grooming in our area this Winter. The Marienville Trail Riders will be responsible for grooming.
With all the good that our club did in 2016, we did have an incident during trail work on the trail 11 project. A dump truck was borrowed to haul gravel for the project. During the work, the truck was wrecked and cost one of our members...$5500. The member was the one that borrowed the truck and felt responsible. There was NO insurance that covered anything. Marienville Trail Riders voted to pay $2000. Someone donated $1000. The member was left with the balance of $2500.
Members of the club are getting together to raise the additional funds. We are doing a Valentine's Ham Dinner, Chinese Auction, Gun Raffle, Cupid Lottery Board, Turkey Cut-Out Fire Pit Raffle, and a 50/50 at the MACA Building in Marienville on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017 from 4 - 8 PM. We are looking for items for the Chinese Auction and door prizes. Tickets for the ham dinner will be $10 in advanced or $12.50 at the door. We need people to help sell gun, fire pit, and dinner tickets.
Please get behind our club and show support.
