We are posting a special advisory for all snowmobilers using our trails. A portion of our trail to Trout Lake runs along some power lines parallel to M-123. Cloverland Electric is replacing lines and poles along this section, which is about 3 miles long. Work will not be finished until sometime in early January 2014. The area has been signed and you are cautioned to use lower speeds and caution when riding this stretch. Watch for powerline equipment and workers!

USING 911 MARKERS
Along the Chippewa Snow Chaser Trails you will see small rectangular signs with two letters and four numbers on them. If you have an accident on the trail and need emergency help the first thing the responders need to know is exactly where the victim is located. Send someone in your party in each direction to find the nearest sign. You should encounter a sign within one mile in either direction. Memorize the two letters and 4 numbers and give them to the 911 operator. These small signs if used as locators will tell the 911 operator where you are in the forest and the first responders will be able to get there quickly.
TOWN & VILLAGE TRAVEL
We are asking riders to exercise caution and courtesy in the residential areas of our trail system. We have had complaints on speeding and discourteous snowmobilers and we have signed the area with "Private Drive Ahead" signs. Please respect these residents and display safe driving habits.
A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU...
A very special thank you from the Snow Chasers to Dale and Mieke Brelsford and Family for chairing a very successful Whitetails Unlimited event.

RUDYARD GROOMER FACILITIES
We do have the Rudyard Groomer Barn facility in use and we are able to start the season with the groomer in a heated area. We are also ordering gravel to complete the grounds that will provide a circular route for the groomer entrance and exit. The club also has an application turned into the DNR which would allow the grounds as a trail head and thus parking with an outdoor porta-john. Extra gravel was ordered banking on the approval of the application.
