President’s News Letter

2023 President’s Newsletter – Moultonboro Snowmobile Club – November, 2023

Welcome to all members, old and new, to our exciting 2022/2023 snowmobile season.  It is an honor to serve the club as your president.  Much has already taken place behind the scenes to get ready for the season and now we are raring to go.

This past May, members elected a new board of directors, a new treasurer, secretary and president.  It is a good team with lots of energy.  The club had a well-attended member’s meeting in October, and we expect a good turnout at the upcoming Christmas party.  It will be December 10’th, 6PM at Hart’s Turkey Farm.  Information and tickets are available on the club’s web site.  After two years off, it will be an enjoyable evening to get together again and kick off the holiday season.  Please reserve your seats now.!

Other events planned include a Youth Safety Class on December 17’th, in Ossipee, NH.  Also, group rides around the area on Saturdays in January and February and longer guided rides mid-week.  Finally, a Progressive Supper on February 25’th with stops for appetizers, soup/salad and then deserts.

Trail work, led by trail-master Eric Erving, has been busy this fall.  Most trails are cleared and mowed.  Teams of volunteers resurfaced nine bridges and built a new one.  Swallow Point trail was renovated, from Shaker Jerry Rd to Kona Farm Rd.  Trail rerouting will be encountered on Corridor 15 at the east side of Kanasatka, the east side of Lees Pond, crossing the Neck Road near Far Echo and near the Cup and Crumb.  Countless other small improvements were made, with the goal to keep the riding safe and smooth.  Maps will be available before the season opens with details of the route changes.

The club’s grooming equipment is maintained and ready to go.  The Gator is getting old and needed a good bit of repair but has been working well while mowing the trails.  The two Sno-Cat Tuckers are in good shape, and we have a new drag for the west side of town and Corridor 15.  The Ski-Doo Skandic rounds out our fleet of groomers and is good for rolling early season snowfall into a solid base.

You, the members, are an important part of the equation as we head towards winter.  In addition to the social side, your dues and donations replenish the club’s bank account after the fall preparation season.   Excavation costs were high this year, repair costs were over $1500, insurance over $5000 and we continue to rent the porta-potty at the club’s garage, available for member’s use during the season.  We appreciate your support.  It is expensive to do what we need to do.

The fastest way to get your club membership card, good for a $30 discount on sled registrations, is to use the NHSA web site, logging in with your email address.  You can also get your membership by using the club’s web site ( or mail in the back of this newsletter with a check.

The Moultonboro Snowmobile Club board of directors and officers hope to meet you somewhere on the trails.   Please call me at 603-253-6707 with questions, suggestions or to volunteer.

Have a great snowmobiling season!
