Here are the other pictures. The first one is under a bridge, we found out why it is leaning a bit - that can is holding the whole thing up!

Per the usual in MI - the weather throughout the day went from full sun to heavy snow and back again multiple times.

Trails looked better this time of year than any of the other handful of clubs I've helped out - and the geniuses that built your signing trailers deserve a pat on the back! Looking forward to riding this year.

Yep, we always blame the strange weather on Kenny!

Thanks for the compliment on the trailers. We went back and fourth on whether or not it made any financial sense to build one. I took an old trailer that I had, and some scrap wood and built the first attempt. Super funny looking at it now: http://www.straitsareasnowmobileclub...read.php?t=420
Obviously it has been upgraded since then, and last year I built the smaller dragster trailer. I can't imagine doing signing without them now.

The weather was great this year. Didn't get wet 1 time.
We also need some attention on the "other" trailer. That was my 1st year with it. Gonna stock it a bit and make some more mods Also Neil teh spring shackle needed to be welded on that trailer before it goes out again. See you this weekend Neil. Hope your feeling better.

Thank you to everyone who is brushing and signing this year. I promise I will make it up some year to help, unfortunately this is our busy time and it's hard to get away.

Sorry I didn't make it UP this year to help. The first weekend we were busy at work. This past weekend Neil got in touch with me and said he had plenty of people for what work was left. Thanks to those that did the work

A huge thank you to all of those who came up to help out. We just could not keep these trail going without your involvement. It was great seeing everyone again! And if was great seeing some new faces too!

The weather is slowly turning here. The trails are in pretty good shape. Over the next month we will do some mechanical brushing with the groomer out on the West end, and a final grading touchup of some of the trails to ensure we have a perfect base just in case this el-nino winter come to be.

Next up is Novi. See some of you there!

Awesome looking ride, Kenny
The local dealer just got in a new XRS Renegade with the silver and yellow colors. They look really frickin sweet too!
