II. Trail Maintenance Discussion - Fall Trail maintenance begins on Sunday 9/13 and will continue until all trails are ready for the season. Meet at the town office at 8AM

• Trails are OK, but need more snow

• May need to get a new drag for Stan’s groomer

• Need caution signs near the brook

• Trails from North Norway to Fryeburg were good per Stan’s trip today. Sweden area was good

• Fryeburg area is a snowmobile town. There is a rental dealer in the town with more than 200 sleds available to rent.

• Grooming of trails. May make some changes to which groomers cover which areas of the town. Stan’s groomer will have trouble grooming the trail where there are big hills. Have had a lot of trouble so far due to lack of snow.

• Need to consider making trails flatter next year to make grooming easier when there is little snow. This would require excavation work

• ITS 80 and 89 both go through the town of Bridgton

• ITS 89 gets close to Harrison

• Oxford has groomed for the first time as of last night.

• Bypass trail for the Big Hill is no longer usable per land owner request. The Big hill can still be used.

Please remember to keep track of all trail work and grooming man hours, including receipts. Submit receipts to Mike for reimbursement. All records of maintenance and work will be due at the April 2021 meeting so the data can be compiled for the grant application.

III. Groomer Maintenance

• All groomers are working fine, no mechanical issues

V. Other Discussion

• Need more trail maps

• Club ride next Saturday 2/20 at 9AM – meet at the town office – more details to come. If anyone has suggested for a ride destination or a good loop, let us know. 

Adjourned: 6:10 pm
