the Buckhorn District Snowmobile Club

The Buckhorn District Snowmobile Club is based in Buckhorn, Ontario, about 25 minutes north of the City of Peterborough. We are a member club of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs, and are one of seven clubs making up OFSC District 2.

BDSC volunteers and grooming staff maintain approximately 165 kilometres of trails through varying terrain, from the east shore of Chemong Lake in the south, to the Gooderham area in the north.

The bulk of our trails are in the Municpality of Trent Lakes, in an area of beautiful Canadian Shield forest once known as The Five Points Trail System – a throwback to the earliest days of organized snowmobiling.

To the west, our trails join those of the Twin Mountains Snowmobile Club in the Bobcaygeon area. On the east side of our system our trails connect with those of the Paudash Trail Blazers and the Stoney Lake Snoriders, leading to the Wilberforce and Apsley areas.

Wow! Can’t believe it’s been a year already. Certainly a big loss for his friends and family.

Was thinking about Doug the other day, little things you see or think remind you of him

Thanks for posting, it’s hard to believe that it’s been a year already. He is missed a lot around the neighbourhood.❀️

Yes, we are missing him a lot. Very hard to believe it's been a year today.

Thank you for Posting, Miss him A Lot Around here!!!

Thanks for posting this Dan.

Been a while, so a little update.

BDSC held their AGM and monthly meeting last month(May).
We had one extra attendee at the meeting outside our executive board. Thank you Rob for your interest!!

There are 16 executive positions in the BDSC and they were filled by the same 8 people as last year. Thank you to those 8 people!!πŸ‘
Without these 8 volunteers, there is no BDSC. These 8 volunteers do much of the trail work and all the behind the scenes work that make our trails a reality! Kudos to you all!
We also have a core group of 5-10 volunteers that come out when we need the extra manpower. This number has increased by a couple this year!πŸ‘πŸ‘Š
We kept a tally of the number of hours our volunteers gave last season from September onwards. This total does not include driving to and from the trails, the prep work beforehand, paperwork, groomer operations, club meetings, etc.
The total amount of BDSC volunteer hours last season was well over 1100 hours!!! 😲πŸ’ͺπŸ‘Š

We accomplished many projects in the past season.
Some of these include:
-redecking the 55'+ bridge up by Gooderham(509)
-excavator work on Greens Mountain trail(509) in cooperation with KATVA and OF4WD
-massive brushing, signage and reopening of 506 north of Parking Lot 2 up to the E108
-reroute of 509 where it crosses Hwy503 so it lines up with HCSA 9 and eliminates the road running
-rebuilt the deck at the clubhouse...
and the list goes on

We are proud of what we have accomplished with the limited resources we have!! Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate and we didn't enjoy the fruits of all our labour.

We are currently working with KATVA to do some work on the 505 trail. It is rough and wet in some areas and we hope to make some improvements this summer.

We are also working with KATVA and OF4WD to do some more work on the 509 at Greens Mountain as it needs some serious intervention. We just put some Band-Aids on it last year to make it tolerable for the short term.

We are also working to get the big water holes on the E211 addressed, north and south of P1.

That's about it for now. Thank you all for your support!
Our next monthly meeting will be Sept 19th.

BDSC wishes all of you a great summer!!
Enjoy!! Cheers!!

A few of the BDSC board members went out on Monday to feed the black flies and clean up P1 and P2(parking lots on Hwy 507) as part of Trent Lakes Clean Roads initiative!!!
Thank you to Jim, John and Gord for your time!!!

Two trailer loads of garbage were collected but most of it had nothing to do with snowmobiles or ATVs. Some items will need to be removed by the township/county, ie shingles, concrete, etc..

Good job guys!!πŸ‘πŸ’ͺπŸ‘Š

Just out of curiosity, who pays the dumping fees at the landfill or does the municipality allow you to offload for free because of the cleanup efforts?

Great work

Great job everyone for picking up everyone else's trash. πŸ‘
