Trail Masters Report: It has been a great year as far as trail work. We worked on most of our trails and added some, starting with the Knotty Moose, Coley , MCI, Great Lakes, Cochan, Black Mtn. Beaver Brook,, Horseshoe Brook, Gary's, Turk Mtn, Bunker Pond, East Branch, the new Chisolm Trails and best of all, our newest connector trail, Roxbury to Rumford trail system. This allows for a big loop, Roxbury to Rumford to Peru to Dixfield to Mexico, and back to Roxbury. We will be opening it up early next year. It still has to have time setting up, putting in bridges, water bars, and tender loving care. I would like to thank Roger, Sheri, and Jane for taking on the Club and saving it from folding. ( Making Roxbury Great Again). Thank you all for your support of me while I was Trailmaster Mike

The Mexico Club is having a meeting this Wednesday night at 6pm Aug 21 downstairs at the town hall . You should be there if you want to see this club continue because they need a Vice President and a trailmaster or riding in Mexico could come to an end
Sent in our first grant reimbursement request $20,891.00. Our check from state will be $14.588.00, with $8,100.00 more to claim. With most our bills paid we should be in great shape to hit every trail, bunker pond Dana's Rip and Tear Trail, Great Lakes. With landowner approval, we will have a new trail into Andover and a new trail to Rumford Mexico. What I need from riders is help on trails, there is so much stuff out there to do to make our trails Great Again. If you live in Andover, Roxbury or Byron, join the club. We have some great things going on for you. We will be sending out a letter to all registered atv owners in our towns soon, Mike
