Special Notice from Noble Windpower
The winter season raises special safety considerations at operational windparks. Snowmobiling, sledding, skiing, hunting and snowshoeing are just a few winter activities. When partaking in any of these winter sports, be careful not to get too close to the wind turbines and overhead electrical lines, as snow and ice can accumulate and present potential hazards. Stay on designated trails, and when stopping to admire the view, please be sure to enjoy the scenic beauty from a safe distance. Also, please instruct any guests or visitors to the area to do the same.
No park and ride at Walmart.
S30 on the west side of Warsaw is usable to get in to get gas. It can be wet and muddy. Please stay between the stakes or don’t go into Warsaw.
Trails are OPEN. It has been pretty windy all night and the last few weeks. Please ride cautiously there may be trees on the trails. Let me know if you find an issue so we can get it taken care of ASAP. The fields will be rough until we get the groomers out.
TRAILS ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
I know there are probably a few upset people that think trails should be open today…
The trail system just is not ready.
There are a few sections of main trails that are not marked. There is a section of one trail that was marked and someone thought it would be fun to knock down the stakes. Also between late crops and hunting season some trails could not have been marked yet. As always we are looking for more help and ways to get people involved with more than the fun part.
And I know we have opened with less snow. But the ground has no frost in it and there is a lot of water. With the ground being soft any where the snow is thin we would just tear it up. We need to try not to damage people’s property as much as possible.
I communicate with 8 other clubs and none of them were opening today also for pretty much the same reasons.
The way to try and prevent this from happening again is to be involved. Just joining the club isn’t enough. Show up at meetings, help with fund raisers, groom, help maintain equipment, work on trails, volunteer to join the club leadership. Everyone is busy.
