  2. Correspondence from the FCMQ PRESS RELEASE News from your federation : The Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec welcomes the 2020-2021 season with enthusiasm Terrebonne, October 1st, 2020 - The Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec (FCMQ) is proud to announce the beginning of its 100% online trail permit sale for a second consecutive year. The goal of this procedure is still to lighten the club volunteers work load and to make the purchase of trail permits faster and more convenient for members. Through this system, volunteers can thus devote the maximum of their time to trail maintenance, a colossal task for volunteers. In addition, online purchases allow snowmobilers to purchase their trail permit seven (7) days a week, 24 hours a day without having to leave home. Snowmobilers can therefore immediately acquire their trail permit with a $1,000,000 civil liability insurance from Intact Insurance, the official insurer of the FCMQ*. The current health crisis has forced the FCMQ board of directors to overlook its operations in order to face these unprecedented times. Several establishments and in-trail procedures managed by club volunteers will be overlooked in order to respect Public Health guidelines. Information provided by the government of Quebec, stipulates that we will not be faced with a second COVID-19 related provincial closure, leading the board of directors to see the upcoming season with much enthusiasm, placing aside any potential plan. In the event of regional closures, please be assured that snowmobile member contributions will be used for trail network improvement and maintenance during this time. A new feature has been implemented this year! In order to satisfy our customers, we wish to provide a certain latitude when purchasing a daily trail permit. As you know, unforeseen events can compromise your riding date. The FCMQ has revised its procedures concerning the sale of your daily trail permit. Therefore, you have up to 72 hours prior to your riding date to make a change. Details at fcmq.qc.ca Contest - Your best winter purchase The FCMQ has set up a contest to promote the annual trail permit and to thank the snowmobilers who make their purchases during the pre-sale period from October 15 to November 15, 2020. The participants must go to the Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec website (www.fcmq.qc.ca) and purchase an annual trail permit or an antique annual trail permit in order to be automatically entered in the contest. Participants have a chance to win one of four (4) prepaid VISA cards, valued at $1000.00 CDN each. Details at fcmq.qc.ca The FCMQ interactive trail map The 2020-2021 interactive trail map is online. We invite you to consult this user-friendly map, and to test the distance calculation tool. Happy browsing! The interactive trail map is well supported by Chrome and Edge web browsers. It is always recommended to use the latest versions. Internet Explorer is no longer supported. Please note, for this season, there will be no printing of the trail map, nor of the services guide. We recommend you consult the web version of the trail map or you may also purchase our iMotoneige application to obtain all of the required information needed for planning your trips. Thank you for understanding this temporary service interruption. Online Customer Service In constant evolution, the FCMQ's website now has a new Online support section to improve the Frequently Asked Questions, also making your research much easier. All of the information needed at your fingertips. This section will allow you to target specific subjects’ categories, thus facilitating your research. If you don't find the information you are looking for, you may also communicate directly with the FCMQ's customer service department via an interactive form system. Simple, fast and efficient!

  3. Awesome. That journey made for a long day. I trust you enjoyed yourselves. as everyone in the photo is beaming. Those are our local trails as we have a camp in Pittsburg. I refer to the north country or the official name, Great North Woods as God's country. Regretfully, we stand to lose access to the many trails in Pittsburg, due to the few prohibitions being consistently violated. The locals, the same property owners that graciously afford us the right to access their property are up in arms. IMO social media has not been good to the community/sport as it relates to Pittsburg. What was the best-kept secret a few years back is no longer. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ NH Bureau of Trails - Trail Notifications & Club Info September 3 at 8:45 AM · The Bureau met with several landowners in Pittsburg earlier this week to discuss whether they close the trails on their property or keep them open for OHRV use. This issue is from the minority of riders (the 5%) that choose to ignore posted trail signs and ride where they are not welcomed to do so. When the Bureau, or local club, posts a 10 MPH sign or SLOW sign there is a reason for it. Slower speeds reduce dust, noise and general concerns from landowners. This summer has seen a dramatic increase in outdoor use and a lot of new people to the OHRV sport. This is good, but those new users need to understand that the trail system in NH is based primarily on the use of private lands for public recereation trail existence. This use is a delicate balance and it ALWAYS is based on the landowner being happy with the users. This upcoming holiday weekend is a key factor in the future of trails in the Pittsburg area. Slow down, pay attention to signs, and ride responsibly and reasonably. All playgrounds have rules; follow them. NH Bureau of Trails - Trail Notifications & Club Info
  4. Great idea to view the photos. Here are a few random shots with no specific order or reason. Each photo brings me back to the moment. Dream on. JAK can you pick yourself out? IMG_0846.m4v
  5. 2 of 3 loaded. Such excitement. WOW ! Wish we were there to experience that. Thank you for sharing.
  6. Shows you how Biden is unrealistic. https://www.lohud.com/get-access/?return=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lohud.com%2Fstory%2Fnews%2Flocal%2F2020%2F07%2F21%2Fmilitary-surplus-main-street-what-lower-hudson-law-enforcement-got%2F5389853002%2F
  7. GT Rider, Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing. Our past rides out to Meat Cove were quite enjoyable. The two things that come to mind when I think of Meat Cove is the beautiful scenery to & from but the sketchy neighborhood you pass through, so out of the norm for its surroundings. The second memory is when we were there last, within hours of our visit we read the following day of a woman accidentally riding her MC off the cliff. Fortunately, I believe it ended well for her. https://globalnews.ca/news/4434423/serious-motorcycle-crash-cape-breton/ Stay safe all.
  8. Joe, you are correct. That is an '07 Road King Classic & yes HD is no longer is producing them for the American market. She is a great machine & to this day I very much enjoy taking her out. The '17 Ultra Glide Limited is also sweet & far more comfortable as it has the batwing fairing, couch-like seat, and a stereo system like no other in comparison to the RK but the '07 get all the compliments. I know I am exaggerating but it seems like every other bike we pass is near identical to our red-colored '17 UGL. Having said that I'm not complaining. Any day out on either of the bikes is a great day. Talk soon.
  9. After reading your post I couldn't resist looking back @ a few journies we have made to N.S. & PEI. In fact, if we were not being dictated too it is highly likely we would be visiting shortly if we hadn't already ventured up. Apologizing in advance for the # of photos.
  10. Wonderful photos. As always, THANK YOU ! What's with the abandoned snowmobile? Paddy O
  11. I didn't want to hi-jack Playhard & JG's posts in the Matapedia Valley forum, so I chose to drop these videos here of the Blue Angels. Ginny & I took the videos from on top of the Kensico Dam in Valhalla, NY, a short ride from Playhards NY compound. The hyperlink is a commercial link that contains video footage from within the cockpit. https://abc7ny.com/see-the-blue-angels-fly-over-philly-and-nyc-from-inside-the-cockpit/6137486/ Stay safe all. Enjoy. Video_1.MOV Video___2.MOV
  12. I have not been on in a few days, but when this one-liner - teaser appeared in my inbox, it piqued my interest enough to sign on & scroll up & down to see what warranted the post. Regretfully I came across Groomer's response where Groomer replied in sum & substance he was too stubborn. Wishing the powers to be at the club will make some sacrifices in the future & entertain Groomer's concerns & if so, maybe Groomer will give careful thought to the offer, if any, to return. In the interim, I am delighted to read Groomer is enjoying life. Going forward, best to each of you during these trying times. Stay safe all. Paddy O
  13. Me too. I split multiple memberships between Bill & JG's clubs annually.
