    Fabulous day attending day 1 of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt

    Scarsdale, we didn't go as it wasn't in the plans but it is in my bucket. Returning from the Gaspesie during the summer on our bikes we did attempt to visit the BRP factory but as we neared Valcourt we encountered a team paving the road. The paving team had recently sprayed "tac coat" (liquid adhesive tar applied to the roadbed before resurfacing with blacktop) and the flag men motioned for the waiting traffic to travel over the tac coat. No thanks..needless to say we pulled a U-turn and returned to camp. Hope to get back that way this summer. As for the winter races I will definitely return. Had a great day. Great energy / excitement. Do you still drive the hummer? I'm always looking for your plate "PLAYHRD" on the parkways. Haven't come across it yet. I trust you are enjoying your winter. Stay safe...

    Returned from RDL yesterday -Thursday the 21st by means of the black trail. Parallel & or intersecting trails on Routes 20, 55 & 410 were all groomed & looking appetizing. In comparison to two weeks ago where the intersecting trails on 410 & 55 were bare or under water. Happy trails....

    Groomer didn’t disappoint.. awesome trails

    Good morning Joe. Eddy O & Liam did not travel with us on this journey. Eddy O did come with us a few weeks back to Caribou. Liam is a freshman attending Binghamton University & during school break he chose to stay behind & visit with the girlfriend despite speaking all year of the anticipated annual trip. Needless to say Liam lost a few favorable points with me....First year of college and he is ruined. Ha ha On Monday we left RDL, Tuesday Matane, Wednesday Maria outside of New Richmond, Thursday Rimouski & back to RDL in 2.5 hours arriving @ 1130. A quick change, load trailer, and stock up on Cadbury chocolate @ the neighboring fuel stop & on the black trail @ 1pm arriving in Pittsburg at 7pm with 2' + - of new snow to shovel to get in the door. Referring to supporting QR where do we stand with the QR referral cards written in French where the card states in sum & substance we are eating / sleeping here because the business was referred too on QR? The entry level receptionists / hostesses we mentioned QR too were unaware of the QR website. The idea of providing the card written in French with contact information for advertising on QR is optimal. For purposes of supporting this site I regret I didn't have any cards to offer. Attached are a handful of photos depicting the fantastic trail conditions & weather we encountered.

    Maiden voyage...Running in standard mode, saddle bagging & pushing snow we did 18 on smooth trails & 15mpg on the day we were pushing snow @ 45 x 60mph....tank holds 9.5 gallons. Average speed at the end of the day was 30 x 35 mph with food, fuel & photo stops. Sleds ran at an average of 170F with one sled always running +2 in comparison to the other. Would at times fluctuate between 165 & 180F.

    We came across this snowblower in the “rhubarb” outside of Rimouski. We watched the plow truck come to the rescue. They placed a chain to both front ends and the snowblower easily popped out of the ditch.

    In arriving to Matane we stopped off @ the local ski doo dealer - Andre Halle & Fils - here in Matane QC. WOW ! Great inventory . Obviously only recently opened. Jean-guy Hallé I think you posted photos of the grand opening some months back. The service writer David Rioux couldn’t be nicer. He represents the Ski-Doo product well. Because of D. Rioux’ professionalisms our machines are getting their first service in accordance to the current mileage recommended in the service manual. Customer service @ it’s best. Highly recommended .
  8. Aside from Wednesday the 13th’s snow storm that prohibited us from departing the Signature due to giant wind drifts, riding Thursday & Friday to the Delta & then onto the Casino we found the trail conditions wonderful. Saturday on the other hand from the casino to the Signature was anything but wonderful but nonetheless we made the best of it. Currently at Hotel Universal - Riviere du loop where they allowed us to check in early where we enjoyed the outdoor amenities as we did @ the Fairmont. Tomorrow we will head east and see what awaits us. Was speaking to a rider earlier today - Sunday the 17th who warned us to stay off 597 as it was horrific / blown in. Unless the map dictates different or someone from here chimes in with personal knowledge we will likely heed his advice. Safe riding all.

    Fabulous day attending day 1 of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt

    Traveled the black trail from Pittsburg to Valcourt by means of Canaan Vt - Coaticook & Sherbrooke. The snowmobile trails were either thin or bare where our paths crossed. Sometimes under water. I personally can't t speak for Chartieville - La Patrie - Lac Megantic. - La Guadeloupe - St Georges. Safe travels. Paddy O

  11. Friday Feb 8, 2019 @ 8am, 40F, a little heavier then a "soft rain" is falling @ camp in Pittsburg NH. What is one to do? Hhhmmm? Day one of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt located in Valcourt is starting. Phone the venue & am told the rain has ceased, & blue skies are overhead with snow in the forecast for later afternoon. Google says Valcourt is shy of a two hour journey. Passports in hand & off we go. $20 US + - entry fee allows us into a heated suite for the entire day. A fantastic day was spent watching competitive races involving snowmobiles, rubber tired ATV's ,& motorcycles both track & rubber tire. It was my first time attending and will definitely return. If you have not yet experienced it I suggest you do if you enjoy the entertainment described. Racing occurs on both a mogul infield allowing heart stopping air shows or on the oval track that fosters wicked speed. There is rarely down time between races. When they are racing on the infield the crew is prepping the oval track & conversely. Race after race, after race. Exciting ! For those reading this posting in real time the show runs today - Saturday 2/9 & Sunday 2/10. A description of the venue can be reviewed @ www.grandprixvalcourt.com. Google will translate it for you. No regrets here. Fantastic day full of entertainment both on the track and in the vendors tent. Children in tow? Didn't appear to be an issue as there were young & old in attendance. Additionally on site is a family park offering in part tobogganing , bouncy castles etc albeit we didn't venture over to it. Additionally they have a limited assortment of food vendors on site & a heated bathrooms. Stay safe. Paddy O Oval sleds.eml
