ALERT TO ALL ATV’ERS AND CAMPERS NEAR DEER LAKE CAMPGROUND !!
You may be aware that the co-trail master of the Airline Snackbar ATV club has been dealing with broken ankle and leg, requiring a multitude of surgeries. David is at home now recovering from having his lower leg amputated as a result of these injuries.
We have received word that his camp on Deer Lake was broken into, and the thieves made off with just about everything in the cabin.
These items include, but are not limited to the following:
Generator, converter, kayak, bedding off the bed, his pillows and paper goods he had stored in plastic bins to protect from dampness.
This act is beyond all common sense or reasonable thought, and we need help to find the low lifes that committed this appalling break-in.
We ask that you keep an eye out for any of these items, perhaps your neighbor has suddenly acquired a generator or a kayak and has no reasonable source for them.
Please help out if you can, David has certainly had enough to deal with already, and now that he is on the verge of being able to come back to camp, he won’t have any of his basic needs. You can call with any information or anonymous tip -- Pete at 460-4474

Update for Airline Riders Snowmobile Club, Oct. 29, 2018
Hello riders ! The season will be on us before we know it. Hopefully this year will be one of steady moderate snowfall, without the warm spells in between so the trails can be maintained for the best riding.
The first meeting will be on Nov. 12, 2018, following the last atv club meeting on the same night. Don’t forget that our meetings are now held at the Beddington town building & firehouse on Rte. 193 due to the schedule conflict with the snack bar. They will still begin at 6 pm on the second Saturday of the season. Elections will be held at this time for the snowmobile club, terms will run for 2 years.
We are hoping to have David Bridges back with us in some capacity after his 2 year “vacation” due to his leg injury and continuing surgeries. Unfortunately, he had to have his leg amputated above the knee in the fall, but, knowing David, we don’t expect it to slow him down too much !
More updates to follow. Any questions, call Frank at 454-8133 or Pete at 460-4474.
Also, new mailing address is 154 Lakeview Lane, Crawford Me. 04694. Please stay on marked trails, it makes it very hard to groom when there are tracks going every which way. Make sure you tell someone where you are planning on riding in case you run into trouble, they will know where to look. Enjoy the snow while we have it and ride safely.

DON’T DRINK AND RIDE!!! SLOW DOWN, BETTER TO SEE THE SCENERY THAN BECOME PART OF IT.

NOTICE: SUNRISE TRAIL IS CLOSED. WALKERS ONLY!


 

Ride safely, and be sure you have emergency supplies and warm clothing with you. It can be dangerously cold out there! Frank and Maryann have sold the diner and the new owners, Lance and Dianne, are continuing to welcome sledders for gas, meals, and a parking area.

ITS 81N and 84N: Watch for signs as some routes have been adjusted at AFM’s request. Pop over to 505 at Deer Lake outlet and check out the new bridge we needed to put in. The atv bridge previously there could not sustain the weight of the groomers, and did not have the width to get the job done. This is the bridge made with 40’ steel beams put in place with the invaluable assistance of the Madden Logging crew. The planking is all done, side rails in place.

The diner will be keeping the coffee on and the pies coming so stop on by. Ride safe.

More information is available from Trailmaster Peter Poors at poorsway@gmail.com or 460-4474 (please no calls after 8 p.m.)


Started in 1987, the Airline Riders Snowmobile Club of Beddington is back up and running after a few slow years. Based at the Airline Snackbar on Rte 9, new President Frank Janusz and his wife, Maryann, are helping the club get back on track. The club holds meetings at the Airline Snackbar every second Saturday at 6:30 PM at the clubhouse, 3752 Airline Road. The process has been started to add more trails to the 35 miles now groomed by the club. The Airline Riders have already held one raffle and plan to hold others to raise funds for more grooming equipment. Membership has risen to 90 and is still growing. Everyone is welcome at meetings. More information can be obtained at 546-1178.

View of One of Our Beautiful Trails

We are happy to have long time members with us as well as many new ones, for a total so far of 67. Frank and Maryann Janusz at the Airline Snack Bar are getting things rolling, applying for grants and working with folks on the state and local levels for funding and other assistance.

Our ATV club, the Swamp Donkeys, are delighted that our recommendation for a position grooming trails at the state level was accepted, and our very own David Bridges (trailmaster of the Swamp Donkeys) is now employed by the state of Maine for a portion of the ITS snowmobile system. We are confident he will handle the job well. Congratulations Dave!

The trails we have consist of about 36 miles so far, and we are discussing with the state adding another 20 or so for access to Alligator Lake for ice fishing. Sledders have been enthusiastic and pleased with trail conditions and very vocal in their compliments.

We are lucky to have experienced trail groomers. Frank and Maryann Janusz have made it possible, with help from club funds, to augment the club’s almost 20 year old machinery with a new groomer and sled. The new equipment is a 2010 Skidoo Skantic, extra wide track, with a V-800, 4 stroke engine and a commercial grade groomer with power lift (see photo at center left).
