BEAVER BANK: It was an exciting day for members of the Driftclimbers Snowmobile club, with snow all around, on Feb. 6.
The volunteer group held an official ribbon cutting of Trail 36, which leads from the Driftclimbers Parking Lot on the Beaver Bank Road out to the Brushy Hill Power Station and will eventually be hooked up to get to the Mount Uniacke Irving station for fuel and food.
This trail was made possible with the permission of MacDonnell Brothers Forestry, through an agreement with Snowmobile Association of Nova Scotia (SANS) and ATV Association of Nova Scotia (ATVANS).
Also, an agreement was made with the landowner and the local clubs (Driftclimbers, Fundy ATVenturers, Beaver Bank ATV, and Long Lake Loggers) to keep it maintained and keep the trail clean.
Many thanks go out to The MacDonnell Family, Meehan’s Garage and Trucking, the many volunteers, and the OHVIF.
In attendance at the ribbon cutting were: Paul and Tina MacDonnell (landowners), David Meehan, Dameon Lowe, Owen Crowe, Rick Baker (all with Driftclimbers); Jerry MacLearn (Long Lake Loggers); Corey and Dillon Osborne (Beaver Bank ATV); and Greg Grant (Fundy ATVenturers).
