As we begin 2018, it is with a heavy heart that I write about our friend, and brother, who we lost this past winter, our beloved Trail Master. A cherished husband, and father.
On December 19th 2017, Normand Lapointe lost his battle with cancer, a courageous fight he put forth and goes without mention, he continued to break all the rules. His love and his spirit of passion for the Upper Enchanted area, where he and his wife Lisa spent a majority of their time is unparalleled to many. He loved ATVing, and spent as many hours on a snowmobile. He loved working on the trails, filling his pockets with woodchips, and taking his role as a Trail Master very serious, giving assurance to the safety of all those that wanted to be out to enjoy riding the roads. He was always willing to help out where ever he could and his countless hours donated to the trail work, for the 70 miles that we maintained as a club, will forever be appreciated.
SO.. THE NEXT TIME YOU HAVE A RED SOLO CUP OR A BEER OR AN ADULT BEVERAGE IN YOUR HAND (when your not riding the trails) RAISE IT UP TO NORMAND, AND CELEBRATE HIS SPIRIT, AS IT WILL LIVE ON IN ALL THOSE THAT KNEW HIM.
NORMAND YOU ARE, AND WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED.

PLEASE CONTACT ANY OF THE CURRENT DIRECTORS OR CURRENT PRESIDENT FOR INFORMATION regarding a directors position
Please be mindful that when you are near or around camps, that we are allowed to cross these roads due to land owner approval, and we must keep our speeds down, and be mindful that kids, adults and their pets walk these roads.
Thank you to all that have supported our club over the years
