15th Annual Best Line Powersports/SSRTA Winter Dinner Ride and CMATVA Poker Run

15th Annual Best Line Powersports/SSRTA Winter Dinner Ride and CMATVA Poker Run was held at the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails and Moshannon Community Center on Saturday, January 20,2018. Dave Walker brought a beautiful Polaris General to display outside the facility. Mary Jane Peters brought the 2018 quilt to display that will be raffled off later this year. We got a new corporate sponsor David Gibble Escavation from Potter County and the community center was full at various times. It seemed like the people came in two large waves to eat and fill the center. SSSRT provided lot's of SSRTA clothing for door prizes. Centre County Probation Office provided some very good workers to help at the event Friday and Saturday. Mary Halsnik raffled off a basket of candles and Jim Verost made his wonderful chili. Trilby Mayes and Gary Halsnik prepared the roast to perfection-lot's of nice comments about the meal. There was no need to go away hungry. Sally Holt prepared a couple wonderful cakes along with three tables of other desserts. Thank you to our membership and local people for stopping by and eating a meal or for taking the meal home. Without all the support, there would be no trail. So, thank you all that donated your time to help out for the event and those that supported it too.

Bloody Skillet to Whiskey Springs Connector - 2nd Meeting

DCNR/Larson Group held the 2nd of two meetings last night at Lock Haven University to discuss the results of the feasibility study to connect Bloody Skillet to Renovo & Renovo to Whiskey Spring. After a presentation of the conceptual trail, we were divided into 3 groups to discuss input. Safety, patrols, economic impact on the businesses were the main issues addressed. There still remains a puzzle to connect at Renovo from both sides. We want to thank Steve Seltzer from Steve Seltzer Powersports in Altoona, a corporate sponsor of the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails  for attending this session and supporting the project. Steve provided some good suggestions and we appreciated his input.

Bloody Skillet to Whiskey Springs Connector - 1st Meeting

We had a good informational DCNR meeting last night at Lock Haven University. Larson Design Group presented their conceptual disign to connect Bloody Skillet To almost Renovo and Whiskey Springs to almost Renovo. The puzzle is to link the two systems at Renovo. We had about 150 people in attendance - great turnout. There is another meeting next Tuesday, December 19, 6-8pm at Lock Haven University. We need your help, support and interest at this next meeting. DCNR is asking for your thoughts how to link the two trails around or through Renovo. It would also be nice of more corporate sponsors and business owners to attend and demonstrate their support for the project too. They have alot to gain from this as well. Please try to attend as we need your help!! A few pictures from las tonight's meeting.
Thank you, Larry
