Whats New!

While things may have been quiet on here over the Winter, we have been busy.  Since the AGM a Club Constitution has been developed to support the Bylaws that were approved.  These are HERE.  Going forward the Club Board will be comprised of an Executive Board and coordinators.  The constitution provides the operational framework.  The Board members are posted HERE.

As we look forward to activities for 2021, there are unknowns, but we are planning to hold the club activities that we can within the framework of the SCA Return to Play, along with the Provinces public health restrictions.  Hopefully, there is some clarity on the situation soon and we can post a tentative plan for 2021 by mid March.

Registration is now open for the year (LINK) and membership will be required to participate in all club activities.  Membership is important for the club.  Memberships help assist us with obtaining grants for expenses related to trail maintenance.  Membership also provides you with insurance for club activities. This year we are offering an option for members to extend their coverage for training outside the club sanctioned activities.  The extended coverage cost is $20.00 for the year and can be purchased during registration.

See you on the road or trails!

Buffalo Pound PP Trail Maintenance

Today the Moose Jaw Pavers started the trail maintenance to support the Parks ongoing work. Thanks to Tim, Ray Dave and Rob for coming out and getting a jump on the needed trimming. Club volunteers were able to trim the following:

  • Twister (upper and lower sections)
  • Junkyard
  • 1/4 Mile
  • Pick-up Sticks
  • Thank you Nature
  • Rutledge (upper and lower sections)
  • Weeping Fee
  • Noser (to the turn off to Roots)

Some areas the grass was getting pretty tall and some of it may be on the trails for a couple days until it dries and blows off but with +32°C today it was drying pretty quickly!

More is maintenance is planned for Wednesday and will update the list. If you are interested in helping out please reach out to us via email (moosejawpaversatgmaildotcom).
