Trail conditions
Posted on: Wednesday June 11, 2014 - 2:46 pm CDT

Well now we are into a another new riding season thought d just send out a updated trail conditions report for the Sandilands area. Many of the trails are slowly getting reopened after the 2012 snow storm in the fall . But a great deal of the trails are still completely plugged up of are semi passable , so please use caution in the area . Since many trails are still closed there is a increase in traffic on the open trails , so be mindful of oncoming traffic and other user groups using those trail (ei: horseback riders etc ) 

 

 

Another issue that conservation and firecrews are worried about is the amount of "fuel" from all the deadfall . They would like me to convey to the riders to please ensure that all debris it removed from the exhaust system and if any " lunch " fires are made to please ensure that they are completely out before leaving the area . And there are now many areas that are being logged out so be mindful of changing trail conditions from week to week . 

 

Have a good ride everyone and take care

Well here we are finally, riding season! Yes that snow melted, now if we could just get some warmer temps! We have just sent off our club events calendar to our members and it is pretty busy. And of course there are still a lot of trees to open with all the fallen trees from the 2012 fall snow storm. I'd like to thank all those that have helped clear trails from our members, other user groups club members and the single guy who just wants to help. Cheers!  

 

Here are a couple of links to who the Sandhogs are, one is a recent article in the Riders West Magazine and the other is from a TV show our club did with the Weekend Adventure TV show from Kenora, last year. Enjoy.

I hope they work. If they don't just email me and I can foward the links another way to you. 

 

Thanks Gary. 


  

Woodridge Sandhogs 2014 Season
Posted on: Saturday March 22, 2014 - 10:42 pm CDT

Well our 2014 riding is coming soon, yes spring will come and hopefully summer! This winter has been a long and tiring one for sure. Hopefully we have a great summer to make up for all the cold and snow. 

 

This year our club will be involved in several local events around the Woodridge area. And of course we will be helping volunteer at this falls Ride for Dad again. And again we will be out a lot helping open up trails that are still closed in from deadfall from the 2012 fall snow storm that devastated the area. The trail clearing is very hard work and i'd like to thank all those that spent hours, days and weeks cutting trees to open up trails for people to ride. I hope this year we have a calm summer so that we can enjoy our sport and make new friends. 

 

Hope to see you on the trails. 

 

Gary. 

 

Sandhogs Club President. 


  

2013 season
Posted on: Saturday March 16, 2013 - 1:26 pm CDT

Well a new year and a new season for our club . 2012 was an eventful year for the Sandhogs with several club rides , Carrick Days parade , Happy Pines grand opening and our course our year end potluck dinner and ride weekend . Last year also saw many areas that were in need of deadfall clearing and trail grooming in the town of Woodridge . We also had a late fall snow storm in October of last year which has devistated the area with many trails being completely inpassible . Our club would like to please remind ORV riders to be very careful when riding in the Sandilands forest as there are many hazards under the snow , trees across the trails and many trees that are hung up and may fall at anytime . 

 

 

Moving forward to the 2013 season we are now in a membership renewal . We would like to thank our current members for all their efforts and we are looking forward to seeing new members joining the Sandhogs . This year we will again do several club rides ,join the Carrick days parade  , volunteer with the St.Labre 200 , have our annual potluck dinner ride weekend and of course start wth trail clearing from last years storm . 

 

We hope to see new people on the trails and hopefully some new members as well . Have a great 2013 riding season everyone ! 

 

President of the Woodridge Sandhogs  

 

Gary . 


  

Storm Damage to the Southeast
Posted on: Monday October 8, 2012 - 9:30 am CDT

The Sandhogs would like to let riders know to use caution if they are venturing out on any trails in the Southeast part of MB. Many areas around Sandilands Provincal Forest , Falcon Lake , Westhawk lake and north to La du Bonnet have been hit hard with the snow storm and strong winds . There are thousands of trees down across the trails , throughout the forest and many are damaged but have not fallen yet . Many trails are near impassible and have many dangers . Please be mindful when travelling in these areas with your ORV's. Clean up of trails will take months and months of volunteer work to make them passable again . If riders can volunteer anytime to help with clean up please contact your local Atv Club , Snowmobile Club or Ski Club , as I'm sure the help will be much appreciated once clean-up efforts begin , after power is restored in the affected areas .  

 

Thanks  

 

Gary Hora . Club President .
