Brooks & Streams are open, trails are breaking down fast, ponds are in very poor condition and there is a lot of slushy areas that are re-frozen and creating dangerous conditions for travel.

KAOS hits the Northern Peninsula
The NorthWest Trackers Snowmobile Club (NWTSC) are pleased to have had the opportunity to have K.A.O.S. visit their club and meet with youth snowmobilers in the Port Saunders area on Tuesday March 19th.
We often have chaos in our lives but this K.A.O.S. is much better because it is a group of youth involved in and enjoying snowmobiling. That is K.A.O.S. as in ‘Kids and Adults on Sleds”. Chad Landes of Wisconsin, US came to the province to visit local clubs with the Newfoundland and Labrador Snowmobile Federation. He is the founding member of the group K.A.O.S. in which youth represent their interests and concerns along with organizing fun events and youth rides. The group operates within the parent level of the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs, (AWSC).
Chad spoke with club and NLSF members and a group of youth that were very keen on learning how to organize a youth committee under the NWTSC. During the session the ideas started flowing for the youth activities and how they could be involved in the club, trail repairs and even to building a warm up shack!!! The NWTSC hopes the youth will continue with the discussions held at the event and with the Club member support have a chapter of K.A.O.S. in the region.
