We cant say thank you enough to everyone that came out Sunday to help with trail maintenance, we had such a big turn out and accomplished so much, we couldn't have done it without all of you , from all of at SMATV Club we thank each and everyone
All new officials were elected for the new year. With all new officials we are hoping to continue the legacy of the Hatfield / Ridlon Rd Trails.
Keep an eye out for the new online link for membership and merchandise purchases.
Tonight the club voted unanimously to relinquish stewardship of our section of the CMP Powerlines that run from Lebanon to Waterboro. This was not an easy decision, as many of our founding members had invested literally over 30,000 man hours building the trail from scratch almost two decades ago. Unfortunately, our current volunteer pool is getting older and decreasing in size, and the amount of work needed to bring the trail up to state specifications is beyond what we are capable of.
We do not know what the future holds as far as the trail. It is possible another club may pick it up, or it may be closed to ATV traffic permanently.
As it stands, currently, the trail is closed and it will remain that way until further notice.
With all that being said, the club is in desperate need of volunteers for our board of officers as well as volunteers to help maintain our Hatfield trail system for next year. We are in real danger of the club shutting down completely, as we are not getting enough volunteers to help us, despite a robust membership . We understand that everybody is busy, but even one day a year, helping us maintain the trails can make a world of difference! Our next meeting will be in March where we will be accepting nominations for our officers and Board of Directors. We hope to see you there!
Trail Work Hours also count as community service hours for high school students. Contact a club official for more information.
