It’s always a sad day to announce the trails are closed but that day has arrived. This was a remarkable season compared to recent years. Snowfall was adequate from the end of January, all of February, and the first week of March. Of course we could always have used more but it is what it is. Grooming in the last two weeks of was difficult because of hard ice conditions, an unusual plague of groomer breakdowns (7 out of 9 went out of service in less than 2 weeks), and the usual lack of volunteers. A record turn out for the 2/21 poker run was very beneficial to the morale of the club. Thank you to everyone who joined KTSR, worked the trails and groomers, and showed patience for the difficulties we faced. Stay tuned for the announcement of the 12th. annual sled raffle and if the Sno-Show happens live this fall, we will certainly see you there!
