Our 40th Year
The Southern Potter Snowmobile Club is celebrating it's 40th anniversary in December 2013. The club was organized in December 1973 by a group of people who enjoyed the winter months and snowmobiling. The club started that first year with 183 members and still today has held a steady membership around 200 members which we have a goal to see around 250 members by 2015.
Over the years the club has maintained, improved, and groomed over 80 miles of trails for your riding pleasure. In 2007 the club replaced the bridge behind the Wharton Store/Tavern with a new 120 ft steel I-beam bridge to replace the failing 30 year old steel bridge on the East Fork Railroad grade to keep the trail to Conrad open. In 2012 with the help of a grant from the Pa Snowmobile Association the club upgraded the bridges at Long and Jordan Hollows with new decking and widening of the bridges so we could use our larger IMP groomer and drag for better grooming operations in that area. Lots of trails have been brushed and drainage pipes installed to better improve your riding pleasure. Trail maintenance is an ongoing job and as help that is doing the work is getting older. Younger and more help is always needed. The club is always working with DCNR to improve trails and conditions such as the bridge we built on state land along route 607 at the bottom of Gas Well Rd. to improve state and local trails. Lots of work is being planned for the future years. Work details are planned the last two Saturdays of the months of June, July, August, and September.

TO ALL CLUB MEMBERS
As the help at the Southern Potter Snowmobile Club gets older and less, the Southern Potter Snowmobile Club desperately needs your help with work details and attendance at monthly meetings this year. There is just a hand full of members that attend the work details and monthly meetings, doing all the work and making all the decisions.
Members this is your snowmobile club, we invite you our members to become involved with your club by attending monthly meetings, helping with work details and the events we put on for our members. Remember if we lose the few helpers we have due to getting tired of no help or for some god forbidden medical issue there is absolutely no one coming along to pick up the void that would be left behind from the lost of these ladies and gentleman which could mean. No more trail improvements, no more club events, no more monthly meetings, and most of all no more Southern Potter Snowmobile Club. It would be a darn shame to see this happen here in southern Potter County. I hate to be blunt but we have to be at this point. We need your help.
Past and present officers have worked hard to get the club where it is today and are working harder to keep the club proceeding forward. All the officers of the club are asking is: if members could just give us one day of help during the summer months helping with the trails or if anyone is interested in helping at any events, they can contact us using the contact form here on our website.
The officers do appreciate the money donations that our members and guest contribute in our donations boxes and along with their dues, but if you could just lend us a helping hand for just one day at a work detail or one of the other events. We would appreciated this more than anything you could imagine.
One further note we also invite any guest of this website to also feel free to contact us if interested in becoming involved with our club, to help further promote the sport of snowmobiling here in southern Potter County.
Thanks Officer’s Of Southern Potter Snowmobile Club
