In the News
The Lee Center Trailbusters would like to thank all
of our landowners for their generous cooperation in allowing us to have
trails travel across their property. Without their support, it would
not be possible to have these trails.
The Trailbusters will be sponsoring a snowmobile safety course,
scheduled for Friday, December 6th and Saturday, December 7th at Lee Town
Hall. Friday class hours will be from 6 pm
to 9:30 pm and Saturday class hours will be from 9 am to 1:30 pm.
You must be pre-registered to attend. To
reserve a seat, contact John Beggs at 337-0359 as soon as possible.
Students must be 10 years old by course completion date.
Youth, ages 14 through 17, may operate a snowmobile without adult or other
supervision if they have completed a snowmobile safety course. Those who
have not completed the course, may operate a snowmobile if accompanied by
(within 500 feet of) a person who is at least 18 years of age.
Youth, ages 10 through 13, may operate a snowmobile if they have completed a
snowmobile safety course and are accompanied by (within 500 feet of) a

Children less than 10 years old, or less than age 14 without a safety
certificate, may operate a snowmobile only on lands owned or leased by their
parent or guardian.

Job well done!!! They completed the bridge project in
one day this past Saturday (September). Thanks so much for volunteering your
time. It is greatly appreciated.
