If you must travel on ice, know the waterway. Heavy snows of­ ten cause tee to settle, forc­ ing water up through cracks ln the ice. The slush tee that results ts seldom visi­ ble and you may hecome stuck ln It, A drive track Jammed with Ice ln freez­ ing weather can present a real problem. After pass­ ing through slush, clear the track quickly as possible by tipping the machine on Its side and racing the engine. Ice around beaver houses is usually thin and unsafe. Kember, USE EXTRA CAU­ TION ON ICE. Last winter there were 80 more Sktdozer vehicles smootbening snowmobile trail areas than the previous winter, adding thousands ol additional miles of safe plan­ ned trails available to snaw- mobilers In the snowbelt of North America. This season additional clubs, government agencies, and private or­ ganizations plan to increase the number of miles of pro­ perly maintained trails. The Increase of groomed trails has been largely be­ cause of Snoplan, a concept to provide groomed, sale trails, started by the Skt- Doo Division of Bombardier Limited, manufacturer of the world’s largest selling snowmobiles. This year Bombardier is adding Increased emphasis to the plan tn have more miles of safer' snowmobile trails. Offices ln Canada and the U.S. have been op­ ened with people helptngclubs consolidate efforts. The two Snoplan of­ fices also are working wtth various state and local gov­ ernments to develop ways ln which communities can have groomed trails. The Canadian company spent several years study­ ing and testing their Sno­ plan Ides. The large snow­ falls ln Quebec Province provided exceptional condi­ tions wtth a large number ot snowmobllers enjoying week­ end fun in the outdoors. “ Out studies,” said Lau­ rent Beaudoin, Bombardier president, “ have convinced us that the ke^ to the future of safe, enjoyable, correct environmental use of snow­ mobiles Is good trails. “ Snowmobllers almost without exception stayed on and safely enjoyed the good trails provided for them,” Beaudoin stressed, “ Where- ever they did .this, virtually all criticisms of snowmo- bllers and snowmoblllng dis­ appeared.” Assistance to snowmobile clubs has also come from Skl-Eoo dealers who have been promoting snowmobile ctub membership among their customers. Many deal­ ers are also providing other assistance, even loaning clubs an Alpine snowmobile tor dragging trails, thus ma­ king them smoother and more enjoyable. “ We also kre continuing to work with forestry, park and recreation, other public land managers, other government officials, and private land developers, ln planning and maintaining good snowmo­ bile trails,” the Bombardier president concluded. Accident Reports The operator of any snow­ mobile Involved In an acci­ dent which results in the in­ jury or death of any person, or property damage to the estimated amount of $100 or more must report the matter In writing within se­ ven days to the Division of Marine and Recreational Ve­ hicles and a copy of this report must he sent to the sheriff of the county In which the accident occurred. The operator of a snow­ mobile involved ln an ac­ cident must stop and give his R a i d e r s W h i p I . H . C . LowvUle Academy Red Raid;;- football team cap­ tured a share of the Frontier League “ A” Division ti­ tle with a 34-8 trouncing of Indian River tn the season’s finale for both teams. The Raiders finished with a 4-1 record In League competi­ tion, sharing first place bon­ ers with Immaculate Heart Central and Carthage. Over­ all, the locals compiled a 5-2 murk for the 1973 grid­ iron season under new head coach Neal Aubel. Quarterback Mike Stew­ a r t wasted no time ln get­ ting LowvUle on tbe score­ board against Indian River, bitting flanker Mary Hirscb- ey with a 76-yard scoring strike on the second play of the game.
