Join the Wilton Lyndeborough Winter Wanderers
To the Editor:
The Wilton Lyndeborough Winter Wanderers started pre-1970 with a handful of dedicated riders. Back then, trails were rough and limited and so were the machines. As the idea grew, so did the trail system, and today, we are a member of the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association, including a corridor trail.
As a club, we are a nonprofit, self-supporting organization that maintains nearly 100 miles of trails in this area. The club sponsors a snowmobile safety course and works closely with the community. We clean a section of Route. 31, give away a $500 scholarship, help families, donate to the Wilton Christmas Store, Open Cupboard Pantry and the Gregg Free Library. Our memberships are comprised of both individuals and families who appreciate and enjoy the beauty of New Hampshire’s winter outdoors.
We work hard at maintaining relations with private landowners to continue the success of our club and trails. These trails are shared with cross-country skiers, horseback riders, hikers and snowmobilers. Together, we have come along way at achieving and keeping the woods a nice place to go. With the help of our strong membership base this has been made possible. We hold many club functions such as our annual bake sale in November, a ride in barbecue in February and the NHSA Grass Drags in October.
With the encroaching land developments, it would be a shame to see all this hard work getting broken up or completely eliminated. We are currently supporting the Wilton Conservation Commission on Warrant Article 13. This will secure permanent public access for recreational use of 160-plus acres of farm and forest, and access to New Hampshire Corridor 13. You can learn more about this by visiting fryefield.highmowing.org.
Please help us accomplish our goals as well as others by joining our club. A membership form can be printed on our website wlww.org. If you decide to join, just mail it to us with your dues and we will return to you a club membership, along with a NHSA official membership. This membership will also reduce your costs should you register a snowmobile in the state of New Hampshire this year.
