ASC Update: Trail February 11th

Trail Update February 11th, 2023
During this past week, Lake of Bays and Penn Lake could not be staked due to deep slush but we have had several days of great land trails.
Now there is mild weather and rain in the forecast.
We are hopeful that things will turn around for the poker run on the 18th.
If conditions are even remotely OK, we will proceed with the event.
