Officials with the Haliburton County Snowmobile Association (HCSA) will have to clear some room in the garage for a new trophy.
At the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) annual awards night, Haliburton’s sledding club was named the best of Ontario’s 17 regional clubs. “The federation says the HCSA was selected for its exceptional innovative activities in participation development, rider experience, volunteerism and partnership development,” President John Enright tells the MyHaliburtonNow.com newsroom.
HCSA’s officials were told last month that they were up for the honour.
He says the association’s Forest and Rail Loop was cited as one of its most notable innovations by OFSC officials. The loop was set up last year as a family-friendly “snowmobile adventure” through the central part of HCSA’s trail system. Enright says the association was also praised for encouraging politicians and businesses to do more to ensure sledders feel welcome in the county and for having a strong building a strong relationships with businesses and municipalities in the region.
Enright notes that the 2021 season will mark HCSA’s 50th.
