Spring meeting

We have (re)scheduled our spring meeting for June 7, 2020. We will also investigate the options of holding a virtual meeting if gatherings are still not permitted at this point.

Plan is to meet at Glenn’s Truck Service, 1021 Laconia Rd, Belmont, New Hampshire 03220.

Tamworth Cancelled

We have had to cancel Tamworth. On Sunday there was 6-8 inches of standing water on parts of the lake. While the forecast for the race date is great, there’s a lot of warmth before that and the trail may not be safe.

8-dog sled at 11 am
Open and lunch break at noon

Registration is open for Lamoille

Registration is now open for the Lamoille Rail Trail Sled Dog Race. Please see the event page to register. You must also join the club to race (you may do that at on our membership page). Registration will close on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 8 pm.

Tamworth

The Tamworth race has been rescheduled for Feb. 29 – March 1.

Lamoille & Tamworth races postponed

The Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Race has been rescheduled for February 22-23. We realize that this conflicts with other races, but we also need to coordinate with local snowmobile clubs to put on the race. Tamworth will be postponed but we do not yet have a new race date.

Race dates!

We’ve scheduled both our Lamoille Valley Rail Trail and Tamworth races for January. We will  update the event pages and Facebook as the dates approach and will open registration in January.

Let’s hope for ample snow!
