First Meeting 2010-11 Season

posted Nov 9, 2010, 9:25 AM by Dennis Harris

Belgrade Draggin’ Masters held their first meeting in September to start off the 2010-2011 season. There was only one change to the officers: Dennis Harris was voted in as a Director.  There has been much work completed on many of the trails. Bill Wadleigh and his son Dan have fixed the three wet holes between his house and the bridge on Route 135, so there should be no more emergency calls dealing with those spots this year. The issue at Belgrade lakes has been resolved.  We worked with three landowners to finalize the route of the trail off Long Pond.  It is only about ¼ of a mile from Long Pond to Sunset Grill.  It will be well marked and we’ll install a ramp off Long Pond. Many snowmobilers love to stop by the Grill as it is right beside the trail between Long Pond and Great Pond.  Please STAY ON THE MARKED TRAIL.  Our thanks to Jerry Merrow for following up on this issue. Most of the trails south of Belgrade Stream over to Wings Mills Road in Mount Vernon are bush hogged, cleared of blow downs, rocks and stumps removed and several wet spots fixed.  One bridge over a drainage ditch has been replaced by a culvert, which should last much longer than a bridge - there should be no more repairs needed. There are still a few more bridges that need repair, but we will be ready - bring on the winter!  We have another new Business member, the All Around Fence Company on Route 27 in Belgrade. We are very pleased to have them, as they were very instrumental in making the Belgrade Fishing Derby a great success. Don’t let the name fool you, they also have a very large bait shop.  Check out our website:!  It was set up and is updated and maintained by Dennis Harris.  Thanks Dennis for a fantastic job! 

We hope that you will find time to ride the scenic Belgrade Trail System.
