October 29 was our first trail maintenance day for the upcoming winter season. We tackled a section of trail in Bradley Palmer State Park where a rough, sloped stretch would have prevented us from grooming. 14 hard-working volunteers joined us for 4 hours to remove large rocks, rake off debris, dig trenches, and install water bars to prevent the trail from washing out. To finish, we leveled the trail using material provided by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. Now we'll have no problem grooming a trail along the south side of Bradley Palmer.
Take a peek at our slideshow of photos from the day. We hope this inspires more of you to join us next time. It's hard work, but it's also a lot of fun! And it will make for a better winter season for all. Sign up to volunteer below.
Best regards form the board of the NSNA,

Nearly 100 of our friends and neighbors came to our inaugural Friend Raiser Dinner to meet each other, share enthusiasm for winter sports, take part in a raffle for great prizes, and celebrate a successful first season for North Shore Nordic Association's community ski trail grooming program. We have many people and organizations to thank for helping us put together such a fun event.
Firstly, we'd like to thank the Ipswich Ale Brewer's Table for graciously hosting all of us, and for donating a portion of the night's proceeds to help fund our next season.
We'd also like to recognize those who donated our excellent raffle prizes. Thank you to One Way Sport for providing the roller skis and poles. Thank you to the Trustees for offering the one year membership, including the parking pass to Crane's beach. And, thank you to Lark Fine Foods for donating the gift box of handcrafted cookies.
A big thanks is due to Speedpro Boston North, who donated the printing of our posters, and banner.
Enjoy the warm weather, but hope for lots of snow this winter! We'll see you on the trails.
