The saying goes, many hands make light work.
However, it was not light work.
In fact, over 20 volunteers spent every spare moment they had over a two week’s span to construct a new warm up cabin for the snowmobile trails, starting on September 25 and still going strong.
Volunteers gathered together their own tools and met at the Bare Contractors yard to build the cabin.
A group of sledders, their friends and family, and many businesses, came together to construct the 16 by 24 cabin.
Donations for the cabin were generously given by AAA Sand and Gravel, Ram Oilfield Services, SemCAMs, Tim Keogh/EGS, JNT Portable Welding, Jeff Baird and the Alberta Snowmobile Association.
Volunteers included but not limited to were: Harold, Terry and Dennis Bellwood, Curtis Ransom, Mike Ransom, Spencer Vertypora, Cody MisKelly, Rod North, Loewen Schmidt, Jeff Baird, John Tyson, Bill Lanktree, Allan Lariviere, Scott and Vickey McLeod and Brenda Clair.
The new cabin can sleep up to eight people, is wired and insulated, including a loft and a wood burning stove.
It will be located at the Goose Main area, 58 kms northeast of Fox Creek, on the Golden Triangle.
We will update our readers once the cabin is complete and on its journey to its resting place.
