if your in a club and you are a real part of things,(and don;'t just pay for a membership due) maybe you can try and talk to the folks that OWN the land and try and tell them HOW the trails should run thru there land??I am in a club and I do help. I'm just sharing my small experience and opinion. That's what discussion forums are for. Feel free to share your experiments and opinions.
This also goes back to my complaints about the way some clubs lay out their trails. If they put a decent radius in the corners, instead of a sharp 90 fucking degree corner in the middle of a field, it would NOT get blown out. But because whoever put in the trail decided that was how it is going to be, people have corner super hard/go so slow, and then once they're past the apex, they floor it to accelerate out of the corner, and blow all the snow out, which exasperates the issue.
If there was some sort of guidelines/standards on how to lay out trails, aka, put in a radiused corner, this would prevent corner blowout/dirt, and encourage people to stay on the trails.
see how that goers, MAYBE it would help, not a bash here, just saying
coming on a forum and saying problems, isn't the same as speaking up at club meetings and making the effort to GO talk to a land owner and try and work with them
like I said, it takes real work to get things done, there can always be a better way, but if your not making the attempts to resolve things and just taking it into your own hands to ride and BLOW Out corners at will, your NOT really helping, but hurting the sport!
facts are facts, YOU DON"T own the land, so you have ZERO right to decide where you can go on it, trails get marked for a reason
and failing to stay on the trails is what causes trails to get lost
its not rocket science!
yet so many fail to get it!!!
lots of time now between NOW and next season, start talking at meetings and push the issue to get to know land owners and offer advice/suggestions on how to save the land owner form more damage
talks like this, are HELP, and might save a farmer some work, but it has to be done with respect, and that's a huge key many miss! IMO
or they wait till winter/last minute like, i to start talks, and farmers like most folks DON"T Like being put on the spot
relationships are BUILT they take time, the more effort and time you put into something, most times the more you get out of it!
short cuts seldom make anyone happy in joint use lands!
