Here is the story I heard. The person that owns property to the left just as you get onto the lake put up a orange snow fence to keep people from riding over his docks. At some point, someone knocked the fence down and people started riding around a water hole. I can understand not wanting to ride through the hole, and the land owner not wanting studs ripping up his wooden dock. I checked this out for myself, I went through the hole no problem, it wasn't that big. Landowner came out started yelling, guy on sled punched him in the face, knocked him down and kicked him in the ribs while he was on the ground. The landowner was about 60 years old, absolutely no call for what happened to him. The guy that punched him is a gutless turd. Again, this is what I heard around town. Guy was on a Orange Cat, green snowmobile suit.
REWARD!! - The Rangeley Lakes Snowmobile Club is offering a $200.00 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest of the snowmobiler who assaulted a RLSC Trail land owner on Monday December 31st @ 3:30pm. The assault occurred in Russell Cove where the trail crosses Route 4 in front of the ClubHouse Restaurant. The assailant was a male, about 6 feet tall and may have been driving an orange machine. There was a female and several other males in his riding group.
If you have any information please contact Club President, Steve Dudley @ 207-864-5919. He will pass the information on to the proper authorities.
This short trail from Route 4 to the Lake is a vital link in our trail system. Losing it would be a disaster for local businesses and for snowmobilers. This was the most despicable act by a snowmobiler that the RLSC has ever encountered. We want this person punished!
Why will it not surprise me when this guy is found and ends up being a masshole?
