DEER LAKE Wilf Curlew says if anyone wants the job of president, it’s fine by him.
Curlew has been in that position for the Junction Trailblazers snowmobile club for several years now at the absence of an elected president. For the club’s Annual General Meeting Wednesday night, he hopes to see some “New blood” elected to the board for the good of the town and the future of the club.
“I’d still remain part of the Trailblazers in some capacity, but I’d like to see us get some new members elected to the board,” he said. “It’s no problem getting volunteers if we’re raising money for charity or something, but when it comes to filling positions on the board, it’s a challenge.”
Curlew said over the past year the club has seen some fairly significant changes. The trail through the industrial park needed to be rerouted. A warm-up shelter was installed on the trail and two large signs were installed. The sign that was knocked down early last summer will be righted in the next couple of weeks, he said.
“And we have some challenges coming up that we’ll need good people to help out with,” he said. “There are a couple of positions we’ll need to fill, some people want to stay on, others want to move on, so we’ll see.”
The club will need a sign coordinator and a trails coordinator, positions that could become one depending on how the volunteering goes at Wednesday’s meeting.
The club’s Annual General Meeting will be held Wednesday night at the Holiday Inn Express in Deer Lake at 7:30 p.m.
