Paudash Snowmobile Club

Paudash Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club
The Paudash Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club was established by a group of local snowmobile enthusiasts around the Paudash/Eel's Lake area in 1976. These pioneers had a vision of what snowmobiling could become and set about to establish a network of trails.. As the time progressed so did snowmobiling popularity. In the early 80's, Clyde & Isabel Saunders, avid snowmobilers) donated the materials required to build a clubhouse, a place, Clyde & Isabel reckoned, where snowmobilers on the Paudash trail system could rest, chat with other snowmobilers and get warm. Paudash leased a parcel of land and the Saunders' dream became a reality. Over the years there have probably been thousands of snowmobilers who have enjoyed the generosity of Clyde & Isabel at "Saunder Inn" as the clubhouse is affectionately known.

Boating In The Kawarthas

  All operators of craft under 4m in length (including personal watercraft) are required to carry proof of competency while on board. Proof of competency can take 1 of 3 forms:

• proof of having successfully completed a boating safety course in Canada prior to April 1, 1999;
• a pleasure craft operator card, which is issued following the successful completion of a Canadian Coast Guard accredited test;
• a completed rental-boat safety checklist (for power-driven rental boats).

The operator card is good-for-life. Boaters can obtain their card after receiving a mark of at least 75% on a Canadian Coast Guard accredited test. Boaters have the option of taking this test without first completing a course. An operator card or equivalent issued to a non-resident by their state or country will be considered as proof of competency.
