Milestones: Upon receipt of SUP, FSA began construction of the Rolling Hills cabin and the “Doug Dean” trail between the cabins (read more below). November 24, 2011, Due to ongoing concerns with the grooming program, a Grooming Committee was formed. The mandate was to “Receive grooming comments from riders to Paul Kramer (Ghostrider Motorsports), take them to Wayne Stamler (Grooming Chairman) for discussion and action”. The committee was made up of Dan Rotella (Chairman), John Scarpelli, and Roland Green. December 15, 2011, General Meeting: Following a heated meeting between the Grooming Committee and the Grooming Chairman, a motion was made to disband the Grooming Committee. This event triggered a handful of members to set out on their own to to form a second snowmobile club in Fernie. FSA went about our regular business while the Elk Valley Snowmobile Club (EVSC) was being formed, registered as a society, etc. D
