The Fernie Snowmobile Association (FSA) has again reported “unfortunate behaviour” in regards to its operations, only a few weeks after reporting one of it’s attendants was verbally assaulted.
The local outdoor recreation club is looking for information or witnesses that know about how the Coal Creek kiosk came to be vandalized on Feb. 25, and information on who is removing COVID-19 signage from various cabins managed by the club.
The kiosk at Coal Creek – which is a sea can on a pad – was pushed off its pad and damaged on Feb. 25, requiring the club to spend time and money making repairs.
“Every poster reprint, every machine hour spent pushing this sea-can back onto the pad, the metal bracing and timber required for repairs… these all cost money from our finite budget and ultimately affects YOUR riding experience out there,” wrote the club on Facebook.
“It shouldn’t be down to the FSA having to put body cams on our staff to prevent threatening behavior, cams in the cabins to prevent vandalism and immature behavior, or security cameras up in our staging facilities and trails to keep people from having bonfires in the middle of the parking lot or running into our buildings.
“We all want to facilitate a great recreational experience out there and keep membership / trail dollars as affordable as possible but the actions of a ‘few’ are becoming increasingly costly in dollars, volunteer spirit, and reputation of motorized trail users.
“Please help by speaking up if you witness honest accidents or unsavoury behavior out there.”
The FSA also said that given it was legally required to print and display COVID-19 signage, those who are removing them are costing the club money.
Anyone with information on any of the above incidents are encouraged to contact the club at email@example.com, or via Facebook.
