What is the Volunteer Trailblazer Program?

This program is designed to recognize an exclusive group of snowmobile volunteers who have a long service dedication to the clubs/district in UCSR.  Entry into this exclusive group requires 25 or more years of continuous volunteering to your club/district.

How are we recognizing these volunteers?

Each volunteer meeting the 25-year criteria will receive a blue spring/fall jacket with the TRAILBLAZER logo on the back, UCSR logo on the front, their club’s name, and their first name.

Why are we doing this?

We have not had a coordinated provincial or district volunteer appreciation program since OFSC ceased funding the provincial program over 10 years ago. Clubs have continued with local volunteer appreciation programs but these vary from club to club. The district has taken on the commitment to acknowledge long service volunteers with a jacket where these long serving volunteers can show it off at their club and district events.

How do we know who qualifies?

We will be relying on old volunteer records, good memories, and the ability of John and Bruce to remember most of the volunteers who qualify.  If you were volunteering pre-ice storm then you have been around 25 years.  We don’t want to miss anyone but on the other hand we want the significance of these jackets to be taken seriously so the folks that are selected must have earned the right to wear this symbol of our volunteer pride.  Our research and estimates tell us we have between 125 and 150 long serving volunteers.

What are the timelines?

We hope to present each jacket by September 2022.
