Winter recreation 2021
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! Winter is officially here, now we just need more SNOW.
Please share this with all your family members, guests, and renters if you rent your home.
Attached are 2 maps of Winter trails here at Kahler. They are the same Winter map, one is in black and white, the other is in color.
Please, to protect the golf course, do not walk, ski or sled across areas that have been roped off, such as the Greens.
The State Park can only groom the cross-country trails once there is adequate snow coverage to protect the golf course. Typically, this means 18 inches of compressed snow. Our General Manager, Dave Millard, is the one who makes that decision with the State Park. It is also our CAST staff that plows the Sno-park lot here at Kahler. Our staff is here Monday through Friday. If they must come in on weekends to plow, they are paid overtime. Your recreation portion of your homeowners dues helps pay for the State Park grooming.
The State Park will be grooming all of our Kahler trails every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Holiday Mondays. Other Mondays and Thursdays, to keep costs down, they will do limited grooming. They DO NOT groom on Tuesday and Wednesdays. To keep the groomed trails in good condition for skiers all week long, we need residents, guests, and renters to stay off the groomed trails.
This year we are introducing a few wider, Shared-Use Paths.
The objective is to better facilitate movement of residents and guests to attractions within Kahler Glen. Primarily families with small children, pulling sleds and those who would like to snowshoe side-by-side and walk their dogs on a leash as required by our rules. Please use these shared-use paths, not the groomed cross-country ski trails.
These shared-use paths will be created by volunteer community member, Ralph Leslie, using his snowmobile and a drag. He will try to do this on weekdays but will depend on when the snow falls.
At times, the shared-use paths and the single-track snowshoe trails will overlap. That is, they will be one and the same trail.
PLEASE do not walk, pull sleds or snowshoe on any part of the cross-country trails. This includes the grooved tracks for classic skiers and the middle section used by skate skiers. Sinking into the trail with boots (post holing), crossing with sleds and snowshoes can create divots and icy areas that can cause dangerous conditions for skiers, especially on downhill runs. If you must cross, please use a designated crossing path. Volunteers are working on getting the trail markers up. We need more snow so they will stay upright.
Volunteers will continue to maintain the single-track snowshoe trails within Kahler Glen and through the forest to connect with the State Park and Nason Ridge snowshoe trails.
Due to Covid-19 there will be no ice skating this season.
Please never go out on any of our ponds, be sure to supervise children and your renters.

The Twilighters June 1st 2016
We got the Twilight golf season off to a great start yesterday afternoon
with 16 of us playing a Net Chapman Best Ball. The weather was fine and
the mosquitoes thought so too!
Here are the results:
1st Place: Dan Forbes, Rich Sample, Julie Burrage and Kaye Crandall (27)
2nd Place: Jim Burrage, Bill Billesbach, Carol Pierce and Sue Hooson (31)

After golf we gathered at the restaurant for drinks and Gary and crew
provided complimentary pizzas which were excellent! He was trying out a
number of new recipes and I don't think I can choose a favorite...they
were all very tasty!
Wednesday June 29 is the next time Kaye and I are available to organize
a a Twilight and will be happy to do that, but if any of you want one
before then and want to do the organizing for it, please feel free! We
can help you with sending out the e-mail to the list, etc.
Thanks to all that participated...it was fun!

August 5th Twilighters
Hello there Twilighters,
Last evening was quite cool and windy...perfect for the "hot"
competition of the 16 Twilight golfers, and perfect for the yummy chili,
garlic bread, salad and rice dinner (not to mention the chocolate
cookies!) at the Honeycomb Lodge. We welcomed John Ostrem to the group
for his first twilight. He is visiting the Burrages and helping with
construction of a new deck at their home up on the back nine. We also
welcomed back for their second event, the Roberts (Jim and Diane) and
Gordy Strand (Ann's husband).
We played a speed scramble with a max of 3 drives and 3 second shots
from each player and the top three teams ended up tied and the fourth
team only 2 shots back.
Here are the results:
1st Place: Ann Reynolds, Lisa Hanson, John Ostrem, Kaye Crandall (39,
won with a 5 on hole 9)
2nd Place: Jim Roberts, Sue Hooson, Rich Sample, Carol Pierce (39, 6 on
hole 9, beat 3rd place team with a 5 on hole 4)
3rd Place: Dave Reynolds, Ann Strand, Bob Hooson, Diane Roberts (39, 6
on hole 4)
2nd Shot KP on Hole 3: Men-Dave Reynolds, Women-Lou Greenlee
KP on hole 5: Men-Gordy Strand, Women-(name drawn)-Lisa Hanson
Our next event is August 19. You will receive an e-mail about a week in
advance to remind you to sign up.
See you out there!
July 1st twilighters
It was a warm evening. 16 intrepid Twilighters set out for 9 holes of sweaty fun this evening, followed by a wonderful chicken dinner, with sides of pasta salad, green salad and bread. Yum!!
We welcomed Jim Burrage (condo owner at KG with wife Julie and soon to be owners of a home next door to the Reynolds) as a new player.
Here are the results of our speed scramble:
1st Place team: Rich Sample, Dan Forbes, Linda Bockelmann and Kaye Crandall 37
2nd Place team: Bill Billesbach, Dan Bockelmann, Sue Sample and Linda Cook 38
3rd Place team: Thom Cook, Dave Reynolds, Carol Pierce and Ann Reynolds 42 (won in scorecard playoff that went back from hole 9 all the way to 6)

KP Hole 2 (no one landed on green, both winners by name draw): Carol P and Dan B
KP Hole 3: Carol Billesbach 32 ft. 4 in., Dan Forbes 17 ft. 1 in.
The next Twilight is July 15. Following that is August 5, August 19, September 2 and September 23.

Thanks to all involved tonight...it was fun!
Twilighters June 10th
Twilight does Team Chapman
We had 16 players last evening, 5 men and 11 women, and played a Chapman
format with a twist. The two 2-person teams in each foursome combined
their net scores to determine the winners and here's what happened:
1st Place: Linda Bockelmann & Carol Pierce (34), Thom Cook & Hal Olsson
(34) Team score 68
2nd Place: Bob Hooson & Ken Brown (38), Ulla Olsson & Sue Sample
(36) Team score 74
3rd Place: Norm Watts & Sue Hooson (39), Janelle Brown & Pat Watts
(36) Team score 75
Were it not for an unfortunate 2 stroke penalty for hitting the wrong
ball (actually right ball but out of turn), the team of Linda Cook &
Kaye Crandall (39) and Lisa Hanson & Carol Billesbach (37) Team score
76 would have taken 2nd place.
Long Drive: Linda B and Norm W
KP on Hole 2: Both by name draw, Ken Brown and Lisa Hanson
We had burgers and salad at the Honeycomb Lodge afterwards.
June 4th Men's league results
Closest to: Dave Bissonnette on hole #5 & Rob Casad on hole # 15. Team scramble event winners were Joe Turner, Randy Pelton, Cleve Borth & Willie Moore. A fun day was had by all!
May 28th Mens club results
They played a 123, using 1 net on the first hole, 2 net on the second hole & 3 net on the 3rd hole. Repeating on all 18 holes. Bob Hoosen, Terry Gates, Rich Sample & John Van Eyke were the winners with a 119. The second place team had a 123. They had 2 closest to's on the second shot from Joe Turner on hole # 7 & Steve Olson on hole 10. Bob Hoosen & Rich Sample also got a duece. Sounds like a great day was had by all! They will be playing a scramble on June 4th.
The course is in the best shape ever. Although snowfall was low, it did a big favor to our fairways & greens. Mosquito spraying is underway with an all natural early morning spray daily. The driving range suffered from ice buildup this past winter. A few nets had to be replaced but is now open. Stop by the proshop to get a bucket. See you on the course!
