Regretfully, the time has come to speak out
and tell the true story about Jim Meyer.
Enough is enough!

As most of you know from early last season,
Jim Meyer is not a part of our club anymore.
He quit, following the removal of a post he made
on our website that was slamming the officers and board.
He was told at the time that it was not acceptable.

Following this, Mr. Meyer quit the club and swore (literally)
that he would do anything and everything to destroy the
club and its trail system.
He has followed through on his threat.
We have been enduring a relentless attack
on the club and trail system as well as us
He has used every possible means to attack.

We have a transcript of the sound recording in which
Mr. Meyer stated that:
 “By removing my post from the web page, you have just started
a war between me and the club. You guys are fu##ed,…. you are going
to lose trail. I am going to start making some phone calls….
statewide, county wide, your going to lose trail….”
We also have hundreds of pages, documenting his efforts to
undermine the trail system and his personal attacks
on people on the club Board.

His STATED goal is to Destroy the Hilton Sno-Flyers!!
This has been an ongoing series of attempts to cause
us to lose trail permissions, cause issues with NYSSA
and our Monroe County Sponsors.

Recently, Mr. Meyer has been approaching current
members of the club, trying to rally support
for his side of things and to force an “apology” from
President Tom Francis, Vice President Marty Sauer
and the entire Board.
Please be clear about this- The club or its Officers

This situation is being portrayed as an argument.
It is not an argument – it is an unprovoked attack.

We will not accept or condone any contact
with a disgruntled former member who has daily,
for over a year, worked to destroy us.

We have done nothing to keep this relentless
attack going!
We originally felt that taking the high road
and ignoring the ongoing insults and efforts to
hurt the club was the best course to follow.

If you are approached by Mr. Meyer and asked to
help to end this dispute, do not participate!
Remember, if you are involved in working to have
local trails, this man is working against you!

If you are uncertain about the facts as stated above,
if you would like to hear the recording of Mr. Meyer’s
vehement promise to destroy the club or you
would like to see the 2″ stack of printouts
that document this 15 month long ordeal,
please contact us.

Tom Francis, HSF President
Marty Sauer, HSF Vice President



It is still muzzleloader season and much of our trail is hunted!

If you are riding a closed trail it is considered trespassing and you will be caught.

Not all of our trail system is marked, the conditions are not safe.

Many landowners are very upset seeing snowmobilers while they are still hunting.
