The Prince Edward Island Snowmobile Association recently lost long-time family member Mr. Gerry Martin of Tignish. Mr. Martin was President of the PEISA for several years and was very instrumental in the conversion of the old CN railway system into our existing snowmobile trail system. Gerry worked tirelessly on our behalf with government in order for us to gain winter access to this major connection of our trail system. Gerry was also heavily involved in the introduction of our Trail Warden Program and a huge supporter of mandatory permits. In 2012 Gerry was honored as the only Prince Edward Islander to be given the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Award Medal for his dedication and support of snowmobiling on PEI. Gerry was also one of 4 original PEISA Hall of Fame inductee’s in 2015. I am sure I speak for all snowmobilers on PEI when I send my condolences to his family and thank him for his many contributions over the years.
