The PEI Snowmobile Excellence Awards & Hall of Fame

One of the more exciting things to take place at the PEISA over the past number of years has been the creation of th e Prince Edward Island Snowmobile Hall of Fame. It was established for the first time in 2015, and since we do not have a building we call our own, the inductee’s recognition plaques will be set up at various popular snowmobile destinations as well as at each of the dealerships.  The entire idea has been well received by the PEI snowmobiling community. 

A committee was formed consisting of well known and respected snowmobilers with their mandate being to identify individuals who have made a positive impact on snowmobiling over the past 40 years by dedicating their time and passion to our sport. It was agreed that each year at the Annual Kensington and Area Snowmobile Dinner Draw the inductees would be announced. It was a very difficult task to choose the original inductee’s, but after much discussion, it was agreed to bring forward four very worthy recipients. 

The late Richard  Bernard, co-founder, dedicated volunteer, and driving force behind the formation of the Wellington Sno-Riders and president from 1989 to his sudden passing in 2010. 

Murray MacPherson who was one of original members of the PEISA. He has served as vice-president and president for several terms as well as a term as president of the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations. 

Gerry Martin from Tignish.  Gerry first came onto the PEISA board in 1991, he was elected president from 1995 till 2002. Gerry was the driving force behind a proposal to allow the Snowmobile Association to use the newly abandoned CN Island wide rail system as part of our trail system, now known as the Confederation Trail.

George Webster, one of the best-known Island racers and promotors of PEI snowmobiling. George once raced against the late Formula One racing star Gilles Villeneuve at an oval track in Quebec.  George also served as PEISA president for several years before entering politics.
