28 Snowmobile VERMONT Magazine The VAST trail system exists due in part to 128 volunteer clubs that work with landowners whom graciously open their land for the activity of recreational snowmobiling. The club volunteers work year round to ensure that the infrastructure is in place with a heavy focus in the summer time addressing any reroutes bridge work or other various trail improvements. The fall season consumes our time getting the trails set up with signage and defining corridors through farm fields and developed areas. Our winter focus is on grooming the trails hosting events and ensuring safety in our sport while we enjoy the outside beauty that Vermont offers. Spring efforts get back to taking down corridor markings and signage as we transition from our winter hobby. Volunteers to the snowmobile community come from many angles helping to make the VAST trail network what it is. The Barre Town Thunder Chickens are fortunate to have some community help from longtime residents Jim and Bev Lawson whom have been involved with the club since it was founded in 1972. Jim and Bev own and operate Lawsons Store located in Websterville and still enjoy visiting with the snowmobile community that they once were actively involved with. In the second year of being founded Jim took on the role of president of the club and was involved with the early days of creating trails which were ridden by sleds that we now only see in museums and at antique snowmobile shows.
