It has not been successful yet, but Dale will soon have a Yamaha that is 90 percent Arctic Cat and colored blue of all things! Ben demoed the new Yamaha and can’t stop singing the praises of how it handles and rides. We have not tried to convert the Bombardier owners because you can’t reason with yellow. Like every wiseguy that ever started a political discussion and walked out just as the fur starts to fly… I will let you know that we may have some fun kidding with each other, but we all work well together. If you like to have fun while putting in some trail maintenance time, we have a crew for you. Once you get to know us, the odds are good you will want to continue to be included in our work details. Look us up on Facebook and send us a message. Of course, we prefer Arctic Cat owners because of their exceptional intelligence, but we can make exceptions for the lesser brands. There... I think I have upset enough of you for this article. Get out and enjoy the 2017 season! Ride Right and Ride Safe! Michael O’Hara, Vice President Like us on Facebook Lyndon Sno-Cruisers There have been white flakes coming down from the sky to get all snowmobilers thinking about a wonderful snowmobile season. These are good signs for everyone. Registrations have been renewed for the shiny blue sleds, tracks have been checked, oil and greasing have been done. Now, TMAs need to be renewed. The Early Bird rate was kept the same as last season and is the best choice. Agents selling TMAs this season are LynBurke Motel, Every Buddy’s Casual Dining, Wheelock Store, and NEK Country Store in East Burke. TMAs can also be purchased directly from the TMA agent by mailing a renewal form to Lyndon Sno-Cruisers, P.O. Box 1235, Lyndonville, VT 05851. As always, TMA renewals must have a copy of the current registration. Trail marking has been progressing. With over 60 miles of trails, we always ask any TMA holder to offer help doing trail work. All of the work is done by volunteers including the following this year: President Ken Thorpe, Vice President Rick Ringgard, Secretary Larry Dwyer, Groomer Operator Dave Kaufman, past President Bob Jauch, Rod Dwyer, David Perrault, Al Robertson, Larry Stewart, Phil Bickford, landowner Bud Santo, and a special group, the Lyndon State College Snowmobile Club including Sean Flannery, Bryan McTeague, Nathan Bevins, Evan Levine, and Doug Gifford. Also helping was Mike McTeague. When you see them around the community or out on the trails, please say “Thank you.” One activity that we are planning this year is the Annual Poker Run Fundraiser scheduled for Feb. 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stops include Nick’s Gas N Go, LynBurke Motel, Every Buddy’s Casual Dining, Wheelock Store, Mike’s Gas & Redemption, The Gap, K T Ray’s on the Pond and Lakefront Express Mart in Island Pond, East Burke Market, NEK Country Store, and Burke Publik House. Cost is $5 per hand. Hands should be turned in by 5 p.m. to win the $400 first prize. Prizes will be awarded at Every Buddy’s Casual Dining with a social time beginning at 5 p.m. Until next time, plan to join in on the club activities that will be posted on the VAST website and Facebook page of the Lyndon Sno-Cruisers website.

Newark EZ Riders Well, the time has come and most snowmobilers are thinking about the upcoming season, getting their sleds ready and lending a helping hand with their local clubs. The EZ Riders held a work day on Oct. 22 to do some signing, debrushing and a few other normal fall jobs to get our system ready for the upcoming season. Our trail system is in good shape and as long as we don’t have any major storms, we are all set. I would like to take this time and thank all of our volunteers and landowners who help make our trail system possible. Please check out our website and our new Facebook page for Early Bird TMAs.
