We had a busy fall to get all the final prep work done and ready for snow. We have been working hard to get our First Annual Ride-In Dinner planned and ready to go on March 4 from 12 to 5 p.m. For details, check out our Facebook page. We hope to see you all there. We would also like to thank the two local Lyndon State Students for coming to help get the groomer shed ready for snow. Hope to see everybody out on the trail. Remember to ride safe and respect the trail. Many people work hard and put countless hours into making it all possible.

Corinth Sno-Scramblers Hopefully by the time this article hits your mailbox, you will be enjoying below freezing temperatures and maybe even a light snowfall. We are very much looking forward to this season. We can only hope that it is a season full of snow, cold temperatures and many memories made on the trail with family and friends. In Sno-Scramblers land, we have been working hard on getting our trails ready for the season. The Osgood guys have been busy clearing brush along the trails and installing two culverts on Corridor 5 north of OE 60. Some of these repairs are major work. Glenn McKinley and Ron Garvin have been busy putting out the signs and even repairing some that were damaged in the off-season. To follow up on our billboard project of last season, we are going to be adding a second billboard near the Corridor 5 intersection that heads to the East Corinth General Store. Check it out next to the one-lane bridge to see our newest supporting businesses and companies. TMA sales are in full swing. New this year, we have Corinth Sno-Scrambler club memberships available to purchase, even if you purchase your TMA with another club. All donations from non-TMA club memberships go directly towards our trail maintenance and grooming operations. We have posted the club membership and TMA forms to our website and Facebook page. You may buy a TMA in person at Bliss Village Store and Deli on Main ORANGE COUNTY Brookfield Trail Blazers It’s that time of year again. The Trailblazers have been hard at work this fall. We have completed bridge projects, sorted through signs and have gotten the groomer is top shape. With help from numerous volunteers and wonderful landowners, our trails will all be open this year. We are currently organizing our yearly raffle with more details to come in the coming months. We have new officers which include: President Tyler Wheatley, Vice President Nick Blodgett, Secretary Erin Easton, Treasurer Jessica Kelley and Trailmaster Jeremy Gabree. Kevin Wheatley will be leading the grooming team. Here’s to a hopefully perfect snowmobiling season and we hope to see you out there. “Tater,” Club News Correspondent Like us on Facebook Morrisville Lumber, Menard’s Agway, Leos’ Small Engine, Caplans Shoe & Apparel, Jay Peak Resort, Champlain Oil, Pepsi, In the Mix DJ Service, Morrisville VFW, Butternut Mountain and Vermont Homestead Gourmet As many of our Vermont snowmobile clubs already know, being financially solvent until good winter conditions occur is key to staying in business. We remain hopeful for a good snowy winter. So far, the predictions are calling for a nice one. Without the commitment from volunteers both local and statewide, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish our goals. I would like to personally thank all the members of the Sterling Snow Riders who came together to make this fundraiser a success. Anyone interested in joining the club is welcome. See our club page on the VAST website for club meeting information. See you on the trail! George Chaleff, President Street in Bradford, Wings Market on Route 5 in Fairlee, or at Membership Chairman Ron Garvin’s house or on the VAST website. As we always say, start your snow dances early, cross your fingers and toes and pray to the Snow Gods that we have a banner season of enjoying the sport that we all love so much.
