Richardson OwnerBroker have heard many comments from people who question buying their TMAs early and others stating they were glad they didnt. We have even heard of some who want their money back. Folks the trail system you enjoyed last season doesnt magically appear a lot of time and money goes into it. Even though clubs have done little grooming they still face most of the same financial responsibilities. There will always be groomer payments insurance maintenance and storage cost bridges to redeck washouts to repair and more. Revenue is way down from club and VAST memberships. If you dont understand how your club and VAST memberships provide the funding for the trail system dont complain because we have no snow. Please talk to someone who knows how it works. Get involved with your club Gloria Rodrigue Secretary www.orleanssnowstormers.com Like us on Facebook RUTLAND COUNTY Chittenden Dammers Well folks it just isnt happening. I had hoped by this date I would have something more positive to report in the way of snowmobiling. It is what it is and it has been one of the worst snow years on record. Enough of that Lets move forward. In spite of it all the Chittenden Dammers snowmobile club remains alive and well. We will recoup half of our grooming payments as a no snow insurance policy provided by VAST to all the clubs on a year such as this. This is a great example of how your TMA dollars will help perpetuate the sport. Its going to be tight next season but we will continue to Ride Smooth. The groomer received minimal wear and tear and will be all ready to run next season.
