56 Snowmobile VERMONT Club News WINDHAM COUNTY Deerfield Valley Stump Jumpers We want to thank you for supporting our trails this year even though there was no riding. There is always next year We also want to thank you for supporting our Annual Pig Roast which was hosted at the Matterhorn Inn. Joe and Wanda were once again most generous with their donations. The highlight of the Pig Roast was a presentation to our former president Fred March who served for over 14 years. His wife Trish was also acknowledged for her years of dedication as the club secretary. Gail S Kotowski Media Director www.dvsj.com Like us on Facebook Jacksonville E-Z Riders Like most clubs around the state we lacked the needed snow to get our trail system open this season. The beginning of January showed promise with a solid base of four inches and things started to look promising. Our hard-working volunteers were able to get several needed work related items completed during the month of January even with the limited snow cover. During the late fall and early winter our two drag sleds and drags were completely gone through by our chief mechanic Ray who always seems to have a fix for whatever needs fixing. Several improvements were also made to our groomer shed and we thank Craig and Carl for taking the time to do so. Our club event SNOWFEST was a huge success even though Mother Nature did not bring us the snow to be able to provide all we had planned. We would like to give a very special thanks to all our sponsors for all their efforts and great raffle prizes Landmark Trust USA Mount Snow Winnelson Cherry Creek Sales Diva Snow Gear Jacksonville General Store Southside Sales Hunters Recreational Big Y Supermarket Shaws Applebees 99 Restaurants Fat City Motor Works A to Z Snowmobiles WW Building Supply 1st Stop Gas Station Spoonwood Cabins and Jacksonville EZ Riders Snowmobile Club. We are already looking forward to SNOWFEST 2017. With spring around the corner we are still looking for that big storm that might yield enough snow for some late season riding. We would also like to thank all our volunteers for their efforts help and time along with our wonderful landowners that provide the land our trail system runs through. Our new club president Jackie Bemis has settled into her new position and our core club members have been happy to support her efforts. In many ways it was a very good season for us even without the main ingredient of snow being in the forecast on a regular basis. As a club we were able to accomplish many things that were definitely needed and well received by all.
