Late Winter 2016 57 WINDSOR COUNTY Cavendish Green Mountain Snow Fleas Like everyone else we are really disappointed with Mother Nature and the way this season turned out. Our Ride-In to Ravens Den Steakhouse on Jan. 23 in Manchester ended up as a drive-in. Club members Dave Berry Karen and Joe Marini Deb and Joe Nardini Tim and Adam Rowe Dan Tiernan Jean and Russ Walsh Karen and Jared Wilson our friends from the Chester Snowmobile Club JoJo and Jim Chlebogiannis Patty and Frank Companik Lee Whiting and Heather Abbott from Green Mountain Trail Andover Mountaineer Snow Riders We held our third Annual Pasta Dinner and Blind Auction on Saturday Jan. 9 at the Weston Rod and Gun Club in Weston. The evening was a great success filled with great food good conversation and a lively auction We also had a guest speaker VAST Executive Director Cindy Locke. We appreciate the time and travel she made for our small club and we enjoyed the opportunity to speak with her candidly during our meeting that followed the dinner and auction. However the biggest thanks and gratitude goes to those who really made the evening possible the local businesses and individuals who generously donated items for our auction. Our club kept the majority of the auction items local in attempts to help our community businesses. With great appreciation wed like to acknowledge the following businesses and individuals Barre Pinske Bennys Power Bibens Ace Hardware Deep River Snacks Donna Shoemaker Edgar May Health Recreation Center Enfield Motor Sports F.

We look forward to another great experience with our 2017 event and hope to see you there Steffanie Baker Secretary Like us on Facebook Blazers enjoyed a delicious meal and lots of laughs. Thanks to Patty Companik for taking the photos. You can see them a few of them in this issue on page 29. We highly recommend Ravens Den and hope next year to go back on our sleds. Businesses are feeling the effects of the lack of snow just as much as the snowmobile clubs. We hosted a Please Snow Luncheon at The Chop House in Ludlow on March 12 to thank owner Mark Williams for his support of our club. Twenty-six folks from the Snow Fleas and the Ludlow Side Hill Cronchers enjoyed the special menu Mark put together for us. As always there were lots of laughs. Thank you to everyone who joined us for lunch Our Cook Shack chef Jared Wilson missed seeing his snowmobile friends this season so he has decided to host Cheeseburger Cheeseburger Cheeseburger at our Cook Shack on Twenty Mile Stream Rd. in Proctorsville on April 23 from 1130 to 230. We will be serving our regular menu of burgers hot dogs chips and bottled water as well as selling club clothing. Come support our club and see why our patrons have named us Home of the Best Cheeseburgers on the Trails. For more info please check our website and Facebook page. Keep calm snowmobile season is just eight months away.
