64 Snowmobile VERMONT Club News Joe Kruszewski of the Deerfield Valley Stump Jumpers snapped this photo of Brian Harty while they were out clearing some brush. Cavendish Green Mountain Snow Fleas We replaced an old bridge our trails have all been cut back cleared and Deereld Valley Stump Jumpers We keep waiting for the dump and wish that the high winds would stop knocking down trees. A few volunteers have been going out in these lousy conditions to clean up the fallen trees. A groomer has been serviced and both are prepped and ready to go as soon as Mother Nature cooperates. We have rescheduled our Pig Roast from February vacation week to March in order to not conflict with what work we need to plan for. The good immediate news is that we have several members that want to help Dick Jewett and Dick Bigwood with the job of grooming our trails. They will be spending time with our groomers to get to know how to operate the Tucker and do ride-alongs. They have big shoes to fill and we are happy to be able to provide Dick and Dick some relief. Our Valentine bonfire ride in is on Feb. 13. The Annual Poker Run is on Feb. 21 and sponsored by the Stone Hearth Inn. Our pig roast on Feb. 27. Joan Choiniere Club Secretary debrushed and we have new signs in place on our trails. Like everyone else we are waiting for snow. We want to remind everyone that Corridor 106 between S 14 and WR 68 is closed this year. Signs with maps have been installed at both intersections and at our Cook Shack. We will be meeting with landowners this spring to investigate rerouting this section of 106. Please stay on the trail and follow the signs in this area. We had a great turnout for this years Christmas party The group included folks who joined the club a week before the party to three of the original group of friends who helped form the club back in the 1970s. We were able to acknowledge and thank Jennifer Stowell and Roxie and Al Davis and to hear their stories of the early days of snowmobiling in Cavendish. The Yankee Swap under the direction of Clay Sides was an entertaining event As Im writing this the snow is finally falling in Cavendish and the forecast is for it to continue for two days. Lets hope the weather experts are right for Snowmobiling is a fun and exciting family activity enjoyed by over four million people across the United States and Canada. The sport is a safe and an enjoyable form of recreation if done properly and with respect. . 1. Never consume alcohol or drugs before or during snowmobiling. 2. Become familiar with the snowmobile you ride. 3. Operate at safe and reasonable speeds. 4. Stay on trails and areas where snowmobiling is permitted. 5. Avoid travel on frozen bodies of water. No ice is safe ice. 6. Use extra caution at night. 7. Keep your snowmobile properly maintained. 8. Become familiar with the terrain you will travel on. 9. Listen to the weather forecast before you leave. 10. Always wear a helmet and proper clothing. 11. Never ride alone. Let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return. 12. Carry emergency supplies and learn survival skills. SAFE SNOWMOBILING MEANSSAFE SNOWMOBILING MEANSSAFE SNOWMOBILING MEANS once and that we get enough snow so we can snowmobile in February and maybe even into March If Mother Nature cooperates the next club rides will be the Weathersfield Poker Run on Feb. 14 and then the Chester Poker Run on Feb. 21. Information on both rides will be on our website Facebook page and our February newsletter. Thank you to the Chester Club for including compliments on our Pig Roast in their Club news in the last issue of Snowmobile Vermont.
