48 | Snowmobile VERMONT Club News it’s a great dinner at $15 per couple or $10 for individuals. The blind auction gets pretty heated with items from local artists, businesses, restaurants and realtors. There is something everyone will want. Get out and enjoy the woods, the fields and the old town trails. Stop by a local store and have a hot cup of coffee and a hot cocoa for the young’ns, ride up that mountain that you always wondered what the view would be like from the top of, and finish the day off at that right-off-the-trail restaurant. Reliving the day’s events, tales of old and plans for tomorrow. Till we meet where the snow meets the tracks, Nicholas Baker, President Like us on Facebook Barnard Mountainviewers After two seasons of canceled poker rides, we have optimistically selected Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018 for our ride in Barnard. It’s always a popular event for families and our trails are some of the best in Windsor county. Details will follow on our website, which by the way, is being updated! Trail work in Barnard is just about complete and we will be fully signed when our volunteers return from deer camp. The Barnard General Cavendish Green Mountain Snow Fleas Thank you to all who braved the rain on Oct. 7 and supported our pig roast and Landowner Thank You. We were very pleased that 23 of our landowners were able to join us this year. We especially appreciate the support of the Chester Club members who came for lunch after their trail work, and the Side Hill Snow Cronchers for purchasing “to-go” dinners. Thank you to Bill Gullone for donating the 50/50 raffle money back to the club, and congratulations to Jeff Saunders who won our snowmobile raffle! Corridor 106 on Hawks Mountain received a face lift this fall. Thanks to Fred and Cam Burkhardt, Rich Conte, Joe Marini, Joe Marini, Jr., Joe Nardini, Tim Rowe, Clay and Colby Sides, Dan Tiernan, and Jean and Russ Walsh, both bridges were replaced and the trail from Route 131 to just past the second bridge on the Springfield side of the mountain has been cleared and re-graded. We also want to thank Paul Carbo for clearing our secondary trail from Route 131 to Route 103, and Roger “Willie” Arnow for all his work on Corridor 12 near Colby Pond. Our members are the best! We are hoping for a snowy winter and look forward to seeing you in Snow Fleas Country this season.

Our groomers are father and son, Rob and Josh Tracy, Dana Noyes, Jimmy Powers, Luke Russ, Dean Edmunds, and Ryan “Biddy” Bidlack. These are the guys that make it all happen who have full-time jobs, families, other volunteering responsibilities and endless skills to fix whatever breaks at all hours.
