This can only mean that fall is here and the upcoming snowmobile season is right around the corner! Soon our weekends will be filled with trail projects as the Buckaroos of 302 make sure our trail system is ready to go. Our secretary, Taylor, represented the Buckaroos at VAST Annual Meeting on Saturday, Sept. 9. A big thank you to the Lamoille county snowmobile clubs who volunteered countless hours to make the event a big success. Congratulations to our treasurer and trailmaster, Gary Lamberton, who won the Trailmaster of the Year award at the meeting. Gary spends countless hours planning, organizing and volunteering on our trails every year. He makes sure that the club maintains good relationships with our landowners and uses his own vacation days to sign and flag trails. He is also the club mechanic and keeps our six-wheelers and club sled in top shape. Without him, I can honestly say that the Buckaroos would no longer exist. He is the glue that keeps the club together and he wants nothing but the best for the club. He is a model snowmobiler and deserves to be recognized for all he does for the club, the sport and for VAST. Congrats Gary! We had the first snowmobile meeting of the season on Friday, Sept. 22 where we talked about upcoming events and trail projects. The first trail project of
