The weather was gorgeous, sunny and in the 40s. The club offered free hot dogs and hamburgers, snacks and other goodies. We served well over 200 people and the event was a huge success. We would like to thank all that attended and those who were very generous in their donations to the club. Unfortunately, our PistenBully was broken down that day, and the trails were a bit bumpy, but we all had a great time anyways. We would like to thank Bruce Jean and his crew at the Poker Palace for hosting and all of the club volunteers who made this happen, especially event coordinator Kimberly Benson Lampert! Great job! By Sonia Koehler The Chez Pidgeon in Norton was the location for the Northeast Kingdom Snow Blasters’ first Annual Calcutta on March 11. There were a total of 98 tickets available and all were sold. Ticket numbers 50 and 100 were raffled off during the ball drawings. The meal for the night was prime rib, baked potato, green beans and a roll. We want to thank all of the vendors who donated graciously for this event. The names of the businesses who donated items can be found on our website and Facebook page. Without them, events like this would not be possible. It’s always nice to meet members of other clubs who attend these events and support the trail system. In addition to the big winners, over 70 prizes were handed out as people were knocked out of the running for the grand prize. The 50/50 raffle and 100th ball raffle were both won by Jacob Myers. He unfortunately had a quick turnaround as the 100 ball was drawn shortly after. The grand winners of the event were Albie Borne and Tyler Bigras who shared the lucky ticket entry. Congratulations to all who came out and thank you for the amazing support, despite the lack of snow! Tyler Bigras, NEKSB President Dale Gilman and Albie Borne
