The club has been busy since the last newsletter arrived. First, we held our club elections at our annual meeting on April 1. The club elected two new members to the board of directors and myself as the new president. Adam Levine of the Valley View Saloon and Mark Zanelli joined our board of directors. Both of these guys have been contributing to the club for so many years and we’re excited to have them on the board for this upcoming season. During the meeting, we voted to raise the club dues up $5 to $25. This is still under the $30 that VAST charges through the online TMA process. Our goal is to begin preparing for groomer maintenance to our aging PistenBullys. We also committed to having all new intersection signs that comply with VAST requirements, in addition to numbering all of our bridges with new aluminum signs. We had a record turnout for our annual Landowner Appreciation Dinner held at The Roadhouse in Wilmington on June 10. Erik and his staff did an amazing job hosting nearly 80 landowners and their families. As far as trails and upkeep, we’re looking to redeck about six to eight bridges this season. There are a couple of larger ones we’ll need to do in WINDHAM COUNTY Worcester Ranger Sandy Vitzthum throws candy from the club’s Fourth of July float.
