Karen Marini, Membership cavendishsnowfleas.com Like us on Facebook Chester Snowmobile Club Summer is here, and while the riding season is over, there are still plenty of snowmobile-related activities going on. We are planning our work projects, including more bridges to rebuild, one of which is over 65 feet long. We are also exploring our options to purchase a new Tucker. We are also already working on scheduling our snowmobile safety classes. For many of us, snowmobile season is always on our minds. The Chester Snowmobile Club wants to thank the many volunteers who helped us with all our work projects last season. With the increase of social media information, we were very fortunate to have many more folks get involved in our club activities. Our last meeting of the season was held in May. During that meeting, we By Patty Companik We were hoping for enough snow on the trails for folks to ride to the Stone Hearth Inn for the Chester Snowmobile Club’s BBQ Pig Roast, but unfortunately it had to be a drive-in event this year. The Stone Hearth Inn is a popular destination in Chester for many snowmobile riders. The trail is located near the Chester parking lot on Corridor 12 and goes directly to their back door. The folks from Enfield Motor Sports donated the pig for the day’s event which was very generous of them and much appreciated by the club! The BBQ Pig was delicious and over 50 people stopped in to enjoy it along with some traditional sides.  We would also like to thank the owners of the Stone Hearth Inn, Sheldon and Francie, for hosting our club event at their business location and serving our guests. It is events like this where folks get together and eat, laugh, and just catch up. “Where did you ride this season? How were the trails?  What trail maintenance plans do we have coming up this summer?” There is lots of snowmobile talk and just general conversations about food, family, travel, projects and friends. We would like to thank the clubs who came out to support us for this event. There were folks from Woodford, Townsend, Orleans and everywhere in between.  Snowmobiling is about the journey and the destination but it is also about the community of folks who share a common interest. It is events like where we share our experiences, celebrate the camaraderie amongst riders and have an opportunity to develop new friendships. Chester Snowmobile Club BBQ Pig Roast
