Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

The Volunteer Appreciation Dinner was held at the Moose Lodge on Friday, Jan 12. The dinner was well attended. Thanks again to all the volunteers who help make things happen.


Trail Equipment News & Grant Update

Since there isn’t any snow to groom, club members are working on updating the second drag. The 14′ drag is ready for action if needed. Work on the new tractor included installing strobe light, steps, adding a buddy seat, and checking over making sure couplers, lights and other things are in working order. Thanks to Randy and Jerry Velishek on the template for the mounting bracket, it was spot on!

Thanks to Greg Barta Machining in Warsaw for work on the mounting bracket. The Push plow mounted to the 6330 tractor works as it should.


Grant writing is underway for adding tracks to the 6330. The final draft will be sent later this month.

1st benchmark on the way soon, will have the 2nd signed and sent in next week.
