I thought that I would give you an update on how it went. Dave put his Snow Coach on his trailer and his two sleds on another. Scott Ballard and myself helped clean the vehicles and put one of our signs on the truck and American Flags on the trailer ramps. The mice ate our banner so we could not use that. But I think our club quite respectable and the children really liked the snow coach, I heard one say look at that camper! It was a very short parade but the three of us thought it was important to be there. Mike Stewart was heading it up but he had a medical issue so he was not able to help. We all hope he gets well soon!
There is a parade in Shrewsbury this Sunday. It is the first annual Shrewsbury Day Parade. Mike Stewart wanted our Tucker in it but I have it apart for repairs at this time. Dave is going to put his snow coach on a trailer and have that in the event. Mike is looking for members to be there. The parade starts at 11:00 AM. Contact Mike at 492-3312 if you have any questions or can help in any way. We hope to see you there!
The first meeting is on Sept 5, at the Franklin Conference Center in the Howe Center. It starts at 6:00 pm and goes to 8:00 pm. It would be nice to have some VAST members there to voice our concerns or at least to show more than just one person in our club has issues with more regulations. We hope to see you there. If you go to the VAST web site you can see more info. If you enjoy the sport of snowmobiling think about attending.
I just saw a post on our face book page from John Keough saying that the riding is still good and should be good for the last weekend. The photo he took looks really good! Check it out! If you do go out use caution as I imagine that all areas are not as good as others. This is the last weekend before the gates get locked so ride while you can!
Here are a few photos I took last Sunday afternoon. I was trying to lock gates where there was no snow. The only one I did lock was at the Notch Road Parking lot. You can get around the gate with sleds, I saw truck tracks so I wanted to stop them.
We received 8″ at our shop on Post Rd in Rutland Town. Let us know what you have! We will be out packing the trails as soon as possible, but for you powder riders go out and enjoy. The more you pack them the easier for us in the Tucker, not in one groove only though. As many tracks wide as possible.
Ride Safely and Ride Right!
