President's  Message

My wife and I met with some friends, Mack and Mary Jean, this Summer. Mack is a Veteran who served as a medic for the Army in Vietnam. Mack and I were hanging out in my garage one night telling stories over some beers, when he shared his story with me of being in the brutal battle of Que Son Valley. It was an amazing and terrifying story to say the least. Even though some 55 years have passed, it was obvious that it remained a very emotional moment for him to share. Afterwards I thanked him for sharing the story, I also thanked him for his service. His reply to me - "Steve - I appreciate your gratitude; but a lot of us just want to be welcomed back. So instead of 'Thank You' , consider offering a 'Welcome back' to a Vet". I listened Mack, and here's a one for you and all of our Vets on this Veterans Day week. We're all able to enjoy this great past time of snowmobiling because of you.

Please support your Club again and let your friends know that Sno-Bees is the club to join. We expanded our membership last year over what we had the previous year. I have heard feedback from new members saying that they joined because of our great trail conditions.  Thanks Matt and Dave for all you do!

$ 20 Monthly Raffle

I am sitting here on Monday night with Dave “Midnight Groomer Guy” Watson going over the few last tickets of our very successful 2022 Sno-Bees $20 Raffle. I also met yesterday with our largest raffle ticket seller, Scott “I Rode Every Day Last Season” Lange and thanked him for all he did as well as all our Official $20 Raffle Ticket Sellers for one heck of a year.  Tickets sold and they sold fast.  There will be three (3) TMA’s awarded as well as monthly cash prizes.  Come to the Meeting and see who gets them!

Trail Support Signboard
We've been working on some nice improvements to the signboard. We added a lit US flag, updated the junction signs, and installed some accent lighting on the board. We're pretty psyched for that first night ride to see how it looks!

We've sent out letters to all of last year's sponsor's. In addition, we've had a some new sponsors we're very excited about: MSB - Mobile Sand Blasting; Central VT Career Center (CVCC); and Sky High Slides.  Thank you all so much for your support!   

Contact us if you are interested in purchasing a space. The cost is $ 250 for a single 1’x2’ sign and $ 500 for a double 2’x2’ for the duration of the season.
