SVTR April Meeting Reminder

Hello SVTR friends and members,

This Thursday April 19 will be the SVTR April meeting. As usual, the meeting will start at 7pm at the Newbrook Fire Station on Rt 30 in Newfane, VT.

We have a lot to discuss at this meeting as we recently learned that the property on which the SVTR trails have been for the last 12 years has changed hands and the new landowner is not allowing us access for insurance reasons. We are actively looking fo access to other areas and will take any and all help we can get with that task.

Membership materials are available and an SVTR membership will still allow you to ride other VASA trail systems while we regroup and forge ahead here in southern Vermont. We will sign up members at the end of the meeting. If you plan to join, be sure to bring a copy of your valid state ATV registration and a check or cash.

As always, the meeting is open to the public.

We look forward to seeing you!

-Bill
President & Webmaster, SVTR

SVTR Trails are now open.

Hello SVTR Members,

After a long wet spring, we are finally able to open our trails for the season.  There are still some wet areas that we need to take it easy on but for the most part, the trails are in pretty good shape.  Very soon we will need to focus on cutting back brush along the trails as things are really starting to grow now!

We were delayed in opening the trails for a few additional days as the landowner wanted the gate at the Joy Brook landing repaired before we opened.  Lloyd was able to arrange for a welder to come out and do the repairs for us on short notice.  Now that the gate is functional once more, the landowner is asking that we make sure the gate is closed when we leave the landing.  He has been checking it regularly and has found it left open frequently.  Please make sure to close the gate when you leave.

We also received a complaint from the land owner last week.  Someone has been tearing up the field at the rifle range.  The rifle range is not part of the trails and there should be nobody riding in that field.  Please stay on marked trails.
