SVTR members and friends:
Spring is on its way in as winter is hopefully on its way out. I would like to say congratulations to our Snowmobile friends. This year they started a little slow but unlike the past couple years we received a lot of snow and they’re season is ending soon with a great year of riding.
With having said great year of riding soon it will be our turn to again get out there on the trails. This Thursday March 19 is our first SVTR club meeting of 2015. The new 2015 VASA stickers are in and we will be signing up memberships. At this time there has been no change in the fees. VASA fee for VT registered machines is $30.00 + $10.00 membership, and SVTR fees remain $15.00 first member, $10.00 second family member, and $5.00 for each family member after that.
Vermont State registrations remain $25.00 at this time. But may increase to $35.00 around July 1st. I will let you all know if there is any change as soon as it is announced.
A couple VASA events that are scheduled for this year: July 26th is the VASA ride up the Auto Road on Mount Washington. Check out SVTR’s or VASA’s website for info on the rules for the ride and August 8th is the VASA Big Event 5 in Danville VT. More information will be announced as the dates for these events approach.
This past year we decided to try something new to try to entice more members to help work on trails. What we did was for every time you the member sign in and participated on a scheduled work party we log your name for a ticket in a raffle. We drew the 3 winning tickets at our December X-mas meeting. Grant, Deb, and Gary were the three winners for trail work 2014 earning each of them a free 2015 SVTR and VASA membership. I really am proud to say we had 86 members logged as working on our trails last year and I say Thank You very much for your time and effort. Because it was very successful, we will be doing this raffle again for 2015 work party attendees. Future work parties to be announced.
To close I would like to say Thank You very much to our Landowners who allow us ride on their property. Without you we would have no place to ride legal in this area. So please let’s all continue to keep our trails neat and clean.
