  • Hammer gave the groomer report, Mark is on vacation. The new 18’ X 8’ drag we purchased should be delivered by the end of the month. This should help significantly. Also, we have been working on a grant for next year for the purchase of a new groomer. We will be able to move back into the groomer barn by November 15th.

  • Hammer and Mark McClain gave the trail report. We still need to go behind the American Legion to check on the condition of that trail.

    • Overall, we should be in good shape for the start of the season.

    • Roaring brook is complete, and French mountain is nearly finished.

    • The club is looking for suggestions for clearing the trails for future years. Possibly making certain people responsible for different sections.

  • Fundraising Committee Report – Albert was introduced as the new chairman for the committee.

    • As always, the committee needs help.

    • The snowmobile raffle tickets are available for sale. The sled should be delivered to progressive within the next few weeks.

    • March 15, 2015 will be the snowsquall party to be held at the longhorn.

New Business


  • Mark McClain informed the club that the million dollar beach parking lot is off limits.

  • The West Mountain parking lot was re-surfaced and came out great!

  • The map adds are almost sold out.

  • Tom Hill from the North Warren club mentioned that he may need some help to get us connected to their trails.

  • The potash road bridge is almost complete.

  • The trail to Warrensburg needs to be discussed. Do we open it but not groom it. We could simply post a sign warning that it is an un-groomed trail.

  • We will still have the gas log books this year, only at the Lake Luzerne and Lake George Stewarts.

    • Simone mentioned is people could bring in their receipts for the gas they pumped into their sleds.
