Thanks to all who recently donated a Saturday to cleaning our culverts and cleaning out drainage areas. So important to keep water off the trails. Your efforts were much appreciated!!https://photos.app.goo.gl/F4fi9X2yccVtcKWQAhttps://photos.app.goo.gl/QJWKAeTSxnu37AXe9https://photos.app.goo.gl/AAzCr4y541gemQJU8https://photos.app.goo.gl/2j253649hfQZeZPg6
Hi all ~ Dot and I spent all day yesterday cleaning out culverts and removing trees from the trails. We’re hoping for some help this coming Sat., 5/25 – looking to assemble some crews from 8 – 12. The 4/15 flooding left the trails a mess so we have a lot of work to do in these off months to prepare for next season. If you have any time during the week to help, that’s great too as Dot is out every day doing what she can to maintain the trails and what she accomplishes is a LOT. Thanks to you landowners who took down the trail markers and left them in a pile for us. That helped us a lot!! Thanks all!
Please join us on Thursday evening for our club meeting at the Clear. Come at 6p if you care to join others for dinner prior to the meeting. We’ll be looking for volunteers to attend the VAST workshop on Sat., 5/18 as well trail maintenance crews during these ‘off’ months. This recent flooding was brutal in spots. Remember, the work we do now helps better our bridges/trails for better riding in the winter.
Thank you to all who were able to attend and support our dinner last week. We had a great time, won lots of great prizes and had an opportunity to thank the landowner’s for allowing us usage of their property for riding.

We are currently planning our annual Landowner’s Dinner. Without our landowner’s, we certainly wouldn’t have the miles of wonderful VT riding that we do. Please take a minute to look at this link and think about how lucky we are to have what we do. We’ll have a raffle as well as a great dinner.
This year our Annual Landowners’ Dinner will be held at:
The Clear River Inn & Tavern on Route 100 in Pittsfield,
On SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 2019.
Happy hour will start at 5:30.
A buffet dinner will be served at 6 PM.
The dinner will cost $15.00/adults and $6.00/child age 12 and under. There
will be prizes raffled off throughout the evening.
If you plan on attending please RSVP before SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 2019.
You can call Dot Williamson at (802) 746-8189 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to
reserve your place for this dinner.
Please come and enjoy a festive evening together. We look forward to
seeing you there!
Tweed Valley Travelers Snowmobile Club
Warm weather and rain have taken a toll on the valley trails and other sections as well. We are officially closing those trails in the valley. The only good riding at this point would be in the upper elevation in the National forest section of trails (Michigan area) but even getting there by trailer is tough given the road conditions right now.
It’s been a great season! Still more to do though as all the stakes that are up will need to come down. If you can help, please reach out and we’ll find something for you to do!
And don’t forget the landowner dinner! Plus there’s still time to put in nominations for awards with VAST. April 1st is the deadline.
