The cash report was discussed and, on a motion by Leslie R., approved.
Grant in Aid- Summer- We have received the UTV reimbursement (60%) from the DNCR. Required lights have been purchased ($534.00). Leslie and April still need to work out the details of the loan to cover the additional purchase cost. A drag from JB in Maine has been ordered and a deposit of $945.00 has been sent. $8505.00 is still due upon receipt. An email has been sent to inquire on its status.
Winter grooming grant- We have not yet heard from the DNCR regarding this.
Fundraising- We will be selling trail sponsorships again. The price will be $150.00 per sign. The signs will be put up as requested or at high visibility locations. One has been purchased so far and a few have stated interest in doing so. Denise will organize this. If you are interested you can contact her at email@example.com. We will also be holding our super St. Patty’s Day raffle. Details still need to be arranged. Discussion was made to also have signs on our groomer drags. Pat will look into Custom Ink and AMI Graphics for sign design. It was approved to allot $200.00 for any set up fee.
Groomers- Gary C. has not yet contacted his supplier to obtain 250 gallons diesel fuel for our tank.
Tucker- Maintenance is still needed for this season. It has been moved to Gary’s from its summer storage.
Tracker- Work is in progress to get it restored for use this winter. The differential is due soon.
