Fund raising- Denise W. has proposed a format and was given the OK to continue. Leslie will work on making tickets and flyers. Tickets will be a donation of $20.00 each with a maximum of 500 tickets to be offered. Larry B. and John M. have confirmed a few stores who agreed to sell them.

Groomer reports- New tracks are installed on Tucker. Maintenance has been done. New cutting blades are installed.
Fuel tank has been moved to Bucky’s house and 500 gallons of fuel received. Electricity has been provided.
Trail reports- There are trees down everywhere from the storm. A valiant effort was made by many members to clear them after the snow storm. Now that the snow has melted it has uncovered all that was buried in snow.
Corr. trail ‘22’- A reroute has been done on the Steele’s old property. A few old signs still need to be removed.
The bridge over Coffin Brook has been redecked. Wear strips are still needed for the main portion of the bridge. They have been installed on the ramp.
Primary Trail 305- John M. has recleaned a large portion of the trail. He will continue. He needs 9 boards for a bridge.
Trail D - A bridge between Rand Hill Rd and Jesus Valley Rd will need to be redecked next year. Due to a notification by a land owner that the trail may be shut down on their property at random times it was voted to pursue a reroute off their property next year.
