Well, it has not been the best of winters this year in the Grayling area. As of this writing, most of our trails are down to ice and dirt. We were forced to cease our grooming operations on the 21st of February due to the lack of snow. You may have noticed that this is the first newsletter that you have seen in a while. There just has not been much going on around our area to report to the general membership.
Our Groomer Drivers have been keeping the trails in our area in pretty good shape considering what they have had to work with. The guys have logged 640 hours of driving time as well as 4570 miles of grooming so far this season. Fuel cost stands at approximately $6800.00 and maintenance hours stand at 94. We wish to thank both the drivers as well as the maintenance guys for all of their efforts so far this season. Hopefully, Mother Nature will send some more of the white stuff our way and we can add to these totals before the season is over.
We do want to announce that at the General Membership meeting in January, Art Fissette was re-elected to the AVSA Board of Directors. Art has been a long time member and continues to be a great asset to our organization.
We also would like to thank all of you who have sent in your memberships to join the AuSable Valley Snowmobile Association. Whether you are a family or a business, we appreciate having you as members of our club.
Our Next Two General Membership Meetings will be on Thursday, March 4th and Thursday, April 1st. The April meeting will be our last one of the season. Both of these meetings start at 7:00pm and will be held upstairs at the Ramada Inn. Our meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend.
