  • Don and I recently joined Breezy Acres at the Sportsman`s Show in Augusta.
  • Yesterday Elaine Marcoux and I went to WSKI TV Station at Sugarloaf to promote our club. All went well and they also used films of a previous trail ride that they had filmed at another time. We appreciate that we can advertise our club at no cost to us. They continue to run the films at random times, good publicity for us. Thank you WSKI!
  • As you can imagine I`m very anxious for the snow and mud to go, I`m ready to start my job.
  • Map Discussion – Color copies would be 50 cents at the Town Office.  $690 for 1000 copies at Wilton Printer  Black and White copies are free as a donation from the Town.  Breezy Acres investigated a 70 cent price per copy for labor only.
  • We now get our applications, newsletter and map copies free from the Town Office.
  • Sportsman Show was a success.  Many people stopped by to talk about our trails.
  • Repair of the excavator will be completed in 2 weeks.
