Membership Report:   Elaine Marcoux   erm@myfairpoint.net

We got 15 renewals and 1 new for our Business and 74 from our members bringing our total to 90 so far.  Last year we had 92 at this time.   I’m having a couple of problems with the renewal form.  Members do not understand it.   Out of State residents are not eligible for Associate Member. Plus our members think one Senior and one Associate Members in a family.  And if you belong to another club this club has to be in enrolled with ATV of Maine first in order for the Associate Member discounted is eligible for you form our club.  If we get our enrollment first, to ATV of Maine the discount for our member will not apply.

Our New Business membrs are Tea Pond Lodge / Sandy Lamontagne and Craig House welcome to our area and our club.

Next ATV Meeting is May 17th,2015

The Camp 2 ATV club in Rangeley is disbanding and is so doing this there will be no ATV access on Main Street at all. Also at this time the Moose Loop is at a stand still untill a landowner problem gets resolved. The trail to Rangeley from Eustis or Stratton is still in effect but ends in the parking lot by Rangeley Inn.
