Mother Nature has blessed us with snow about every week during the months of February and March. Our groomer has been out steady to make sure that our trails are the best for you.
February has been a busy time for our club. Not only for grooming, but we hosted along with the Town of Dexter the 8th Annual Dexter Winter Fest. Activities for the Club started out with a supper and a snowmobile ride-in which proceeds went for the Hal Wilkins Memorial Scholarship Fund. On Saturday, the Club sponsored the Radar Run with the fastest speed of 138.3 by Robert Bower. There were many incredible snow sculptures (1st Place Business/Organizations: Alice in Wonderland by Dexter HealthCare and 1st Place Family/Individual: Pinocchio by Calhoun Family). The Dance and the Maine Military Silent Auction Saturday night was a big success again this year. Sunday was our annual snowmobile parade. Many surrounding Clubs participated either by bring their grooming equipment or dressed up in a storybook character. The winners of the parade are 1st Place Business/Organization - Ripley Trail Riders (Storybook Characters); 1st Place Family/Individual - Martha Jennings & Family (Charlotte's Web); 1st Place Best Costume - Martha Jennings & Family (Charlotte's Web), and Youngest Operator - Tucker Mowers. Then the following week-end the Club sponsored a Drag race with many who participated. The Club would like to thank everyone who made the Winter Fest a fun time for our families and a great success again this year.
Our Club Kitchen has been opened all season by the Browns. They have again made it possible to provide a place for our passing snowmobilers to take a rest and get something to eat.
Plans are on the agenda for the Landowners and Volunteers Appreciation Dinner and Awards that will be coming up in April or May.
Come to Dexter and enjoy our trails. Take our club trails that connect to our surrounding towns of Cambridge and Ripley and you will find the finest trails around.
See you on the trails.
