Treasurer’s Report was read and accepted.

Events:

The last club ride of the season will be, Oct 25 th , at Riverside Farm. The start time 10:00 AM. There will be a

potluck after the ride. Will post on Facebook and send out email.

BOD Meeting:

Ken reported that: there is a new club in Chittenden Co. The wind tower ride in Danville was a big success.

The game wardens have issued 17 citations and 19 warnings. VASA meeting is going to be a breakfast

meeting. They had one in the past. Worked well. Grants not working out. Delayed, need permission before

any dirt can be pushed. Vast doesn’t need this permission, why does VASA? Polaris has give VASA $10,000.

Toward a 6 wheeler, for carrying supplies into trails, and for Danny to get around in. Tyler the trail guide

has moved on. Will not fill position right away. Save some money on salaries. Island Pond Club no longer

VASA Club. They did not go to the meetings. Trails will be taken off map next year. St Johnsbury club would

like to make a connector trail to NH trails. Ken went to public hearing on state land connector trail. The

meeting was positive. People were for it and not against it.

Trail Report:

Riverside Farm is the only trail opened. No one at the meeting has ridden there since trail clean up.

Old Business:

Vasa brought the excavator down, not sure where they did the work.

New Trail: The discussion continued on new trail development that would tie on to existing trails on Dutch

Hill and continue towards Woodlawn. Ken was looking in to landowners to get permission. The biggest

landowner that the trail would have to go across, is not ATV friendly. Leases his land to hunters, and won’t

let them ride their ATV’s. A different route would have to be made.



New Business:

Relay of Life, Tom Witham was 3 rd in donations, $3550. Pot luck ride will be the 25 th of Oct. Last ride for the

club. It was brought up, does anything have to be done to any of the trails for closing. Bob will send Jack

Johnson and email about Ira Trails. Didn’t know what BMAC did in the past. VASA did excavator work

somewhere on the trail, Bob was wondering if they put the new culvert in on Middletown Hill RD. Members

didn’t think they would, they have to get town permission. DeeDee brought in Rutland Herald article on

ATVing. Riding trails in NH compared to VT was discussed. Members felt Vt was behind the times on their

trail systems. Other states are taking advantage of the money generated by ATVing into towns for services.

That was it for new Business. Meeting adjourned at 7:30 PM
