Old Business- The club is looking
to purchase chain saws and safety equipment but not with the grant
money. The grant we have was
approved for a groomer, sled and 4-wheeler.
After looking into trying to amend the grant so the club could
purchase the chain saws and equipment with the money we found there was
too much red tape therefore we would like to purchase the chain saws etc
with club money, Members of the club who have taken the chainsaw course
also need to take a course in first aid, CPR and Blood borne Pathogens.
Dave has checked with Ralph Palcovic about this and he is looking into
it. The club is pursuing the
purchase of a Yamaha Grizzly 700 with power steering. This purchase will
complete what we have to spend with our grant money. The club has also
applied for a grant from Yamaha to cover the cost of the power steering.

club volunteered to help, Dave Briot, Tim Wilder, Stephanie and Bill
Knapp. Dave thanked those who helped.

grooming classes, where anyone interested in grooming will get some
training and a grooming policy to sign. The trainer will also go over
accident reports and how to keep track of the trails and the machines.
