NEW MAPS FOR ORLEANS COUNTY By Karen O’Donnell The Orleans County Snowmobile Association was one of two beneficiaries of USDA-RDBG marketing funding to promote recreation at the Top of VT. OCSA partnered with Top of VT to combine map data to create an area map for snowmobile visitors to easily access services and area assets while enjoying the 450 miles of terrain in the county. Top of VT Collaborative Map Project identifies OCSA trail network, business locations and other recreational attributes in the Jay Peak Region. Maps can be found electronically at www.orleanscountysnowmobilers. com/county-map.html or www., area businesses, Vermont Welcome Centers on I89 and I91 and in the Hanover/Lebanon, N.H. area. If you would like a copy of the printed map, please e-mail or Karen@ In addition to the print and online maps, 70 map signs were also placed at trail junctions within Orleans county for quick reference while on the trails. Easily find dining, fuel or snowmobile services closest to your location at these junction signs. Visitors may also access the online map to guide you to these services while traveling around Orleans county. Each of the following local clubs played an important role in the partnership’s success. Country Riders Snowmobile Club, Craftsbury Snowmobile Club, Drift Dusters Snowmobile Club, Glover Trail Winders, Hazen’s Notch Snowmobile Club, North Country Mountaineers and Orleans Snow Stormers assisted in identifying sign locations and installation. SLED RAFFLE WINNER Dana Dix, 68, is the winner of our sled drawing from all submitted 2017 Early Bird TMAs. He has been riding since he retired from military service in 1971 and designed the original patch for the Jacksonville E-Z Riders snowmobile club. He has a camp in Morgan and maintains membership with the Brighton Snowmobile Club and the Jacksonville E-Z Riders. Congrats Dana! Enjoy your brand new Polaris! VAST News SPECIAL OLYMPICS & VAST CLUBS JOIN FORCES FOR FUNDRAISING By Roger Gosselin Sometimes we get so caught up in “friendly discussions” about who has the best brand of snowmobile or who has the best trails, that we often forget about how lucky we are to be able to ride. Directors for Law Enforcement Torch Run/ Special Olympics held a coin drop and 50/50 raffle in conjunction with the First Annual Northeast Kingdom Poker Run on Jan. 14. Thanks to Dave Dubriske for giving Special Olympics athlete Dylan Fortin the ride of a lifetime!
