A happening that was a part of this area many years ago, and one that we anticipate will again become and annual event. As a regional Chamber of Commerce our goal is to bring attention to the beautiful area that we call home, through events such as this that will bring new people into this area and introduce them to the things that we, at times, take for granted. I wish to thank the North Country GMC Truck Dealers Association for their tremendous support both financially and advise wise. Without that support, this event might not have happened. Another area of strong support came from the folks at Farm Family Insurance, located in Lancaster, Stan and Sally who were kind enough to allow us to use their land to hold this event on. The Snowdrifters Snowmobile Club deserves and has our most sincere thanks for their help in planning and trail preparation and advise in what was possible and what was not. Tye help that was extended to us from the Town of Lancaster, Town Manager, Police Chief, the Lancaster Emergency Medical Services and Road Department was all a part of making this work. Thank you all very much. It is this fine example of working together that is what will make this area succeed. Again, welcome all and have fun! Donald F. Mooney, Director.
