Landowner Appreciation Booklet
February 10, 2010

Last year the VAST Landowners Committee began a series of meetings to explore ideas on how to thank the gracious landowners who allow us to ride their property. After much discussion the committee decided to develop at great cost to VAST a Value Book of coupons that would benefit snowmobiling and non-snowmobiling landowners as well as the merchants who signed on to the project. Over 140 merchants from around the state signed on to initiate the project. The coupons in the Value Book range from snowmobiling products to non-snowmobiling items such as airplane rides, oil changes, lodging discounts and food offers. Many thanks to the VAST Committee and the participating merchants. Cavendish Green Mountain Snowfleas President and Trails Master Leon ” Woodie ” Woods and Dan Tiernan, trails volunteer and groomer, have contacted and distributed 47 Landowners Appreciation Value Books to Cavendish landowners to date. The remaining booklets will be distributed as soon as possible.
