Joe Tonso: Thank you!
To the editor:
Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club would like to thank our community for their support during our Snow Cat Groomer accident. We are now grooming and getting our trails back in condition. We would like to extend a special thanks to AXIS Steel for hauling our cat from Slater Creek to Craig for no charge, Scott Cook for his personal donation to our program to help with repairs, Routt County Search and Rescue for getting Classic Air Medical’s helicopter to California Park and the rescue our two drivers with temperatures at 35 below zero, to the Spot Satellite Tracker we carry for sending the signal that we needed help, Wagner Equipment Hayden, Anson Equipment for hauling the cat to Grand Junction and back, Prinoth for repairing our Prinoth Cat, Gregg Knez for hauling equipment to the sight, and the Steamboat Lake Snowmobile Club and The Steamboat State Park for helping us with their groomer equipment. A special thanks goes out to our members who spent most of three days extracting the cat: David Bray, Gregg Brewer and daughter Amanda and her friend, Duane Core, Delbert Knez, LeeLand Mischke, Brad Moore, Jimmy Rossi, Bill Spicer, Ralph Stewart, and Ron Spencer.
This year, a handful of Moffat County High School graduates are setting out to carry on the family tradition. From business to education, these students plan to follow in the footsteps their parents and in some cases, grandparents and great-grandparents.
