We have a couple of projects going on Saturday morning at 8am at the groomer barn. We will be replacing the belt tensioner and pulley on the Tucker. The main thing that will happen is that we need to replace/repair one of the tracks on this machine and it is not a 2 person job. Please indicate if you can come in the comments. We really need your help. Let's get this equipment ready to roll for this winter. ... See MoreSee Less

We want to thank Dan Gurbacki and Dave Woodward for faithfully performing the repairs and maintenance on our machines last night on our Tuesday night work detail. We would also like to thank Dan and Lisa Mezzoprete, new to the sport for stepping up, showing up and helping out with some lighter tasks. As we said before, many hands make lighter work. You don't have to be a mechanic to help. Advertising, computer, accounting, printing, building etc. We can use a hand. We have work details at the groomer barn every Tuesday night at 5:30.A scratch for the itch. www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOTO7-3ih8U ... See MoreSee Less

Many hands make light work. Right now are are asking for as much help as we can get. For now, Tuesday nights at the groomer barn at 5:30 will help lighten the load on the handful of people doing all of the work to get ready for next season. We have big plans for this year and want as many people to enjoy it with us. You don’t have to be able to work on groomers to show up. We have many little projects that need to be done so all are welcome. Message us if you’re coming or just show up Tuesday, July 5th at the Groomer barn at 5:30.256 Johnson Rd.Bergen , NY 14416 ...
