 OUR GROOMERS IN ACTION

A DAY OUT WITH THE GROOMER

  (Click on the pictures for a larger image.)

Tom Reed climbs aboard the

Tucker Sno Cat 2000.

The trail ahead ...

... the trail behind in the rear view mirror.

The control panel

Operating the groomer takes a lot of skill. The driver has one hand

on the steering wheel and an eye on the trail ahead.  At the same

time, the other hand is on the control panel as he keeps an eye

on the drag and the trail in the rear view mirror!

    

 

One of the rewards of grooming is the chance to see some spectacular scenery!


Rainy Day Grooming

Tom Reed and Fern Dumoulin were all smiles as they headed out to groom the trails on December 17, 2003.

How can you tell these guys love to groom?!

Unfortunately, the skies opened up and after a couple of hours of steady rain the snow was getting soft and slushy.  They had to turn the groomer around and take it back to its winter home at S.W. Young, Inc. in the Industrial Park.

 

 

Done for the day .... Tom appears to be asking

the heavens, when will the rain stop?

 


Ivan Arsenault

Ivan is our Groomer "Emeritus."  Although

no longer able to groom, he has earned

the life-time title of Groomer because of

his many, many, many years of service to

the Rumford Polar Bears Snowmobile Club.
