West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association Announces 2011 Landowner Appreciation Draw Winners

As the board of directors of the West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association gear up for another winter of fun on the trails, they are pleased to announce the winners of the 2011 landowner appreciation draw.

Landowners form the backbone of organized snowmobiling in Ontario. Without their commitment and generosity, much of the 34,000 km. Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club’s trail system would not be possible. Landowners receive no compensation, so in this sense, they too, are an integral part of the voluntary system that makes organized snowmobiling work in Ontario.

First prize in this year’s draw, sponsored by Ward 5 Councillor El-Chantiry and Valley Rent Rite in was a Husqvarna Model 445 chainsaw with a retail value of $469.99. The lucky winner was Doug Craig of Deer Run Rd. in Pakenham. Second prize, also from Valley Rent Rite was a DeWalt cordless hammer-drill with a retail value of $249.99 which went to the Rick Craig of Diamondview Rd.

Third, fourth and fifth prizes were gas certificates from Barrs Service Centre in Pakenham, Nicoll’s Ultramar in Woodlawn and Darvesh’s Store in Kinburn. Winners were Peter Nanne, Waba Rd. and Tom Beaubien of Galetta Sd. Rd. and Luc Menard of Dunrobin Rd.

Sixth through Thirteenth received a $50 gas card courtesy of Petro-Canada, awarded to the following landowners: Gord Nesbitt, Bill Robinson, Arden Strong, Bill Ryan, Ron Lindsay, Stanley Cavanagh and Jeff Hunt. The balance of our twenty winners received a $20 gift certificate from Home Hardware. These go to Claude Proc, Tom O’Rourke, Bill Hackett, Robert Copeland, Jim Stevenson, Don Miller and Bruce Hudson.

On behalf of all of our W.C.S.T.A.I. members the board congratulates the winners and thanks all of the area landowners that make our local trail network possible.
