We have had a terrific response to our matching challenge and we expect to be up and running (ready to groom trails) within the next week. Here are the details:
We have raised $9,140 in the last 3 weeks towards our matching challenge! We are very close to matching the $10,000 pledged by our generous sponsors Craft Sportswear of Beverly and Brotchie Capital Management of Peabody. The challenge ends January 17th: please help us meet our goal by forwarding this message, liking us on facebook and twitter and encouraging people to visit our web site nsnordic.org. Does your company offer matching gifts?
CAPITAL EQUIPMENT AND INSURANCE
Here's what we've done with your donations thus far!
Purchased this Arctic Cat Bear Cat 7000 utility snowmobile for grooming, and bought the YTS Ginzu Groomer, which was delivered on Saturday from Vermont. Six of us were able to be there for the delivery, some informal training and familiarization with how it all works.
A hidden expense was also finalized - we secured insurance for NSNA, which is required for us to groom Patton Park and other areas.
