Scott has been involved with snowmobiling forever. He had been the President of the Algonquin Snowmobile Club since the mid 80’s. His Dad Jack was one of the Sledding Pioneers, helping to create the first organized snowmobile club in Ontario in the early 60’s and build the first groomed trail, using bed springs. Not only is Scott deserving of this award, but his entire family is, too. Scott’s wife Lynda gives up her house, and offers her amazing hosting talents for the Club’s meetings through out the sledding season — she is isthe “Hostess with the Mostest” — thank you, Lynda!
Scott gives 110% to snowmobiling with his guidance and hard work, and he is the key to a great Club. Scott spends countless hours per year attending District meetings, dealing with landowners issues, building bridges, brushing trails, grooming trails and even dealing with the odd beaver that can cause some problems. In his spare time, he even gets a chance to ride the great trails he is so proud of.
Thank You Scott, and CONGRATULATIONS from all Oxtonguians!
