Groton - The 32nd annual Dick Page "Ride In" Saturday at Groton's town garage was another big success. The ride in is the major fund raiser for the Buckaroos of 302, the local snowmobile club. The ride in featured barbecued chicken, beans, cole slaw, rolls, dessert and beverages. The club was assisted by members of the Groton Volunteer Fire Department.
The time for the ride in was announced as "11:00 am to the last chicken is served." The last of the 310 chicken halves was sold around 1:00 pm. Gallons of beans and gallons of cole slaw were sold as well to the hundreds of people who attended the event.
Landowners who allow trails to cross their property were the guests of honor. Each landowner was given two gift certificates for free meals to the ride in as a "Thank You" gift from the club. More than 80% of the snowmobile trails in Vermont cross private land.
