Congratulations to Dave Silvia who won the MSA Groomer of the Year award this year. He received twelve nominations from our club members and members of other clubs.

Everyone who rides the JoMary trails thanks you for your outstanding work over the many years you have been key to the club’s grooming team.

One knows immediately when reaching the JoMary trail system. Dave does an absolutely fantastic job of smoothing the trails, eliminating the bumps and banks that would otherwise make the riding both miserable and dangerous. Dave will not leave these issues in place.

Dave does this at night when his excellent efforts will have time to harden up properly. This makes the trail conditions last longer, and thereby reduces the club’s overall grooming expenses. Despite this inconvenience in his personal schedule, Dave is often seen riding the trails the next day – enjoying the fruits of his labor and assessing conditions.

Dave takes extra steps to see that outhouses along the trails are shoveled out and clean – something that makes mixed group rides much more enjoyable for the ladies – and they do appreciate it.
