Safety Coordinator for Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club, Scott Shapert has spoken with Jim McFarland of OPRHP (Parks) about coming to Chautauqua County and putting on a Groomer Operator Training Class. No date or location has been picked at this point. We need about 30 people interested and willing to attend this class before we ask Jim McFarland to come. He will not come for just a couple people. Anybody who attends can get a Groomer Operator Training Certificate. We always seem to be adding new people as groomer operators and a refresher would not hurt for those who have already gotten a certificate. We would like all groomer operators to attend if possible. We would like the class to be scheduled for late October or November if possible. If you are interested in attending this class please contact Scott @
