We are working on 1 more large bridge behind the Nutmeg Inn in Wilmington. So if you have a portable saw, or pry bars, nail guns….. that would be great, and appreciated!!
Meet at the groomer barn.
This is an important bridge that leads to the Nutmeg Inn where the owners plan to have a food truck available in the snow season for Snowmobiles, and also leads to The Wilmington Inn for food and drinks, and Nido’s gas.

It is with a heavy heart DVSJ salutes and says goodbye to Dan Kotowsky – a dear friend and DVSJ director for over two decades! He lost his battle to cancer 9/18/2017 and we have lost an amazing man that enjoyed life, loved a party, and worked so hard for this snowmobile club. One of Dan’s hobbies was cooking and he was our main chef for so many pig roasts! I hear stories of the first pig roast Dan coordinated at Sommerset Reservoir where everyone froze on that cold wintery day but was told the food was awesome and the pig outstanding! He worked the trails, learned how to groom, and was always there for the snowmobile club. We will truly miss him.
