To the Editor:
The 2012 Blizzard Snowmobile Club Rendezvous Committee would like to thank the Fairmont community for the support we received hosting the 2012 Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association Winter Rendezvous, held Feb. 9-12 here in Fairmont.
A gigantic thank you to Jason Subbert and the staff at Torgerson Properties for all the pre-event planning and the support you gave us during the event, especially when the weather did not want to cooperate.
Thank you to Stephanie Busiahn at the CVB for her expertise in filling out the original bid application and all the help she gave us through the weekend event.
Thanks to Mayor Lynn Brown of Truman, Fairmont Mayor Randy Quiring, Martin County Commissioner Jack Potter, state Rep. Bob Gunther and Sen. Julie Rosen for all the words of welcome to our guests during the weekend.
Thank you to canine officer Chad Sanow and his partner, Jango, for their outstanding presentation. Our guests were impressed with officer Sanow's passion and love for his job.
A huge thank you to KSUM/KFMC and Jennifer Brookens of the Sentinel for the extended coverage given to the Rendezvous weekend.
We received many positive comments about our community, which makes us proud to be from Fairmont.
