Just before Christmas, the China Four Seasons Club received what turned out to be an amazing telephone call. The great guys at Power Equipment Plus started by saying, we’re going to make your day. “Oh,” we said, “and why is that?” said China Four Seasons Club President Tom Rumpf.
“You have a 2019 Polaris Ranger with tracks, insulated cab, heater, extra lights and set up to haul a drag.” Their first thought was we didn’t order that. We were then told it was due from some gracious anonymous donor who wanted to help the club.
How can someone be thanked for such a huge gift? They have since taken delivery of this fine unit and when the snow fell they began utilizing it for dragging 40-plus miles of trails. It will also be used checking trails and doing maintenance to all the trails all year round.
“We can only humbly say thank you to our anonymous donor,” said Rumpf. “And please just know we will use it for what it is intended to be used for. We plan to show it off as much as we can so you will be seeing it around town and at China Days. Again how can we thank you, anonymous donor?”
