KNSC Tractor Purchase Thanks to Capital Campaign

October 28, 2018 – Thanks to the John and Melissa Besse Foundation and more than 30 other families and individuals, KNSC has purchased a new John Deere tractor with a bucket and backhoe. This equipment, along with the planned purchase of other attachments, will allow the club to be proactive in improving drainage and the trail surface and extend the skiing season.
