Topper302 mentioned in another thread that Buzzy had sold his grooming business for the Buckaroos of 302 in Groton. I thought this news deserved it's own thread so I am bringing it up now. Topper said that Buzzy might still do some daytime grooming but is pretty much done with it. Buzzy ruffled some people but his work for the sport was was so much more than I can imagine. My step-father-in-law has known Buzzy and Betty since maybe before snowmobiling as they used to meet up at square dances.

Father-in-law asked Buzzy a number of years ago when he was going to give up grooming. Buzzy replied "when I run out of money".

All the best to snowmobiling icons Buzzy and Betty Eastman.

Thank you for all you have done.

Ed

What a great job they did in that area for so many years. Some of the best and most memorable riding I have done was after they laid white carpet. Many thanks for your years of great grooming. Be well and happy...wjt

Wow. After having a few conversations on the trail with Buzzy &Betty I'm not that surprised. Very dedicated to each other as well to the snowmobiling and to the club. Health always comes first. People like them are very few and far between. We will continue to stop by their house to say hello! Here's a pic of Betty on the trail from a couple years back.

Wow, thanks for the news, both of them have been an absolute staple in the snowmobile arena that its gonna be tough to imagine it without them. A marvelous, generous and great couple.. I wish them all the best and also want to send a HUGE "THANK YOU" to the both of them..wonderful people! I expect a write up in the VAST magazine in the near future about this.
