This Year’s Canadian Hockey Event a Winning Success!

Every year, for two weekends in January, the Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario hosts their annual Canadian National Pond Hockey Tournament.   Last year, our blog featured some amazing shots of the event and their 26 ice rinks, where 1200 games are played throughout the course of the tournament.  But this year we got a closer view of the action thanks to Connect Equipment.   Connect, one of our Canadian Ventrac dealers,  shot some footage of the event and sent it to our talented video editors here at Ventrac, Mark and Denver.   They  put their finishing touches on the video and put together a fantastic rendition of some of the weekend’s activities.   And of course, Ventrac  equipment was responsible for keeping the rinks cleared between every game.  And they did an awesome job of that!

It was evident the participants had a great time and it was another successful event for Deerhurst Resort!

Ventrac Soccer Team Wins Local Championship

Team Ventrac Indoor Soccer Champions 2011

This article is about the power, finesse, elegant style, speed, durability, and versatility of Ventrac… on a soccer field. To be more precise, what happens when you put a team of Ventrac employees on a soccer field to play (not to mow, stripe, aerate, seed or landscape, etc.).

For the last several years Ventrac employees have participated in a local indoor soccer league at the Dalton YMCA.   This year 12 teams made up of high school, business, and other acquaintances, participated in the league.  Each team consisted of 5 players on the field at a time.  It is a highly competitive league made up of several solid teams and year after year, Ventrac has managed to finish at or near the top.

Family Helps to Raise Awareness on the Importance of ROPS

All 4000 Series Ventrac Tractors come equipped with Roll Bar

A news article came across my desk last week.  I know, that doesn’t sound like a big deal, but the subject of the article was very close to the heart of a Ventrac employee, Eric Fodor.   Our local newspaper wrote the story about Eric’s sister, Alyssa Fodor.  Alyssa and Eric experienced the tragic loss of their grandfather several years ago due to a tractor rollover accident.   As I read through the text of this article, I thought it was very thought provoking and was something that needed to be shared with our readers.   Maybe you have had a similar experience as the Fodor family, and even if you have not, hopefully we can help Alyssa in her quest to take a horrible accident and give it a higher purpose.    She now makes it her passion and mission to develop programs to make sure tractors are equipped with ROPS (rollover protective structures) in hopes that other families may avoid the pain her family went through.   Continue Reading
