SDSA Convention Thank You’s

Kelly Weaver, Ann Nagel, Stacey Pence

Ann Nagel, Stacey Pence and Kelly Weaver, co-chairs of the 2012 SDSA Convention, would like to thank all who helped in making the 2012 convention in Aberdeen a success.  Our local Driftbusters convention committee members did an awesome job  planning throughout the year and pulling the pieces together for the weekend.  SDSA board, staff, and members from across the state who attended and contributed items for the auctions made the event a great fundraiser for SDSA.  Thanks also to our ACSA delegation of Christine Jourdain, Judy King and our own Duane Sutton.  We also can’t say enough about all the vendors who came – thank your for being a part of the event.  It was also our pleasure to work with First Place Parts to have the avalanche safety class on Saturday afternoon.   The smiles on our faces are thanks to all your help and the fact that the convention is over and we are happily looking forward to someone else planning next year’s event!  😀 See you on the trails!

Setting Up For Radar Run

Setting Up For Radar Run

Well I do not know if this month could get any better since we now have snow on the ground and all of our work that we put into the trail is paying off.

To go along with the above mentioned out in the Black Hills there are and will be several reroutes this year as the forestry department keeps working on the pine beetle issues that are going on in the hills.  If you go to the GFP web site and click on trail conditions they will have several new interactive live footage and maps of the trail.

Corey Gelling was the instructor for the safety course again this year and he had 5 people take the class and they all passed.  Corey stated that he is waiting for the signed certificates to come back from the State and he will get them to the participants of the course.

The club is in need of a new treasurer if you are interested in this position and would like some more information on the position please feel free to contact me, Jeff Thorne at 229-2223 or 216-1939.

Well it is December so I hope that everyone is almost ready for the Holidays (Christmas/New Years) since they are just a week away.  I wish each and everyone a Happy Holiday season and a Happy New Year.

The club will be hosting a radar run January 5th. at the Richmond Oasis from 1pm to 4pm.  The price for the radar run will be $5.00 for 3 passes and all the proceeds will be donated to a charity of our choice.  Following the radar run there will be a steak feed starting at 6pm. The club will furnish the steaks.  See you there.

Our next club meeting will be at the Pizza Ranch on January 3rd. at 7:30 pm.
If you have not paid your dues please do so before Dec. 31 so you can continue to get the SnoPlainsman and join our activities.
