Steak Feed

We will be having the steak feed on Sat. Feb. 22 for members only at the Richmond Oasis starting at 5:30pm.  Please bring a canned goods item for the Salvation Army Food Pantry. For every $5 donated to the Salvation Army Food Pantry your name will go in the hat to win one or more of the several prizes we will be giving away.  As you know the steak feed is part of your membership so please come and join us for a good time.  As for the radar run because of lack of snow we will not be able to have it at this time.  Looking forward to seeing you there.      

February Newsletter 2014

Driftbusters February Newsletter


Hello Everyone,   It is February and our trail still doesn’t have enough snow on it to groom or ride on.   We did get the new groomer a few weeks ago and was able to groom part of the trail so haven’t been able to really check it out but it does appear to be a big improvement over the old groomer. It has lots of new bells and whistles on it that Kenny Ham and I can’t wait to check out. If any member would like to learn how to help run the groomer in the future please contact Jim Weaver. The trail had enough snow on it to make it ride able for one week and since then we have had a couple of warm spells which have made the trail conditions very poor. 

    It was decided to reschedule the radar run and steak feed to Sat. Feb. 22. Please check the Aberdeen Driftbusters web site for all the details.   Hopefully we will have enough snow by then.  We will have the steak feed for members only on that Sat. Feb. 22nd.  starting at 5:30 pm. regardless if we have to postpone the radar run again. 

    The governor’s ride is only 2 weeks away, Feb. 15th. so if you want to join us please get your reservations in as soon as possible.  Check the SnoPlainsman for all the information.  Have got several reports from people that have been out to the Black Hills riding and the trails are excellent.  Have even heard that if you decide to ride off the trail be prepared as the snow is deep.  So far all the club rides have been cancelled due to lack of snow on the trail.  Everyone think SNOW!!!!!

   Just a reminder the next scheduled meeting is Thursday, Feb. 6th. at 7:30pm at the Pizza Ranch. To all new members please come early to the back room of the Pizza Ranch to get your certificate for your free buffet meals, bring a friend and we can sign them up that night also so they can get their free certificate for the free buffet meals.   Hope to see you there.
