Driftbusters April Newsletter


Hello Everyone,


   It looks like spring is here which means the snowmobile season has come to an end. I hope everyone was able to find someplace to ride as our snowmobile trail had a very short season this year. So now it is time to put our snowmobiles away and get our summer toys out. It looks like it is going to be an early spring which means the farmers will be out in the fields very soon so all the trail leaders need to get their trail markers out as soon as possible. We can always use some volunteers to help in removing the trail markers, so anyone who would like to volunteer please contact one of the trail leaders, they are Jim Weaver, Duane Sutton, Jeff Thorne, and Bruce Tollefson. Reminder, contact Jim Weaver when your section has been removed.

   Would like to remind everyone that our Pizza/Swim party is just a couple weeks away on April 10 at the Super 8 East, with swimming starting at 1pm and pizza served at 5:30pm. If you plan on attending please contact Wanda Gelling at 605-216-2349 and let her know so she knows how many pizza’s to order.

   Our last monthly meeting of the year is April 7th. at 7:30pm at the Pizza Ranch.  

   The International Snowmobile Conference is June 9, 10, 11, in Rapid City.  

Our fall campout and membership drive is Sept. 16-17 at Wylie Park Campground. If you plan on attending it is never to early to reserve your campsite. Contact Vicki at 626-3512 and be sure and mention you are with the Aberdeen Drift busters and she will be able to help you reserve your camping spot. I would like to remind every member that you do not need to have a camper to attend this event. Just come out and join us. For more details check on the Aberdeen Driftbusters web site.

   Things are progressing well on making plans for the state SDSA convention next fall in Aberdeen. We have been having discussions at every monthly meeting in addition to the separate convention planning meetings which are held the 3rd. Tuesday of every month at the Ramkota Board room at 7pm. We will continue having these meetings until the convention, so I encourage everyone who would like to volunteer their help to please attend these meetings.

   Our first monthly meeting for next fall will fall on Labor Day weekend so I am guessing we will move it to the next Thursday night on Sept. 8th.   Please check with the Aberdeen Driftbusters web site throughout the summer for updates.

   Jeff Thorne will be our new President starting in Sept.

I would like to thank everyone for allowing me to be your President for the past 3 yrs.             Jim Gelling,
