December 2014 Newsletter


Hello Everyone,

The 2014 SDSA State Snowmobile Convention in Deadwood was a great success. It was well represented by all the snowmobile clubs in the state. Thank you to all the members of the Driftbusters that attended. We were well represented. We were told that we lost the trophy for the largest club by one membership. So I challenge every member to work harder to sign up new members so we can bring the trophy back to Aberdeen next year. Duane Sutton was nominated for National Hall of Fame.

The Driftbusters have won the bid for the 2016 SDSA State Snowmobile Convention. The next 2 years will be busy planning for the convention. We will need a lot of volunteers to help with this project. A big thank you to Duane Sutton for bringing back the SDSA trailer with the simulator in it for our safety course.

The safety course was held Nov. 23rd. at the new location. The Primrose gym worked out great for this. Corey had 6 people who participated and 5 of them were 12 and older to be certified and will be receiving their certificate from the state. Thank you to Wanda Gelling for bringing homemade cookies as they all enjoyed them. Thanks to Corey and Kate for the chips, beverages, and snacks.

The snowmobile trail is all marked and waiting for Becky Graff, with the Game, Fish, and Parks, to inspect it and tell us if we need to make any changes. If we get snow and the inspection has been completed and the changes done, we can start grooming Dec. 1st. so think lots of SNOW!!!!!!! The groomer is scheduled to be serviced this week and will be ready to start grooming.

There are still a few rooms available at Rec. Springs for the club ride the last weekend in Jan. so anyone needing a room can do so by getting on the Driftbusters web site and clicking on Jan. Club Ride in the Hills.

We will be discussing plans for trail rides, fund raisers, and other fun activities at our Dec. meeting so please be sure and attend. We need all the young members to please come forward and present your ideas so we can plan new events.

To all members and businesses who have paid your dues a big thank you. Without your support we would not be able to have a club.

Next meeting is Dec. 4th. at 7:30pm in the back room of the Pizza Ranch.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

James Gelling, President
