Hello Everyone,


   Our very first poker run turned out great considering we did not have any snow to ride snowmobiles and everyone had to travel in their vehicles. The winner of the best hand was Colette Angle and Stacey Pence was the winner of the second best hand. $360 was donated to Make-A-Wish and the free will offering for the chili went to the Frederick Senior Citizens.

     Thank you to Andrew Johnson and the Aberdeen American News for the article about our club and trail.  

     It was decided to go ahead with the Governor’s ride even if the snow conditions were not great. From all reports attendants wasn’t that much less than last year and every one reported they had a good time.

     The radar run for Feb. 21st. was cancelled due to no snow. But the steak feed was still held that evening at the Richmond Oasis. There was a very good turnout and everyone said the steaks were great. A big thank you to Jim Weaver, Sunny Pence, and Al Nagel for cooking the steaks. Thanks to all of you who helped organize this event and brought deserts. Thanks to everyone who brought canned goods to donate to the Salvation Army Food Pantry.

     Our next event coming up will be the Pizza/Swim party. Possible dates to have this is Sunday, March 29th. or Sunday, April 12th. as April 5th. is Easter Sunday. Glenn & Barb Imberi have prior commitments for both of these dates so we will need someone to handle this event. We will discuss this and finalize the date at our next snowmobile meeting on Thursday, March 5th.

   Our fall campout and membership drive will be the weekend of Sept. 18 & 19th. at Wylie Park Campground which is the weekend after Hay Days. We were able to reserve the same camp sites as we have in the past. They are sites 61 through 68, 77 through 81, and 87 through 89. The club house has been reserved for Sat. night.   Please contact Vicki at 626-3512 or 626-7015 to reserve your campsite. Don’t forget to mention that you are with the Aberdeen Driftbusters Snowmobile Club. Your site must be reserved before the 1st. of Sept.

     Election of officers will be held at the April meeting. Two board members and president elect are needed for the up coming year. It is assumed that Cheryl Gelling will continue as Secretary and Jim Friedt as our treasurer.

     The April 2nd meeting is one day before Good Friday so we need to discuss at our March meeting if we need to change the date. March 31st. is the last day we can groom our snowmobile trail so let’s keep hoping we get lots of snow in March.

     See you at our next meeting which is March 5th. at 7:30 pm at the Pizza Ranch.


James Gelling, President
