Prior to the secretary’s report a discussion was held to change the way the reading of the minutes are done at each meeting. A copy of the Jan. minutes was passed out to everyone present for everyone to read. Then the pres. asked if everyone had read the minutes and if there was any corrections or additions if not then he asked for a motion to accept the minutes.

SDSA Jim Weaver talked to Jeff Thorne and he said they will be having a conference call Sat. night at 8pm to decide whether or not to cancel the Governor’s ride because of the warm temps and snow conditions. Jeff will contact Cheryl Gelling immediately after the meeting so Cheryl can email everyone on what the decision was.  

Advisory report: none

Trail report by Jim Weaver: Jim stated that if we get snow the trail needs to be rechecked to make sure all signs are still in place and none are missing. Jim stated we need a good 6 to 8 inches of snow fall before we can do any grooming.

Emergency reaction: Sonny stated he will go through the list this spring to see if there is any changes to be made.

Safety: none.

Charity: The club received a letter from the Sertoma club asking for a pledge for the new roller coaster ride at Wylie Park. After a discussion it was decided to pass on this. Cheryl Gelling made a motion to pass on this, Kelly Weaver seconded, motion approved.

Publicity: The news article about our club and trail system by Andrew Johnson, outdoor editor, came out today on the Aberdeen News website and will be in Friday’s paper. We need to contact the newspaper to correct the time on the poker ride and chili feed.

Activities/Trail rides: Club ride in hills was great. There was well over 30 members out there and it was mentioned that if we have one next year we will try to do a better job of letting everyone know the time and places the rides will start from each day. Poker ride is this weekend Sat. Feb. 7th. everyone is welcomed to participate so let’s make our first ever poker ride a success. Next weekend is the Governor’s ride in the hills and everyone will be receiving an email Sat. evening letting everyone know if it is cancelled. Sat. Feb. 21st. will be the radar run and steak feed at the Richmond Oasis. It was discussed that unless we get a lot of snow soon there will not be enough time to make a track for the radar run. The steak feed will be at 5:30pm for members only regardless if we have the radar run or not.

Ann Nagel will do the news article for March. Tracy Olson will help.

Old business: None

New business: We received an email from Bill Weiland, NSU music teacher, asking if we could give a foreign exchange student from Germany a snowmobile ride? We invited him to tonights meeting but received an answer that he had other commitments tonight but would keep in contact with us. Ann Nagel asked if anyone knew what the process is on making a member a legacy member for SDSA. It was decided we would check into this and discuss it at a later meeting.

Convention report: As far as the 2016 convention we still need a theme and entertainment.

Motion was made by Ann Nagel to adjourn the meeting, seconded by Jeff Thorne, motions carried. Meeting adjourned.
