Driftbusters February Newsletter


Hello Everyone,

   WOW!!!!!! Can you believe this, it is the end of January and we still don’t have enough snow to ride or groom the trail. At least we haven’t had a lot of bitter cold weather so with the nice temperatures it is hard to complain about the winter. It is Friday evening, Jan 30th. Cheryl and I have just got back to the motel from our club ride in the Black Hills. The trails are great and the weather is ideal for riding. We all met at Trailshead around 10am. We split up in 3 different groups and all went different directions. Majority of us met at Canyon Springs Bar & Grill for lunch. Kelly & Ann said they were trying to do a head count and said they thought we had well over 30 members for the Friday club ride and it sounds like more members are coming for the Sat. ride. What an awesome turnout. A big thank you to all members who came.

   We have a lot of things planned for Feb. snow or no snow so we will have things to look forward to. First off is our club ride in the Black Hills Jan. 30th.—Feb. 1st. Our Feb. meeting at the Pizza Ranch Feb. 5th. 7:30 pm. Our next event is our Poker Ride to Frederick Feb. 7th. followed by a chili feed. So get in your vehicles (cars, pickups, atv’s, motorcycles, & snowmobiles if it snows) and participate in our first ever poker ride. For more details of the event go to the Driftbusters web site. The following weekend, Feb. 14th. will be the Governors ride in the Black Hills. Sat. Feb. 21st. will be our radar run at the Richmond Oasis from 1 to 4 pm, followed by the steak feed for club members at 5:30pm. We will have the steak feed regardless if we have to cancel the radar run because of no snow.   We also had planned on going to another East River trail system to ride their trail the last weekend in Feb.

   We received a call from Parks & Rec. letting us know that they have 2 large groups booked for the weekend of Sept. 17-18-19, 2015 for the Wylie Campground, which is around the time when we have our fall campout.

   Jim Weaver, Ken Ham, & Jim & Cheryl Gelling, met with Andrew Johnson, outdoors editor for the Aberdeen American News, to put together an article about our club and our trail that will be coming out in the Aberdeen American News.

   Our next meeting is scheduled for Feb. 5th. at 7:30 at the Pizza Ranch at which time we will be discussing setting a date for the Pizza/Swim party and setting a date for the fall campout, as well as details for the 2016 convention.

   If there are any members that are still not getting the Sno Plainsman please contact Cheryl Gelling at Driftbusters@nrctv.com  

   See you at the Feb 5th. meeting, James Gelling, Pres.
