   Happy New Year 2016.   Our annual holiday party at the Richmond Oasis on Dec. 19th. was a great success. We had a great turnout and the steaks were excellent. Thanks to Jim Weaver and Sunny Pence for cooking them and a big thank you to everyone who brought canned goods for the food drive. Thank you to Alex & Diane Schaffer for letting us use the Richmond Oasis for Driftbusters events.  

   We finally received enough snow to groom the trail, the trail was groomed from Bath to Mina, Richmond and up to Westport Dec. 27th. and on the 28th it was groomed up to Frederick . The east/ west ditches are the best as most of them are full of snow and the rest of the trail is marginal but you can ride it. At least we have a base down now when we get more snow.

   Hope everyone was able to listen to Jim Weaver’s interview on Dakota Radio 105.5 on our snowmobile trail. He did an awesome job. You can go to Driftbusters facebook page and it will show you how to download and listen to the interview.

   Reminder: Our club ride in the Black Hills is the weekend of Jan. 22, anyone wanting to reserve a room needs to contact Deadwood Resort. This is also the weekend of the Sno Cross races in Deadwood.

Discussion will be held at the Jan. meeting on the ISC, (International Snowmobile Conference) on June 9.10,11 2016 in Rapid City.

I encourage everyone to attend the next meeting, Jan. 7th. as we will be discussing rides and events for the rest of the year as well as continuing discussion on the 2016 convention.

   REMINDER; Membership dues were due Dec. 31, 2015. I encourage all members who knows someone who might be interested in joining our club to bring them to our meeting so we can sign them up. Remind them that whether they ride our local trail or not they need to be come a member of a snowmobile club to help fight anti- snowmobile groups who are trying to take our right to ride on public lands away. (Numbers count) in fighting these groups.

See you at the meeting, Jan. 7th. at 7:30 pm at the Pizza Ranch.
