Driftbusters March Newsletter


Hello Everyone,

   I would like to thank everyone who attended the Governor’s Ride in the Black Hills. The weather was beautiful, the temperature was a little on the warm side but the ride was a lot of fun and it looked like everyone was having a good time. We were a little late leaving Trailshead that evening and got caught in rain which quickly turned to snow which made for a very slow and slippery drive back to Deadwood.

   As everyone knows mother nature has not been very kind to us again this winter. We were able to groom the trail a couple of times so hope everyone had a chance to ride the trail before all the snow melted. We can only groom until the 15th. of March so let’s hope we get some more snow before then. The radar run was postponed with the hopes we will get more snow but as of now that is not looking to promising .

   Our next upcoming event will be the Pizza/Swim party April 10th. at the Super 8 East. Swimming starts at 1pm and pizza is served at 5:30pm.    Wanda Gelling has agreed to be the contact person again this year and she is asking everyone that plans on attending to please let her know a week or so ahead of time so she knows how many snacks and pizza’s to order. Her phone no. is 605-216-2349.

   At our March meeting we need to elect board members and officers for next year. Jim Friedt has agreed to being treasurer and Cheryl Gelling has agreed to be secretary for one more year. We have 2 board members, Dan Rohrbach and Joey Nagel, whose terms are up this year. Jeff Thorne will be President next year but we need to fill the position of President-Elect for 2017-2018. Please come to the meeting if you would like to fill one of these positions.   WARNING; ANYONE WHO DOESN’T COME TO THE MEETING COULD BE ELECTED FOR ONE OF THESE POSITIONS!!!!!!!

   We have had 2 separate convention planning meetings in addition to discussing the upcoming convention at our regular meetings so I encourage everyone to come to the March meeting and get involved in the upcoming convention next Nov.

   The ISC convention will be held in Rapid City on June 9,10, 11. Anyone who would like to attend please come to the March meeting for more information. Towtector will be having a booth there and has asked that every club member that has received a towtector from them to furnish them with pictures & videos along with their opinion on how they like the towtector.        

   The fall campout and membership drive will be Sept. 16-17 at Wylie Park Campground. Campsites have been reserved (61-68,77-81,87-89) for the Aberdeen Driftbusters Snowmobile Club. To reserve your site please call 605-626-3512 and ask for Vicki and be sure you mention you are with the Aberdeen Driftbusters Snowmobile Club.
