October Newsletter

October Newsletter
Our next meeting is coming up on Thursday, October 5th. at 7:30 PM at the Pizza Ranch. We will be moving our monthly meetings around to support all of our Associate Members so watch the newsletter for locations. Since our November meeting lands the day before the start of the State Convention in Brookings we will be deciding on an alternate date for the Nov. meeting. Watch your email for date and location!
Agenda items for our October meeting include: setting a date for the safety course, teams and dates for starting the signing of our trail, award nominations for Woman of the Year, Man of the Year, Teen of the Year, Groomer of the Year and Family of the Year. Attend the meeting or submit a nomination via email at driftbusters@nrctv.com by Oct. 20th. 2017. If you need a form, please contact us at driftbusters@nrctv.com.
We had a successful camp out again this year though the weather could have been a little warmer. Guess it was preparing us for the winter season that we hope will bring lots of snow. Now is the time that we also need to renew our membership dues. Family memberships are $30.00 year. $20 goes to the state for your SDSA membership which includes the Snowplainsman Newsletter. $10 stays with our local club. Dues can be mailed to: Driftbusters Snowmobile Club, P.O. Box 204, Aberdeen, S.D. 57402-0204. If you are an area business owner and wish to promote your business through our local club and at the state level, Associate Memberships are available. Contact Cheryl Gelling, Sec. at 605-329-7402.
The club will be moving the webpage to Paul Sivertsen. Paul has offered to donate his time to update the webpage and help make the site more interactive for our members to post pictures, stories of the fun everyone is having in the snow.
Because the club could not find a place to display the trophy case and trophies, the club decided to donate the trophy case to Dennis and Char Beckler. James & Cheryl Gelling still have the trophies until it can be decided what to do with them.
At the last meeting it was reported that the SD Game, Fish and Parks will be installing additional cameras in the Black Hills so we will now have accurate snow/weather reports throughout the trail.
We will be signing our trails soon – about 75 miles worth. This takes a lot of volunteer hours to make sure the trail is safe and ready to ride for the first snowfall. If you are interested in assisting with signing the trail, please contact Jim Weaver at 605-216-5309.
Hope you can make the next meeting. Bring a friend and your family – snowmobiling is FUN and it starts by getting involved in your local club!
Lee Olson, President
