September Newsletter

September Newsletter:

Welcome back from summer vacation. Let’s hope for a better year of snow this year.

Our first meeting of the year will be September 7th at 7:30 PM at the Pizza Ranch. Come out and help us get the year started right. We will be discussing the trail – the state decided to move some signs and several are in the middle of the trail so we will need to review options or our trail may be in jeopardy. Also, we will need to decide how to handle the trophy case that needs to be moved due to the Pizza Ranch remodeling. Currently this is being stored in the Gelling’s snowmobile trailer and they will need that soon! Other agenda items include: monthly meeting location, website and newsletter.
We are still looking for a President Elect for the Club. It is important for the Club to continue so we can advocate for access to snowmobiling, have a trail and overall just HAVE FUN!
My son Matt will be giving a YETIS – Youth Engagement Through Involvement in Snowmobiling update from their spring meeting in Pierre in May and their summer outing in Sioux Falls in August. We encourage the teens of our club to join YETIS – no additional fee, but a lot of fun! The next YETIS meeting is scheduled during the convention in Brookings in November.
The annual camp out and Membership Drive will be September 15-17 at Wylie Park. If you do not have your campsites contact Wylie Park at 605-626-3512 and be sure and tell them that you are with the Aberdeen Driftbusters Snowmobile club and reserve soon. You don’t need a camper to come join the fun. Friday night there will be a turkey cookout and campfire. Saturday will be the potluck meal 5:30pm with the Millstone furnishing our main course, followed by free go carts to paid members and likely another bonfire. Come join all or a portion of the weekend. Bring along a friend – recruit someone new to snowmobiling!
You will be asked to pay your dues at the camp out – $30.00/year per family which includes SDSA dues and access to the Snowplainsman. SDSA gets $20.00 and $10.00 stays with the club.
There is also an Associate Membership. If you are a business owner or know of someone that would be interested in becoming an associate member, contact a club member and we can reach out to the business with the information. Associate memberships allow the business to advertise to club members and be recognized on the website.
Hope to see you at one of the September events to get our season kicked off to a great start! Call me or email if you have questions or agenda items.
President, Lee Olson
