Snowmobile Club Wrap-up 2011-2012

Aberdeen Driftbusters’ Newsletter
April 2012

Thank you to all who have come to the meetings and events this past year.  I know how hard it can be to stay committed to this sport when there is no snow outside.  Your support and participation is greatly appreciated.

Jim weaver and Sunny Pence look over the groomer for the Dakota Midland Trail manged by the Driftbusters Snowmobile Club.

Thank you to Jim Weaver for all of his time and commitment as Trail Boss! And thank you to all of the trail leaders and volunteers.  It is your volunteer help and commitment that makes the Dakota Midland Trail a reality.  Trail signs have been or are in the process of being pulled.  Thank you!

Your new board of directors following the election at the March meeting is as follows: President – Jeff Thorne, President Elect – James M. (Mike) Gelling, Past President – Sunny Pence, Treasurer – Sharmie Jensen, Secretary – Cheryl Gelling with the help of Tracy Olson, and Board of Directors are Jim Friedt, Mike Gelling (appointed by President Sunny Pence to complete remainder of vacant position), Corey Gelling and Lee Olson.

Just a reminder that the Driftbusters will be hosting the 2012 convention, so we are going to need volunteers to help make this happen. Be prepared to say “yes” when asked to help on a committee or volunteer at the convention. It is never too early to start asking for and gathering donated items for the silent auction and/or door prizes. Let’s work together to make this another memorable convention for all of our SDSA friends.  The date of the SDSA Convention is November 9 & 10.

Thanks to everyone who helped out and attended the Pizza and Swim Party that was held Sunday, March 25. We apologize for miscommunication on when the Pizza was to be served and will strive to do better next year.

Discussion was held regarding a spring campout at either Wylie or the Brown County Fairgrounds for the weekend of May 18 & 19.  Please look for another e-mail regarding this event later this week.

The fall campout will be held at Wylie the weekend of September 14 & 15.  Mark your calendars now and call 626-3512 to make your reservation.  Explain that you are with the Aberdeen Driftbusters Group and that you need to place your name on one of the sites being held under that block.  More information will be coming.

Tony Schmitt, who is replacing Ryan Raynor as trails specialist, plans on attending our April meeting so he can meet everyone.

The next meeting is April 5 at 7 PM at the Pizza Ranch.  Thank you for allowing me to be your president this past year.  I pass the gavel on to Jeff Thorne, your elected president for the 2012-2013 season. Have a great summer. See you on trails next year!
