We will be having our last scheduled club meeting of the season Wednesday, May 1st at 7pm at Big Erv’s in Horce. The primary agenda items will be to close down business for the current season and discuss ideas for next season (and the off season). Join us and share your ideas.
This past weekend we completed the last big job of the season, trail sign removal. A huge Thank You to everyone who came out to help pull signs for the year. Thanks to Brian, Kevin, Regan, Steve, Garrison, TJ, Devin, Tony, Matt, Pete, Levi, John, Jackson, Lavoy, Randy, and to Wayne Peter and Dakota Cat (for the use of a 4-wheeler). What an awesome crew we had this year. Three teams really helps make this a quick job.
This weekend we will be retrieving signs from the trail system. The late spring and flooding have put us behind schedule so we need your help to get the job done. If you have used the trails you are well aware that there are a lot of signs out there, about 12 signs per mile on average. That adds up to a big job but many hands makes light work.
We will be assembling at Casey’s in Horace at 9:15am. If you have an ATV please bring it. If you have high-visibility clothing, please wear it.
Hope to see you there.
Our next club meeting will be held Wednesday, April 3rd at 7pm at Big Erv’s in Horace. The end of the season is upon us so agenda items will include scheduling and preparation for end of season tasks including groomer maintenance, groomer storage and trail sign removal.
In addition we will be holding elections of club officers. This is a great time of year to get involved in your local snowmobiling club. High level planning for next season starts this spring. New people bring new ideas. We want and need your involvement.
Hope to see you there.
Our next club meeting will be Wednesday, March 6th at 7pm at Big Erv’s in Horace.
We’ve had meetings in different corners of the trail system this season hoping to meet and get involvement from more riders from across the system. The turnout at these meetings was ZERO people beyond the existing active members so this month we are back to the most convenient location for those folks.
We are having the best snow season in several years and the club has been busy keeping up with trail and groomer maintenance. Main topic for this meeting will be ongoing trail maintenance but we will also start looking forward to “end of season” tasks. Yes, that’s right, we are already in the last month of the season (trails close April 1st). Get that riding in now, it’ll have to hold you till next season.
Hope to see you Wednesday.
Last week’s bliizzard forced postponement of our monthly club meeting to Wed Feb 13th. We are still planning to meet at Brewzers in Walcott at 7pm.
The following is from the original post for this meeting:
As you may already know, we are moving our meeting locations around some in an attempt to connect with folks from other parts of the trail system. We want to meet riders from all parts of the trail system and need involvement from all parts of the trail system. We hope when we come you your corner of the trail system you are willing to spend some time with us. We hope to see you in Walcott.
Forecast is looking good for the weekend
As I write this the temp is -22. In case you were wondering, YES, that is cold. The forecast for the coming weekend however is looking NICE. The snow conditions in the area are the best we’ve seen in a few years. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect day to ride, this weekend might just be it. The low temps have delayed our grooming operations but we do plan to have the trails groomed for the weekend. We hope you can find some time to get out with your family and friends to enjoy this sport we all love.

Just a reminder that as you are out riding this winter, please respect private property. You can legally ride on the snowmobile trail and road right of ways. Adjacent land is not necessarily open to snowmobiles. We are all representatives of the snowmobiling community and as such are all responsible for how we are viewed by the general public. So lets be respectful out there. It’s really pretty simple…if you don’t know, then don’t go.
Get out there and ride
We are nearing the heart of the riding season. I hope you have been able to get out and start enjoying the sport with family and friends. Mother nature has really been keeping us on our toes and you can be sure we will be doing our best with the provided snow conditions. Keep doing that snow dance, get out there riding and support the clubs that provide the trails you ride. Be safe and have fun out there.
