Once again, it’s time for our last meeting of the year. The meeting will be held at the Fire Hall in Horace at 7pm on Wed, May 3rd.
Our spring meetings always include tasks to close out the current season. For example, doing trail equipment maintenance, trail sign removal and general tasks like picking up banners from sponsors. But it is also when start the process of pre-planning for next season. For most, the snowmobile season is in the rearview mirror and quickly becomes out of mind. But if you think about it, now is actually the right time to start getting the club set up for success next season. To that end we want to again invite all area snowmobile enthusiasts and trail users to get involved by coming to a meeting. Come see what the club does to promote and enable snowmobiling and other community activities. Keep in mind our club meetings are a great way to meet other snowmobile enthusiasts. We are all volunteers in this endeavor but don’t worry, we don’t make anyone volunteer their time just because they show up. Your level of participation in helping your local snowmobile club is always up to you.
One special topic for this meeting will be club board elections. We have been going year by year with our board positions so it’s time to do it again so we can have the new board in place for continued pre-planning of tasks for next season. Being on the board is the ultimate way to get involved with your local snowmobile club. Hope you can join us and support the process.
After a long deep winter, and subsequently a fantastic snowmobiling season, it is time to begin the work of collecting signs from the trail system. This is one of the really big jobs the club has to complete each year. We can always use more help with this type of effort and it’s a great opportunity to give back to your local snowmobile club and even meet some new friends. As we all know, many hands make light work.
If you can help, meet at Casey’s in Horace this Saturday, April 29th at 9am. If you have a 4-wheeler bring it as that can help expedite the process. We will be along roads so if you have fluorescent/high-vis clothing, wear it to increase safety. We will have some on-hand as well.
Our next club meeting will be held Wednesday, March 1st at 7pm at the Horace Fire Station.
We are beginning the last month of the trail season and grooming operations continue on the best trail base we have had in several years. We hope you have been able to get out and enjoy the trails.
Join us and check out what the club is all about. We always look forward to meeting more of our trail users. Hope to see you there.
Support the Trail Sponsors Ride – Sat, March 4th
Join us Saturday, March 4th for a trail sponsor appreciation ride. Meet at the Wild Rice Bar & Grill at 10am and spend the day riding the trails and visiting trail stops to show your appreciation for their support of your local snowmobile club.
Our next club meeting will be held on Wednesday, Jan 4th at 7pm at the Horace Fire Station.
The season is well underway with plenty of snow on the trails. Our grooming crew persevered to complete the initial grooming pass on the trails despite much more difficult conditions than normally experienced when opening the trails. A big thanks to the grooming crew for meeting the challenge to prepare the trail base that we all will be able to enjoy the rest of the season.
There are several opportunities this winter to take part in snowmobiling with others. Hope to see you at some of these events!!!

Trail signs have been installed, trail maps have been printed and the groomer has been readied. A big thank you to all the volunteers who has helped get the trails prepared for the upcoming season. It’s a big effort and every set of hands are very much appreciated. Now we are awaiting enough snow to begin grooming operations and to officially open the trails. Keep doing that snow dance!!!
Hope to see you at the meeting. Apologies for the late notice, but keep in mind that our club meetings are the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm at the Horace Fire Station so an easy one to get scheduled on your calendar. 🙂
Installing the trail system is the biggest effort the club takes on each season. The snow is already starting to accumulate and with more cold temperatures on the way the ground will be freezing up soon so it’s time to get this job done.
Trail signing is scheduled to start this Saturday, Nov 19th. The plan is to meet at 9:00am at Casey’s in Horace. Once assembled we will determine how many crews we can send out and which areas each crew will cover. If you have a 4-wheeler please bring it along as they provide a real boost to efficiency. If you have safety clothing (fluorescent yellow or blaze orange) bring that along as well and wear it. We will have some available but want to make sure everyone is as visible as possible for safety.
Can’t commit to the whole day? That’s fine too. Any time you can provide would be great. Contact us via Facebook or email us at email@example.com to let us know your schedule and we can exchange contact info to ensure we can meet somewhere on the trail.
Additional signing days will be scheduled as needed after this initial push so if this Saturday doesn’t work out for you, stay tuned for additional opportunities to help out.
We are all volunteers and without volunteers, there is no trail. Please consider helping out, even if it is for a short period of time, every set of hands helps.
Our next club meeting will be held on Wednesday, Nov 2nd at 7pm at the Horace Fire Station.
With a successful Kickoff Party behind us, the club’s focus will move to other season preparation efforts. The biggest effort each season is trail installation and is the time when we need the most involvement. If you enjoy riding the trails, please consider getting involved. As with most volunteer efforts, many hands make light work…plus it’s just more fun when new people get involved. Stay tuned in the coming days for more information and timing.
This year’s edition of our annual fundraiser was once again a wonderful success. We had a great crowd, a great set of sponsors and a great group of volunteers that culminated in a fun and fantastic event. Our attendees went home with a lot of great prizes and no one left empty handed.
Thank you to everyone who attended and a special thanks to our sponsors who’s generosity made this event possible. Please thank and support these businesses and individuals for their support of your local snowmobile trail system.
The club will be holding our Annual Kickoff Party Friday, Oct 28th from 5:30-9pm at Big Erv’s in Horace. This event is a great way to support for your local snowmobile club whose volunteers create and maintain the local snowmobile trail.
See the flyer below for details. Hope to see you there.
