All of the main trail has been groomed, thanks to Todd, Jim, Derek, Joe, and Jody. On a sad note, we have lost a member of our family today, Ken Rhodes passed away from a blood clot. Ken is Dean's brother who helped out behind the bar and had members of our club for numerous years. Please keep Ken's family in your prayers and thoughts. He had always gives a helping hand, thru the years and DJ personally will miss all his razzing that he had to give. He will be greatly missed.

 NOVEMBER

The next meeting is December 2nd, 2009.  On the agenda, we will be discussing  trail marking.  We found out the hard way we are not doing things the proper way.  We have not been contacted yet for Pioneer Village, but presuming we are on for that again.  Mit said we had 119 Ski-Doo money forms turned in, which comes to a total of $1190. She did a awesome job of calling members.  Hope to see you all at the meeting!

  The first meeting of the season is November 4th at 7 pm.  Reminder to members that snowmobile  registrations are due. At the meeting Bert has insurance and grant items to address, as well as, relaying Scott Langel concerns about the rec trail being used for snowmobiling riding.  Also, we will talk about trailing signing.

November 15th is the deadline to turn your form in for free money from Ski-Doo for the club. If you don't want to take the time to take them to the local Ski-Doo dealer, bring them to the meeting or mail them to the club by November 12th, then somebody will get them turned in by the deadline.

Hope to see you all at the meeting!

Just want to take some time to thank everyone that is apart of this club.  Every membership counts.  Had some new faces this year hope it was what they expected and hope to see them again next year.  I want to give a personal thanks to Mit and Jim, Todd and Kristi, Bert and Glenda, Neal and Pete for helping me through this year.  Thanks guys. Thanks to all that help with trail signs, pioneer village, fun runs, grooming and what ever else I am forgetting.  Agenda items: trail signs out, groomer storage and moving, ISSA application form snowmobiler of year, election of officers,  discuss displaying minutes on website, and Pete wants to hang up the food after so many years, hopefully we all can gang up on him and get him to change his mind.

     DJ groomed C-38 to Merrill Thursday night and Friday afternoon made it to Remsen.  Trails are now groomed from Merrill to Remsen, to Marcus, and to Germantown, then back to Marcus and back to Remsen. Thanks to the five new groomers Jeremy, Bret, Nick, Time, and Derek that took time to get certified.

     For those that were not at the meeting, we are having an unofficial trail ride Saturday (17th) meeting at Pheasant between 12 pm and 1 pm.  Some suggested riding to Marcus and Germantown or might be a good time being it is not club sponsored ride, is to go to Merrill and hop on the river ride to Hinton and Nickel.  All of the details will be decided tomorrow.

         For the Wednesday meeting, enter the dance hall on the south side (parking lot side) through the door there.
       Those riding sleds should take the route around the golf course (LeMars side of Remsen) through the derby arena. Go north at mid Sioux on Marion St. to Gengler Feed railroad tracks, turn right to Main Street. Go to Avalon Alley to park in the lot.
       The old route coming from the Pheasant is still open but is not marked until you get to the burn pile. If you head north at the Pheasant corner, go to the railroad tracks and cross them, then turn left and follow the waterway west and cross the black top, following the waterway until the burn pile where there will be a road over the creek. Then follow the trail in.
