Just a reminder that everyone who renews their club membership by September 30th will be entered in a drawing to win 1 of 5 club store give-a-ways at the October meeting. ¬†With one week to go we only have less than 10% of last years membership joined for 2013-2014. ¬†We can do better!!!
Your 2013-2014 NYS registrations should have arrived in your mailboxes by now so that means it’s time to renew your club memberships. By doing it in the fall you avoid the rush of wanting to get it done before you go riding. It also helps the club plan better for the winter with our budgets. By completing your NYS registration in the fall you also increase the grant amounts given to the clubs for grooming as registration amounts by 12/1 are used to set the award values. Just follow the link to renew you club memberships online and then renew your registration online too.
For everyone that renews their club membership by the end of September you will be entered in a drawing for 5 chances to win an item of your choice from the club store (sweatshirt, t-shirt, hat, etc.).
The first meeting of the year is fast approaching. ¬†Due to local primary elections on our normal second Tuesday of the month, the September Meeting will be on Thursday 9/12. ¬†We have a lot of stuff to go over and would love to see some new faces. ¬†We have several open positions that need new volunteers to step up and lead.
This summer we’ve been busy prepping our barn site to be able to hopefully start construction this fall. ¬†With a lot of help we’ll be able to get the barn up before the snow flies. ¬†We’ll be authorizing the barn at the September meeting and looking for volunteers to help with the raising in late September and October.
See you there
The time has come to officially close the trails for the summer.
Remember ATV’s are NOT allowed on our trails as they are all on private land. ¬†Anyone on the trails from this point forward who is not a land owner or lease holder is trespassing and may be prosecuted. ¬†Being a member of our snowmobile club does not entitle you access to the trails outside of snow season.
We have lots of summer projects we need help with and need some new blood at our meetings. ¬†The April meeting would be a good starting point.
Please do not drive your vehicles up the dirt section of Ormsbee Road looing for parking.¬† there is not place to park and the road is privately owned.¬† The Land Owners up there have been gracious enough to let snowmobiles ride up the side of the road, but if people continue to disregard the private road signs and can not park at the bottom of the hill in designated areas the road will be closed to snowmobile access.¬†
As it is now the road is bare and not a viable access point to the system for our last few days of the season.¬† Please use other parking areas.
Thanks for your support
More than half our BOD can not attend our meeting this week so we have decided to cancel the meeting for tomorrow.¬† Unfortunately we just haven’t had any snow since the last meeting and the trails remain closed.¬†
If you have any items you’d like to bring up just send me an email or post on the facebook site.¬† And hope the snow comes this weekend!
