Yellow Thunder Snowmobile Club

Come Ride with us!


I hope that everyone has had a nice summer. Again this year, we had a much cooler summer with only a few days above 90 degrees. Many people who ordered new sleds this year have been receiving calls from their dealer that their sled has come in. Hay Days is this coming weekend, and then there are all kinds of snowmobile-related fundraisers and activities that will be taking place.

Lodi Agricultural Fair Chicken Dinner - Yellow Thunder again hosted the Saturday evening chicken dinner in conjunction with the Lodi Fair. We were not sure if the weather was going to cooperate with clouds and a threat of rain all afternoon. At the end of the day, we sold the vast majority of the chicken (900 pounds) and had a little left over for the workers to purchase. Thanks to all of the 20-some volunteers who helped with the serving, clean-up, and everything else that needed to be done. All in all, it was another successful chicken dinner at the Lodi Fair!

August Cookout - The August meeting of Yellow Thunder was held at Dennis Davis’ (a.k.a. Turkey) house on Tuesday, August 12th. As always, we had an excellent turnout and the weather was great! Thank you to Turkey and Chris for their hospitality in hosting the meeting and cookout.

Fitz’s Corn Boil - Congratulations to Fitz’s on another successful corn boil. Yellow Thunder would also like to thank Howie and Asta Blanchar for their donation to Yellow Thunder Snowmobile Club. We appreciate their continued support!

Fall Raffle - Yellow Thunder will again be having our fall cash raffle. Tickets are $10 each; only 300 tickets are available; and the top prize is $1,000. If you are looking for a ticket, please contact Scott Glaser, who is coordinating this year's raffle, at 608-592-1343.

WI SnowmobileTrail Pass - The WI Snowmobile Trail Pass program (formerly CAP/STEP) is now law with an effective date of July 1, 2015. Therefore, there will be nothing new for snowmobilers this coming season. After July 1, 2015, the cost to register a snowmobile in the state of Wisconsin will decrease to $30/3 years, down from the current $30/2 years. All snowmobiles operating in Wisconsin will be required to display a WI Snowmobile Trail Pass, which will be purchased separately from your registration decals. Non-resident trail passes will increase from the current $35/year to $50/year. The annual WI Snowmobile Trail Pass will be available to snowmobilers who are a member of a snowmobile club and AWSC for $10 from AWSC. Snowmobilers who are not members of these groups will pay $30 for the annual WI Snowmobile Trail Pass from the WDNR. Yellow Thunder will be providing more information to snowmobilers as it becomes available. For the latest, please go to
