Well, the 2012-2013 snowmobile season is a wrap. Don’t forget to summerize your snowmobile(s) this spring, because it may save you a lot of time and troubles before next winter. It’s time to think about all of those summer projects and enjoying the summer months. Summer is busy for Yellow Thunder because we have the Lodi Fair chicken dinner! Our summer meetings will be at locations where we can meet outdoors and hopefully enjoy the weather. Enjoy the summer everyone, and keep in touch with Yellow Thunder.
Membership Reminder - Yellow Thunder club memberships are for the calendar year of September 1-August 31 of the following year. Membership application blanks will be mailed out for renewals/new memberships starting late summer.
Summer Fundraisers - Summer is a very busy time for Yellow Thunder Snowmobile Club, because we host the chicken dinner on Saturday afternoon-evening, July 13, which is a major fundraiser, as well as serve in the beer tent on Friday night for the Lodi Union Fair. This year, Madison County will be playing on Friday evening vs. Saturday, so the Lodi Fair Board has asked if we can recruit as much help as possible for serving beer and soda, for it will be a very busy evening. If you can donate some time to help work these events, please contact Kris Krause (592-3395) for the chicken dinner, or any of the Board of Directors to assist in the beer tent.
Summer Meetings - Please review the Calendar of Events for 2013-2014, or the Yellow Thunder newsletters, for the locations of our summer meetings. Again this year, there are three meetings that will be held at various members' homes. Please bring a folding chair and your beverage of choice to each meeting. Each of these meetings will also include a cookout. For the June 11th meeting at the Krause residence, Yellow Thunder will be providing the brats and hamburgers, as well as plates, condiments, and eating utensils. The grills will be hot at 6:00 pm; we will eat around 6:30 pm; and the meeting will start at 7:00 pm. Please bring a dish to pass or munchies. The Krause’s live at W10885 County Road V, about a mile east of Okee (take Hwy 113 toward Okee, and turn right on Ryan Road, then ˝ mile up Ryan Road to V, then east on V about a mile. If you need additional directions, please call Kris or Gail at 592-3395.
YT Scholarship - Yellow Thunder was pleased to acknowledge our scholarship winners this year at the Landowners’ Banquet. For the past 10 years, our club has awarded scholarship money to deserving students who are involved in our snowmobile club, community, and schools. This year, the Board of Directors decided to award three scholarships, and the recipients were Jaime Benson, Autumn Paulson, and Jarrett Schoepp. Congratulations Jamie, Autumn, and Jarrett, and best of luck to you in your continuing education!
Snowmobiler of the Year - Each year at the Landowner’s banquet, the Yellow Thunder Board of Directors announce individuals who have been voted as Snowmobiler of the Year. This year's recipients were Chad Wipperfurth and Sheri Hicks. Congratulations to each of you for your contributions to Yellow Thunder Snowmobile Club!
Miscellaneous - Reminder, this is a bi-monthly newsletter, as will be the next two. Our next newsletter will be the July-August issue and will be published in late June. The name of Don Dohm was drawn for the attendance fund at the April meeting. Since he was not present, the fund will carry over to the next meeting.
