Well, this season is a wrap, and Mother Nature was not real kind to us again. We were able to open up and groom the trails a couple times, but it never lasted. So, now it’s time to think Spring, and get outside and perform the annual spring maintenance of your sleds and put them away for the summer. Summer is a very busy time for Yellow Thunder, so be sure to stay in touch by watching the newsletter and the calendar of events.
Board of Director’s Meeting - On March 22, 2016, the Yellow Thunder Board of Directors met to conduct their annual New Board/Old Board meeting. Welcome new board members Chris Garber, Matt Morter, and Gary Tupper. Our outgoing Board members include Jenny Rake, Dan Schoepp, and Troy Zeman. Thank you to Jenny, Dan, and Troy for your services to Yellow Thunder. The Board of Directors has elected new Officers for 2016 2017, and they are as follows: President – Scott Glaser; Vice-President – Chris Garber; Treasurer – Alex Ballweg; and Secretary – Ali Latham. The New Board officially takes over after the Landowners’ Banquet. The Board of Directors has also completed the calendar of events for 2016-2017, which is being distributed with this newsletter. This calendar will also available here.
Snowmobilers of the Year / Scholarship Winners - Each year, the Board of Directors elects two recipients for the Snowmobiler of the Year awards, for their outstanding support of Yellow Thunder. In addition, two deserving club members pursuing secondary education are also selected for receipt of a $250 scholarship. Please attend the Landowners’ banquet to find out who this year’s recipients are, and to congratulate them!
Landowner Banquet – The Yellow Thunder Landowners banquet will be held Thursday, April 14, at the Dorf Haus in Roxbury, with cocktails at 7:00 p.m. and dinner being served at 7:30 p.m. Columbia County Conservation Warden, Ryan Volenberg, will be guest speaker. For non-landowners, please RSVP to Michele Wipperfurth (850-3661) by Monday, April 11, so we can get an accurate head count for dinner, and your cost will be $10 per person payable at the door. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and personally thank our landowners for allowing our trail system to exist. Please consider joining us to personally thank them for allowing us to cross their property.
AWSC Convention – The AWSC convention was held March 18-20 at The Radisson Hotel in Green Bay. Please attend the next meeting to get a full report on the Convention from the two Yellow Thunder delegates who were in attendance at this year’s event.
Odds & Ends – The March meeting attendance fund winner was John Paskey. Since he was not present, the attendance fund will carry over to the next meeting. Remember, by attending the meetings and if your name is drawn, you could take home $100! Reminder: Newsletters are usually sent out about the last week of the month or the first week of the publication month, and don't forget, the next three newsletters will be bi-monthly (May-June, July-August, and September-October). Have a great summer, and remember that YT meets year-round and has several summer activities to carry things along—Lodi Fair Chicken Dinner, Lodi Fair Beer Tent, Adopt-A-Hwy pick-ups, Good Sam Birthday Party, and the monthly meetings/cook-outs. Yellow Thunder will again be providing the meat on the grill at each of our summer meeting/cook-out locations.
