Well, Mother Nature has sure not been nice to snowmobilers in Southern Wisconsin. This is the first time that I can remember that Yellow Thunder trails have not been open. Since we are already in the month of March, it is doubtful that we will be able to open the trails this year. Anything is possible, I guess. Hopefully, you have been able to travel to Northern Wisconsin to get some riding in. March is usually some of the best riding in Northern Wisconsin, so get out there and be safe when on the trails.
Annual Meeting - The Yellow Thunder annual meeting will be held March 10 at KD’s Bar & Grill, starting at 7:00 p.m. Three new board members will be elected at this meeting. If you are interested in becoming a Board member, please contact any current Board member, or a nominating committee member, who would be any of our three outgoing Board members: Ben Larrabee, Matt Morter, and Malorie Storey. The Board of Directors is looking for new, fresh ideas to bring to Yellow Thunder, so please consider becoming a Board member to keep Yellow Thunder one of the finest snowmobile clubs in the State. Thank you to our outgoing Board members for their 3 years of service to Yellow Thunder.
AWSC Convention - The AWSC Convention will be held on March 20-22 at The Abbey in Fontana, Wisconsin. Yellow Thunder will again have two delegates at the meeting to participate and come up to speed on current events. This year our attendance will be especially important as there will certainly be a lot of discussion regarding the Wisconsin Trail Pass program that will take effect on July 1, 2015. Our delegates will also vote on any business matters at the meeting. If you are interested in a download from the convention, please plan to attend our April meeting, where the delegates will provide us with an update. If you are interested in attending, registration forms can be found at www.awsc.org.
Winter Fundraiser - On February 21st, Yellow Thunder held their 14th annual winter fundraiser at the Dorf Haus in Roxbury. This event was again a huge success due to tremendous support from those who purchased raffle tickets and the generous support from local businesses. Please remember to support the local businesses that support Yellow Thunder! The proceeds from the event will assist Yellow Thunder with trail and groomer maintenance expenses. Thank you to everyone who helped sell raffle tickets; to everyone who purchased tickets; to the Dorf Haus for the great meal; and a long list of volunteers who helped make the event a success. Thanks to Gail Krause for chairing this event, and Kim Glaser for coordinating the raffle ticket sales. The grand prize winner of $3,000 was Mark Pieper. Congratulations, Mark!
Landowner Banquet - The Yellow Thunder landowner’s banquet will be held Thursday, April 16, at the Dorf Haus in Roxbury, with dinner being served at 7:30 p.m. Club members, please also remember to RSVP to Michele Wipperfurth (850-3661) by Friday, April 10, so we can get an accurate head count for dinner. Remember, the Landowner’s Banquet is a great opportunity to meet and personally thank our landowners for allowing our trail system to exist. Please come and show your support to thank our landowners for their part in allowing us the opportunity to cross their land. Also, feel free to bring photographs of your 2014-2015 snowmobiling adventures for everyone to enjoy.
Miscellaneous - As the 2014-2015 snowmobile season winds down, please remember to thank our trail bosses and volunteers for brushing the trails, installing the signs, or any other trail maintenance activities.
