Yellow Thunder Snowmobile Club

Come Ride with us!


I hope that everyone has had a nice summer. Hay Days is just around the corner, and people are starting to get plenty of mail regarding the new snowmobiles, gear, and related propaganda. Check out the Yellow Thunder calendar of events to keep you updated on all things related to snowmobiling.

Lodi Agricultural Fair Chicken Dinner - Yellow Thunder again hosted the Saturday evening chicken dinner in conjunction with the Lodi Fair. Again this year, 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, the weather held and we served up an excellent chicken dinner! 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 11th. As always, we had an excellent turnout and great camaraderie. Thank you to Turkey and Chris for their hospitality in hosting the meeting and cookout.

Fall Raffle - Yellow Thunder will again be conducting 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. The drawing will be held at the November meeting at Fitz’s on the Lake.

Membership Update - It's time once again to renew your membership in Yellow Thunder. Memberships expired August 31st. Enclosed with this newsletter is an application blank, or you can complete the application blank on the back of this newsletter, and return it along with your dues. Please indicate on your application blank if you are interested in receiving the newsletter via e-mail, which saves Yellow Thunder significant postage. Thank you in advance for renewing your membership, and your continued support of Yellow Thunder.

WI SnowmobileTrail Pass - The WI Snowmobile Trail Pass program is now law with an effective date of July 1, 2015. Attached is a flyer that summarizes the program. 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 from AWSC for $10, provided you are a member of a snowmobile club and AWSC. Snowmobilers who are not members of both organizations will pay $30 for the annual WI Snowmobile Trail Pass, and must obtain it from WDNR. For the latest, please go to

Please note a couple of important changes. - Landowners – Yellow Thunder automatically makes you an honorary member of our club; however, we do not pay your AWSC dues. To qualify for the $10 trail pass, you will need to join AWSC through a snowmobile club, which costs $10. Please contact Yellow Thunder and we will coordinate your membership. Unmarried Partners – AWSC does not recognize unmarried couples for a family membership. Trail passes are linked to the registered owner of the snowmobile. Therefore, if you each own your own snowmobile, you will each need to join AWSC through a club, if you each want to qualify for the $10 trail pass.
