Well, spring is finally here. Farmers are out in the fields and are anxiously getting their crops in. With a low snow winter as well as little precipitation this spring, the fire danger is extremely high. So be very careful with fires of any kind outside. Summer will be right around the corner! Remember to stay in touch with Yellow Thunder over the summer as we have important fundraisers as well as social gatherings. Enjoy the summer!
Membership Reminder - Yellow Thunder’s membership calendar year runs from September 1 to August 31 of the following year. Full membership application blanks will be mailed out for renewals/new memberships starting late summer; however, a mini-application is printed on the back of this newsletter if you care to renew now.
Summer Activities - Summer is a very busy time for Yellow Thunder Snowmobile Club, because we host the chicken dinner on Saturday afternoon- evening, July 11, which is a major fundraiser, as well as serve in the beer tent on Friday night for the Lodi Union Fair.

Each of these meetings will also include a cookout. The May 12th meeting will be at Dan Schoepp’s house. Dan lives at N1819 W. Harmon Road. To get to Dan’s house, take your route of choice to get to Fish Tales. Go past Fish Tales on 188 and take a left on W. Harmon Road to Dan’s house. 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 June 9th meeting will be at Jay & Sheri Hicks’ home.

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 awarded scholarships to Ali Latham and Natia Schoepp. Congratulations Ali and Natia, and best of luck to you in your continuing education!
Snowmobilers of the Year - Each year at the Landowner’s banquet, the Yellow Thunder Board of Directors announce individuals voted as Snowmobilers of the Year. This year's recipients were Lucy Clemens, Tony Zeman, and Scott Glaser. Congratulations and thank you to each of you for your contributions to Yellow Thunder Snowmobile Club!
Miscellaneous - For the attendance fund drawing at the April meeting, the name of Jon Paskey was drawn. 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, 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.
