Yellow Thunder Snowmobile Club

Come Ride with us!


MARCH 2014 NEWSLETTER

Hopefully you were able to get out on the trails in late January and early February to ride the trails! When the thaw came the week of February 17, we were optimistic that our trails might survive the warm weather, but with clear sunny skies, our trails took a beating. Maybe we will get some additional snow in March to allow our trails to open again. If not, the trails in Northern Wisconsin are reported to be the best that they have been in a long time. Get out and enjoy the last several weeks of winter, and be safe on the trails.

Annual Meeting - The Yellow Thunder annual meeting will be held March 11 at Mickey D’s in Dane (note location change), 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: Brian Bennett, Scott Glaser, and Kris Krause. 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 28-30 at the KI Convention Center/Hotel Sierra Hyatt located in Green Bay. Yellow Thunder will again have two delegates at the meeting to participate and come up to speed on current events. 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 15th, Yellow Thunder held their 13th 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 Darrell Statz from Dane.

Landowner Banquet - The Yellow Thunder landowner’s banquet will be held Thursday, April 3, 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 Monday, March 31, 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 2013-2014 snowmobiling adventures for everyone to enjoy.

Miscellaneous - As the 2013-2014 snowmobile season winds down, please remember to thank our trail bosses and groomer operators for their hard work in maintaining the trails. Thank you to all involved in our trail maintenance/grooming program. The names of Gary and Paula Radl were drawn for the attendance fund at the February meeting. Since they were not present, the fund will carry over to the next meeting.
