Hello High Country Snowmobilers,
Thanks to every that came out to last weekend's kick off party and thanks again to our wonderful sponsors. At the party we signed up several new members and were able to raise over $900 for the grooming program!
Welcome to our new members, here's one of our regular updates.
Our next club meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 8th at Q4U in Frisco at 6pm. We should have lots to talk about since we have a lot going on.
In grooming news, we should have our check for the Bombardier BR-275 next week. Unfortunately the other club we are purchasing the cat from won't get their check quite as fast. I have been in contact with the Arrowhead club to see if they might be able to have their cat delivered a little earlier than their check. I should know more by the meeting.
Ross and Ron went up to the trailhead earlier this week and dropped off the sled, drag and the snow poles for the trails. We are working out some kinks with the set up of the drag but hope to be off and running with this set up until the cat gets here.
We are scheduled to hold our first club snowmobile ride on January 20th. For other events, we are hosting the wounded warriors from Fort Carson at the Louis Lodge in Breckenridge, on top of Cty Rd. 450. The ride will be on Saturday January 5th. We will take them out on the trails of the Golden Horseshoe to Georgia Pass. We are looking for volunteers and anyone with an extra sled that the warriors could ride. Please reply to this e-mail if you are interested.
Snow Safety News!
Mike at Silverthorne Powersports is hosting his annual Snowmobile Safety Seminar on Friday January 18th at 6:30 to 8:00 pm. at the Summit County Senior Center in Frisco. The event will have a avalanche safety workshop provided by Summit County Search and Rescue in one room and a vendor presentations in another. We plan to attend and provide refreshments for participants and hopefully get some new members.
The CSA convention will be held at South fork, CO on January 25-27, 2013. Lots of great riding in the area and The San Juan's have been getting very good snow recently. There is still time to register if you are interested. Information on the event can be found on the CSA web site, www.snowmobilecolo.com. I will be staying at the Ute Bluff Lodge if you get thirsty.
CSA's sponsored Pink Ribbon Ride will be at Grand Lake on March 8th and 9th 2013. The ride is a great fund raiser for the Pink Ribbon Riders, a group which donates money directly to men and women with breast cancer. Information can be found at http://www.pinkribbonriders.com/wp/snow-run-tour-usa/.
Hope to see you at the next club meeting on the 8th. Have a great holiday season and a safe new year!
