Just a reminder..... A snowmobile club is a 365 day club. Help is needed all year round, so 
you can enjoy it in the winter. A big THANKS to our club officers and leaders for all you 
do. Without  you, we would not have trails to ride. We must also thank all of the 
landowners, for the privilege to use their property, for our enjoyment.
