Wintertfests

Hello fellow club Members.
Next weekend there are 2 fun events scheduled
and we would like your help. Come with your 2up sleds
(or 1 up with long seat) and any extra helmets you can lend.
Each year we give snowmobile rides at local Winterfests.
These are fun events and the kids (and adults too) really appreciate it!

Parma – Saturday, Jan 30, 3-530pm at the VFW Lodge, 550 Peck Road
Gates – Sunday, Jan. 31, Not sure of time, Westgate Park, Gates, on Howard Rd, oppisite Wal Mart Entrance.

This does count as a work detail.

Thanks, Marty Sauer

End of season work details

As the snow is  melting and the season is coming to an end there is still a lot of work to be done.

Trail needs to be removed, signs and stakes organized and summer equipment maintenance started and we need more people to help.

After enjoying this great season, it would be great if you helped in maintaining the trails.

Watch here and on the Facebook page for updates and upcoming work details
