Remember, you must be a member of a New York State snowmobile club before you register your sled, to pay $45 per
machine, or you will be charged $100 per machine at time of registration. If you register your sled at the DMV, that
county keeps the money for trails. If you register on line, the state keeps the money. Please help keep local trail
money local, and use your local DMV office.

With the predicted snow storm coming, we are all hoping for enough snow
to open the trails. But they are calling for high winds, which then blows
open fields clean of snow. Do not go out on the trail system until the club
gives the green light, as just because you see deep snow at your house,
does not mean that there is good coverage everywhere. Riding on closed
trails is TRESPASSING, and could get a trail closed by the landowner.

When trails do open, there are many reroutes from last year, with many
fields that still have crops on them, so Please follow the signs, and DO
NOT ride across open fields that are not marked to do so. If you destroy a
farmers crops, just to take a shortcut, and he closes that section, Everyone
will pay the price for your ignorance. Don't be That guy.

All club members need to get their gun raffle tickets sold and turned in by the February
meeting. This is our main fund raiser, to make money to operate the trails you need to
ride. Please sell all of your tickets. The raffle is at the February meeting at 7:30PM at the
club building on Woodside Rd.

    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.
