Dear Members:

We had 29 members at our January meeting. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, February 8th at Larry’s Chinese/American at 66 North Street in Pine Bush at 7:30 pm.

We will be holding elections in March so volunteers are needed to be on a nominating committee. The positions up for election are: President, Vice President, Secretary, Asst. Secretary, Treasurer and 3 Board of Directors positions. The Board of Directors positions are for a three year term. Anyone interested in running for any position, please speak up at the February meeting.

** NYSSA raffle tickets are available. Please see me to get some. Only $5 each.      Tickets and Money will need to be turned in at the April meeting! Drawings: April 2017 at the NYSSA Forum.
** Club Super 50/50 Raffle tickets are available – $5 each – See me at the meeting

The Club Trip to Lowville (Ridgeview Lodge) was the weekend of Jan 28th. We had about 33 members attend. Thankfully, it snowed all weekend long! If you have pictures, please email them to me!

We haven’t ruled out a second Club trip; we’d just like some suggestions from the members on where they would like to go.

Again, the NYSSA/ACSA scholarship application is available. There are 2 – $500 scholarships and 2 – $1000 scholarships.   The application must be received by February 17, 2017. An application is attached to this email and I will have a few applications available at the next few meetings or get it online at

Governor Cuomo announced the free weekend in NY will be Feb 3rd -5th. The only benefit we get from this weekend is to ride in Old Forge without the requirement of the additional Trail Permit!   Something to consider!

Please remember to save all your gas receipts for gas used in your snowmobile! We are entitled to a refund of $.08/gallon! I just sent in receipts and we’ll be getting back $29, so save those receipts!! Funds must be donated into our Club.

Parents, we are looking to form a Youth Snowmobile Club – we are asking the kids to name their new Club. A form is attached — if you can print it out and ask you children to come up with a Name!   Or email the suggestions!

For Sale list is attached……….one new addition!
