Hey Hey! The Rural Cass club is holding their monthly meeting Tuesday, October 13th, (tomorrow night) at the Harwood Grill and Saloon, 7pm. We will have plenty of space to social distance, and the Grill has a great menu!
We will have a general overview of club happenings that need to get done before the snow flies! such as: stuffing and mailing membership postcards recap of Wheels kick off to winter event we took part in recap north loop storage container Sept clean up new membership drive/update Trail sign building/sorting, possible trail changes, groomer updates, ND state ride we are co-hosting, family fun rides and hopefully meet a few new local sledders!
We will hold our first club meeting of the season Tuesday, September 8th, 7pm, at Happy Trails Tavern, Argusville, ND. We will be meeting in the backroom, (but will also be out at the clubs new Storage Container located just behind Happy Trails Tavern) as this space will allow us to maintain social distancing so everyone can feel comfortable attending. We would love to see as many members there as possible, but due to the current situation, we understand if anyone is not comfortable attending. The primary agenda items include:
Wheel’s “Kick-off to winter event” Friday, Sept. 11th- Sat. 12th. Wheel’s is again offering us a space to set up a booth and talk to snowmobilers about joining the club. We plan to have a table set up both days and could use volunteers to help man it. Club President Spencer Symington has ordered us a club logo’ed table cloth and we will have membership forms, clothing, maps, etc. Last year we did get 2-3 signed up at this event, and there was pretty light traffic as there was a Bison home game that day. Wheel’s is also holding a swap meet, with locals vendors setting up for that as well. Hopefully that will increase the memberships!
