Welcome to 2022! Lots of club events happening in the next month. We are holding our monthly meeting Tuesday, Jan. 11th. 7pm at the Casselton Vets Club. We have a couple big events coming up that will be discussed.
- Family Fun ride is planned for next Sunday to the warming shack! Sunday, Jan. 16th. extended forecast shows temps in the mid 20s! This should be a nice day on the snow for the family and our club!
- Pre-SnowJam planning. SnowJam is Saturday, Feb. 12th. Talk about all aspects and assign duties. We will be holding our next meeting the week prior to make sure things are buttoned up.
- Trail signing. is 100% complete and was inspected and passed in December! thank you volunteers that got it done!
- Trail Grooming. Snow cover has been strong! We groomed the entire trail system in December, which doesnt happen very often. Unfortunately, blowing and drifting snow has ruined most areas. Our groomer was down for repairs this last week. Hopefully we can get back out later this week. Reports will follow.
