Hello Summit Snowmobilers,

We have lots of things to discuss and get on your calendars.

FIRST MEETING

Our first meeting of the 2017-18 season will be November 14th 6pm at Q4U in Frisco

AVALANCHE AWARENESS

NOVEMBER 15 @ AMS, KREMMLING . . . SAVE THE DATE . . . 

First off, we will be helping out Matt Entz with a Free Avalanche Awareness Presentation!

This “Know Before You Go” presentation will be held Wednesday November 15th, 6pm at Alpine Motor Sports in Kremmling. This presentation has been developed with the Utah and Colorado Avalanche Information Centers and includes a bunch of tips and techniques related to Avalanche Safety.

This is an entertaining program focusing on 5 key elements:

  1. Get the gear.
  2. Get the training.
  3. Get the forecast.
  4. Get the picture.
  5. Get out of harm’s way. It is an awareness program hopefully leading people to pursue an on the snow training course. Matt will have his sled and pack and will share what safety equipment he carries on the snow every day. 

KICKOFF PARTY

DECEMBER 2 @ ELKS LODGE, SILVERTHORNE . . .SAVE THE DATE . . . 

Carolanne has been planning our annual kickoff party. This year it will be held December 2nd at the Elks Lodge in Silverthorne. As usual, we need additional items and donations to give away at the event, whatever you have, get it to us and we can raffle it off to raise money for groomer parts and fuel. 

CSA RAFFLE TICKETS 

We also have 400 snowmobile raffle tickets to sell. First prize is the 2018 Arctic Cat M8000 Limited, we will have tickets at the meeting, at the KBYG presentation and at the kickoff party. The proceeds of every raffle ticket sold are split between the club and CSA. We use our portion of the money to pay for fuel and groomer repairs, CSA’s portion goes toward club grooming insurance and scholarships. It is a great cause so we’d like to sell all 400 tickets. Please get with me if you want tickets but are unable to make the meeting Tuesday.

PLANNING FOR MONTHLY & OVERNIGHT RIDES

We will be planning our monthly rides and special overnight events at the club meeting. So far we have the CSA annual convention in Grand Lake January 19-21 on our schedule.
