New Business:

Parade of Lights—Another opportunity for fun!  Dakota Drifters is registered for the parade.  The parade is December 6th, a Thursday evening.  The theme is Hollywood Christmas.  Ideas?  Safety trailer? Groomer?

Trail Marking—Bo is getting emails all the time that trail marking is getting done.  We have a request for help for 77 to the interstate past farmers implement.  Ray and Craig would also like help.  It was stated that marking trail is the clubs biggest fundraiser and it is important to have fun. 

Christmas Party—2nd Wednesday @ Prairie Lanes.    M/S Dan/McLane up to $250 on door prizes for Christmas party, motion passed. 


Decision on the trailer for the state is due by December 15.  Logo is 18 inches.

New snowmobile trail maps are available.

Craig mentioned doing a Rapid City/up north trip and reminded club members that he would be happy to coordinate.  If it is going to happen, we need to pick a weekend as they are filling up.
