Hope you had an awesome summer! Now is the time to start thinking about winter (and rejoining the club)!
Joining the club locally or online, gets much needed funds to the club – the earlier you renew your membership, the earlier we get money. So, please renew now! You can join/renew at club meetings or go to Hebeler’s Sales and Service and join there (these two methods save us credit card fees and saves you a $1 service fee). You can also join by going to (joining via the online system includes a $1 Service Fee) If you need help with the system, call Gary at 807-7002.
While renewing, please consider making a donation to the NYSSA Trail Defender Fund. This fund is established to help clubs fight for access to trails throughout New York State and is solely used for that purpose. Keeping trails open for us and our children is worth a few bucks. You can make a donation in person at any club meeting or you can select the Trail Defender ‘donation’ on NYSSA’s online membership site while renewing your membership or you can donate here: Additionally, if you ride trails built and maintained by other clubs, please consider joining them-it is considered a secondary membership (and is generally only $24 as opposed to the $30 primary membership-as NYSSA accepts no fees from secondary memberships).
The club wishes to thank Pete (Chip) Fleckenstein and Paul Prior for stepping up and taking on the duties of Trail Coordinator. They will be sharing the duties. We still need some people willing to Captain a section of trail. We have a few available. If you are interested, please call Pete (628-4841) or Paul (310-8920).
Junior Sno-Chiefs News: The Juniors are planning on taking up a snowmobile rebuild and to attend some parades and of course, build and mark their section of trails. Trail build will be on Sunday, November 3rd-meet at 8:00 A.M. at the

Our trail, C-4B will likely have to be moved as construction will start, sooner or later, on the field across from Brauer’s in Pendleton. We have laid out a plan to move the trail onto the Power line to meet the Bike Path (C-4D/S-41), but now we need to do the legwork. We need help, especially from people living and knowing people in Pendleton. If you can assist, please call Pete (628-4148) or Paul (310-8920).

Want to help out on the trails? We will be building the trail system in the next few months. This is a great way to get to know the trails and meet some of your fellow club members.
