Winter didn’t want to let go and has slowed the melting of the snow at Coleman, but the Park has to Open and we need to clean what we can.
On May 4, we will have an initial clean up day. We need to rake the grounds that were used and help get the sites put back together. If conditions allow, we can clean around the Warming Hut as well. Work is planned to start at 8AM.
Several projects in mind this summer pending GIA funding. We will keep you posted.
Trails are still open in many areas of SDR country, but grooming activity has stopped. Crews will be pulling in signage over the coming weeks while they can still get out there. Common routes this time of year are 18 north to 134 and points north to the high country. Gas pumps and parking remain open at the SDR Warming Hut, but the Dining has closed.
Thank you to all our visitors and supporters!
Drive safe, ride safe!
The Warming Hut will remain open for two more weekends (weather permitting). Trails remain good to very good in the area and the coming snowstorm will make for a great weekend ahead. Stop by to top off the tank and grab a lunch. The weekend of 3/30 will be pending weather.
Thank you to all who attended Snodeo. The feedback has been almost all positive (can’t satisfy 100%) and the factories were pleased with the turnout and the interaction with their tech staff. The down economy prevented some venders from coming but we hope to get this turned around for 2014.
Many thanks to our members for their efforts in working the event. A special thanks to Mike Goves, Jim Clyde, and Mike Adamkowski who worked from Tuesday through the the week in preparing the grounds and tending the event as well as the cleanup. We couldn’t get it done without that dedication. Thanks to South End Media for their marketing and media contributions. Let’s also give a tip of the cap to the Drew family for all the coordination and contributions to make this happen. Take a couple days off before planning the next Snodeo.

Be sure to make the Warming Hut a lunch destination while you top off the gas tanks on the weekend.
October 20 will be preparation day at Coleman State Park. Setting of trail guide poles, removal of fire pits, moving of tables, etc will be taking place.
Work will start at 8:30. If crews are large enough, we will break into other groups to take care of local preparations.
We received notice that the Club has been granted GIA funding for a new Tucker 2000. The 2004 model will be traded in. This will put the club in good shape for a few years in the grooming department.
The club’s request for funding toward a bridge replacement on Cor 134 was denied. Only minor trail maintence will be performed this year.
