Sheri also reported that the AWSC is not recognizing non-married couples in the same household as both being members for the purpose of the reduced registration and trail pass.  It will depend on how the snowmobile is registered.  So both people will have to have AWSC membership.

The AWSC is allowing renewal on line.  Sheri is going to get a check card for our account we will update our clubs membership on line.

Council Report: 

Greg Swanson reported that being we haven’t been able to open the trails this year that it is especially important to turn in any trail work hours as this is how the county gets funded.  Also if you have the opportunity now please check your trails and put in additional hours if needed.  The county is still considering doing the groomer’s dinner this year.

Old Business:

Club dues are past due. The new membership/renewal form was sent with the December and January newsletter. Also unpaid members where sent an email reminder.  The form can also be found on our Facebook page or our website.  Dues need to be paid now as we need to renew our AWSC membership.  Unpaid members will not be renewed in the AWSC, this will affect the amount you will have to pay to register your sled and trail pass for next year.

The safari was cancelled due to lack of snow.

Frank Sommerfeldt is working on the website update so dues can be paid to the club on line.
