The Derby Fling dinner dance & fundraiser is scheduled for January 16. Thank you to Les & Arlene Kadlec for hosting the Pizza Party and Poker Run at Twelve Pines as it was a lot of fun. Elmer Jensen, John & Audrey Stearns and others are planning the weekday guided rides this winter.

June 1993 brought some big news to the club. The DOT announce that there is no provision for a snowmobile lane in the design of the new bridge near the White Spruce. Provisions for a snowmobile bridge-lane will have to come from another source. A public meeting July 15 at Town of Lincoln is planned All should come.
Summer activities are being planned. The Weekend Away planned by John & Audrey Stearns for February 1994 at Hurley, WI is set in motion. The Annual Hayride is scheduled for September 25 leaving the Kukanich house and going to… only Leon knows where.
Notable new members for 1993-94 are Glen & Donna Miller from Conover. Elections were held in October 1993, with Jim Ayers elected President, Joe Rose VP, JoAnn Krusick Treasurer, Peggy Gaszak Secretary. Pam Harmann and Randy Walker were elected Directors.
The club did not have any contestants for Miss Sno-Eagle and Rachel Tomlanovich was asked to be Miss Sno-Eagle for 1994 which she accepted. Congratulations Rachel.
The club Snowmobile Safety Course is planned for December 3-4 at Lake Forest Resort. Mud Creek Saloon is congratulated for hosting the chili cookoff again this year.
Because of the early snowfall, the trails opened December 10, 1993. Be careful as ditches and swamps are too wet.
