Here is Some FUN!   Saturday Feb. 13th and Sunday Feb. 14th

 The Washington State Snowmobile Association convention will be held in Walla Walla this year and will be having rides at Tollgate on Saturday and Sunday of that weekend.  The rides will start at Morning Creek Sno-Park at 9am.  Trailfinders will host a hot dog feed on Saturday the 13th at Bone-Chapman Shelter between 11am and 2pm.  

We are looking for locally experienced riders to lead the rides for this convention.  

Please contact Glen Warren to volunteer: flyingw@columbiainet.com

PLEASE - RIDE SAFE, SANE, and LEGAL.  Stay on marked trails around cabin areas, and on private property. We can  get shut out of trails, (we have in the past).  Locations of concern are Cross Country Ski marked area across from Andes Praire, the Lower Trail Loop, and the trail through Summer Cabins across from ski area.

This change has been at the direction of a attorney. To be voted on at 6pm 3/2/13 at the membership meeting along with the election of board members. The change is that the prior version stated that the assets would be sold in the event of a dissolution and any money left would be distributed to the current members at the time of dissolution. It turns out we can't do this and any money left must be given to another non-profit(s) as decided by the current members and board of directors.
