Annual Outdoor Clubs Blood Drive Challenge

September has arrived and our annual challenge to other outdoor clubs to donate blood in the slowest giving month of the year has begun. This year we have four other clubs involved this year. The Southern Oregon Nordic Club, Slopes and Trails, Jackson County Horseman’s Association and the HOGs.

Now our club hasn’t won this competition in five years. Last year we lost by one donation. Could that one donation have been yours? Not only would that donation have led to the Rogue Snowmobilers being champ’s last year it more importantly would have saved three lives. Let’s get our competitive juices flowing and call to make an appointment today. If you can’t give yourself, I challenge you to find someone who can give for you!

To make an appointment go to http://www.redcrossblood.org/ , call 800-733-2767 or contact your local American Red Cross Representative Christina at 541-842-4707.

Our first 2014 gallery has arrived. Please check out the 03/30/2014 outing under the 2014 gallery.

Last Hurrah

Come and enjoy one last weekend (or day) with the Rogue Snowmobilers as we camp out at Thousand Springs.  We will have the Last Hurrah weekend whether we have snow or not on April 12th and 13th.  The club will provide hamburgers and hot dogs on the Saturday, April 12th at 4 p.m.  Please bring a side dish and your own drinks.  Despite the low snow levels we have had this season we still would like to get everybody together for one last day.  We will have many activities such as a ping pong tournament a washer’s tournament and I believe by that time the OHV system should be open out of Thousand as well.  Of course the socializing and the food will be great like always.  Come up for the weekend or the day for great times and great people. Hope to see you all there!

Last General Meeting

Our last General Meeting for this snow year will be on April 1st at 6:00 p.m. at D & S Harley.  If you have never made a meeting before, you should make this one!

First we will have a great BBQ (chicken and tri-tip) dinner at 6:00 prepared by the club.  All we ask of you is to bring at least one canned food item per person that we will donate to Access Food Bank.  Better yet, since you spent very little on gas and oil this season, bring more than one can if you can afford it.  Bring a case!  Protein rich foods are the best.

We will also have samples from Master Stitch of t-shirts, sweat shirts, hats and beanies to look at and you can order yours.

Our meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. and this will be a fun one.  We will discuss our events for April and through the summer.  We will present the Candlelighters with $5,390 that we raised for them at our Pie Auction in February.  We will also have some more super-secret surprise big announcement stuff with some of the Founders of our club attending the meeting.  In case you didn’t know, the club was founded in 1972, 42 years ago.

So come out for a great dinner and some fun super-secret happenings.  Don’t forget your canned food!

Snobusters Ride

This ride scheduled for March 29th and 30th has been cancelled due to no snow at Thousand Springs.

Candlelighter Ride Cancelled

Unfortunately this has been a record year for lack of snow.  Even I, as an eternal optimist, have to now admit that we may not get much, if any, snow this season.  All activities on the schedule are up in the air about what might happen.  Hopefully next year will make up for this and give us record amounts of snow and a season that lasts until June.

CANDLELIGHTER RIDE CANCELLED

Unfortunately we have to cancel the Candlelighters ride on March 15th since we don’t have any snow at the shelter.  We had a discussion at our General Meeting Tuesday on what we might be able to do for the kids later on this year to replace this ride.  Some ideas were to take them boating during our annual summer camp trip, the Family Fun Center, Rogue Air Park or Go Kart Hero.  We are talking with the Candlelighters about what would be a good activity for the kids and will let you know what we decide and when it will happen.

SNOBUSTERS RIDE

We have not yet cancelled this ride but barring a miracle snowstorm it will not take place as planned.  If the Bend area has snow it may be moved to Bend.

LAST HURRAH FAMILY RIDE

Again, we have not cancelled this event either but it most likely will be cancelled or changed to a camp trip/work party.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL, FACEBOOK AND THE WEBSITE FOR CHANGES TO THE SCHEDULE.  PLEASE LET THOSE WITHOUT ACCESS TO THESE SITES KNOW AS WELL.
