SAFETY COURSE SIGN UP INFORMATION:
To sign up please go to:
If you have problems signing up through the internet you can call Webster Parks at 872-7103.
Please sign up by December 1st if you need to take the course.
Our next General Meeting of the season will be Thursday November 6th, 7:30 at the American Legion on the corner of Five Mile Line Rd and Ridge Rd in Webster.
We are moving the General Meetings back to the American Legion mainly because the attendance fell when we started moving these meetings to various locations.
We would like to increase the attendance at the General Meetings, we will provide pizza and give away one free membership (through a free raffle drawing) to meeting attendee's.
We hope we can get people interested in attending the meetings once again. For the club to continue to operate in the future we need people to step up and take over the leadership positions about every 5 years. We are at the point where we need new leaders to step up, if you have any interest in becoming an officer of the club we would love to see you at the meetings and on the trails!
Signing the trails will be taking place soon. Here is a request from Marty Lazzaro:
Last year was my last year as the sign coordinator for the Webster Ridge Runners. It really has been fun and I have learned so much about snowmobiling, built and benefited from so many relationships that I developed in the club. It is now time for someone else to step up and be a volunteer. This position can be done by one person. I know this because I have experienced it for 7 years and monitored 6 miles of trails with my crew. To some, this may seem daunting. Let me break down the duties and see who steps up to take it on or if we need to break it down to several people overseeing a certain section. Here is the list:
1. Coordinate through e-mail, volunteers in the club to make poles and paint them.
2. Coordinate the usage of the 4 wheeler and 6 wheeler.
3. Monitor trail changes and coordinate with the map guys to get aerial maps done so the crew knows how to sign them.
4. Inventory the signs every year and do the bulk sign order each year in July which saves the club a TON of money.
5. Coordinate a get together for all the sign crews to have a few beers and tell stories.
6. Log hours on the state website so that the club can benefit and save members increases in their dues.
This may look like a lot of work but again the advantages far outweigh the work load. I am at a point that I have other committments with my boys in scouting and sports that I want to spend more time in their interests. Please do not let me stress out about not having someone take this over. It is a well oiled machine with some great volunteers to work with. I truely mean that. You will feel like you do not do enough compared to the guys that really make this machine work. I would also entertain the idea of having people take on one or two of the tasks and be in communication with the person that takes the lead on it.
For years, I, as well as the members and volunteers of the signing group, have taken great pride in making the trails safe for you and your kids. Please keep this pride going. Only your enthusiasm and help will make it happen.
Please consider helping the club that has already put so much time in for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
