June 2015

Dear Fellow Snowseekers,

I would like to introduce our new Executive committee and Board members that were elected last month, they will be taking office in September this year. Officers: Pres. Norb Belsterling, Vice Pres. Art Amsler, Treas. Lori Talik, Sec. Mike Steinmetz and our Board Members: Mark Mueller, Scott Thomas, Ken Kelly, David Ford, Richard Hayes.

There was some discussion at the last few meetings about the clubs point system, we will be updating the point system to keep the yearly dues at the current amount which is $100.00 per year for a full member. All members will be responsible to sell there 10 Spring Bash tickets at $20.00 each and 10 Christmas Raffle tickets at $10.00 each. No tickets will be returned, if you don’t want to sell your tickets, then you get to purchase them yourself. If each family in the club would sell 18 tickets for any of the raffles, the club would be sold out of tickets. This is what has been keeping the dues at the current rate for the last few years. It will be going to the board for final approval, and then to general membership for a vote to change the club by-laws. It has been decided to keep it simple and easy to manage.

Our Buildings and Grounds Committee has scheduled a work weekend, May 29-30 at the clubhouse to address some of the repairs needed from last winter. The social room needs a roof replaced and the inside ceiling replaced, along with some other minor repairs. This is when the clubhouse gets a good cleaning and ready for our summer activities. We will also be looking into replacement of the two garage doors, if anyone has some input, please bring it up at the June meeting or get in touch with Scott Thomas.

The club is still looking for a wounded vet, to donate the proceeds from the Black and Gold money raised at the spring bash this year. If anyone knows of somebody that is in need, please summit there name to the club. It was motioned and approved to donate a large portion of our charity fund to Scott Wilkes nephew’s daughter Isabella, she is 4 and has leukemia. The family is struggling and would really appreciate to help. Its time like this that makes you feel proud to belong to such a great club and with outstanding group of people.

The nice weather is finally here and it’s time to get out and enjoy it!

Sincerely,
Norb

10th Annual Thunder in the Forest

May 2015

Dear Fellow Snowseekers,

This year’s winner of the Spring Bash $2000.00 dollar grand prize was William Yakin. The day was absolutely perfect, we had a great turnout, the food again was delicious, and we were able to sell all the tickets that were unsold at the start of the bash.  It was really nice to see everyone pitching in and helping with this event. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members who helped make this year bash a great success.  I can’t wait to hear the final report from the event.

This month we are trying something new. The weekend of May 15-16, we will be offering our clubhouse for accommodation to outsiders that are in the area for the Marionville VFD spring Tour De Forest.  This event will be structured a lot like our July bike run. Please see the attached flyer and let your family and friends know of this next event.  More details will be discussed at the meeting Thursday night.

The Good Friday shoot this year, again was a big turnout, everybody had a great time even though it was a little wet this year, thanks Dean.

I would like take this time to welcome new members Stan and Lisa Grubbs.   Please introduce yourself the next time you see them and make them feel welcomed.

One of our founding members, Dale Kline, is out of the hospital, has started rehab, and will be heading home this week. He still has a lot of rehab to do at home, Dale will have home health nurses, PT, OT, and speech here at home. It’s hard to believe he has been in the hospital and rehab since March 22, Ginny says he is feeling much better, but is still weak. Thanks you all for your prayers, cards, phone calls and visits.  After 60 years I think I’ll keep him, says Ginny, and YOSHIE (their dog) misses him.

Congratulation also goes out to Michael Steinmetz who is a new grandfather, his daughter Cheyanne gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Nico 7lbs 1oz.

This months’ meeting is our election meeting, we will have two open spots on our executive committee, the secretary and treasurer positions will need replacements, Loretta and Sandy have put in more than their allotted time of three years. They have done a great job and will be missed, (maybe they could switch positions and do another three years). We will also be voting on all the positions. That is four executive officers and five board members.  Please keep in mind that these are the people that oversee your club, make decisions, and keep us making right turns instead of left turns.

The nice weather is finally here and it’s time to get out and enjoy it!

Sincerely
Norb

April 2015

Dear Fellow Snowseekers,

I would like to open this month’s newsletter with an important reminder that our big fundraiser is coming up very soon. We have less than a couple weeks to have everything come together and make it a success again this year.  But there is still a lot of work to be done, so let’s get started.  The most important tasks that requires all of our efforts is to continue to sell, sell, sell, and sell more tickets.  We need to have every ticket sold before the event on April 11, 2015. Over the past years we have had a few tickets that were unsold before this date, and luckily we were able to sell those at the door.  The biggest setback has been, and always will be, MEMBERS that show up the day of the fundraiser with unsold tickets.  Please, if you are having trouble selling the allotted 10 tickets let us know.  We have members that are able to buy or sell more tickets, and can help get every seat filled.   Everybody has neighbors, family relatives, friends, business associates, or someone who owes you a favor, therefore sell them a ticket. This is a great event to show everyone what a small group of snowmobile enthusiast can do when we all work together.

Ginny and Joni are still looking for donations for the Chinese auction, lottery tree, and gift card baskets. These two ladies put a lot of time and effort into the event, and help raise the most money with their raffles so please help support them.  Bring a couple of lottery tickets, gift cards, or anything of any value and watch these two make it work. If you are creative, or have a passion for making gift baskets then please go ahead and show us your talent by crafting a gift basket of your own.  Not only will you impress everyone with your skills, but I know Ginny and Joni would also greatly appreciate the help.  At the last meeting we decided that the Black and Gold Vet Fundraiser we do every year will still continue this year, however instead of donating the money to an organization we will give the money to a local vet in need.  If anybody knows of someone please let us know.  We will be deciding who to make the donation to in the near future.

Help is needed with the set-up and food preparation before the event, during the event, and after the event. Most of the details will be discussed at this month’s meeting so please attend.  If you cannot make the meeting then contact Jim Wright. If you are unable to make it to the event due to work schedule or a prior commitment, we still need help with the set up the night before and all of Saturday.    It would be nice to see some of our shyer members faces

Something new will be happening at the end of our club outings and gatherings.  Drew Amsler is preparing a slide show presentation, with the help of Mike Steinmetz, which will display some of our club’s most memorable moments.  If you have any photos on your smartphone that you wish to share, then please bring your phone and cord with you to the meeting in order for Drew to download these photos onto his laptop. Drew will also be updating our website and is looking for photos for that.  Please share any snowmobile pictures, as well as any of our functions’ pictures.  Contributing pictures to slideshow and website will also help Sandy with this year’s Club Yearbook.  She will have access to the photos and will be able to print any she needs.  If you want to share a picture for the Yearbook, or be on the BIG screen then this is your chance.

The Good Friday shoot this year is April 3, the day after our meeting.  If you plan to attend please call Dean Cercone ASAP.  He needs a count for the shooting range in order for them to have enough staff and food for our group.  This is always a great outing with fellow members and friends each year.

I would like take this time to welcome the Braden family that has recently joined our Club.  Brian and his wife Erin have two children Abby and Griffin.  Please introduce yourself the next time you see them and make them feel welcomed.

I want to let everyone know that one of our founding members, Dale Kline, is in the hospital.  Dale recently had a stroke and also suffered a heart attack, so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.  We all wish for him to make a speedy recovery.

Since I started writing the newsletter in September I always closed with “Think Snow” or “Let it Snow.”  Now that we are approaching the spring and summer seasons my closing line will need a small altercation.  With that being said…

“Get out and enjoy the mild weather”

Sincerely
Norb

Dear Fellow Snowseekers,

We would like to begin this month’s newsletter by congratulating Rich Hayes who has accepted the position of District Regional Director.  We will be sending out a formal letter to the PSSA and Pymatuning Trail Blazers to make Rich’s position official.  Rich is very active with our trail system, he has worked with the ANF, PSSA, and State Officials with many problems concerning not only the trails, but also many other club related issues.  Thank you Richie for volunteering more of your valuable time so that we may better our club with knowledge and resolve any issues. We are proud of you and know that you will do a great job representing our club and district.

Updates to be aware of:
1.) The new fire escape routes designed for the clubhouse.  These new routes will be posted in every upstairs rooms. Please take the time to review and know these new escape routes, and instruct any guests or family members staying at the clubhouse to do the same.  Knowing the new exit routes will help ensure that members and non-members exit the clubhouse as safely as possible in case of emergency.  If occupying another member’s room, make sure you leave the room in the same condition as how it was prior to the stay.  Also please make note that members are responsible for their guests at the club house.

2.) Darryl and Dennis Miller have applied for room 9 and it was awarded to them.

Good news!  Our Annual Spring Bash fundraiser is approaching rather quickly.  I would like to remind everyone that Ginny is still in need of items and gift cards to be donated for the many wonderful baskets she creates to be raffled.  Joni is requesting lottery tickets for the lottery tree, along with black and gold items for her Wounded Veteran’s Basket.  Please be generous, these baskets that Ginny and Joni construct help provide for the monetary funds that are raised during this event for our charities.

In the past, this fundraiser has proven to be very successful for our club.  It helps tremendously with the expenses that are accrued to maintain the club house, but also with keeping the dues for club members to a minimum.  With that being said it is vital that ALL members make the best effort to sell all, if not more, than their designated tickets.  If you do sell all of your tickets and need additional tickets, please contact Scott Wilke or Jim Wright.  Please bring all sold tickets to this month’s meeting.  SELL SELL SELL!!!

I wish to thank everyone in advance for their cooperation and help with this event.  Remember, this annual fundraiser not only helps our club, but also the many charities that we are able to donate to from the raffle baskets that Ginny and Joni take the time and effort to put together.

“Always in our thoughts, forever in our hearts”

Lastly, it is devastating that once again I am writing to you with a heavy heart.  The PA Snowseekers recently lost a great, kind, long-time member and friend.  Mr. John Hart passed away on February 18, 2015.  Judy and I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the Hart Family.

As Always let’s go out and enjoy the snow.

February 2015

Dear Fellow Snowseekers,

Looks like our New Year’s wish has come true, the area has been recently covered with that wonderful white, fluffy stuff called snow. For the next few weeks we will be in the peak of the riding season, and already the stories of weekend rides are starting to spread. Many of us have been out in groups riding and enjoying the ANF, Erie, New York, and Laurel Mountain trials. Within the next month groups are planning to travel to farther away destinations.   Please remember to be safe, have fun, and tell us all about your experiences.

I want to thank all the members who responded and helped make the updated changes to our membership roster. The current list is attached to this newsletter (For Members Only).  There will be some extra copies of the roster available at next month’s meeting for anyone who is interested in having a hard copy.  For those members that do not have access to the internet, the call list is going to be switched over to a group text message instead. This now will allow the notification to go out to all with just one text. We will no longer need members to call one number at a time and leave messages on answering machines.  If you would like to get notifications through text messages please let me know.

At last month’s meeting we discussed having the “fundraiser” chairperson only withdraw once from our fundraising account to start their campaign.  They will need to keep track of all their expenses, ticket sales, and miscellanist costs.  We want to proceed with this in this particular way in order for the chairperson to have the exact profit figure for the final report at the general membership meeting. This will take quite a bit of work off of our treasurer, and will enable the chairperson to have a breakdown of the money coming in, the money going out, and give an exact profit figure. It may take some time for everyone to get used to doing this in this way, but hopefully in the long run it will help with all of the financial question of what and where the money is being spent.

Once again Judy and I are saddened to hear of the two former Snowseekers that are no longer with us. We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the Mary Jane Hyre Family and Judy Brizendine Family.

 

As Always let’s go out and enjoy the snow.

January 2015

Dear Fellow Snowseekers,

First thing I would like to wish everybody a Happy New Year.  May the coming months bring you all good health, wealth, and good times with family and friends.  Most importantly let the new year bring a few snowy months to make 2015 a great snowmobile season!

Looking back over the past month, it was one of our busiest months of the year.  With that being said let’s get started with some of the highlights.

Our Christmas meeting began the Holiday season.  We had quite a few great gifts for the raffle and I would like to thank all who donated gifts.  Not only was it a fun meeting, it also raised more than $300.00 towards Ginny’s charities.

December also held the PSSA Power Sports Show West.  Many of our club members that were able to attend the show enjoyed the many booths and displays.  There were great deals on clothing, accessories, trailers, and a look at the new sleds for 2015. Also there was the opportunity to meet some of our neighboring clubs in the area, and speak with them about their trails, clubhouses, and outings. Our safety instructors Art and Jack did a great job again this year, and had a nice size class of eager young snowmobilers interested in learning how to operate a snowmobile safely. Our booth had to be one of the best ones at the show, not only was it a great location, but they also gave us a larger spot than some of the others. Thanks to all the members who helped with the planning, booth set up, ticket sales, and cleanup.  There are too many names of all the volunteers to list, but I am very appreciative to those who were able to help.  Cannot wait to start planning again for next year’s show.

We can’t forget our Breakfast with Santa.  For all those who welcomed Santa, this year had to be one of our best turn outs yet.  We had close to 30 children and twice as many adults at the breakfast, and everyone young and old had a good time. It was nice to see so many of our members’ family and friends.  There were even a few founding members that attended breakfast.  Again many thanks to all the members who helped make it a successful breakfast and memorable time for the children.

Congratulations goes to this year’s winner of our fall raffle Jay Wack, hopefully he picks the new Polaris snowmobile, and comes out with us riding.

There has also been some improvements at the clubhouse recently, we now have a new wood burner in the social room which was badly needed and a new TV in the living room.

Judy and I would like to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to The Craig Hocanson’s Family.   Craig’s father-in-law passed away on December 26, 2014.  May you take comfort in knowing that an angel is watching over you and your family.

As Always Think Snow

December 2014

Dear Fellow Snowseekers,

I would like to open this month’s newsletter with great news!  There is snow in the area!!!! Even though the trail systems aren’t open until December 14th, any members with decent sized back yards may have already enjoyed their first ride of the season.

To continue with the upbeat news, the club held the Thanksgiving Neighborhood Dinner and work weekend on November 8th.  We had an exceptional turnout of members and non-members that pulled together and helped with the wood cutting, cooking, club house and garage maintenance.  We were able to cut and stack all the fire wood for the season, repair the roof of the social room, along with having the tile work in the men’s bathroom completed.  To add to the list of improvements, the garage had electrical updates and was cleaned, which allows room for four more sleds this season!  Also we no longer have problems with cell phone service inside our clubhouse thanks to the new equipment that was installed.   The highlight of the weekend was of course our Thanksgiving dinner which was exceptional.  Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to make the dinner and work weekend a great success.

Our December 4 meeting, as always, will be our Christmas meeting. Please bring unwrapped gifts in the amount of $5.00 or more.  These gifts will then be raffled off throughout the meeting.  The money raised will go to the Salvation Army’s Needy Children.  Also since it’s the season of giving we would like members to donate can goods, baking supplies, cereal, hygiene products, disposal diapers, or cash donations in order to bring more merriment to those less fortunate.  Please be generous so we can help the families that find themselves in need with the upcoming holidays.

This year’s breakfast with Santa will be held Saturday, December 20th at 9:30 am until 11:30 am.  Location will be St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 215 North Main Street, Zelienople.  Please fill out the reservation flyer that was sent in October and return to Loretta Hayes or email as soon as possible.  The information that is needed is Number of Adults Attending____, Child’s or Children’s Name ________ with their ages, _____ and Gift suggestions_______.  This is free to Snowseekers’ children and grandchildren. The cost is $10.00 to any non-members to cover a gift.

Once again I would like to mention the PSSA Power Sports Show West.  This will be held in Monroeville at the Expose Center December 12th thru the 14th.  Please contact Scott Wilke if you can volunteer your time, or have any pics from the ANF, to make this event another Snowseeker achievement.  We are looking for items for donation to create a gift basket.  Joni will be working her magic with these items in order to create a one-of-a-kind basket to be raffled off at our booth the last day of the show.

Last but not least, everyone should have received their tickets for the Snowmobile/Quad Raffle and the Spring Bash.  Please make every effort to sell ALL the tickets that you have received, these two events have proven to benefit our club house immensely.

Judy and I would like to express our deepest Sympathy and Condolences to The Dave Ford Family and The Scott Thomas Family. Dave’s Mother passed away on November 16, 2014 and Scott Thomas’s Father passed away on November 23, 2014.  May your heart and soul find comfort and peace it needs during this time in your lives.

As Always Think Snow

July 2014

Hello All!

By the time this reaches you, we will be through July with another summer waning and a new snowmobile season fast approaching. Hard to believe!

On July 12th, a meeting was held at Walt’s Tavern in Conneaut and hosted by the McHugh’s. This was our second meeting at Walt’s and was attended by some 40 Snowseeker’s and friends. We had a good cookout on a splendid day and even managed to get some things done, after which we enjoyed a boat ride on beautiful Conneaut Lake and a bon-fire at the McHugh’s later. Thank you Mike and Lauraine for hosting and Walt’s for providing camping and the meeting pavilion! While we were busy at the meeting, Scott Thomas & Bruce Moody were at the clubhouse mowing & weed wacking in prep for Thunder weekend, so I guess I’ll have to excuse them from attending…Thank’s guy’s!

As a friendly reminder, your annual due’s are due in July and will be late in September. Please see Loretta and take care of this ASAP. Same goes for all garage space holders. Thank you!

Bill Eastly has set our Annual Highland Open Golf Outing at Kane Country Club for September 6th, with tee times starting at 12:02. Please let Bill know if you and your group plan on attending. This is always a good time and another Snowseeker tradition.

PSSA will be hosting a 2 separate Powersport Show’s this fall, the usual East show October 24th through the 26th in York, Pa., and an additional West show in Monroeville on December 12th through the 14th. This is the same show we had a booth at last year in Lebanon, PA., where we learned a lot. The event is under new management and should be a lot more convenient for Snowseeker’s to attend. I would hope the club will have a display at least at the West show in Monroeville. We will need some help with display ideas, transporting, and set-up. We certainly have enough memorabilia and what not to fill up several booths. I’m sure Norb will have more on this soon. Please think about it!

Next years Spring Bash will take place once again at St. Ferdinand’s on Saturday, April 11th.

We are still looking into getting Wi-Fi at the clubhouse for your phone service. Michael will have more on this soon.

Speaking of Michael, the club just completed hosting the 9th Annual ‘Thunder in the Forest’, and I would have to say it was the best one yet. Even Mother nature co-operated, except for a brief bike wash early Saturday morning. From the set-up Friday morning, to the registration, to the Friday cook-out, welcome party and Shiner’s playing Friday night, to the Saturday morning breakfast, the actual ride, the post ride dinner, and the prize hand-out, and even the clean-up, everything went off with-out a hitch. The crowd we now have returning every year are all good people and can’t wait to participate, with some even scheduling their vacations around it. This speaks volumes about this important fund raiser and every member who participated should be proud of this event. Even Michael, who is usually ready to pull his remaining hair out by Sunday, was already planning next years. Although everyone who was there helped, I would like to thank Jim Wright for food shopping & cooking breakfast Saturday, Dean Cercone & the whole Saturday crew who didn’t ride, for the excellent food prep and Saturday dinner, James & Christina for room assignment, Lana & Dave for tirelessly working the registration, Dean Wack for prize handout work, Sandy Mueller for organizing the silent auction & pre-cleaning the clubhouse, Ken Kelly for route lay-out & poker hand draw, Rick from James City Cafe’ for bringing over his big tent and picking it back up since we didn’t need it this year, Roy Stillman for the hay wagon stage, and the Shiner’s for playing for gas money. If I missed somebody, I’m sorry, but EVERYONE who was there helped out in some way, and thank you everyone for that! It was an awesome event! We will decide at Augusts’ meeting a benefactor for this years proceed’s.

That brings me to my close. This will be my last newsletter as your President, as term limits have thankfully set in and Norb will be taking office in September. This will be a relief for those of you who have grown tired of my long winded ramblings here. However, I will use this last opportunity to thank each and every Snowseeker member, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart! The last 3 years have flown by, mainly because of the most unselfish members of any organization I have ever belonged to. (And I’ve belonged to quite a few). Yes, we haggle and go back & forth on ideas, and sometimes threaten to quit if we don’t get our way, but, to a tee, we ALL step up when called upon and put our differences aside and get things done. Even the few times when even I, thought, well, that idea or fundraiser or whatever is dead, you, the member’s, always come through and even surprised me a few times! I think the club, as Dave & Lana passed it on to me, is in good shape both physically & financially, as we move forward and pass it on to Norb & crew. Some of our trials & tribulations & highlights, if you will…Fire at The Kaufman House, new social room roof, Benefit Cornhole Tourney, Snowseeker Web-site & FaceBook page, PSSA Show booth last fall, Sled & Quad Raffle, security cameras at clubhouse, clubhouse wiring re-done, new upstairs ladies bathroom, kitchen remodeling phase one complete, the well & water systems now keep up with demand, new garage floor & repairs, and new garage roof. We continue to be a presence in the ANF decision process, (thanks Bones & Tim), we continue to have our Annual event’s like the Canoe Trip, Golf Outing, the aforementioned Thunder, Highland Open Golf Outing, Deer & Bear Camp’s, Thanksgiving Dinner & wood cutting week-end, Breakfast with Santa, and our successful Spring Bash. Our elections are back on schedule with member’s wanting to run for office, we continue to be a 100% PSSA club and continue to meet 12 months of the year. Our new Associate Membership is almost full. Our coffer’s are full, the checkbooks balanced, we don’t owe anybody, and our Charity donations are second to none in this state. If I missed an event or function, I’m sorry, but I think you get what I mean. To say this is a full slate for our 45 or so member’s would be an understatement, and for that you should all be proud! I know I am, and, once again Thank You!

See you at Jim & Lori’s next Thursday, August 7th.

Mark & Sandy
