Floor opened to public comments:

Work on the trail map will be conducted by Chuck V. and should be available next month.  Snow club signs helping direct snowmobilers need to be found

and counted.  Future signs posting will include Hahn's Peak Village, Badger Meadows and the Columbine gravel pit in hopes of keeping riders from

going into private property.  Mark B. will get a sign count.

should be given to Amber.  To donate money or sign up for membership please go to the website:  www.Steamboatlakesnowclub.com

Trail grooming will be the responsibility of Steamboat Lake State Parks and headed up by Mark B.  We will be limited to grooming where the Forest Service
has permitted the club to groom with no deviations.
