Friends & Snow

Sno-Dak News - - Club News - Jen­nifer Korgel

It is com­fort­ing to think that the Magic City Drift busters Club has been around since, I think, be­fore I was born. One rea­son be­ing that fact makes me still feel young, but also be­cause it proves the club’s abil­ity to hang tight dur­ing the dry years.

Last week­end sev­eral club mem­bers took a road trip to snow­mo­bile for the day at Lake Metigoshe. A few went Satur­day, with an­other group on Sun­day. The scenery and trail sys­tem are very nice, and can even make you feel a lit­tle like a dare devil as you cruise across many bod­ies of (hope­fully) frozen wa­ter. Most years our club plans a day trip, or two, up to the lake to ride, but this year it was some­thing more. This year it was an op­por­tu­nity to just get out and ride.

The group trips to the black hills this year also had that same un­der ly­ing drive be­hind them as well. It was not only about get­ting to ride some­place dif­fer­ent, it was the op­por­tu­nity to ride at all.

So even though the amount of times we have been able to get out and ride this year has been lim­ited, hope­fully they have been en­joy­able and mem­o­rable for all. I know for my­self, I will not soon for­get the black hills sto­ries of those who may have fallen off their sleds; we, I mean they, don’t need to be men­tioned here. But, I would like to men­tion one of our se­nior mem­bers, who still made it out on the trail with us to ride. It is our club pres­i­dent, Jerry Law­son, who rode both days last week­end. He also made the first trip to South Dakota as well.

As I lis­ten to the wind whip around out­side tonight, I spec­u­late if late Fe­bru­ary and March will bring that fluffy white stuff our way. Hope­fully this win­ter will go the way I over­heard an el­derly gen­tle­man ex­plain it to a new ar­rival. Well first we have a Jan­uary thaw, and then in Fe­bru­ary up un­til May we can get snow. I sure hope he is mostly right, un­til early April any­way.
