HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 to everyone!!

What a great way to end 2011, with a successful fundraiser at the Christmas in Strafford event.  A  great big THANK YOU to all the donation supporters throughout the community and the area, that provided all the great items for the raffle.  We had over 50 items to raffle.  Another thank you to all the folks that stopped by our booth and purchased raffle tickets.  Your support is much appreciated.  And CONGRATULATIONS to all the raffle winners.  See the list below.

The trail work is at its end and we are now waiting for Mother Nature to do her part.  We are looking forward to getting out and riding the trails.

Don’t forget the NHSA is also doing another snowmobile raffle this year for a 2012 Artic Cat F1100 Sno Pro 50th Anniversary Snowmobile as well as other prizes.  Contact Club President Shawn Barry for more info regarding these items and to purchase your raffle tickets.  E-mail:                   shawn@straffordswampstompers.org

There are still club T-shirts, Hoodies and Caps available.  We are also taking orders for any special size items that we don’t have in stock.  Do hurry, we need a minimum order.  We would like to get it in as soon as possible to get the items back to you in time to show them off on the trails.

Coming up in February is our annual Bon Fire.  The date is not confirmed but we will keep you posted for the complete list of information.

Our January meeting will be on Thursday, January 12th at Nippo Lake Golf Club at 7:00PM.   The Social will be on Thursday, January 26th at a time and place to be determined.  If we have enough snow we will try to do a club ride.  Check the website often for up to the minute information.
