SKI-BEES FEBRUARY CLUB NEWS
The Colebrook Vintage Race on Saturday, February 08, 2014, was relocated to the track in Errol.  We didnít have enough snow to build a track a few weeks prior to the scheduled race, and by the time we got sufficient snow, there was no longer enough time to build a track before the event.  The Vintage Race Committee was previously toying with the idea of purchasing snow guns for the purpose of building race tracks.  However, because the cost of making snow would exceed the $400 per track limit budgeted by the committee, we will not be purchasing any snow guns. 
The Colebrook Ski-Bees concession stand was also in Errol for the Vintage Race, and did a mean stroke of business, with a varied menu to include donuts, hamburgers, hot dogs, clam chowder and beverages.
The club is thankful to Vince Roscillo for so generously loaning his generator to the club on multiple occasions.   The Board is now looking into the purchase of a generator of our own.
 Trailmaster Report  at the Feb. 5 club meeting:  We still need to brush trails.  If anyone wants to borrow a pole saw to go out and do some brushing, please contact Arthur Beauchemin.  Arthur also suggested we get a sickle bar for one of the groomers.  We still have some signage issues, which we are working on.  A bridge on Sims Stream is broken up from the ice again; We plan to elevate the bridge this summer.

Trail Maps:  New maps for this year are in and are being sold at various locations in the Colebrook area.  We are grateful to our advertisers!

Garage Committee:  Phil is working on a scaled model of the proposed building and the committee needs to meet. 

Scholarship Committee:  has not met yet, but will soon.  At each monthly meeting, the club does a 50/50 raffle, which finances the clubís Scholarship Fund.
Any members interested on serving on this committee, please contact Bill Sparklin or Amy Falconer.

North Country Mushers held a 20 mile race on Sunday, Feb. 9 on Corridor 18 to 5 to 7 to 7a to 18, back to CCC.  On Saturday night, the Ski-Bees hosted a Spaghetti Feed at Colebrook Country Club for the mushers and the general public.  The club had several volunteers for the dinner and for road crossings during the race.  It turned out to be an outstanding weekend for the club, and the mushers are talking about returning next winter!

Austinís Ride for Cystic Fibrosis is on Saturday, February 22 at the Colebrook Country Club on Route 26.  Flyers & brochures are now available.  Colebrook Ski-Bees sponsor the food for this event.  Buddy and Clay will work the grille, Michelle is available to take orders and collect money, and we need 1 or 2 volunteers to sell 50/50 tickets during the day.  The event includes a snowmobile ride (out of state registrations are allowed on the ride), lunch, silent auction all day with incredible items, live auction, raffles and a 50/50 raffle.  The fun begins at 9:00am and is over by 4:00pm.  The public is invited to this family-friendly event!  Proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help find a cure!

OHRV Coalition:  Jim Kenny is serving as the Colebrook Ski-Bees representative.  He attended the annual meeting and has the source document if anyone wants to read it.  Three trail kiosks coincide with our snowmobile trails.  We will need help putting them up as they are very large.  Please contact Jim if you are available to lend a hand.

501c3 Application:  Vice President, Amy has been working on the bylaws in order for the club to apply for 501c3 Non-profit Tax Exempt Status.   As the application is now in the final stages, it was voted at the Feb. meeting to post an announcement on the web site for 15 days, so any club member who would like to review the bylaws may do so at the Colebrook Country Club or by email.  It was also voted to allow the Board of Directors to make the final decision after the 15-day review period, which ends Feb. 21.  Email Rider@ColebrookSki-Bees.com if you wish to review the document. 

Groomer Rodeo:  was held Friday and Saturday, February 14 and 15 at the Groveton Trailblazers clubhouse. 

2014 Easter Seals Ride-in:  was held on Feb. 7, 8 & 9 at Town & Country Motor Inn in Gorham. 

Nomination of officers will take place at the Wednesday, March 5 monthly membership meeting.
Vice President Amy Falconer is willing to run for President, Chris Chase will accept nomination for the Trailmaster position and Audie Porter is willing to accept nomination for Treasurer again.  The Vice President, one Board position, and the Secretaryís positions currently have no nominations.  Anyone interested in taking any office, please contact Amy Falconer, so we can make sure your nominations are received for the March 5 meeting!  Elections will take place on April 2. 
Service is from July 1 through June 30.
