Safety Coordinator for Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club, Scott Shapert has spoken with Jim McFarland of OPRHP (Parks) about coming to Chautauqua County and putting on a Groomer Operator Training Class. No date or location has been picked at this point. We need about 30 people interested and willing to attend this class before we ask Jim McFarland to come. He will not come for just a couple people. Anybody who attends can get a Groomer Operator Training Certificate. We always seem to be adding new people as groomer operators and a refresher would not hurt for those who have already gotten a certificate. We would like all groomer operators to attend if possible. We would like the class to be scheduled for late October or November if possible. If you are interested in attending this class please contact Scott @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Signing Class @ 6:30 PM Oct. 15th at the clubhouse on Hannum Rd. Ray Head will be conducting this refresher course. We would like all groomer operators and anyone who helps sign to attend. The class will only be about 45 minutes long. The regular meeting will commence at 7:30 PM. Thanks !

We are currently looking for web camera sponsors for the web cameras through our trail system. The cost of these cameras and maintenance has become a burden and we need some sponsors. For $100, each sponsor will be a listed advertiser on the webcam selection page and may also have rotating banner ads throughout the website. Contact Us today if you are interested.
Trails Open Dec. 17th weather and conditions permitting. We need to have at least 3" compacted base so as not to disturb the ground surface.TRAILS ARE CLOSED UNTIL A MESSAGE IS POSTED ON OUR SNOWPHONE OR ON THIS WEBSITE. PLEASE RESPECT LANDOWNERS AND STAY OFF THE TRAILS UNTIL THEY ARE OFFICIALLY OPEN. WE LOSE MILES OF TRAILS EACH SEASON BECAUSE OF A FEW BAD APPLES. PLEASE DONT BE THAT PERSON WHO RUINS THE TRAIL SYSTEM. WE ALL WANT TO RIDE SO PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL AND WAIT WITH THE REST OF US.
Dear fellow club members,
I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by. Winter will be here before you know it. Long range forecasts indicate another cold winter. I'm hoping for more snow and the Lake Erie snow-making machine to stay open longer than last year. We are making some trail changes for this season that we hope will help in some areas. Several fields that we have typically crossed through the middle will be moved to the edges to protect spring grass growth. There will probably be some other small trail re-routes that should benefit Landowners as well as the trail system. As always, please follow the marked trails and do not wander outside the stakes onto private land.Click Here To Read The Entire Newsletter
There will be NO CLUB RENEWAL at the DMV anymore. The DMV is no longer able to handle club funds. We had a representative at the DMV last year to help with the transition. To avoid a delay, fill out this application and send it with a check ASAP. We will process and return it. Then you can reregister at the DMV at your convenience and have all the paperwork you need.

On the application, update your email address and verify whether you are able to print your own voucher upon renewal. NYSSA will send a welcome email to you that has your voucher attached. One will only be sent by mail if it is requested. To automatically renew go to www.nysnowmobiler.com and register. You will be able to download and print your voucher immediately upon completing that process. There is a number on top of the bar code, upper right of last years voucher that is your membershi ...
