Snow on the way!!! Good news for the upcoming snowmobile season, but it's too early right now! Trails are still
officially CLOSED due to hunting and landowner requests to wait until after the hunter's season ends to open
their private land to snowmobile use. Water and mud isn't frozen yet anyhow and many farmer's field have
crops still standing or livestock out with their gates closed.RESPECT the private landowners please!As a
reminder when the season does open. We need about 12 inches of fresh snow to create a 3 inch base to open
the trails. Latest conditions and statuses will be posted here as well as through our text alerts. Please stay off
the trails until you see a message on our website or facebook page that they have opened.

Greeting from Mayville, NY, as we prepare for a monumental season for the Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club. 2018/2019 will mark the 50th year of the C.L.S.C. in Chautauqua County! We are all hoping that Mother Nature once again, blesses us with cold weather, fresh powder and long days of time spent riding the best trail system in W.N.Y.!

We are planning a community celebration on January 19, 2019 at our Club House, located at 7239 Hannum Road, Mayville, NY. During the event we are planning to host a BBQ Cookout that will be free and open to public, a display of the equipment that keeps the trails in shape, snowmobile rides, groomer rides, a display / tour of the new barn building project, history of the club along with meeting of the current members, community members, clubs’ officers and board members.

Other fund-raising activities will include a 55” Big Screen Television raffle, the BIGGEST 50/50 raffle in the clubs’ history and a Chinese Auction. 100% of the funds raised will stay LOCAL with the C.L.S.C. and will be used for the barn building project and the maintaining of the C.L.S.C. trail system. We are hoping that you will help us in the celebration by donating a basket / item for the Chinese Auction. As a sponsor we will include your name and business in our marketing and advertising, have your basket on display at the club house, include your information and item on our web site and Facebook postings AND our unending thanks!

Please feel free to contact Marcus Maloney, Activities Director at clscevents@chautauquasnow.com, or ANY club officer or Board of Directors for more information.

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. If you come in from out of town, you will have to pay full price for each sled without a voucher unless you can find internet access. 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 ...
