Poker Run 2017


Our 2017 Poker run this past Saturday was a huge success.  We had 140 entries, snow on the ground goes a long ways.  Erin Abriel won 1st price in poker run, Bill Kowalski 2nd, and Nick Casan???? (sorry), 3rd.    The 50-50 was won by Diane DeCesare, Bill Fitzpatrick 2nd, and Tom Kennedy, 3rd.  Diane donated a portion of her winnings back to the snowmobile club.  Thanks to the many people who worked to make it a success.  Special thanks to club president Jim Robbins who did the legwork to solicit the many donations from local businesses, and to the groomer crew of John Welch, Jim Furnari, Larry Gleason, and Gary Egan who groomed many hours into the early morning hours of Saturday to make the trails the best they have been all year.  We will post a list of those who donated prizes soon.
Also thanks to the participants of the Mark Heinzelman poker run that due to a calendar oddity this year was also held Saturday.  They had over 100 participants and provided most of the food for the event.  They also donated $100 to the snowmobile club, which was donated back to their local charity.

Operating Snowmobiles in NYS

We often field the question "Who can operate a snowmobile legally in NYS?"
New York State Office of Parks and Recreation website  states that "Youth ages 14 through 17 years old may operate a snowmobile, on lands upon which snowmobiling is allowed, without adult or other supervision if they have completed a snowmobile safety training course recognized by the State of New York. If youth ages 14 through 17 years have not completed the training course, they may operate a snowmobile if accompanied by (within 500 feet of) a person who is at least 18 years of age.
Youth ages 10 through 13 may operate a snowmobile, on lands upon which snowmobiling is allowed, if they have completed a snowmobile safety training course recognized by the State of New York and are accompanied by (within 500 feet of) a person who is at least 18 years of age.
Children less than 10 years old or less than age 14 without a safety certificate may operate a snowmobile only on lands owned or leased by their parent or guardian."

Visit the NYSSA website for a detailed reference to the New York State Laws pertaining to or effecting snowmobiles, including  OPRHP Law 25.19, Operation by youthful operators.
