Snow? Snow!

Snow days are just ahead and that’s good news for the Marengo Snowgoers. This snowmobile club, dedicated to family snowmobiling, was founded in 1974 and has been going strong ever since!

Now is the time to consider joining this group, to get ready for the coming season of fun in the snow. The club meets at Glo-Bowl fun center in Marengo the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7pm. The October 17 meeting is the kickoff for their annual membership drive with the club furnishing pizza for all that come out to join the club.

November 12 is the club’s annual fundraiser known as “The Brat Fry”, located in the upstairs banquet hall at Joe’s Place starting at 1:00pm until 6:00pm. Club President Gary Zickuhr says: “Come enjoy one of the best Brats you’ll find and try your luck on the meat raffles (aka feather party). We will have the football game on the big screen for your enjoyment too. Maybe you’ll be the lucky person winning the 1,000 Dollar Grand Prize.”

Zickuhr says trial marking throughout the Marengo and Union area will take place on Thanksgiving weekend, with the trails officially opening on December 1st. This is providing there is snow cover, so Zickuhr says, “Start doing that snow dance early! I have a good feeling about this coming year.”
