Pleasant Riders Snowmobile Club
Pleasant Riders Snowmobile Club is much more than just a snowmobile club. The love of snowmobiling brings people together and when that occurs great things happen!
Pleasant Riders Snowmobile Club serves the Southern Adirondacks area of Speculator, Lake Pleasant and Piseco, but its members are not limited exclusively to this area. Membership numbers are well over 500, from all over the state and beyond.
The club is homored to receive recognition from NYSSA as the Club of the Year 2014. All clubs strive to achieve this award and this particular club has done it again - an honor first bestowed in 2008.
The club has grown leaps and bounds since 2008 and is now officially a 501c3 charitable organization. You can donate, donate, donate and write it all off come tax time!
Pleasant Riders Snowmobile Club applied and received a grant to purchase a new drag, which required many, many volunteer hours. The members worked closely with DEC to ensure the proper paperwork and procedures were taken to widen and repair our trails.
Beginning with the Fourth of July festivities, members get dressed up and decorate a float for the parade.They organize a clean up crew for the Adopt a Highway program and cook burgers and hot dogs and frying fries for the crowds at AppleFest.
Each year Pleasant Riders Snowmobile Club raffle a new snowmobile beginning in September into February and celebrate the end of another great season with an awesome fireworks display, a Christmas tree burning and then the winner is announced!
A great fundraising event is the Riding for The Cure Snowmobile ride. All proceeds from this event goes to the Local Chapter of the American Cancer Society. Riders set out on guided tours around the area stopping for lunch and returning to Oak Mountain Ski Area for a buffet dinner, raffle, silent auction and a 50/50 draw. The 2014 event raised over $12,000!
At Christmas Santa, Mrs. Claus and their Elves host the local children for a evening of caroling through town. After joy is spread throughout, the Elves prepare for a live auction with goods donated to the Club.
The most rewarding event of the year is the Toys for Local Tots Toy Drive. Toys are collected for all ages of boys and girls, the doors of the local VFW chapter and parents are invited in who may need a little extra help.
Pleasant Riders Snowmobile Club truly enjoys serving its community and volunteering time to ensure the best trail system. If you're already a member, you may have seen the improvements the club has made and is making.
