Snowmobile safety course offered

Posted November 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm

The Aberdeen Driftbusters Snowmobile Club will hold a snowmobile safety course for all ages on Sunday, Nov. 18.  The course is free and open to any interested party; club membership is not required.  The class will be held at the Pizza Ranch in Aberdeen from 2 to 6 p.m. 

Safety course leader Corey Gelling stated, “Our club teaches a snowmobile safety course each year to promote a safe riding season for young and old snowmobilers.”  While not required in South Dakota, youth are required to have a safety course certification in order to ride in other states. Those who are 12 and older and successfully complete the test at the end of the course are eligible to be certified. To register for the free course or for additional information, contact Gelling at 226-4939.
