  1. No Elmer died a couple years ago. However Martti Luoma the second guy in the photo is still alive and with the club. He still drives a groomer.

  5. I guess most of you have not heard but Soupkid is in the hospital in extremely serious condition in an induced coma to deal with medical conditions I will not get into. On the MOTS issue in D12 as Kevin said we are 90% there in this area and most of us are leaning favourably if a few items can be tweaked. Personally I have only a couple concerns - One may be unique to the north and that is the new district boundaries - These cover vast areas and in D12 for example going from one end to the other of the district would take 5-6 hours by car on a good day in the summer.
