WHO WE ARE


The Suburban Sno-Hawks snowmobile club started in October of 1970. It was organized to promote safe snowmobiling on marked trails. Like all Wisconsin snowmobile clubs, our club members contact landowners for permission to use their land for trails. We mark them, maintain them, and clean them up at the end of the season.

We belong to the AWSC (Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs), the WCSA (Waukesha County Snowmobile Association), the Waukesha County Search & Rescue, and the Milwaukee County Search & Rescue.

Membership fees are $30 per family per year. Each family is required to work ten hours and attend six meetings per year. Our meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the VFW, 17980 W. Beloit Rd., in New Berlin. There are no meetings June through August. Refreshments are served at the meetings. All members receive a monthly newsletter.

We have our own DNR Safety Instructors and hold several classes each year. The classes are free to club members upon completion. Non-members pay a small fee.

Our “38th Annual Snowmobile Races” will be held on Sunday, January 27th, 2008. They are held at the VFW on a club built, ¼ mile banked oval snowmobile track that is used once a year just for our races. We also have a drag strip adjacent for snowmobile and drag races.

We recently had our annual picnic in September and our family Christmas party in December.

We have several weekend snowmobile outings every year. Three are planned this season; January 18 – 20th to Suring, WI. February 8 - 10th at the “Indian Springs Lodge and Casino” Carter, WI. March 7th – 9th at the Four Seasons in Pembine, WI. We also have local rides that members can go on a calling list and get contacted if snow conditions warrant a day or evening ride.

Other outings for the season (to be announce)

We welcome you to join our club!
