Club History:

Drifters was formed in 1967 In 1968 the Drifters sponsored the first Fox River Valley Championships Snowmobile Derby held on Lake Poygan. 1970 the race moved to County M. The land was leased from Howard Schierland for the race. In 1974 the race drew 250 racers and over 10,000 spectators. 1975 was the last race In 1969 the Drifters had a contest to pick "Drifters Snow Queen" Her name was Rosanne Luebke. She was the runner up for the State Snow Queen. 1970 The Drifters purchased a First Aid Sled and kept it at the Neenah Fire Station. 1974 The Drifters received the Safety Award from the Midwest Snowtrails Magazine for their role in safety and community involvement. All the clubs in WI, Mich, and Minn. were in competition for the award. From 1969 through 1976 the Drifters published a magazine "The Snowmobiler" it was free to the public. Starting in 1969, Drifters Club members would meet at Gillingham School with their sleds and give mentally retarded children rides on their sleds 1996 & 1997 Drifters Snowmobile Club again sponsored the Fox River Valley Championship races on Lake Winnebago. 1998 the Drifters attempted to have a 3rd race but ice and weather conditions were very poor and the race had to be cancelled. Every year since the beginning, the Drifters have held a trail fund raffle. This has grown into our backwards raffle that we have every October. The Drifters also help with Claytonfest. This is an annual festival, held in June, to raise money for the trails. The Drifters are in charge of the beer,soda and the food. In 2007 the Drifters purchased a groomer from the WCSA and our trails became state funded.
