Sno-Dak News - - Club News - Bob Gre­goire, Sec­re­tary

Our snow­mo­bile club has re­ally come alive now that the win­ter sea­son seems close and sum­mer is re­ced­ing into the past. We have been busy plan­ning the var­i­ous Club events for the near fu­ture. Club mem­bers have been sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets, get­ting their sleds out of stor­age and set­tling up with their deal­ers for the 2015 sleds that were con­sum­mated last spring. Later in Oc­to­ber we’ll be once again dis­play­ing our sleds at the Kirk­wood Shop­ping Mall for two full days. This event cer­tainly gen­er­ates a lot of in­ter­est with the pub­lic when they see the sleds and visit with our mem­bers who are avail­able to an­swer ques­tions and en­cour­age mem­ber­ship plus sell raf­fle tick­ets. Our trail sign­ing was con­ducted Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 4th along Hwy. 83 north of Bis­marck. On Mon­day we re­ceived a call from the Dis­trict Engi­neer’s of­fice that we need to re­move the signs that were within 30 feet of the road­way be­cause they were go­ing to mow one more time. This is the sec­ond year in a row we have been hit with this, which sim­ply means that a phone call yo your Dis­trict Engi­neer’s of­fice would solve the is­sue. I called the Bis­marck of­fice and that was the rec­om­mended pro­ce­dure to im­ple­ment in or­der to avoid this prob­lem. There are Dis­trict Of­fices in the ma­jor ci­ties around the state where clubs should touch base prior to sign­ing state high­ways. Here’s the con­tact #’s for them:

Grand Forks: 701-787-6500; Fargo: 701-239-8900; Val­ley City: 701-845-8800; Dick­in­son: 701-227-6500; Willis­ton: 701-774-2700; Minot: 701-857-6925; Devils Lake: 701-665-5100; Bis­marck: 701-238-6951

We’ll have seen some of you at the SND Con­ven­tion in Minot be­fore you read this, but wish all the clubs a suc­cess­ful year of snow­mo­bil­ing and ac­tiv­i­ties.
