ROUGH RIDERS SNOWMOBILE’S ASSOCIATIONS
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.
