Sno-Dak News - - Board Messages -

It was a week­end of cel­e­bra­tion! We may have only cel­e­brated 36 years of host­ing an an­nual snow­mo­bile con­ven­tion, but the week­end marked some­thing big­ger. It was a week­end of look­ing back and hon­or­ing the 40 years Snow­mo­bile North Dakota has been in ex­is­tence. What an ac­com­plish­ment and it just goes to show you, when a snow­mo­biler puts their mind to some­thing, noth­ing less than suc­cess will be ac­cepted.

Fri­day kicked off with the tra­di­tional Board of Di­rec­tors meet­ing and a ven­dor show. The Board of Di­rec­tors met for a cou­ple hours and dis­cussed the 2015 Leg­isla­tive Cam­paign, trail meet­ings, up­com­ing an­nual con­ven­tions and the 2015 events. Don’t for­get to reach out to Tari at the of­fice to share up­com­ing events and sched­ule a snow­mo­bile safety class.

Spe­cial thanks to all of the ven­dors that at­tended the event. There were plenty of prod­ucts to check out and a few shop­ping bags left the show room floor. The evening closed with a so­cial bring­ing ev­ery­one to­gether to have fun, share sto­ries and was filled with plenty of laugh­ter.

Satur­day morn­ing kicked off with the an­nual meet­ing. Thanks for pro­vid­ing in­put on the po­ten­tial trail­head signs the Board of Di­rec­tors are look­ing into for the state trail sys­tem. We also ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery­one that pre­sented on be­half of the North Dakota Parks and Recre­ation Depart­ment, Pis­ten Bully and Po­laris. It’s al­ways nice to hear other com­pa­nies chat snow!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the three new cer­ti­fied snow­mo­bil­ers. Wish­ing you plenty of snow and lots of fun as you ride on the state trail sys­tem! The cer­ti­fi­ca­tion classes were filled with new and ex­pe­ri­enced groomer op­er­a­tors and trail sign­ers. Thanks for con­tin­u­ing your ed­u­ca­tion and please know all of your time and ded­i­ca­tion is greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

The event closed with the an­nual ban­quet award­ing well de­served in­di­vid­u­als for their ef­forts in sup­port­ing the state trail sys­tem. Out­back Au­to­body even had a 40th An­niver­sary cake de­liv­ered to cel­e­brate Snow­mo­bile North Dakota’s big cel­e­bra­tion. Thanks to ev­ery­one that sup­ported the silent auc­tion ta­ble. Be­cause of you, we were able to do­nate $2,600 to the Grant & Aid and Schol­ar­ship pro­gram.

Next year’s con­ven­tion will be held in Bis­marck, De­cem­ber 5th. Hope to see you there and have an ex­cel­lent win­ter sea­son!
