Happy New Year everyone! It’s going to be a great year of hard work and accomplishment. I’m hoping maintaining snowmobile trail gets to be included in that. It seems a little dry out there these days. In the middle of November, Todd and I headed across the state. We were amazed when we got home to see Bismarck had the most snow. A couple weeks later Todd, Tari and I jumped back in the vehicle to head to Carrington for a Board of Directors meeting on December 6th and we found the tables had turned. Although this makes us sad for Bismarck because we want more snow, we were excited to see the ground white across the central part of the state. Congrats to the new Board of Directors, Mark Forbes, Nick Parslow, Reily Bata, Jeff Seifert and the new Secretary Joanne Seifert. I’m encouraged to see faces younger than me sitting on the Board, ready and willing to learn and guide this organization to more continued success. But with that said, I’m sad to see Byron Norsby, Mark Shipley, and Brian Sauer go. All of these individuals have dedicated many hours to snowmobiling and I’m sure they will still put in many more. Cheers to all of you as well as the other individuals that make up the SND team. It’s a legislative season and the 2015 Legislative Campaign is aggressive. Information on the campaign can be found in the additional pages of this magazine, so I will end this section with this. There is a saying I have quoted before; “Eighty Percent of Success is Showing Up!” If we want to achieve success with the snowmobilers 2015 Legislative Campaign, SHOW UP! It’s that simple, contact your local Representatives and Senators, inform them what we are doing and why, attend the committee hearings at the state capitol and wear your snowmobile jacket so you stand out, and hit repeat until we achieve success. Lastly, as promised in the last issue, here is more information to commemorate SND’s 40th Anniversary. Everybody give “One Clap” for those that served as SND’s Vice President over the years!
