ROUGH RIDERS SNOWMOBILE’S ASSOCIATIONS
Our club members have been busy with all the preparations needed to organize our second Dealer Demo Day Dec 13, 2014 and selling raffle tickets. This is our biggest event of the year and it takes a lot of coordination to pull it off successfully. Fortunately, we have many capable members who are really good at organizing details and listing them on paper to keep things moving forward and getting positions assigned to our members. (sounds like a military operation huh?) We meet each Tuesday night to keep everyone up to speed. Our local dealers are also getting their snowmobiles, clothing and ATV’s ready to display and or demonstrate. We will be serving free food and selling raffle tickets and memberships on that day. The Raffle drawing will be done that afternoon.
Our signed trail system was recently inspected and of course, a few signs had either been knocked down or never put up so we need to replace those signs to get our 100% good to go rating. (living under the flag pole is such a blessing) Fortunately, those areas are close to town. Our entire trail system needs snow in order to get our season going. Hopefully that will be coming soon. We’re all ready to put some miles on our sleds. The exceptionally warm weather and lack of snow has put a damper on riding and trail grooming activities in the Bismarck area.
I understand that the State Convention will be in Bismarck next year and the Bismarck – Mandan Rough Riders welcome our fellow No. Dak. snowmobile riders to the Capitol City for the annual event. We wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. Please ride safe.
