Jan­uary 2015 marked thir­teen years that I have been with Snow­mo­bile North Dakota. And that doesn’t in­clude my child­hood grow­ing up with the or­ga­ni­za­tion and vol­un­teer­ing for the state snow­mo­bile trail sys­tem. It’s been an ex­cel­lent thir­teen years filled with many chal­lenges and achieve­ments. I’m ex­tremely proud of the hard work this or­ga­ni­za­tion and the net­work of its mem­bers and vol­un­teers. Each year, all of you never cease to amaze me on the lengths you will go for snow­mo­bil­ing. Keep up the ex­cel­lent work; it’s your en­thu­si­asm that drives this or­ga­ni­za­tion. With­out a driver, we would go nowhere!

As I’m writ­ing this ar­ti­cle, I wish we had news to share on open trail sys­tems and groomed trails. It’s been an odd sea­son of cold weather to warm weather and back to cold weather where it re­peats it­self all over again. I’m hop­ing as this sea­son comes to a close that all of the state trails have a chance to open and main­tain some trail. It builds good moral and makes for a great sea­son. Leg­is­la­tion is a con­stant sub­ject in our of­fice right now. Looks like we will be track­ing sev­eral bills through­out the sea­son that af­fect the state snow­mo­bile pro­gram. For the lat­est in­for­ma­tion on the 2015 Leg­isla­tive Cam­paign please watch your email and SND’s web­site. Since the leg­isla­tive world can move fast at times with com­mit­tee hear­ings etc., this is the best way for us to com­mu­ni­cate with all of you. We will no­tify you of the lat­est hear­ing sched­ules and floor votes as soon as we are aware of them. The next best thing is to still keep con­tact­ing your lo­cal leg­is­la­tors and in­form them you are in sup­port of Snow­mo­bile North Dakota’s leg­isla­tive cam­paign. This will count when it comes to the floor vote.

As promised a few is­sues ago, here are the out­stand­ing in­di­vid­u­als who have served as Sec­re­tary and Trea­surer over the years. All of th­ese in­di­vid­u­als along with the en­tire Board of Di­rec­tors and the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s mem­bers and vol­un­teers de­serve a round of ap­plause! And as Martin Luther King Jr. said, “not ev­ery­body can be fa­mous but ever­body can be great, be­cause great­ness is de­ter­mined by ser­vice!”
