Good Day SND Family and Friends Hey what’s with no snow! Hope to catch some action at Lake Metigoshe the 23rd of January with our Club, Dakota Trailblazers. Come join us if you like, we will be at the Slemmen Lodge at the state park. We sure would like to ride the International Ride but we need lots of Snow Prayers from all of us. Going to be a great time on the 30th of January. Are you getting ready?
The State Ride in Mooreton was a hoot the last time we went and I hope to see everyone on the 7th of February this year. Not much snow last time but they know how to put on a fun run with buses. They had about 4 inches and some sleds were going but no one wants to wear out their track or skins or break anything. Great idea to keep everyone safe and ensure we had a ride back to the hotel in Wahpeton. I am looking forward to putting on 300 miles in one day on the SVTA trials and thanks again for sponsoring the State Ride. It would great to see more individuals at the board meetings, especially when the SND Board are out on the trails. Your ideas and comments are very important to the
SND board and besides we like your company! By now everyone’s trails should be up to snuff and I hope everyone has learned a few things this year. My Helmet is off to Todd Thronson for doing another thorough inspection and we have a great safe trail to ride on. His job is very important and sometimes we get asked “why we have a SND trail inspector?” To keep us all safe!
To keep you informed about a few legislative items: Our team of Senators and Representatives and Senator Oley Larsen have agreed to help us draft the new bill. We will be monitoring four bills including: Registration Increase, Registration Transfer from DOT to NDPRD, Youth Bill, NDPRD’s Appropriations bill (carry the budget for the snowmobile program). We ask you to be prepared to show your support at the Capitol; will keep you posted of the date and time.
Make sure you check the SND web page before you go out to ride. This always saved me some time, where to go, what to expect on the trail and the most important, the trail condition. Don’t go sledding in a new area without checking the web page.
Have a wonderful ride wherever you go and take a friend with you, introduce the younger generation to a great time! Happy snowy trails to you all!
