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!
