Hi ev­ery­one,

So far, what do you think of this win­ter? For me I am won­der­ing where the snow is. I was hop­ing Mother Na­ture would work with us this year. You know have at least two feet of snow and tem­per­a­tures around 20 de­grees. This would be ex­cel­lent! Well, I will keep dream­ing. This is my first ar­ti­cle for the Sno-Dak News since join­ing the Board so I thought I’d take the op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce my­self. I’m Joanne Seifert from the Ru­ral Cass Snow­mo­bile Club in Re­gion 5. I have been the state sec­re­tary be­fore back from 2003-2005 and en­joyed it so much that I de­cided to do it again. I’m mar­ried to Jeff Seifert who is also on the Board from Re­gion 5 so we can spend more time to­gether with snow­mo­bil­ing, even if we aren’t rid­ing much this year. I don’t ride much since I had shoul­der re­con­struc­tion surgery, but still en­joy driv­ing the chase ve­hi­cle and hear­ing all the sto­ries when ev­ery­one gets back from a fun day of hit­ting the trails. SND and NDPRD have been busy with the leg­is­la­tion com­mit­tee hear­ings. The SND staff has done an ex­cel­lent job work­ing with the leg­is­la­tion com­mit­tees. We have also had SND snow­mo­bile mem­bers go to the leg­is­la­tion com­mit­tees and show their sup­port also. I would like to say thank you.

Laura Forbes Sadly, our as­so­ci­a­tion has had to can­cel our pre­mier snow­mo­bil­ing event Snow Jam this year due to low snow con­di­tions. Our spon­sors were all un­der­stand­ing and will still be sup­port­ing us next year, and I’m con­fi­dent we’ll have tons more snow and will have a great event. It’s just too bad we had to can­cel in our 10th year. The suc­cess of this event is mainly due to our great vol­un­teers who go out and get spon­sor­ships and gather door prizes. They also work hard all day run­ning the var­i­ous com­po­nents of the event. And of course our great vol­un­teers who get the trial sys­tem ready with sign­ing and groom­ing. We truly couldn’t do all we do with­out the vol­un­teers, and I know I speak for the clubs when I say a big THANK YOU to all of you who give your time and tal­ents for your lo­cal as­so­ci­a­tions and trail sys­tems.

I en­cour­age you to look around the state and go ride the trail sys­tems that are open. Not all ar­eas are as hard hit as we are with low snow. Sup­port the whole state trail sys­tem…what goes around comes around and we want all the rid­ers to come visit us next year when we’ll be waist deep in the glo­ri­ous white stuff!
