board MES­SAGES

Sno-Dak News - - Club News -

Hello ev­ery­body! Al­though we are strug­gling with an­other low snow year, we have nonethe­less been very busy in Bis­marck. It is a leg­isla­tive ses­sion year and with that comes the prepa­ra­tion of tes­ti­mony, tes­ti­fy­ing at com­mit­tee hear­ings and fol­low­ing floor ses­sion votes. It is very in­ter­est­ing and ac­tu­ally fun to be part of the en­tire leg­isla­tive process, pre­sent­ing and ad­vanc­ing the needs of the state snow­mo­bile pro­gram. As I write this, every­thing we have brought for­ward has been well re­ceived with do pass rec­om­men­da­tions in com­mit­tee and some have al­ready passed the Sen­ate floor and will be go­ing to the House side next. We did our ini­tial in­spec­tion loops in De­cem­ber and again sign­ing was very good over­all. We have a few trails open and are watch­ing a snow storm right now that may add some much needed snow to our trails. It is so dis­heart­en­ing to see all the sign­ing work get done and then wait again for snow. We are do­ing snow dances daily and keep­ing our fin­gers crossed!

We at­tended the board meet­ing and State Ride at Wah­peton and Moore­ton last week­end. Lack of snow again dic­tated no rid­ing and the use of fun buses for the run. The vin­tage sled event had a good show­ing with at least 10 sleds on dis­play. Al­ways fun to see the vin­tage stuff and hear it run.

I hope this finds ev­ery­body safe and healthy and I hope to see you all on the trails!
