Board Mes­sages

Sno-Dak News - - Board Message - Pres­i­dent Laura Forbes

Hi ev­ery­one,

The leaves are start­ing to turn col­ors and we know snow will start fall­ing soon. Our clubs are start­ing to get to­gether to plan out the snow­mo­bil­ing sea­son and start­ing to put the signs up. I hope we get snow this year. We are way over­due. First I would like to say thank you to Keri for every­thing you have done for SND. When you first started with SND, the of­fice was in dis­ar­ray. You took your knowl­edge, en­thu­si­asm and will­ing­ness to take SND to where it is to­day. Thank you for all of the hard work you did. I will miss work­ing with you, but I will still see you on the trails.

Due to Keri leav­ing the SND Of­fice, the board per­formed in­ter­views for the Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor po­si­tion and we re­struc­tured the SND Of­fice. The board de­cided to have two full time po­si­tions and no part time po­si­tions. Todd Thron­son is our Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor and Tari Norby is our Of­fice Man­ager. Todd will still be tak­ing care of the trail in­spec­tions. Tari will be tak­ing care of the of­fice du­ties. I be­lieve by re­struc­tur­ing the of­fice, it will ben­e­fit the snow­mo­bil­ing com­mu­nity as a whole. FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

While you are rid­ing this win­ter please re­mem­ber the slo­gan “PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT”. In Oc­to­ber, my hus­band and I went site see­ing and four wheel­ing in an­other state. When we were in the site see­ing ar­eas, it amazed me how in­con­sid­er­ate some peo­ple are, by leav­ing their garbage wher­ever they please and not just a lit­tle garbage. There was a lot. Then we went four wheel­ing on the trail sys­tem and it was so cool how the peo­ple re­spected the land. We didn’t see any garbage on the trail sys­tem. I know there are groups that don’t like us and be­lieve we are de­stroy­ing the land. I think we have proved them wrong. Keep up the good work.

RE­MINDER: when sign­ing your trails, please re­mem­ber to sign them as you have never rid­den on the trail be­fore. Also make sure the trail maps are dis­trib­uted at the lo­cal gas sta­tions and lo­cal shops, so peo­ple have ac­cess to our trail sys­tem.

Keep up the great work.
