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.
