Greet­ings to all Sled Heads!

It’s go­ing to be won­der­ful to see all of you at the SND Con­ven­tion the first week of De­cem­ber. We should be see­ing lots of snow by then to cover our trails af­ter we have them all signed. Let’s get those groomers run­ning as much as pos­si­ble. I no­ticed on our SND web page there is a new item to check out which trails have been most re­cently groomed. Re­mem­ber to get all the train­ing re­quire­ments done at the con­ven­tion so we can have a good time rid­ing safely.

“My Hel­met is off” and a big SHOUT out to those who helped and took the time to pass the bill for our 10 year olds to ride on a state trail af­ter they pass the snow­mo­bile safety course with NDP&R. I can’t wait to get my grand­chil­dren’s great grand­fa­thers’ sled a new pair of skis. Gil­bert Mueller would be proud of that ole 1980 250 Yamaha Bravo go­ing at warp speed on the state trails. I know he will be smil­ing down on us as we hit a big snow drift.

Speak­ing of the old sleds, it’s time to get some of our landown­ers and old sled rid­ers to­gether for a potluck. Our clubs, Dakota Trail­blaz­ers are think­ing of putting on the potluck some­time in March. Hope we get a big crowd and look at all the old pic­tures and rem­i­nisce when we went real fast over an ap­proach and sur­vived. Maybe bring out some of those old snow­mo­bile suits!

Look­ing for­ward, I’m hop­ing the Peace Gar­den Trail is go­ing to be signed and groomed this year. I know there are only a few in­di­vid­u­als around this trail that is putting in lots of time and ef­fort. They are try­ing to gen­er­ate more ex­cite­ment to keep the trail in tip top shape and its time our younger rid­ers give them some help. There have been a few meet­ings to or­ga­nize and gen­er­ate mem­ber­ship in the snow­mo­bile clubs around Bot­tineau. I know there is a group of sleds that ride on Wed­nes­day night and it would be won­der­ful if they would help di­rect the younger folks to help main­tain the Peace Gar­den Trail. It is one of the primo ar­eas to ride in our state and we may need ev­ery­one to help pitch in to keep it go­ing. Prob­a­bly will be more dis­cus­sion at the State Con­ven­tion amongst the SND Board mem­bers. So please go to any board meet­ings, your thoughts are very im­por­tant to the SND pro­gram. Have a won­der­ful Thanks­giv­ing with your fam­ily, ride safe with a part­ner! Hope your trails will be full of snow,
