Hi ev­ery­one,

How is the fall sea­son treat­ing you? The weather has been co­op­er­at­ing so we can fin­ish the last minute out­side projects for the year. Thank


Snow­mo­bile clubs are just start­ing to meet and pre­pare for their win­ter ac­tiv­i­ties. I hope we get enough snow for the ac­tiv­i­ties.

The board has been strug­gling with get­ting clubs or as­so­ci­a­tions to host the SND Con­ven­tion. I am look­ing for sug­ges­tions for the con­ven­tion. What would you like to see at the con­ven­tion? How many days would you like the con­ven­tion to be? What kind of train­ing or classes would you like to see at the con­ven­tion? I like to try new ideas, so please send in your sug­ges­tions. I have lis­tened to many peo­ple talk about their club and state it is the same peo­ple do­ing all of the work and they are get­ting burnt out. What can we do to get more peo­ple in­volved with­out pay­ing them? I know this is the mil­lion dol­lar ques­tion.

How do we get younger peo­ple to join clubs? When I ask peo­ple why they don’t be­long to a club they tell me they don’t have time or they don’t want to work. I have been read­ing snow­mo­bile mag­a­zines from other states. One state has it set up that the fees are the same for ev­ery club, so when the peo­ple reg­is­ter their snow­mo­biles they have them choose which club they want their funds to go to, and if they don’t pick a club, then the funds go to the clos­est snow­mo­bile club to their ad­dress. An­other state has it set up that, if a per­son be­longs to a club their reg­is­tra­tion for their snow­mo­biles is cheaper than a per­son who doesn’t be­long to a club. Be­fore some peo­ple will join a club, they want to know what’s in it for them.

Food for thought – How many peo­ple in the state of North Dakota own snow­mo­biles and don’t be­long to a club? How do we get them in­volved?
