Hello fel­low snow­mo­bil­ers, Here we go again… mid-De­cem­ber, trails are signed, snow­mo­biles are ready, snow­mo­bil­ers are ready and yet to our dis­may, no snow. Seems to be the pat­tern we are stuck in. Hope­fully that means good snow to come af­ter the first of the year. Re­gard­less of how many miles we get to ride this year, things are al­ways busy at SND. The board and com­mit­tees con­tinue to meet and do the busi­ness of snow­mo­bile trail man­age­ment. One of the things on our agenda this year is the leg­isla­tive ses­sion. We are in­volved with a cou­ple of bills go­ing be­fore the leg­is­la­ture. One is re­gard­ing the li­cens­ing and reg­is­tra­tion of snow­mo­biles and one is re­gard­ing the min­i­mum age for rid­ing on pub­lic prop­erty. Per­son­ally, I have never paid that much at­ten­tion to what goes on at the capi­tol. I know it is my duty as an Amer­i­can, how­ever other things seem to take prece­dence. Now is my chance and yours as well. We will need the sup­port of the snow­mo­bil­ing com­mu­nity. As some­one said, let’s fill the cap­i­tal with snow­mo­bile coats. Show them how many of us there are. Write to the sen­a­tors and rep­re­sen­ta­tives on your area (I even know who mine are now) and let them know this is im­por­tant to you and how you want them to vote. Tell them how you love rid­ing so much you even vol­un­teer hours of your time to sign trails and other good works in your com­mu­ni­ties. Up­dates will be pro­vided in up­com­ing is­sues and check www.snow­mo­bilend.org.

Other than con­ven­tion, we have held one board meet­ing so far this sea­son. Wel­come to all of the new board mem­bers. Your time is ap­pre­ci­ated. We had some good dis­cus­sion and some new ideas to keep SND mov­ing for­ward.

Thank you to all who got the trails ready! Keep the faith!
