Happy New Year ev­ery­one! It’s go­ing to be a great year of hard work and ac­com­plish­ment. I’m hop­ing main­tain­ing snow­mo­bile trail gets to be in­cluded in that. It seems a lit­tle dry out there th­ese days. In the mid­dle of Novem­ber, Todd and I headed across the state. We were amazed when we got home to see Bis­marck had the most snow. A cou­ple weeks later Todd, Tari and I jumped back in the ve­hi­cle to head to Car­ring­ton for a Board of Di­rec­tors meet­ing on De­cem­ber 6th and we found the ta­bles had turned. Al­though this makes us sad for Bis­marck be­cause we want more snow, we were ex­cited to see the ground white across the cen­tral part of the state. Con­grats to the new Board of Di­rec­tors, Mark Forbes, Nick Parslow, Reily Bata, Jeff Seifert and the new Sec­re­tary Joanne Seifert. I’m en­cour­aged to see faces younger than me sit­ting on the Board, ready and will­ing to learn and guide this or­ga­ni­za­tion to more con­tin­ued suc­cess. But with that said, I’m sad to see By­ron Norsby, Mark Ship­ley, and Brian Sauer go. All of th­ese in­di­vid­u­als have ded­i­cated many hours to snow­mo­bil­ing and I’m sure they will still put in many more. Cheers to all of you as well as the other in­di­vid­u­als that make up the SND team. It’s a leg­isla­tive sea­son and the 2015 Leg­isla­tive Cam­paign is ag­gres­sive. In­for­ma­tion on the cam­paign can be found in the ad­di­tional pages of this mag­a­zine, so I will end this sec­tion with this. There is a say­ing I have quoted be­fore; “Eighty Per­cent of Suc­cess is Show­ing Up!” If we want to achieve suc­cess with the snow­mo­bil­ers 2015 Leg­isla­tive Cam­paign, SHOW UP! It’s that sim­ple, con­tact your lo­cal Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and Sen­a­tors, in­form them what we are do­ing and why, at­tend the com­mit­tee hear­ings at the state capi­tol and wear your snow­mo­bile jacket so you stand out, and hit re­peat un­til we achieve suc­cess. Lastly, as promised in the last is­sue, here is more in­for­ma­tion to com­mem­o­rate SND’s 40th An­niver­sary. Ev­ery­body give “One Clap” for those that served as SND’s Vice Pres­i­dent over the years!
