  1. John & John, Here is a site that has a lot of information from the "modeling" side. Academy of Model Aeronautics http://www.modelaircraft.org/gcsearch.aspx?q=drones They have been in the forefront of watching Legislation on Drones. They have some great videos of drones in flight.
  2. Skip, 93 here in Moultonboro and the 450th day that the LETTER OF UNDERSTANDING, not sure what version was posted last, is still MISSING.
  3. Skip, It’s time for the NHSA, NEW HAMPSHIRE SNOWMOBILE ALLIANCE!
  4. Skip, What sticks out to me is the phrasing IF A PERSON IS A MEMBER OF A STATE WIDE ASS-COSITION? What about the RSA? What is happening to a MEMBER OF A CLUB! As I said on Page 1 we HAVE to get NHSA out of the RSA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that the individual is a member of an organized New Hampshire nonprofit SNOWMOBILE CLUB
  5. Jeff, I must have searched NHSA and 30 Club Website before I found anything about the Annual Meeting itinerary. Cost $30.00 Board the Mount at11:00am, Lunch 11:30am, Mount leaves the dock at 12:30pm, returns 3:30pm. I think I may go down to the Pier and wave bon voyage! MAY 7th 2017 11am It's time for the 48th NHSA Annual Meeting - a time for gathering, meeting new friends and connecting with old ones. We will be voting on officers, important issues and socializing with New Hampshire's finest (and most generous) citizens! Who can wait to find out who will receive the awards for Lifetime Achievement, Snowmobiler of the Year, Groomer of the Year, Snowmobile Family of the Year, Junior Snowmobiler of the Year, Business of Year, and Club of the Year? Don't miss it! Remember to send in your nominations! Please keep in mind, due to the unique nature of our venue this year, we will need to take care to adhere to our schedule. This year, the annual NHSA meeting will be Sunday May 7th 2017, held aboard the MS Mount Washington. Registration/boarding will be from Weirs Beach at 11am with lunch from 11:30am to 1pm, with the boat leaving at 12:30. The meeting is expected to begin at 1:00 p.m and the boat returns approximntely 3:30 p.m. Menu: Salads: Caesar & House Salad Entrees: London Broil w/ wild mushroom saace & Chicken Cordon Bleu. **Coffee service available throughout the meal and assorted desserts following the meal. The fee per person, for anyone interested in attending is $30 per person. The luncheon and/or meeting are open to all club members. All club members are welcome to enter into discussions, but only persons named as club delegates or named altemate delegates (replacing a delegate) may make motions, vote and otherwise participate in the business meeting. Please contact the NHSA Office at 603-273-0220 or nhsaoffrce@nhsa.com with any questions.
  6. Jeff, Wouldn't this FLY in the face of the wording in the RSA where you join A CLUB not NHSA? So would not the RSA need to be changed? If that be the case could we not change it remove NHSA altogether as I stated in my prior Post???? Are Charlie and the GANG going to have their own little Space on the Mount Sunday? I get this feeling every time I see "THEM" sitting together at meetings.
  7. We need to get NHSA out of The Registration Discount Business! We need to amend the present RSA to say you must be a Member of a Nonprofit Snowmobile Club, Registered with The Attorney Generals Office or which ever branch of state Government is appropriate to cover the Discounts. I wrote Major Wimsatt a letter several months ago question NHSA ability to SELL or OFFER Registration Discounts based on how the present RSA is worded. It is my position the ability to offer the Discount is the Privileged, "not Write" of a "CLUB", not an association! You have to be a member of a "CLUB" that is a member of NHSA. NHSA has added to this you must be an individual Member of NHSA along with being a Member of a Club when you join a Club through the NHSA/CLUB Membership website. I do not know of any "ADMINISTRATIVE Rule" that may have been set up to give NHSA the ability to offer Registration Discounts. Read the RSA and tell me if i am wrong in MY way of thinking on this issue. Section 215-C:39 215-C:39 Registration Fees. – The fees to be collected under this chapter are as follows: I. Individual resident registration--$90 for each snowmobile registration upon presentation of a valid driver's license issued to a New Hampshire resident 18 years of age or older. An individual resident registering a snowmobile who provides proof, at the time of registration, that the individual is a member of an organized New Hampshire nonprofit SNOWMOBILE CLUB which is a member of the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association shall pay $60 for each snowmobile. No where in the RSA does it say the CLUB MEMBER needs to be a Member of NHSA! We need to change the WORDING Skip, How can we do this and how FAST. This needs to be done irregardless of the outcome of the pending "Consumer Complaints now in front of the Attorney General! Part 2 UPDATE I just noticed the phrase about a Club being in "GOOD STANDING" with NHSA is not in the RSA?
  8. Jeff, It has been my thought all along that the Mount Washington is not the "PROPER PLACE" to hold any kind of "Business Meeting", especially an ANNUAL MEETING. I thought I heard there is not enough room in the Main Dinning Salon to hold all that may attend? It may have been better to make it a FUND RASIER.

  10. Where is the NHSA Legal Team on this one? Went by NHSA HQ early yesterday afternoon and it looked like the lights were out? John, THANKS for finding the information!
  11. ???? This was posted on an NHSA Club Website. Anyone know about this or the Bill Number? I know NHSA must be on top of this. Maybe they will be talking about it at the Annual Meeting.
  12. Posted by CFK to MY Club Annual Membership Meeting in the Club Forum HOW did your Club memberships do this Year? After answering John I though it might be interesting to see how everyone did after last years disastrous Season. Moultonboro Snowmobile Club John, We had a very good year, 725 compared to last year's 415. Best year 2008-2009 747 Members. This was the year every one had 4-6 FEET of SNOW mixed with some ICE. We had to hire 2 guys to shovel our Roof off. I let my Dog out one night, came back to call her in but could no finder her? After putting my boots on and going down the steps in found her 2 houses down the street (Dead End). I did not find out how she had gotten out till the next morning. I was standing at the kitchen sink looking out the window as I saw she walking on top of the Snow which was as high as our chain-link fence and over she went again. I think most Clubs came back this season with membership numbers that were more normal numbers. More people road locally than went North thus SUPPORTING their LOCAL CLUBS! NHSA had some early Membership Number that touted 25,000 to 22,000 partway through the Season but HAD TO REVISE them at the end of the SEASON to a MORE realistic 18,500. CUMPUTER Glitch. Even the 18,000 number may not reflect how Membership went for NHSA, as this season there were a NUMBER of Clubs that gave their Members a choice of opting to not join NHSA but join only the Club only. $35.00 became $25.00 Club X NHSA __ . I know of one Club almost tripled their membership but only 20% opted for the addition of NHSA to their Membership. Was this a TREND this Season. It would be very interesting if Clubs were to let us know the if they had a choice of Membership options and how many choose not to join NHSA? My feelings on NHSA's Online Membership program. They are SELLING THEMSELVES? Yes, the 10 dollar Membership and the 2 dollar Processing Fee. If we, MSC had a $2.00 processing FEE we could have raked in another 1,500 $$$$$. CLUBS need to SELL themselves! It is not just mailing out Applications every September. It's the follow up. You know the guy that joined your Club in early September and it's mid December and the Trials are open. He put his membership CARDs (yes YOUR club Card) away for safe keeping and can not find them. He has the Trailer loaded and is ready to head North. What can you do. Can you e-mail Him YOUR Club "MEMBERSHIP CERTIFICATE", which you call up on your PC and just fill in his Info and with one Click of the Keyboard you save the day. Or no PC so you say, OK I will meet you at DaSilva's at 9:00 tomorrow morning. Usually when someone needs help, the most obvious to call is the Membership Person, as they are the ones that have a more one on one relationship with Members. Please let's hear form other Clubs. One last remark, For the last several weeks every time I turn on a RADIO, no mater what Station is on all I hear is the 60's HIT "LET ME TAKE YOU ON A SEA CRUISE". Is it only Me? If there are any grammatical or Speeeling errors, I am Left Handed!
