  1. I got a similar reaction where I registered, but didn't bother trying to explain.
  2. United Snowmobile Alliance

    "dedicated to serving our members" That doesn't sound like anything that NHSA would be interested in …
  3. You convinced me Mr. Copeland. I registered both sleds Resident No Discount. To support the club where I ride I intend to submit a donation through their website store rather than buying a membership that would be shared with NHSA.
  4. I've been sledding for 18 years now, and so far I have only needed to be towed out of the woods once. Dave Bowles was the one who came by while he was grooming and helped me out. I had heard of him often before that, but it was the only time I got to meet him. Dave was a good man. Between getting my sled to a spot where we could load it on the trailer, and driving me to get my truck, Dave spent at least 2 hours helping me that day. I tried to offer him some compensation for his time and fuel, but he would not accept. He suggested that I purchase an OVSC membership instead, which I did as soon as I got home.
  5. Grass Drags & Watercross 10/5/18 thru 10/7/18

    UL said Deerfield Fair was 150k over 4 days. Traffic was a nightmare there too. I skipped both events.
  6. I did not know Robert Cicchetto, but learned about his passing from a friend this morning. Apparently he was on his way north for a sledding weekend on Friday. This was posted by his daughter on his Facebook page: " Last night while trying to go North for some snowmobiling, he and a friend encountered icy conditions that had them needing to detach the trailer from his truck. Some hold let go, and the trailer ended up running away somehow dragging my Dad underneath. " According to the post, he was taken to Dartmouth and initially they thought he would be Ok. https://www.facebook.com/robert.cicchetto
  7. 957 mi. We did three trips up to Pittsburg. Best photo was of my wife on Diamond Ridge in January.
  8. Sunday ?

    Thinking about maybe doing a day-trip on Sunday. Maybe drive up to Gorham and head north. I do not know that area at all Anybody interested? The weather looks promising. Cloudy, but not too warm.
  9. Club poker run or solo blast

    Make a donation to the club and ride in the opposite direction.
  10. Plus possible trail closure..... Well, somebody had to say it
  11. Finally going riding

  12. This sticker

    Rookie! 10 yrs & 16k
  13. Damnit! (If that's allowed)

    So I guess this trail is gonna have a killer base in a couple days .. (photo posted on PRRSC FB page)
  14. Damnit! (If that's allowed)

    HELL YA it's allowed ( if HELL YA is allowed)... 3 days ago there was good riding and nicely groomed trails statewide. Now it is a total Do-Over . Dammit indeed!
  15. Coming soon

    I would consider this to be reasonable IF it was spelled out that, the NHSA Membership Portal is only intended for those who want to join the NHSA along with their club membership. Those who want to join a club ONLY can just do so through the club website, or in person with a club agent. Personally, I prefer to join a club only, and I would not expect to be able to process my club only membership through the NHSA Portal. I did it directly with the club I chose to join.
