    Penelope reacted to gunmaker in I'M BACK!!!!!!   
    After a long hiatus, i'm back. YUP, another "old fart" is back. Things have changed though. I am now retired, after 23 years of doing it. I have moved north to West Stewartstown. The big purple truck, Barney, is gone, miss the ole girl. Sleds have changed, have picked up a 4 seat RZR for the summer. So, if you see the orange Crossfire with the guy wearing a 509 helmet with pink braids flying, that would be me. Ride on, ride safe.

    John I agree with you. All someone has to do is ask and I will be more than happy to help on any issue. There are many steps involved to get to an end product.

    You get serviced ok. Dry and hard, no lube either.
    New group will probably be another way for you to have to buy a voucher to join a club and buy another voucher to register your sled.
    Here is a video of the County Directors at last NHSA Board meeting when someone had a good idea to help the sport or their respective clubs. Does this look familiar to you guys Rob or Dirt Dummy?

    "dedicated to serving our members"
    That doesn't sound like anything that NHSA would be interested in …

    Penelope reacted to pekabu in Special Meeting   
    It's seems that NHSA is really trying to consolidate the power into the Board.   Instead of embracing the membership  (clubs specifically) it appears to really be attempting to solidify control and pushing their agenda.    I'm really thinking it's time for another association.

    Last issue for this season.Couple of interesting items, first was the announcement of the retirement of F&Gs John Wimsatt after 25 years with the department. In his announcement he talks about addressing issues with the procedures surrounding verification of proof of membership by drafting revised administrative rules.
    Second is a confirmation by Chris Gamache of BoT that there were 46,000+ sled registrations this season, but that we need 49,000 registrations to maintain $1.6 million funding for the trails. He also addresses the problems the clubs have with membership and volunteers, and questions how we'll get the funding and people needed to maintain trails.
    The third interesting item was an announcement on page 9 that as of the time of printing of this edition there was still no candidate for NHSA vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. Directky above that was a list of the slate of officers for the 2017 NHSA elections with names, including president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. Below that it says that the newly elected officers will be presented at the May 2016 Annual Meeting.I guess I still don't know if there are candidates for the positions.

    I'll tell you why some get worked up, because when the snow goes away so do the snowmobiles, X country skiers, dog sleds, and people on snow shoes. The jack wagons on mtn bikes and fat tire bikes feel entitled to use the trails year round, which pisses off the land owners who in turn close the trails!

    My 10..

    1, Get CPR/First aid training.
    2, Obey signs.
    3, Carry a fully stocked first aid kit.
    4, Carry a spare belt, and a 20' length of rope along with a small tool kit.
    5, Assume the worst is just over every hill, around every corner.
    5, KNOW where you are, KNOW how much distance you can cover on the gas you have.
    6, Someone needs to know your route and ETA back.
    7, Ride alone only if you have to.
    8, Stay off fresh groomed trails if you can. Allow it to set up.
    9, Slow down.
    10, Should the worst happen and you have to act- CALM DOWN! Slow methodical decision making is crucial. This is when the first aid knowledge will come in handy and you need to be able to apply it. It sounds stupid, but rehearsing what you might do in your head helps. It is a form of practice.
