Re: Snowmobile Organizations
Other than my $$ going toward land and environmental issues, why join? In the past, I have donated money to clubs but never really gotten involved in the meetings and such. I think that most people are not informed of the benefits that clubs have to offer, myself included. I am not a casual rider, in fact I tend to ride in groups of four to eight riders heading cross country for 50 to 60 miles on a day. When I think of riding with a club, I automatically think of this group of 20 to 50 sleds all trying to stay together on a trail. What a pain. In fact I went for part of a ride one day where over 100 sleds took part in the ride. I lasted all of about 10 miles.
What I would like to see in a club is people helping people. Things like: Winter survival classes, Avalanch safety, how to sessions like installing performance products, how to maintain your sled, doing basic maintenance, reviewing safety issues, land issues........ I could go on for ever.
Just a few of my thoughts.
