County Liaison Report- Al is still missing contracts from 4 clubs as well as land owner easements from clubs. If clubs need these, please contact Al. No other reports to be made.
The AWSC Report was given by Donna White, as Deb Levey was absent. Did clubs bring back questions or input on registration fee for Vintage and Antique Snowmobile Club? A few questions were asked regarding this club and the registration: 1) Why a $5 registration fee and not one similar to Vintage Car Clubs? This will be brought back to the club and questioned. 2) Will we still get the gas tax? Yes, the full amount will still be available. Information regarding Workshop, to be held in November, can be found in the AWSC magazine. Please get registrations in. Donna was able to meet with the new State Legislators- 37 new since December. Some questions that came up were regarding the tax revenue money used on our trails. We were happy to inform them that we volunteer our time and money to maintain our trail systems. Another Legislation Day is possible for the (near) future. We hope that legislators understand that we mostly want to be heard and listened to more than anything. No other updates.
The Youth Report was given by youth rep Tyler Brozek. Four youth riders attended the grass drags at Lake of the Woods Campground in Wautoma. The youth had a great time there. For workshop there will be another food drive. Contact Tyler if you have donations to be taken up. Tyler is also looking for another youth rep to join him for Columbia County. The age group is 12-19 (in high school). Please contact him if you have anyone in mind. No other updates.
A. Miss Snowflake- Rocky Run has a contestant and will get the paperwork as soon as possible. The information is on the AWSC website. As for the County Queen, the contestants would be run through the county with the same application as Miss Snowflake and voted on.
