ACSA DC Fly-in

Montana Snowmobile Association was happy to participate in the annual snowmobile Fly-in in Washington DC , April 22 thru 25th.

This was our 18th trek to Washington to Tell the Truth About Snowmobiling.

Our first day was spent attending our Western Chapter meeting, and the ACSA board meeting.  The next day we had a great day filled with speakers.  We were pleased to listen to Chief Tom Tidwell of the Forest Service, our friend and partner Christopher Douwes of the Federal Highway Administration, and other important agencies.  Our third day was our day on Capitol Hill.  We had meetings with Steve Daines personally, and staff from Jon Tester’s office, dropped an information packet at the office vacated by Ryan Zinke.

We are reminded each year how important our visits are.  We must stay in front of these people with our concerns for access. Christine Jourdain South Dakato Boys Tom Tidwell Christopher Douwes Crew at Tester’s office Cliff, Scott and Jason   Montana Coffee  Our guys, working together.

Snow FUN

The Montana Snowmobile Association held their annual ride and banquet in Great Falls February 3rd and 4th.  The Great Falls Snowmobile Club hosted.

We had a great ride in the Kings Hill area on Saturday.  There were 3 separate groups, heading out in different directions.  Each group found some deep snow and had a fun ride.  In the afternoon we all met at the grooming shed for a wonderful chili feed, also put on by the Great Falls Snowmobile Club.

Awards were presented at the banquet.
