Hello to all fellow Sno-Jammers,
I have a few important announcements to make.
It was brought to my attention that our website was not allowing members to renew online without the assistance of an administrator and this issue has been resolved.
All membershipís expired on September 30th and are suppose to be renewed by October 1st to be considered an active member of the Sno-Jammers Snowmobile Club.
If you have already paid your dues for this yearís membership; we thank you and disregard this notifications. However, if you still have not paid your annual club membership for this year, I encourage you to log into www.snojammers.org
where you will find a link to renew and pay your membership dues online. If you would rather pay for your membership in person, we ask that you please do so at the November 5th meeting.
Now for the fun stuff!!!

This is a WSSA safety update, Mick Steinman, WSSA safety guru, asked me to forward this information to all the clubs to let them know about some upcoming events. Most importantly is a 'Train the Trainer' course on October 26th.
This class is to certify instructors to teach the Youth Snowmobile Safety class for youngsters between the age of 12 and 16. This class will be held on October 26th in Moses Lake at the Fire Department meeting room, 701 E. 3rd St. The class will run from 9am to 4pm and attendees need to pre-register by contacting Cathie Barnes at WA State Parks at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mick is hoping each club will send at least one person for this certification so we can better train the kids around the state. (This course is also open to those who have previously been certified, but would feel more comfortable being re-certified.)
Please check out the attached WSSA Safety Schedule and if you have any questions about anything safety related, don't hesitate to contact Mick at email@example.com
