The members of the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association (Arctic Cat, BRP, Polaris and Yamaha) join the organized snowmobile community in announcing the Take a Friend Snowmobiling Contest for 2012. State snowmobile association members of the American Council of Snowmobile Association (ACSA) are eligible to win a $5,000 cash prize by sponsoring Take a Friend Snowmobiling activities throughout their states.

Contest events can be held any time between Jan. 1, 2012 and March 31, 2012. The contest forms are self explanatory and are available on the www.gosnowmobiling.org website. (Just click on the Take a Friend Snowmobiling logo.)

The event was created to support all snowmobile associations of ACSA and their clubs to enhance and expand their partnership with local chambers of commerce, visitor and convention bureaus, snowmobile dealers and other businesses related to the snowmobiling community.

The benefits of winning the $5,000 prize for your state association could mean such things as more trail signs, groomers and enhancements for trails in your state, with the biggest benefit of all: introducing your non-snowmobiling friends to your favorite winter activity. Your club is encouraged to participate in the event and partner with local media, radio stations, television stations, etc., in promoting your Take a Friend Snowmobiling event and your club activities.

Extensive research has shown that a vast majority of non-snowmobilers who live in the snow belt are very interested in snowmobiling. When asked to rate their interest on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest level of interest) non-snowmobilers rate their interest at 9.

Research has also shown us that most individuals that live in the snow-belt see snowmobiling as a great way to:

- Enjoy the scenery

- Get outdoors and have fun with family and friends

- Go to unique places and see amazing sights

- Have fun in the winter outdoors and be able to go home tired and ready for a good night's sleep.

This is the first annual Take a Friend Snowmobiling contest, sponsored by the manufacturers who encourage all snowmobilers to take their non-snowmobiling friends out snowmobiling to enjoy the winter.
