On behalf of the members of the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association—Arctic Cat, BRP, Polaris and Yamaha Motor Corporation—we are excited about the information on the Safe Riders! You make snowmobiling safe Safety Campaign.
Attached is a Safe Riders! order form to fill out and send back to the ISMA (by fax or mail) to obtain, free of charge, Safe Riders! materials that include the Snowmobiling Fact Book, brochures, posters and safety DVD.
We invite you to participate in the International Snowmobile Safety Week, being held Jan. 17-25, 2015. Many local clubs and snowmobile associations take this time to teach snowmobilers about safe riding and many dealerships help by putting on seminars teaching customers how to maintain their sleds and keep them running in top condition.
Visit www.snowmobile.org and download a Safety Week Campaign Action Manual with ideas on how to promote safety week and ideas for putting on safety week events.
The Go Snowmobiling campaign is expanding as more people check out the website for information on how to get started in snowmobiling. It’s a great information source for all snowmobilers with many links to other snowmobile related websites. We encourage you to check out the www.gosnowmobiling.org site. Part of Go Snowmobiling is the TAKE A FRIEND SNOWMOBILING campaign. You may want to join in—and ask some friends, some motorcyclists or ATVers to go snowmobiling. Many have tried snowmobiling for the first time with the experience resulting in the purchase of a new or used snowmobile, all because somebody asked them to come along and try out our winter recreation of choice.
The 7th annual TAKE A FRIEND SNOWMOBILING week is scheduled for Feb. 6-16, 2015. Grow your organization by partnering with local businesses and chambers of commerce to encourage our non-snowmobiling friends to join us for a time of fun. For more information and ideas on throwing a TAKE A FRIEND SNOWMOBILING event, visit www.gosnowmobiling.org. The Campaign Guide contains many great ideas.
