I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.
A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.
A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.
If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.
If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.
Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.
As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.
Have a great season.
From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.
Not to tie up this thread with boring sled stories, but sled broke down in a bowl / lake at night. Tore apart case to find the metal cheesegrader. Doubled out Frisby Ridge 40 km of shitty whooped out trail. Came in the next day with his backup sled and spare sprokets and oil and sat phone, but nobody had a chain. Chaincase had multiple cracks in it and had chain had a few bad kinks in it. Socked in bad were heli couldn't fly onto lake, so reparied as best as possible to ride out of bowl and to top of ridge. Owner of sled is well off, and figured heli-ride would be better then a towing out sh*tshow. Plus we got to ride the rest of the day !!
