• 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.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"


    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.


The In-House Polaris Technician's 10 year Progression

Thieve Capital AKA Federal Way, WA.
This is Isabella. She's 13 now and helping with a top end on her sled.

It all started when she wanted to help install an E-start kit in 2009 after a ride on her trike. She was 3 at the time. Then she helped with the drill during the painful install of a Drop n Roll. From there she toned it down to replacing a-arms and installing aftermarket shocks using an 18 volt 1/2" Drive Snap On Electric gun for removal and a torque wrench for install.

She's rebuilt clutches and secondary's, installed tracks and turbo's.

She can tell you the positives of the Axys chassis. She'd make a great investment by Polaris for an Engineering degree.

During summers you'll see her on the ocean chasing salmon and gaffing tuna.

BTW, she was conceived during a sled trip in Revelstoke.

That's awesome! If you want to ride, you should learn to wrench, I say. Some kids out there are breaking much nicer newer sleds than mine and don't care because daddy will fix it. No kids of my own, but I do have a 1.5-year-old nephew who I can already tell got a full dose of the gearhead gene!

Awesome guys! My two are not into the game yet, we'll see.

But just get some crowd funding going when it's time to invest in school!
I'd pony up for that!!
