WSSA Items of Interest

Greetings WSSA!

Let me take a minute and pass on a few things that have come through my e-mail inbox.

First off, this weekend (Aug 18-20) marks the WSSA Summer Meeting and Campout.  While there are likely no campsites available, you are invited to join us for the weekend's activities.  We'll have a chili feed and meet and greet on Friday night.  The meeting starts at 9am on Saturday after breakfast (approx. 8am).  After the meeting concludes mid-afternoon, we'll have a couple of fundraisers (selling root beer floats and a rubber ducky race in the river) to support the Political Action Committee and the Legal Action Fund.  We'll cap the day with a potluck dinner (WSSA supplies the meat).  Feel free to join us for all or part of the day; it will be a fun time and you'll be updated on what to expect for the 2017/18 snowmobile season.  (Meals on Saturday will be $5 each for breakfast and lunch, and $10 for dinner.)  The location is the Blu-Shastin RV Park on the north side of Blewett Pass near the town of Peshastin.  (Look 'em up online and call them if you are interested in camping... they *might* have a empty site.) 

Check out the latest news from the American Council of Snowmobile Associations.  Their August news can be found by clicking 

Polaris recently sent out a survey to find out a little about the (snowmobile) buying habits of snowmobilers.  They aren't looking for any personal info.  If you'd like to participate, you can find it at

Washington State Parks is seeking a couple of individuals for the Snowmobile Advisory Committee (SMAC).  The committee convenes semi-annually and advises State Parks on program policy, funding priorities and issues related to trail grooming, snow-removal sanitation, education and enforcement.  The committee will have two vacancies this fall.  One must be filled by a resident of Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, Lincoln or Spokane County, and the other by a resident of Adams, Whitman, Franklin, Walla Walla, Columbia, Garfield or Asotin County.  Nominations must be received by Aug. 30, 2017. New appointments begin Oct. 1, for a term of three years.  To send nominations or request an application, contact the Winter Recreation Program at, P.O.
