Proudly maintaining snowmobile trails in
northern Oneida County, New York,
including north Rome, Western,
All Trailbusters Snowmobile Trails are Officially Closed for the Season
The Trailbusters wish to extend a thank you to all of the very gracious landowners who allowed the use of their land during this very successful snowmobiling season.
As we state
every year, motorized vehicles of any type, including ATVís and dirt
bikes, are not permitted to use the trail system during the offseason. The only exception will be for club volunteers who will be closing
gates and fences and removing signs.
Club Elections - May 13, 2014
The Trailbusters Snowmobile Club will have
our annual election of officers at our May 13th meeting. If there are
any members out there who are interested in running for office, please let
Club Secretary Millie Piersall know. John Beggs, (our Nominating
Committee) has presented a slate of officers, all of whom are all
willing to serve as shown below.
Club Update from our Secretary Millie Piersall - April 7, 2014
NYSSA SUPER RAFFLE TICKET FINAL REMINDER
The drawing date for the NYSSA Super Raffle is coming up fast! (26 Apr 2014)
There are 51 great prizes, with the major ones being three 2014 snowmobiles and $5.000 cash. There are 30 other cash prizes in amounts of $100.00, $200.00, $250.00 and $300.00, plus many gift certificates and overnight lodging packages. These prizes appeal to both snowmobilers and non-snowmobilers.
This is a friendly last reminder to members who have not yet returned stubs and money. Final turn in date is 15 April 2014. If you still have tickets, wonít you reconsider and sell or purchase your tickets so you can have a chance at these prizes while supporting your club? Those who have already responded, please discard this notice. Your support is very much appreciated.
We have ended a wonderful snowmobiling season. We hope you had the chance to enjoy the trails. Your continued support of the club which enables us to provide you the smooth groomed trails is appreciated. We hope to see all present members back again next season. Encourage your friends and neighbors to join the club so we can continue to provide the class trails expected of us.
A heads up on renewing memberships for the coming season: First and more importantly, blank vouchers will no longer be issued. We regret not being able to provide this convenient service to you wherein you were able to renew your club membership and get the blank voucher at our local snowmobile dealers. Membership applications will still be processed by the club after receiving your membership request, then mailed to you.
NYSSA has moved to a new membership system effective 1 April 2014. The look of the online membership system will be slightly different from the past.
One of the most apparent changes is that you will no longer need your NYSSA ID # and old password to enter into the membership system and renew your membership.
Your logon or your user ID will be your e-mail address and you can make up your password. Unfortunately, since this is a brand new system you will need to re-enter all your information including your address and any other person who registers a sled under your voucher e.g., your spouse or partner, or child under 18.
Any name and address that appears on the sled registration issued by DMV must also appear on the NYSSA voucher, and it must be recorded within your member account. Handwritten changes to the voucher will not be accepted at DMV, so be sure the information that you input, including your address, is accurate.
The new system will generate a totally unique voucher number for each membership year.
Additional information on the new membership system will be provided on the NYSSA website and within the NYSSA Online Magazine over the coming months.
