Due to concerns with COVID-19, we will be limiting our January meeting (1/16/21) to board members only. If you have any questions or concerns please contact a board member and they will bring it up at the meeting and get back to you. See BOD contact info under the Officers Tab.
Stay safe & start your snow dances!
Ok all, as many of you know due to COVID 19 the Ride-In has gone virtual this year. It will be very challenging but as snowmobilers NHSA is going to try to move forward to continue the tradition and our 49th year of the ride-in.
So we are still doing the auctions which includes our Carrol County basket. This year’s basket is “Entertainment”. Agreed this one is more challenging than in other years but we can do it for sure.
Some ideas are movie or show tickets, theme parks, even game tickets to our NE teams or even local ones. We can even go back old school with board games or up a few years video games or consoles! Start working your brains to come up with other ideas and more importantly go out and get those donations.
We have done the Ride-In with no snow and still bested our donations to Camp Sno-Mo so let’s not let those kids down. With any luck they will be back and Camp this year and we need to help make sure they can afford to go.
Sean Pinard @ Scrub Oaks will be heading up the basket for Carrol County so bring any donations to the SOS Clubhouse. If you have something you need picked up let us know maybe we can help. Virtual Ride-In is scheduled for the week of Feb 8th so we need the basket items by Jan 27th so we can bring them to NHSA.
To all our members, 2020 has been a rough year for many of us however for one of our neighbors near the clubhouse and residents of Madison, tragedy struck. Saturday December 19th the home of Sarah MacDonald and Paul Harvey caught fire and unfortunately was a total loss. The couple is safe including Sarah’s mom who was there at the time. This happened just before Christmas making it even worse, everything they owned is gone. If you have been through something like this you know what it can do to you.
As neighbors to us on Pound Road we are asking for donations if you have the ability and can help out the couple. There is a Go fund me page on the Town of Madison’s FB page if you choose to utilize that. This page also has more details. If you can and wish to help please send a check to SOS and in the memo just indicate MacDonald so we can direct the funds. Sean Pinard has been in contact with Nancy Harmon, a friend of the Sarah and Paul’s, she is heading up fundraising and the go fund me page. There has been talk of articles of clothing however at this point it seems they may be in good shape already with that, money unfortunately is the best thing at this time.
If you have any questions please contact Sean Pinard

Ok all, we did not originally list a work party for this coming Saturday as it is the day after Christmas and many will be hope with their families. However if you are not and looking for something to do, we have some work! We still have some maintenance to do on our 2000 Tucker, possible some more work on the 1000 if we are not using it. We have a large tree ready to come down between junctions Q & G. Possibly one to come down between Junctions T & M We still have a handful of trails that have not been checked and may need brushing as well as a few area’s that could use some signing.
If you are around, available and would like to help out let us know. We need to know if anyone is available to plan out some work and maybe breakfast. You can respond to Sean Pinard @ firstname.lastname@example.org thank you
