GRAND RAFFLE
2015 ISSA Award Nominations Due June 1
       It is once again time to think about nominating some very worthy Iowa
snowmobilers for the ISSA’s Annual Awards Program. We encourage every
ISSA Member and/or Club to recognize that individual that goes above and
beyond or is a steady contributor for the club and sport of snowmobiling.         
       Every club officer(s) or ISSA member knows a snowmobiler or two who
have made a difference. So now it's your turn to recognize those individuals
by submitting a nomination for one, two or even all eight categories of
awards given annually. 2015 nomination forms and contest rules are
available on the
ISSA Awards page. Click link at left.
       Nominations are due by midnight on June 1. Nominations can be
submitted via email (preferred method) anytime after April 1st or via U.S. mail
as long as they are postmarked as of June 1, 2015. Email nominations to
both
scott4@iowatelecom.net and suepaulus81@gmail.com. Hard copy
nominations are to be mailed to ISSA Awards, c/o Mindy Scott, P.O. Box 435,
Lone Tree, Iowa 52755. Your nominations should include:
       The ISSA Award Recipients for Snowmobiler, Snowmobile Family, Youth
Snowmobiler and Dealer of the Year are submitted to the American Council
of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA) for consideration in their annual award
program that is held in conjunction with the International Snowmobile
Congress each June.
       The ISSA Groomer of the Year Recipient is submitted to Arctic Cat for
consideration in their International Groomer of the Year program which is
presented during the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame ceremonies
held in Eagle River, WI each September.
       Let's make 2015 a banner year for the ISSA’s awards program. All it
takes is for each club to submit at least one nomination for any or all of the
award categories. Who knows, your nomination may become one of the
2015 ISSA Award Recipient.
       In addition to selling the winning ticket (see the February 2015 digital
issue online), the Sac County Snow Lovers also sold the most tickets in the
2014 ISSA Grand Raffle. For their efforts, the club received a bonus check
from the ISSA for $760. Making the presentation  to the club is ISSA Region 6
Director Gene Gerdes.
       The ISSA is continuing the same grand raffle in 2015. Tickets cost $20
each or six for $100. Early bird drawings for $1,000 in snowmobile
accessories will be held at the ISSA Summer Campout with the grand prize
drawing at the annual convention at Storm Lake in November. The winner
receives $10,000 toward the purchase of a new snowmobile from any
ISSA-member dealer.
       Officers and members from the ISSA will be heading east this spring to
represent Iowa snowmobiling interests on the national and international
stage.
       April 18-21, local leaders flew to Washington, D.C., to participate in the
American Council of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA) annual D.C. Fly-In.
Next, they travel to Niagara Falls, N.Y., for the 47th Annual International
Snowmobile Congress (ISC) hosted by the New York State Snowmobile
Association June 10-13.
       Each event is filled with guest speakers and meetings related to the
sport of snowmobiling. In D.C., the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) will be
a hot topic as funding for this important grant source is set to expire in May.

Hoermann met with Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst during their visit to Capitol Hill.
