Annual Convention Returns
to Waterloo in November
The 43rd Annual ISSA Convention will return to the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center in
Waterloo this fall as the rotation for hosting the three-day event moves east Nov. 18-20.
Registration and agenda details appear above right and in the October and November issues of the
Iowa Snowmobiler magazine. The adjoining Ramada Inn will serve as the host hotel. Reservations
there can be made by dialing (319) 233-7560.
The ISSA Convention Planning Committee announced a Snow Show will be held in conjunction
with the convention. Details will also appear in these issues of the magazine. If you have questions,
please contact committee chair Scott Nauman at (641) 425-9898.
During the General Membership Assembly Saturday morning, a new president will be elected as
Merv Hoermann ends his second two-year term at the helm of the ISSA. He previously served from
2007-08 and is the only president to lead the organization twice.
History will also be made Saturday morning once Vice President Chris Willey is elected to succeed
Hoermann. Willey and his father Jim will become the first father-son tandem elected to oversee the
ISSA. The elder Willey served from 2013-14.
As it is an even-numbered year, elections will be in the even-numbered regions.

Snocross Racing Coming
to Iowa in Early March
Sundown Mountain Resort at Dubuque will host the seventh leg of the eight-race season for the
Amsoil Championship Snocross series March 3-4, according to the circuit’s official website at www.
Releasing its schedule in September, the professional season begins Nov. 25-27 at Duluth and
ends two weeks after its Iowa stop at Lake Geneva, Wis.
The ISSA officials are making plans to promote the organization and Iowa snowmobiling in general
at the Dubuque event.
“We are going to want to have an ISSA presence there,” ISSA Vice President Chris Willey said in
announcing the race stop to the ISSA Board of Directors. “There will be a lot of people coming into Iowa
for this event, and it will be a good captive audience for us.”
“This will be good exposure for the ISSA, and it’s nice to see these type of events still coming to our
state,” added ISSA President Merv Hoermann. “We just need to pray for snow so they can have it here.”
Members of the Saylorville Dam Snowmobile Club of Region 7 helped staff the ISSA booth at the Spina

Iowa Congressman Rod Blum recently met with ISSA Vice President Chris Willey, ACSA Midwest
Chapter Vice Chair Jim Willey, and ISSA Eastern Iowa Tourism Chairperson Becky Willey to talk about
snowmobile recreation opportunities and economic impact in Iowa and across the country.
Congressman Blum continues to support snowmobilers and access for snowmobiling and all
Powersports in Washington DC. The snowmobilers presented Congressman Blum with a check for his
reelection campaign from FOSPAC. All snowmobilers are encouraged to get out and vote in the
upcoming election to keep and send legislators to Washington, D.C. and to state capitols who will
support snowmobiling issues, Powersports access, and the freedoms that we all enjoy.
