Campout Host Needed for this Summer
   The ISSA is soliciting bids from its member clubs to host the 2019 Summer Campout, normally held
in July. As always, the ISSA provides $200 in incentive money to the host club, and as much as $600 in
expenses can be reimbursed through the ISSA.
   Events can be as simple or as elaborate as desired. Last year, the Snow Pioneers of Region 5
stepped forward to host a fall campout, but wet weather thwarted those efforts.
   If your club is interested in hosting this year’s campout, please reach out to your ISSA Region Director
or contact ISSA President Brian Carmichael at (319) 215-5006 or

Professional Snocross Returns to Dubuque March 8-9
   The Amsoil Championship Series returns to Iowa in March for the third year in a row for the Theisen’s
National Snocross race at Sundown Mountain Resort March 8-9. The weekend marks the seventh of
eight venues on the International Series of Champions’ 2018-19 circuit and is bookended by
Salamanca, N.Y., and the season-ending grand finale at Lake Geneva.
   Tickets are on sale now at any one of Theisen’s 24 retail locations across Iowa and Wisconsin.
Tickets can also be ordered online at
snocross.com. The track layout will remain the same as the 2018
race, and all spectator parking is at the Northeast Iowa Community College lot in nearby Peosta 12
minutes away. Seven buses will be arrive in the lot every 10-15 minutes to take spectators to the front
door at Sundown Mountain. These same buses will be available to take everyone back on the same
schedule. The cost for parking is $10 per car.
   Later on in March, Sundown is also hosting the first of four Midwest Extreme Snowmobile Challenge
events from Cor Powersports. The March 23-24 event will include hillcross, cross-country racing and hill-
climbing competition.

ISSA Call to Action to Support Single-Sticker Legislation
       The 88th Iowa General Assembly, 2019 Session is underway and the ISSA lobbyists, Mike Heller
and Paula Feltner, have been hard at work in Des Moines to help enhance the efforts of the ISSA to
ensure the future of the Iowa Snowmobile Program and the ability to have Iowa snowmobile trails and
the materials and equipment to make them possible.
      We need each of you to take action now to encourage legislators to pass the legislation we need to
continue our program.  
      The Iowa snowmobile program is completely user funded by the registration and trail pass dollars
generated by the snowmobilers across Iowa.  No tax dollars are used to support Iowa snowmobiling.  
The RTP dollars we have funded groomer purchases with in the past is increasingly difficult to get.
