ISSA to Host Fall Campout At Manchester
     As no club stepped forward to host an ISSA campout this summer, the ISSA, per its by-laws, will be
hosting a campout this fall at the
Delaware County Fairgrounds in Manchester Oct. 5-7.
     Approved the board in an online vote, the event is being planned by the following ISSA members:
Past President Jim Willey, Eastern Iowa Tourism Committee Chairperson Becky Willey, Scholarship
Board member Steve Vorwald and Sherry Vorwald.
     Complete details, including registration, is available
here. You can also register by using the flyer at
right. The fairgrounds is the same location the Snow Pioneers used when its members hosted the
2015 ISSA Summer Campout.
Fall Campout
Hay Days
      Following up their state award in the same category at the ISSA annual convention in Cedar Rapids
last November, the Iowa Snowdrifters snowmobile club of Region 9 was named the American Council of
Snowmobile Associations (ACSA) Club of the Year at the 50th Annual International Snowmobile
Congress in June at Nova Scotia. Above, ISSA President Chris Willey presents the club with their plaque
at their summer cookout.
      Formed in the late 1970s, the Snowdrifters were recognized for their “outstanding contributions” to
the sport of snowmobiling. The club became the third from Iowa to be honored by ACSA, following the
Eastern Iowa Sledheads in 2014 and the Trail Blaz-zers in 2016.
      The Snowdrifters is a 100 percent member of the ISSA, and club membership currently exceeds 100
members. They maintain 220 miles of trail in the Solon-North Liberty area, and last month, they hosted
their fourth annual Big Town Showdown truck and tractor pull in Cedar Rapids. Proceeds from that
event benefit state and local organizations as well as the club’s scholarship program.
ISSA Annual Convention Rotates to Western Iowa this November
      The ISSA Annual Convention returns to the Arrowwood Resort and Conference Center at Okoboji
Nov.16-18 as the host site rotates to western Iowa this fall.
      Agenda details are being finalized, but members can register now by filling out the form below.
Sponsorship opportunities are also being sought and can be secured with the form below as well.
      With 2018 an even-numbered year, elections for directors in even-numbered regions will held at
convention, and a new president will be named as current ISSA President Chris Willey fulfills his
two-year term.
      The Iowa State Snowmobile Trail Grant Program will also be electing its Western Representative
seat for its Review and Selection Committee that weekend.
