Welcome to Riverside Snowmobile Club

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Season


It is now the time to start thinking about snowmobiling and your club is gearing up for another season. There are lots of exciting things happening at the club, district and provincial levels that will make things easier and more fun for riders and volunteers.

Your club executive has just returned from the OFSC AGM and Convention. The theme this year is #weareasone. The hashtag symbolizes a new direction and commitment to organized snowmobiling in Ontario. The theme is a call to action at many levels. From a rider perspective, every club including Riverside, needs the active participation of many more volunteers in order to sustain our world class trail network. By volunteering you can gain a great sense pride and accomplishment in knowing that you helped contribute to our world class trail system. At a club and district level, it recognizes that we are not alone in our efforts. We can rely on our neighboring clubs, just like they rely on us, to provide a safe and enjoyable riding experience. And finally, at the provincial level, we will work collaboratively with our strategic partners from industry and government.

So, what does all this really mean. What differences will you see this season. First, we are breaking down barriers to improve efficiency. Our biggest accountability to you, the permit buyer, is to make certain that your permit dollar goes as far as it can. As part of this plan don't be surprised to see Riverside groomers on Seaway trails, NVSA trails or LGSA trails. And conversely, don't be surprised to see their groomers on our trails as we move to a coordinated grooming schedule. The goal is to ensure the rider experiences consistent trail quality across the entire district.

Permits went on sale October 1 on a new and improved platform that will be easier and more user friendly. A tremendous amount of work was done in the off season to ensure we have a reliable and stable website to process your orders. Also, launching in October is a new Interactive Trail Guide (ITG) and the return of a new app-based guide for your smart devices. Both the guide and the app will have new and improved functionality such as routing and gps location.

The Riverside club was started back in 1973 by a group of volunteers as a social club of fun events andcamaraderie. People coming together as one group for the betterment of all. That is the direction you executive is taking for this coming season. So, put down your smart phone and come out and be reintroduced to social fun with other people that have the same common interest as yourself.There are numerous opportunities to get involved. See the rest of the newsletter for a list of things that are currently being planned. And if you don't see something that peaks your interest, drop us line and we will work to find something to your liking.
