Groomer Operator of the Year: This is presented to an outstanding volunteer who makes sure that the trails we ride all winter long are as smooth as possible.
Club of the Year: Do you feel your club has recently made great strides in bettering snowmobiling? Has your membership been successful in hosting charity events or legislative rides? Any success story is an entry, let SAM know all about your club’s hard work and good fortune.
Dealer of the Year: Do you have a local snowmobile dealer who understands the importance of a relationship with a club? They donate items for raffles, help fix grooming equipment or even donate big-ticket items that are valued in the thousand of dollars. That’s a solid nomination in my book.
Legislator of the Year: SAM has always had fantastic relations with our legislators at the State House, but suppose your local State Rep. or Senator has been of great assistance. Let’s let that legislator know how much we appreciate it.
Family of the Year: On any given weekend snowmobile families are hard at work, some clear trails, others run events. Many families are multi-faceted; Dad grooms, Mom is a club officer and the kids fold and stamp the club mailing. Let everyone know about the great families that dedicate themselves to your club and SAM.
Junior Snowmobiler of the Year: Speaking of families, there always seems to be a teenager out there with his Mom & Dad doing the work of four adults. Chances are, this youngster will be President of your club in a few short years! Let’s keep the flame burning and recognize these talented kids now.
Snowmobiler of the Year: Who is the person in your club that is always there when needed? The one who get the trails cleared and groomed, takes on special projects, builds positive relations with landowners, town officials and legislators. Put the spotlight on this worthy soul, they deserve it!
Trail Worker of the Year: Where would we be without dedicated volunteers to maintain our trails?
Friend of SAM: How about those non-snowmobilers and landowners that support us?
