Investing in the Future of Snowmobiling, A Decision for Change
An Update from the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs
(Barrie, ON September 22, 2016) - At the 2016 Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) Annual General Meeting, members from snowmobile clubs across the province made a monumental decision that will significantly improve the way we do business. Following 24 months of consultations and briefings, the OFSC membership voted to implement the More on the Snow strategy laying the groundwork for the future of organized snowmobiling in Ontario.
So what does that mean for snowmobilers? It’s all good. Better yet, it’s great.
Internally, there will be a lot of change in the way OFSC snowmobile clubs deliver snowmobile trails, change which will take a number of years to implement. However, the message is clear – More on the Snow is about snowmobilers and providing consistently enjoyable riding experiences, no matter where you ride throughout the season.
“It’s about ensuring that resources are put to work in the most effective way possible within our changing environment” according to Paul Shaughnessy, Executive Director of the OFSC. “It’s about the efficient use of our grooming fleet to ensure groomers are ready to go when and where the snow falls.”
Whether a rider has been hitting the trails for years, or is brand new to this authentic/inherently Canadian experience, More on the Snow is intended to make life easier on volunteers and better for snowmobilers!
As the OFSC enters it’s 50th year, this commitment to More on the Snow is about creating an environment so that our children and their children can experience Ontario snowmobiling at it’s best for the next 50 years and beyond.
