Kelli Ann Gerdes, daughter of Region 6 Director Gene Gerdes, won the 2015
ISSA Grand Raffle during the drawing at the Nov. 22 convention in Dubuque.
She received $10,000 from the ISSA toward the purchase of a new
snowmobile from an ISSA-member dealer. In December, she picked up her
new 2015 Ski-Doo Renegade 600 from Black Hawk Marine in Lake View.

David Carmichael Memorial
Ride Planned for Feb. 26-28
    ISSA officers, directors and members are planning a memorial
snowmobile ride across the northern tier of Iowa in February to pay tribute to
one of the organization’s most influential leaders.
    The David Carmichael Memorial Snowmobile Ride will begin in Spencer
around 9 a.m. on Feb. 26 and end in Cresco, Saturday night, Feb. 28.
Overnight stops will be in Algona at the Brookstone Lodge and Suites on Feb.
26 and the AmericInn in Osage on Feb. 27. Participants are asked to meet at
the Days Inn in Spencer the night of Feb. 25.
    The three-day event is intended to commemorate the contributions of
Carmichael and honor his legacy to organized snowmobiling in Iowa. He
served as ISSA President from 1994 to 1995 and remained active in the
association for 40 years.
    Carmichael, a charter member of the Cedar Falls Sno Hawks snowmobile
club of Region 4, passed away Dec. 23, 2013, at his rural Tripoli home
following a short battle with ALS. He was 70 years old.
    Carmichael’s son and current Sno Hawks President Brian Carmichael is
spearheading the ride along with other Sno Hawks members and close
family friends and ISSA officers Scott and Dennis Nauman.
    The ride will also benefit the Iowa ALS Chapter. Participants are asked to
raise donations or pledge so much per completed mile. However,
contributions are not mandatory to participate.
    “We are going to leave that up to the riders, whether they want to have
pledges per mile or straight donations or if they just want to ride along,” Scott
Nauman explained. “Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated.”
    Rooms are blocked at each hotel under the ALS Memorial Ride. For
reservations, dial (712) 262-2979 for Days Inn; (515) 200-0030 for Brookstone
Lodge; and (641) 832-2200 for the AmericInn.
    Pre-registration is encouraged. Please fill out the form below.
Commemorative shirts are also available to purchase. For more information
on the ride, contact Carmichael at (319) 215-5006, Dennis Nauman at (641)
425-4141 or Scott Nauman at (641) 425-9898. For more information on the
