Snowmobile Iowa Planned Again this
Winter Along with Charity, Youth Events
 Based on feedback and inquiries at the 2017 ISSA Convention in Cedar Rapids in November, ISSA
officials will once again be inviting clubs to host Ride Iowa events this winter, weather permitting.
 Event coordinator and Past ISSA President Bruno Andreini said he was encouraged by the response
from members at convention, despite every ride planned last season being cancelled due to poor trail
 “The whole idea behind Ride Iowa is for clubs to showcase their trail systems to other riders from
across the state and to show people that they don’t need to travel a day out of state to ride when they
can get the same experience just two to three hours from their home,” Andreini said.
 Two events are already planned this winter. On Jan. 14, the ISSA returns to Huxley for its 11th Annual
Winter Kids Ride on the Heart of Iowa Nature Trail for families with the Spina Bifida Association of Iowa.
In February, Isabelle Willey, coordinator of the ISSA’s youth program, is hoping to host a youth ride.
Location to be determined pending snowcover.
