Snowmobilers will be having a rockin’ good time in Aberdeen this November 9 & 10.  While there may not be snow on the ground, there will plenty of winter action going on at the 2012 South Dakota Snowmobile Association (SDSA) convention where “Snowmobiling Rocks!”.  Hosted by the Aberdeen Driftbusters Snowmobile Club, the event will be held at the Aberdeen Ramkota Convention Center.

Christine Jourdain of American Council of Snowmobile Associations speaking @ SDSAFor the first time, we are excited to have Christine Jourdain with the American Council of Snowmobile Associations joining us for the convention.  We are also happy to be partnering with one of our own local businesses, First Place Parts, who is bringing nationally known trainer Mike Duffy to Aberdeen on November 10th for an Avalanche Awareness, Avoidance and Rescue education session.  In addition to snowmobile related vendors, we are interested in having attendees display their vintage sleds during convention.  More information can be obtained from Jim Weaver at 605-216-5309.

The Convention begins on Friday with meetings of the SDSA Board (9 am), Governor’s Snowmobile Advisory Council (1 pm), and Snowmobile Club Presidents (5 pm).   Following the Beer N Bull session will be the annual SDSA auction of snowmobile related items.  The highlight of the evening will be John Green’s presentation of his original painting of a snowmobile scene that will be auctioned to the highest bidder.   Saturday includes the SDSA annual meeting, trade show and educational sessions.  The convention will conclude with the SDSA Awards Banquet and special entertainment.  The weekend will be jam packed full of snowmobile information.  More convention information and registration details can be found on the Aberdeen Driftbusters snowmobile club website.  Registrations and payments can also be made online for the convention at the club’s website.
