Happy Thanksgiving – Tuesday,November 20th 2018 Newsletter

Hello Snowmobilers,

Winter has arrived in Pittsburg!

We know how anxious many of you are to get out on the trails but the trails are still closed.
We will get the word out to you when things change.

News from the November monthly meeting-

There is a major change to the membership / snowmobile registration process this year.
Here are the details on joining the club and registering your snowmobile this year.

While you do not have to join a snowmobile club to register your sled in New Hampshire, there are a couple of reasons why we encourage you to do so:

You will receive a $30 discount on each snowmobile registered in your name.

You will be donating directly to the club of your choice as opposed to having the extra $30 for each registration going to the Trails Bureau and being divided amongst all of the clubs in the state.

In order to receive the $30 discount, NH Fish & Game now requires you to provide your current NHSA Membership Voucher number when you register your sleds, or pay the extra $30 per sled registration fee. You will receive your voucher number with your club membership.

There are several ways to purchase your membership:

1. If you are renewing your membership, complete the Mail-In Membership Application and mail it back to the office with your payment. Please be sure to include your e-mail and phone number. These are required to complete the NHSA membership. If you do not provide one, the Pittsburg Ridge Runners will make one up for you. Your membership voucher, cards and decals will be mailed to you.

2. Call the Pittsburg Ridge Runners office (603-538-1142) with your information and use a credit card to purchase your membership. Your membership voucher, cards and decals will be mailed to you.

3. Go to the Pittsburg Ridge Runners website, www.pittsburgridgerunners.org, go to the “Join Our Club” page and either print the Mail-In Membership Application, complete and mail it to the office with your payment; or complete the form online and use your credit card or PayPal account to purchase your membership. Your membership voucher, cards and decals will be mailed to you.

4. Go to the site NHSA Membership website. At the bottom of the page, use the “Click here to create a membership account”. Follow the instructions to complete the form and use your credit card to complete the purchase. If you have previously joined using this system, you just enter your log-in information and follow the instructions to renew your membership. You will be able to save or print your membership voucher. Your club cards/decals will be mailed to you.

Registration agents are not required to look up your voucher number so in the interest of saving time and aggravation, please have your voucher number with you or saved on your phone to show the agent at the time of registration.

The easiest way to buy your club membership is on the PRRSC website.
Please do it today.
