Treasurer, Past President
Alan Butler joined the Snoman Board of Directors in 2010 as a director for the Western Region. In April 2011, Alan was elected as vice president and then president and served in that role until 2020.
Alan, his wife and family have been snowmobiling since 1974. Alan & Linda lived in Stony Mountain for 30 years and rode a lot of the Interlake trails. Upon his retirement, Alan & Linda moved to Foxwarren and became a member of the Snowtraxx’s Snowmobile Club. Alan’s first involvement with the club was taking over the trail signing responsibilities for 40 kilometres of trail. He was elected vice president of the club and it was at this time he attended his first Western Region meeting. Alan was elected as club president and club representative for the Western Region. In 2008, Alan was elected as chair of the Western Region and in 2010 became the Regional Snoman Director.
Alan has always been a strong community supporter and volunteer and has considerable experience on volunteer boards, both at the community and provincial level. Being employed by one of the largest aerospace companies in Manitoba for 35 years, Alan as the manager of Aircraft Operations was responsible for a workforce in excess of 250 employees and therefore has considerable experience in labour relations, budgeting and management.
Alan and his wife Linda raised a family of three, of which all snowmobiled and has one son and his family of two that are avid snowmobilers. Alan says, “There’s nothing better than going for a ride with your grandchildren”. Alan and Linda usually ride about 2,500 miles per season; they do not go south but stays at home and enjoys the winters.
Alan believes that the clubs are the strength in the Snoman organization and we must all work hard to strengthen the relationship between the clubs and the Snoman.
