Making Tracks In Manitoba

The first annual "Making Tracks" snowmobile ride was hosted by Snoman to introduce MLAs to snowmobiling and enjoy Manitoba's beautiful scenery! During the ride, the group enjoyed a lunch at Birds Hill Park Shelter. We were also joined by the RCMP to ensure a safe ride.

Thank you to Enns Brothers for providing snowmobiles for our guests to ride and to Lance Thomson (official photographer for the Winnipeg Jets 2011-15) for joining us and taking great photos for us to share! Snoman partnered with member club Springfield Pathfinders and with Bird's Hill Park to make the day a success.

Snoman loves "I Love to Read" Month!

This past February, Snoman volunteered twice at Springfield Heights School to show that no matter how big or small you are, reading is always fun! The books selected for reading were "Deep Snow" by Robert Munsch, and "A Day on The Trails" by Big Daddy Tazz and published by Snoman.

We look forward to next year's "I Love to Read" Month!
