Rural Cass Snowmobile Club is asking you to renew your club membership for the 2015/2016 snowmobiling season. Please keep in mind that your membership helps keep more than 100 miles of groomed snowmobile trails available in rural Cass County.
If you were a member last year, thank you. We appreciate your help to keep the trails running. If you forgot to renew your membership, this would be a great time to renew it. Here is a link to the membership application.
All Rural Cass Snowmobile Club members are encouraged to meet at 8:30 AM on Saturday, Nov. 21 at Gordy’s in Mapleton to help with snowmobile trail signing. The goal is to get about 35-40 miles done on Saturday.
NDSU Farmhouse Fraternity also will be helping with the signing. Help is needed in both signing and in driving. If you can help, be sure to meet on Saturday morning.
Join the Rural Cass Snowmobile Club for next year (2014-2015 snowmobiling season) while you’re at SnowJam 2014 and get a great deal.
Not only will you get $5 off your club membership (plus all the benefits of being a club member for the remainder of this winter), but you’ll also get 20 extra tickets for chances to win one of the SnowJam 2014 prizes!

Members of the Rural Cass Snowmobile Club are encouraged to attend a SPECIAL club meeting on Thursday, Dec. 19, at 7 PM at Hagge’s Bar and Grill, Mapleton.
This meeting will be focused on further discussion on the future of the north loop of the club’s snowmobile trail system. Topics will include:
- Discussion on potentially getting an extension from Snowmobile ND to complete the trail signing for the north loop (deadline was Dec 15 and 48 miles are not signed); this loop connects Mapleton, Harwood, Argusville, Arthur and Amenia
- Determining if there are enough volunteers to sign the remaining 48 miles ASAP if an extension is granted
- Discussion on trail changes in the north loop for this year, in order to avoid current construction
- Future of north trail overall due to lack of volunteers to help with signing, including discussing any ideas members have to put a plan in place early to secure volunteers
All current and past club members are encouraged to attend and offer their ideas and opinions.
Rural Cass Snowmobile Club has scheduled a SPECIAL MEETING for all local club members for Monday, Dec 16, at 7 PM at Hagge’s Bar and Grill, Mapleton.
Trail signing wrap up plans need to be discussed for the north loop of the trail connecting Mapleton, Harwood, Argusville, Arthur and Amenia. The remaining trail signing for this loop needs to be completed ASAP or the trail will NOT be opened this year. The deadline was Dec 15 set by Snowmobile North Dakota.
This is an urgent issue and we need member representation at this meeting to make a good decision about the trail. All local snowmobilers are encouraged to attend.
Safe riding is the key to any successful outing on a snowmobile. North Dakota law requires youth ages 12 and older, who do not have a valid driver’s license or permit, to take a safety certification class. The certification is needed in order to legally operate a snowmobile on any public land which includes the state snowmobile trail system and ditches.
To become certified, the following guidelines must be met:
- Attend a scheduled classroom or hands-on class in your area, or take the online certification course from home.
- Be at least 12 years of age.
- Successfully complete the safety certification test.
You may obtain your certification card by completing the Snowmobile Safety Course online.
