Essay Topic: Partnerships are a must in the snowmobile world!  The more partners we have in our industry, the more successful we will be in every challenge we are faced with.  Cooperative partnerships can be made at a Local, State, Provincial or even at a National level.  It is better to have partners then opponents.

Essay Challenge:  In your own words:

2. Who are some of your current partners of your Association/Federation?
3. How are those partnerships working for your Association/Federation?
4. Can you share with us your thoughts of how and where we can go to find and develop new partnerships to further the cause of snowmobiling? 

Finally, can you share with us your thoughts and ideas of how to financially support our cause for the next generation of snowmobilers?
