Polaris Industries recently announced an exciting new â€œWinning Ridersâ€ program. The sport of Snowmobiling is built by thousands of clubs and volunteers who give countless thousands of man hours to develop, maintain and groom the over 225,000 miles of trails in North America. Most of the trails and riding areas snowmobilers enjoy today exist because of volunteers. The â€œWinning Ridersâ€ program is designed to recognize and say â€œthank youâ€ to the state and provincial associations and their clubs and volunteers.
The â€œWinning Ridersâ€ program will provide a cash donation to North American States and Provinces for every new Polaris snowmobile sold from September 1, 2005 until March 31, 2006. Checks will be distributed on or before November 1, 2006. Eric Lindquist, Snowmobile Division General Manager said â€œWe want to give back to the grassroots level, and the â€œWinning Ridersâ€ program is one way to do so.â€
In addition to a cash donation to the states and provinces, which can be used for any purpose they choose, Polaris will also be mailing a thank you letter to every new Polaris snowmobile purchaser. The letter will thank them for their purchase and will also tell them about the donation, by Polaris, on their behalf. It will also inform them of all the initiatives the association and local clubs to do ensure smooth trails and deep powder access plus encourage them to join their local club and/or association if they are not already a member by directing them to the Polaris website at www.polarisindustries.com/WinningRiders where they can learn more about their state or provincial association. All the necessary information to contact and join the association will be displayed. The web site encourages membership and involvement for riders that are not currently members.
Polaris will further support the â€œWinning Ridersâ€ program by placing ads in many state and provincial association publications from October, 2005 through March, 2006. The ad Features a gloved hand with a big â€œthumbs up,â€ and is entitled â€œSweet Trails. Fresh Powder. And The Clubs Who Make It All Possible.â€
