    OFSC Online Purchasing for 2018-2019

    Part of the mOTS initiative was for Districts to select names that more aptly described where they were located. This was being done for marketing purposes. District 6 is now called Snow Country Snowmobile Region. District 1 is in the process of formally changing its name to Upper Canada Snowmobile Region. There may be others but I am not sure. From what I have seen, all permits documentation has district 0 on it. This may have been the result of the the OFDSC cancelling the amalgamation of the 16 district into 12 which would have changed what clubs are assigned to what districts. The permit money will go to the district to which the club is assigned. Out would be the District that then funds the club operations.

    Has anybody tried Oracle. They are the insurance partners with OFSC. Supposed to provide discounts for OFSC permit buyers as well as multi line discounts. Not or looking forward to my TD renewal next March.

    Who's attending the OFSC AGM this weekend?

    The AGMis the only time we get to discuss issues as a whole group. I wish more delegates would bring topics forward for discussion

    To ensure you get the topic on the agenda for discussion you need to have it added to the agenda. The first item of the meeting (after confirming the chair) is to confirm the agenda. You can move that TP be added and get someone to second it. I think the floor would be receptive to the topic since it impacts everyone. If the topic is not on the agenda, according to Perry’s rules, you can not ask s question about it.

    Who's attending the OFSC AGM this weekend?

    New Corp bylaws to pass, 2020 Permit Recommendations to MTO on the agenda for tomorrow. Announced yoday day that a new ITG and a new mobile app to be launched shortly. If I understood correctly you will need to purchase the new app ($3-4). No upgrade from /to old app. New cloud based permit system that is supposed to be more reliable and easier to use will launch for permit sales by Oct 1st. All good things but seeing and using is believing.

    X2 on the FXR jacket and pants. I pair mine with UA ColdGear as my base layer for everything except the coldest. Then I would add a light mid layer.

    MOTS deadline September 6/2018

    I would like somebody to prove to me that the OFSC owns the assets. Other than some unsupported statements from Paul S and ExComm what is there to support the claim. I would offer the following as substantiation that the clubs own the assets 1) the OFSC claims ownership of the assets under their agreement with MTO. Every permit selling entity in the federation is party to that same agreement by way of the TPPA agreement. every PSE is required to sign a TPPA every year as part of the membership renewal requirements. The permits were sold in the name of the club and under the agreement with MTO the club gets to keep the sale proceeds. The club then makes expenditures according to schedule of permissible investments (Sch E). Therefore the assets are the clubs, not the OFSC. There is a caveat to that in that if the club ceases operations they must submit an asset disposal plan for approval but it only applies if the club ceases operation. This is what happened when D16 shut down. 2) if the OFSC owns the assets, why have they not been recorded on Federstion Balance Sheets (except for the last 3 years). Their own financial statements do not record any interest in the assets because they have none except in very limited circumstances. 3) if the OFSC owns the assets, how can a club transfer them to the district under MOTS? Why would you need an MOU at all unless you knew your claim was bogus to begin with.

    Wage rates would be a district decision.

    MOTS deadline September 6/2018

    For our district it amounts to an extra $19K or about a 6% increase in total Grooming Expenses. To fund the extra costs the district will have to reduce spending in some other area because revenue does not go up or support the extra with fund raising dollars. Now also consider if as other posters have suggested the volunteer commitment continues to dwindle and the volunteers that currently wrench on the groomers no longer want to do it for free. How much extra is that going cost.
