  2. I do think, like with all forums, we had a small tight knit group from the beginning, until FB hit the internet. then the internet became a who's who, of big business buying popular forums, interjecting their ads, views, policing etc... this made members of the "family forum", leave looking for the same thing they just lost. and on FB, there were hundreds of small groups, just like ours. the beginning of the end for individual owned forums. (there are very few left). FB started off great, and the idea was solid... contacting and interacting with friends, family, old and new. and th

  5. Propagation of untruths is one of the biggest effects of internet usage. The advice of a person who spends a lifetime being trained and developing expertise in a given field, is now considered equal to the advice of any wing nut with an internet connection. Now everybody is an expert on everything.

  6. Truly amazing that the only time people had trouble with the forum was when people posted opposing viewpoints. Think about that! What will work is if you keep any politics or religion to off topic and leave it there. If we go to 100% censorship I for one will be out of here. Here is a formula that works, #1 - you dont like what someone is saying, either debate it or stop reading and move on. #2- see #1

  7. In my opinion the forum was for fellow sledders to voice and share their sledding experiences. Invite others and make new friends, this has always been my approach on this forum. It pains to me think that LMV has to lurk to watch for people that wish to take away from this ideal of ours. I used to come here excited. Now it is a shit show of conspiracy, government secrets and created such a division it sickens me. I raise this challenge. Keep the crap to your friends and family, bring this forum back to what it was. A family of sledders. We, yes we get the decision to do so. I have

  10. I hope with a normal sledding season comes what some of us remember as normalcy here on the forum. I have no clue what is going on here and don't much care, I just know it has changed since the early 2000's. I still lurk because I am interested........seems the forum has gone the same direction the sledding has, lol. Maybe it is forum evolution, LMFAO.

  11. Letting it become like the other sites that allow the disrespect to others continue or sometimes encouraged, is not what this place is or has become for the most part......yes, a few got irritated toward others because some did not share your POV (right or wrong), but I think that has passed. An opinion is just that, an opinion, that you have a choice to share and then a choice to read and than a choice to comment on.......see the theme - choice. There is a place for these opinions and a place not for them. This site has also been known to have some people that get their

  12. This is what we did this year. The local Home Hardware added $10 each on top of what we paid which is awesome. What did your club do? Any creative ideas? Anything landowners loved in the past?

  13. What a load of crap. Nothing wrong with the doo throttles. They work great. Can actually still feel my thumb after a 500 km day. As stated wear your tether. It's there for a reason.

  14. Thank you Eric for the very wise words. I'm trying to bring the forum back to the friendly and interesting place it always was. I hear people saying OC forum should be only about snowmobiling and nothing more. It's always been more than justa snowmobiling forum. Countless friendships have been born here and I always wanted it to be fun place for friends to hangout. But language like "hey LMV, you're boring, stupid and a waste of time", "you're an idiot", "you're stupid" are just a few examples of unexceptable conduct and will not be tolerated anymore. We still have a

  15. Or stay out of the off topic area and enjoy the sledding area. I cannot understand why people try to control speech on a forum when instead all they have to do is not read it. However once c36 passes these types of discussions may be outlawed and we can all be arrested for participating, so in the end you may get what you want. Vote liberal.

  16. Ya landowner gifts have been an interesting topic. There was talk along time ago that maybe the landowners could get a tax credit from the province not sure if they were thinking on the income tax side or property tax side since that is the municipality. It never happened. But my point sorta is that would it be possible that every land owner in the province gets the same gift ? Like those gloves. I know every club has different ideas and they probably work for them but I do hope that every landowner is visited every year and something can be given to them

  17. Thanks for the feedback guys!! Much appreciated!! I moved this thread back to the main clubhouse for more people to see and more input from forum members. It really helps us steer the forum in the right direction again. Our original system work very well and was always improving. I'm sure we can do it again. This forum will never become a HCS... Politics and religion is never a good combination anywhere online or off..

  18. Ageed. Its very obvious that some of the usual year around posting members are MIA. We need to get back to the fun forum we had where sleds, jokes and fun things are the main topic of posts before OC ends up like HCS. I've made my lists of things to get done on the sleds and started to accumulate some of the items needed to complete the lists. Summer toys are getting the bulk of alotted time at present.

  19. that is probably the most wrong way to buy fuel. mid grade is probably the least purchased fuel out there. most people are too cheap to buy more than the cheapest. those that need premium for performance autos, lawn equipment etc... know the value of premium fuel and buy that. mid grade just sits. the thought is for a few pennies more, I can buy premium, or I save this much buying regular. your results may vary. there are lots of premium fueled toys in Dubreuilville. fuel will be ordered and delivered as use dictates. they dont completely fill the tanks and wait for it to drain dry

  20. Clubs could do some sort of fund raiser (raffle etc) to raise money for the Land Owners. A Land Owners Appreciation Raffle comes to mind. We raised tons of money through our hockey teams like that. Just a thought.

  21. So I found an 2021 Enduro 900 ACE, New Non-current. Shocker!! 1 sled (2012 GSX SE) left to sell. The others have gone before I was able to post them.

  22. From when I filled it my application a couple of years ago, you are really just telling them about yourself, sharing the social media sites you belong to and your passion for the sport and Polaris of course. I have met several of the Ambassadors and they are all great people with strong ties to the brand. I see other another OEM has followed suit. If you think about the brand ambassador idea is a marketing genius having people at the grassroots level promoting the brand, whether it is sleds, powersports, clothing, etc.

  25. Ellice Swampers would do a pork chop BBQ on the same weekend as there poker run. All landowners were eligible for a couple of free tickets, and tickets were also available to the general public to purchase. The dinner was both a fundraiser, and thank you at the same time.

  31. I usually fill up the truck and then the small engine gas cans. That usually gets all the regular gas out of the pump and hoses although they really aren’t pumps. They are metering stations. For the dollar or so that I leave on the table because there is still some premium in the hose and metering station, I can’t be bothered by the nickels and dimes for the wasted time required to capture it all.

  35. Sorry to hear about the accidents. Mrs Iq turbo has a 2018 Blizzard 900 ace, and has no issues. Muffs, no muffs, cruising, keeping up with her 850 hubby etc.... Not being mean, but im thinking operator error. Kinda like smoking, then blaming the cigarette for death. Or drinking and driving and blaming the alcohol...
