    Throttle back on trail permit fees

    There is no difference between the classic permit and the regional classic permit other than the classic permit will be within one of the regions (which are quite large) If you have a classic sled that you wish to saddle bag across more than your region you will need a full season permint. Logisticaly it would have been impossiable to implement a regional permit for all sled, it brought up to many how do we ?? enforcement, selling etc. Most classic permits (98% or more) are put on sleds that don't really stray far from home.

    Throttle back on trail permit fees

    I don't remember the regional divisions right now but proposed priceing as follows Full season uber early bird (before Nov 1) $180 Early Bird (before Dec 1st) $210 After Dec 1st $280 Regional Classic Permit $140 Remember these are only proposed prices, has to be OK'd by MTO first. The only regional permet next year will be in the classic form.

    Throttle back on trail permit fees

    I was just offer up a way to see the inside of the system, I was judging by the tone that he/she was not involved in any way. Many, many, many like to offer up opinions/ideas with no idea how the system works. I have been involved in the "system" for 25 yrs. I've seen many things work and even more that don't

    This already exists and has for a number of years. Get invloved in your local club and find out just how it works !!!. Other factors New groomer costs $200 k + Average life of a groomer 5 to 8 years Fuel 128.9/l for desiel right now ($4.87 a us gallon) might get a little better price on non road tax stuff Last year the OFSC had a fund strictly for groomer replacement, 1 milion, how many groomer does that buy, maybe 5 Out of 200+ clubs I would say there is 800-900 groomers, thats a lot to try and replace in a timly manor.
