MnUSA nEWS Join the Sno-Barons Club Raffle The Sno-Barons snowmobile club will offer its “no-risk raffle ticket sales drive” as a fundraiser for MnUSA clubs and other organizations. This year, the sleds offered in the raffle are an Arctic Cat 2016 ZR 6000 El Tigré, a Polaris 2016 800 Indy SP, a Ski-Doo 2016 MX Z Sport 600 Carb, and a Yamaha 2016 Phazer RTX. The drawing will take place at Haydays. The raffle is designed to benefit clubs: clubs sell the tickets and receive 85 percent of their sales back. It is an opportunity for club members to earn money for their club or association without bearing the cost and risk of obtaining the prizes. The only cost to the club is 15% of the total ticket sales proceeds (plus postage, if that is involved). The Sno-Barons have the tickets for the raffle printed and ready to go. Clubs interested in selling tickets should contact Keri Seviola at 612-916-6816 or e-mail raffle@snobarons.com to obtain tickets. Tickets sell for $1 per chance. Ticket sales can continue until the last week of August. Any unsold tickets and sales proceeds (check, cashier’s check or money order only) should be returned to Seviola on or before August 31. Approximately six weeks after the race, the Sno-Barons will send the participating organizations a check minus the 15 percent and the postage cost if involved. Snowmobile clubs participating in this fundraiser must have 100% membership belonging to MnUSA. Organizations that are not a snowmobile club must join MnUSA as an associate member and the $50 membership fee will be deducted from the sales. 10 Minnesota Snowmobiling
