FCMQ's 33rd annual convention

Recommended Posts

Quebec City, September 10, 2007 – More than 400 representatives of clubs from across the province belonging to the Quebec Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (FCMQ) will be meeting at the Château Mont-Ste-Anne in Beaupré on September 13, 14 and 15. The theme of this year’s convention is Opération 100 000…moi j’embarque! The presidents and directors of snowmobile clubs will explore solutions that will ensure the development and continued practice of snowmobiling in Quebec’s regions.

Participants will be able to attend workshops on the clubs’ various activities, management of the trail network, and the media and communications. The Quebec Ministry of Transport and the Sureté du Québec will present a joint workshop on the new laws that come into effect this season, as well as the presence of SQ agents on the trails.

“We would like to take the opportunity of this meeting to review our methods for managing club members. It is imperative that volunteers get involved so we can better control access to our trails. This improvement is necessary to ensuring that snowmobilers can enjoy this exciting activity safely and under optimal conditions,” said Jean-Luc Sylvain, FCMQ president and a native of the region that is hosting this year’s convention.

The FCMQ is a great group of people that do so much for snowmobiling in Quebec. With out them we wouldn't be able to what we enjoy in their country. I got to meet quite a few of the VPs from the various regions last winter as they had a ride in the area and stayed at the HI in Jonquiere. I was amazed at how many came up to me at the HCS booth and introduced themselves to me. They knew about HCS. This year QuebecRider.com is a link on their web site so if they should be in the area and stay at the HI they will surely know about this great site. Kudos to Rob another guy who does so much for this sport.
