Took my Daughter to a safety class and she is now ready to give it a ride. (soon as snow returns) 45 kids/couple parents attended class. All passed. Did learn a couple things. For you boaters, the DNR did mention that all boaters will soon need to take a safety class and have there cert. on them. There is no age limit. The Illinois sled registration will be going up, and will go up in a 2 stage increment. Did not mention when this will happen. But in the near future. The IASC is running out of money compared to their output. He also mentioned that along with ALL the boaters needing to take safety class for all ages, expect that the sledders will be next to require this. Do keep in mind that none of this is in affect as of right now. Thanks to the Rusty Runners Snowmobile Club for putting on a great class. If anybody under the age of 16 hasn't taken one, i recommend that you take. Well worth it and it is required. Could save someone some $$$$ if ever stopped. Keep in mind this pertains to the state of Illinois.
RIDE SAFE BE SAFE!
Expect the Unexpected!
