Vintage/Antique Registration Updates! Good News!
« on: November 09, 2015, 07:49:05 PM »
There is some good news to share today! We're happy to say that AB434 passed the Assembly last Tuesday (93-0). It did go onto the Senate and it did pass late on Friday afternoon (32-0). What does this mean for you as a snowmobiler? Read on......

As most of you know, the new registration system for snowmobiles in WI went into effect on July 1, 2015, requiring all sleds to be registered and to display an additional Trail Pass. Discounted trail passes available to those who belong to clubs and the AWSC.

There were also some new regulations regarding sleds that are 35 years and older (vintage-antique) that went into effect. As time moved on and the new system began working, there were some questions and concerns regarding all of this. This bill was introduced as a "clean up bill' an will help make the new system work even better. What this means is:

1) It eliminates the need for antique snowmobiles (35 years and older) to display a trail pass.....NO Trail Pass required on sleds 35 years and older.

2) It allows a dealer to put a trail pass with the dealer plate and move it from sled to sled, without having to put a trail pass sticker on the windshield.

3) It allows for operating a snowmobile with a temporary receipt until the trail pass stickers arrive in the mail. ***THIS WILL ONLY APPLY TO THE $30 TRAIL PASSES SOLD BY THE DNR. IT WILL NOT APPLY TO THE $10 DISCOUNTED TRAIL PASS SOLD TO CLUB MEMBERS THROUGH THE AWSC***

4) It will allow non-residents to register their snowmobiles (35 years and older) as antiques. The same as a resident of Wisconsin.

So....There you have it! Many thanks to the people who worked to get this bill written up and into the system so it could be voted on. As you can see by the vote count, the lawmakers didn't seem to have much problem with it. If you need more info, please check the AWSC web site or contact Marinette County AWSC Director Jeff at jschwaller50@gmail.com or Marinette County AWSC Rep, Patti at vintagepats@yahoo.com or send us a Face Book message or post your question on the page. We'll try to help and maybe we'll all learn something in the process.

Jeff has been a huge support  :cheer: to all Vintage enthusiasts on  the legislation that has been passed. His leadership has helped to correct some things and improve some things for us all. The fact that he has become a well respected leader  :rocker: as a AWSC Director has helped most other Directors understand and agree with what Jeff proposes to help all us Vintage enthusiasts. Here is a big  :thankyou: to Jeff.

Those of you with ANTIQUE registered sleds should be getting one of these in the mail from the DNR, if you haven't already.
