Default Webpage Revamp - What would YOU like

We are planning on doing an update to the entire webpage in January, depending on the cost.
What I would like to know is what do YOU - the people who frequent the site want to see.
What is is that you like, what is it that you dislike.
What would you like to see more of?
What do you want done differently?

Help us make this the best sledding site on the net!

Don't be shy, and don't hold back, I wanna hear everything you got.

Some items I'd like to see:

1. Links to weather forecasts/ snowcover maps, etc. These could also be on the top of the forum index, too.

2. List of upcoming events (poker runs, winter carnival, brushing, etc)

3. Links to other Michigan snowmobiling websites. (fishweb, johndee, other clubs, mfg websites, etc).

4. Info on how the trail permit money is spent, maybe a link to DNR website showing disbursements for previous season(s).

5. A list of local businesses that support teh club. Also a list of current club members.

6. Webcam in St. Ignace to see current conditions.

7. Some nice pics of our grooming/trail maintenance equipment. Could also put up some videos of our equipment in action.

Thumbs down Re: Webpage Revamp - What would YOU like

Here is my 2 cents.

I do not really like change.

This site is just fine the way it is.

Save the money for a rainy day , because it will rain.

Its all good the way it is.

Here's my 2cents.....
For the must part keep it like it is, but add a few things.....

1. A list of local businesses that support the club. We must support the one's that support the club and us as sledders.

2.List of upcoming events .

3. A link to the cams in the area.

Don't hold back you say.

4. Free beer ? after the riding is done.
Timmy Lee is buying.

Well I agree with alot of things that have already been posted.

1. First and foremost I would love to see the places that support the club listed. I just can't understand not staying at one of those hotels. I have seen 1st hand how much work, Jimmy, Dave, Jim (just to mention a few hotel owners) do for the upkeep of these trails. These guys deserve front page sponsorship for the time they put in making our trails the smoothest and safest around.

2. A list of up coming events.

Overall the page and forum is great. There is rarely a time someone can't come on and get an answer to anything going on in the area.

Where is the Woodland motor Lodge in St. Ignace? 2nd of all I never seen anyone from that place out in the woods brushing and signing with us in the fall. I can give you the names of 3 hotels there that the owners were there working all day multiple weekends? Don't you think you should support them with a few bucks for their effort?

I think you better compare their prices for sled rentals to those of other places, especially St. Ignace. I think Woodland prices for sleds are high. $225.00 per day. The free room is only Sunday thru Thur. 10% off room rate on weekends.

Neil,
Would it be possible to create a PDF version of our clubs trails? One that you could click on and open in a separate window. If that could be done I would like to see it made with the names of the local roads on it. Lot's of times people on here are talking about certain sections of the trail by name and a lot of people do not know where they are. If we could do that we could also put any local sponsors on it that are involved with the website. If area riders knew who the sponsors were and where they were located, they might be more inclined to frequent them.
Having a little history in the printing business, I would be happy to try and help create one.

Wink
