NLSF – Family Pass Rebate System Created for 2019-20
Here at Sledworthy, we really believe in a strong industry and that does start with a strong Provincial Snowmobile Federation. We wanted to share this news about the 2019-20 Family Pass Rebate System.
This information was source from the NLSF.
This season, a new trail pass system for families with more than one snowmobile will be introduced.
The NLSF has provided family trail pass rates for the past few years. This program is designed to allow families who have multiple snow- mobiles, registered at the samecivic address, a reduced rate for their second and third machines.
The NLSF promotes family participation in organized snowmobiling and fully supports reduced trail pass rates for legitimate families.
Although registration with the NL Dept. of Motor Vehicles is a requirement for all snowmobiles, we have no access to this information for address verification. This allows numerous ways that this benefit can be misused.
This has left the work of address verification with our vendors. We do not believe it is fair to put this level of work on them. Additionally, for our online sales, we have no capability of verifying registered addresses for individuals wishing to purchase trail passes at family pass rates.
The NLSF has experienced a great deal of overall misuse/abuse of this benefit over the last number of years. It is in the best interest of the NLSF and its trail pass holders to limit the ability of those who wish to abuse the system and who are taking away from those who wish to support it. As a solution, we are instating a family trail pass rebate
program similar to what other Atlantic provinces have.
When purchased, all trail passes will be at the full rate, either early bird or regular season. Families can then apply, either by mail photo- copy) or email (scanned), to the NLSF office for their rebate.
This will include the NLSF rebate form, copies of your snowmobile registrations (indicating a common address) and, if purchased through a vendor, a copy of your trail pass application form. Rebate applications will be accepted at the NLSF office from mid-January to the end of April.
All rebates will be mailed out in cheque form. We will try our best to ensure rebates are sent out in a timely fashion.
We thank you for your cooperation and your much-needed support.
