STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - Poor snow conditions has led officials to cancel a fundraiser in New Hampshire for a snowmobile club that draws thousands of people to test ride snow machines.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/1RJFKPj ) the Swift Diamond Riders Snowmobile Club and event organizer South End Media made the announcement Monday. The event, held at Coleman State Park, was scheduled for March 4-5.

South End Media representative Kurt Muhfelder says the trails need at least 2 feet of snow for safe riding. But it’s only covered by 4 to 5 inches. He says part of the event also takes place on a pond that doesn’t have the required 3 feet of ice.

Tim Anderson, club president, says it was the first time since SnoDeo started in 1993 that it has been canceled.
