  • PNWVSC Montana Riding Event

    Posted on 02/23/21 at 01:12 PM

    Hey Vintage Fans,
    Just a quick reminder concerning the snowmobile drag races and vintage show this week Feb 27th at Mountain Meadows Resort @ Lake Mary Ronan (north of Polson & South of Kalispell). GPS coordinates: 47.93339455802705, -114.38698699208405.
     
    This is a very informal event - no entry fees, no classes, no prizes, no trophies.  It's a "run-what- ya-brung" event.  Arrive around noon, with drags starting at 1:00 pm.  The vintage show is also very informal - pretty much just line them up near the bar/grill.  If enough vintage people show up, we can create a vintage-only class if there is interest. 
     
    If you have questions - please call Lyle @ MMR (406) 240-6969.  
     
    Please ping me back if you plan on attending so we have an idea of how many vintage sleds are coming.  
     
    Thanks!
    Tom Mullins

  • Update from PNWVSC Montana

    Posted on 02/03/21 at 10:26 PM

    I got an update from Dave Morgan, who was up at the Garnet area today.  1" of fresh, new snow and the forecast is calling for a 50%-80% chance of snow this week with daytime temps in the low 30's.  LETS RIDE!!    

    Meet and gather in the parking lot around 9:30 - 10:30, with the aim to have all the old iron cranked up and leaving around 10:30-11:00.   Trip is 11 miles from parking lot to Garnet. so 22 miles round trip.  Missoula Snowgoers are sponsoring lunch of Brats & Dogs.  There's a rumor that a mystery man may show up with some Big Sky Brewing adult beverages.  Beer, Brats and vintage snowmobiles - the most fun you can have with a snowmobile suit on....  
     
    Snow is still thin, so off road/cross county is pretty sparse - even on top.  Plan on leaving the big paddle/powder sleds at home.  Bring the old iron that only needs a skiff o' snow and we'll be fine.  
     
    Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
