    I have a firm commitment from Mountain Meadows for "Winter Bash" Feb 26 & 27.
    Still need to reach out to Bootlegger for Lincoln events on Sunday.
    Clearly schedules may be affected by the new round of Covid.

  • New Past Event - WSSA Expo and Swap Meet

    Posted on 10/19/21 at 05:46 PM

    What a great and busy weekend it was at the Washington State Snowmobile Association (WSSA) Snowmobile & Power Sports Expo/Swap Meet! This was our 22nd year. The time went by fast. We had our display up and running well before it was time for the gates to open. The best part of the Expo was that you stopped to see our old machines, and swap riding stories when they were the hottest and newest sleds on the trails.

    First a-special thanks goes to all those who voted for our first and second place People’s Choice Award, and Homeliest Snowmobile. Without you the awards are not possible. This year you decided first place winner for Best of Show was Dick Feil for his beautifully restored 1965 Polaris Sno Traveler Voyager. Coming in a second was Ray Bergstresser with his 1972 Sno*Jet 440 Thunder Jet. These sleds were skillfully restored.  Then there was the winner for the Homeliest Snowmobile. You decided Kevin Hancock won the trophy for his 1970 Wheel Horse Safari 309. Thanks to everyone that voted to settle the contest of the best and homeliest sleds for this year’s shows.

  • New Past Event - Cool Desert Nights 10-2021

    Posted on 10/06/21 at 01:38 PM

    It is hard to believe, but this was our 10th showing at the Cool Desert Nights car show.  This year the show was postponed because of the pandemic. But there was a good showing. As in the years past we had several folks who walked through our display telling us it is one of the reasons why they come to the show.  This year we heard it said even more.  And I have to admit it was a good display.  We had a nice mix of antique restored, vintage original, vintage race, vintage restored, and even a non-vintage snowmobile on display.  To make the day even better the weather was perfect; warm, and sunny all day.

  • Cool Desert Nights Show

    Posted on 09/19/21 at 06:01 PM

    Cool Desert Nights is coming up on October 2nd and we will be there showing old sleds and having a good time! The West Richland Chamber of Commerce is doing things a little different this year so we will be entering the Uptown Mall parking lot via the "Vendor Entrance" on the attached map. WRCC volunteers will direct us to the sled show area. It may be where we have shown sleds before but the layout has not been fully decided. I will send that info when I get it. For now, just plan to come in through the Vendor Entrance and go where they tell you to. 
     
    Setup starts on Saturday morning at 6am and we need to be unloaded and done by 8am. Unloading on Friday is not possible since the parking lot will not be cleared of vehicles yet. Show cost is $20 for all the sleds you can bring. Load up as many as you can and join us at a great car show!
     
    If you have any questions, please email me.

  • New Past Event - Central Washington Agricultural Museum

    Posted on 08/24/21 at 07:39 PM

    The weekend of August 21 – 22 we had our first annual vintage and antique show at the Central Washington Agricultural Museum in Union Gap, WA.  The museum is known for its displays of antique farm machinery. The weekend also had tractor and draft-horse pulling contests, a couple antique tractor parades, a grain mowing and thrashing display, antique cars and modifications, mixed in with food vendors, and a swap meet. There also were active vintage apple processing and working Black Smith shop displays. There was a lot going on to see both days.  

    We had a perfect spot for our show. It was in a shady grassy area at the entrance where most of the displays, and vendor had set up. Our antique and vintage sleds were spread for the public to come up for viewing. As people drifted through they walked through they shared their memories, and stories. That is always the best part of having these shows. Seeing the smiles and sharing old memories from the public.

    The members who participated agreed to show again next year. Some of us have started planning bringing sleds that they car ride in the parades. This is a wonderful midsummer event we encourage all of our members will join.

  • New Past Event - Campout at the Entiat River

    Posted on 08/03/21 at 02:52 PM

    Our club met along the Entiat River in Washington for a weekend of camping. Those who attended had a great time eating great food, visiting and catching up. There also were discussions on future shows and events. Besides some great food, they spent time wading and swimming in a spring that boarders the property. Then on the following day three went on a beautiful hike up the Entiat River starting from the Cottonwood Campground.
    If you missed this event, there are more opportunities this summer and fall. Our next event is the weekend of August 21 at the Central Washington Agricultural Museum in Yakima, WA. More information is on our website: http://pnwvsc.org/, or facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pnwvsc/. Hope to see you there!
