The Last Resort 2017
Posted 03/15/17 at 09:28 PM
The club show and ride at The Last Resort in Ronald WA is on the books. We had 2 days of good snow, good eats, and of course, vintage sleds. We even recruited some new members!
Kevin Hancock took the 1st place peoples choice award this year with his very clean Sno Pony
The club's handsome SkiDaddler (also restored by Kevin) nabbed 2nd place. Everyone loves a Daddler!
Kevin also couldn't help himself and pitted the SnoPony against a young visitor's Kitty Cat... We still don't know who won.

A ride to Whistlin' Jack
Posted 02/20/17 at 11:05 PM
6 of us hardy vintage snowmobilers got together on Feb 12th for a cross country ride from Taneum Sno Park to the Whistlin' Jack Lodge in Naches. The plan was to ride 70 miles to WJL, spend the night, and ride back the next day. It was a real treat to see Kevin's Skiroule RT-500 and Paul's big Cats ready for this adventure!
It was a long ride both days that gave us spectacular views, great trails, and even a few elk sightings!

A Vintage Day at Byrd's
Posted 01/19/17 at 10:20 PM
The club had a great vintage day at Greg Byrd's place, complete with a roaring campfire and a hot grill for hamburgers and hotdogs. We spent the day riding, trading stories and sleds, and enacting the occasional fix when required. Over 28 vintage sleds were present for the event, and all even ran at some point! A big thanks to Greg and Becki for hosting us, we are looking forward to this event next year.

Clear Lake BBQ
Posted 02/16/16 at 10:07 AM
The club had a great time at Clear Lake Sno Park despite some mechanical issues. Some really old iron made a showing with rear engine 4 cycle machines chugging down the trail! Once the BBQ was fired up everyone ate their share and had full bellies for the trip back. We are having some technical difficulties with the pics so the best way to enjoy them is via the slideshow link below.
See you on the snow at The Last Resort! (Feb 27-28th)

Well folks, despite a winter plagued with poor snow conditions and rainy days we did manage to get some good riding in at the Last Resort this year. Trail conditions were smooth and well groomed (well most of them at least!). A good sized group participated in this ride with a wide variety of sleds. Good times were had by all!
