  • New Past Event - Central Washington Agricultural Museum

    Posted on 08/27/23 at 07:54 PM

    The weekend of August 19 – 20 we had our third annual antique, vintage, and classic snowmobile show at the Central Washington Agricultural Museum in Union Gap, Washington.  It was not too hot, but with the forest fires nearby made it a bit smoky. There were 17 antique, vintage, and classic sleds at the show. As has become our custom we asked folks enjoying the display to vote for their favorite sleds. Dick Feil was voted 1st Place People’s Choice for his 1966 Arctic Cat 460D, while 2nd place People’s Choice was awarded for Ed Buckner’s 1968 Shrew motor cycle conversion kit. Congratulations you guys.

    We received a letter from the Washington State Snowmobile Association (WSSA) who announced they decided to cancel the 2023 Washington State Snowmobile and Power Sports Expo and Swap Meet scheduled for October 20th and 21st at the fairgrounds in Puyallup.

    It was a difficult decision by the board, but they don’t believe we can hold a quality event for our members and local area snowmobilers due to a lack of participation by the snowmobile manufacturers and several of their longtime exhibitors.

    WSSA extends a heartfelt thanks to ALL the volunteers who have donated countless hours putting on this event over a 30 year period.  WSSA thanks all of our past exhibitors, and of course, all of you, for supporting our show for the last three decades.

    We also want to announce one of our newest members Chance Reid from Oregon. He's 15, and has about 40 sleds. He and his dad already are serious vintage snowmobile collectors. Welcome to the club Chance!

  • New Past Event - All Wheels Weekend

    Posted on 06/25/23 at 04:34 PM

    It was a wonderful day at the Dayton, Washington All Wheels Weekend. This was our second annual antique, vintage, and classic snowmobile show at this great event.

    On Saturday we had a good show with 17 snowmobiles in the display. There were a lot of people walking by and talking to us. While they were enjoying the display we asked they vote for their favorite sled. We used the votes to select the winner for a People’s Choice award. We received a great reply with almost 100 votes cast for the award!

    The first place winner was Dick Feil for his wonderfully restored and running 1966 Arctic Cat 460D pusher sled, but coming in a close second was Lisa, from Milton-Freewater for  her Arctic Cat Kitty-cat. Dick and Lisa had several more of fully restored and running early model antique and vintage snowmobiles. Congratulations Dick and Lisa!

    Tim & son Dustin, Lisa & Ron, Dick & Delores, The Ruchert's, Loye, and Ray, were all there.  We had fair to good weather, no Rain, some wind. There were over 350 cars this year at the show, which is up from last years. 

    Our next event is the weekend of August 19, 2023 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!

  • New Past Event - Whistlin' Jack Lodge Riding Event

    Posted on 02/05/23 at 07:58 PM

    We had another successful riding event from the Taneum Sno-Park to Whistlin’ Jack Lodge. This year three of the riders opted for their best modern sleds, and two were on somewhat older machines. The weather was awesome, but cold. It was a brisk 9? at the lodge the next morning when leaving the lodge. 

    The trail was cold, and icy much of the way which kind of made the mountain sleds a challenge to keep on the roads, and also prevent them from overheating. They found themselves doing a lot more off road playing since we had that capability, and needed to get into the fluff as much as possible.

    Stephen and Paul found some nice new play areas along the way, and a new scenic lunch spot that they did not know existed. During the rough sections of the trail, three of them were happy to have the nice suspension and seats of the newer sleds. The other two guys took a bit of a beating. As they found in past years, there was no grooming in rough middle section of the trail. Also, this year, the section of the trail from the “horse camp” to the top of the hill was also whooped out. This, combined with the middle section, made for a lot of whoops in both directions.

    On the way back to the sno-park they took a different route after the “horse camp”, which ran along the Walter Spring road. It was a nice change which added to the fun. Along the way they were checking to see if the directional signs the club put out that are used to guide riders from the sno-park to the lodge were still there, and not damaged. It is a good year for the signs. Only one was missing with no damage.
