  • In Memoriam......

    Posted on 02/08/18 at 06:32 PM

    A sad day. Our good friend and founder of the Pacific Northwest Vintage Snowmobile Club Arthur Bonenfant passed away this week in Portland, Oregon.  Arthur had the best collection of Arctic Cat race sleds in the west.  He was always ready to lend a hand at our shows, had a big wonderful smile, great stories, and was always ready and easy to make laugh.  He will be missed. A memorial service will be held on the 17th, details below.

    Posted on 02/03/18 at 10:12 AM

    Tim invited the club up to his place on Badger Mountain for a vintage ride and BBQ. A herd of vintage iron showed up, everything from Fox Trac's to El Tigre's. 

     

    We even had a running Foremost in the group!

    And a Merc!

     

    With Dick cooking up the burgers the crew was fed in no time.

    A big thanks from the PNWVSC to Tim for hosting our ride!!!

    The 2017 WSSA Expo is in the books! We had a big crowd this year, and in spite of the weather the swap meet was full of great deals.
