  • New Past Event - East Wenatchee Wings & Wheels 10-2018

    Posted on 10/08/18 at 08:16 AM

    What a GREAT two day event!  This was our first time at this show.  The weather cooperated, and we had a very good spot for our display.  As folks meandered through the car show they stopped to take pictures, and admire our sleds.  We were well received with a lot of stories told and retold of when they rode their first snowmobile, and if one in our display was the same year and make.  

    We asked folks walking through to vote for their favorite sleds.  We used their votes for the 1st and 2nd place winners of the People's Choice awards.  For this show the trophies were presented by the organizers of the East Wenatchee Wings & Wheels at the same time they announced the show car winners.  Kevin Hancock won 1st place with his restored 1969 Mercury 220E.  Dick Feil took second with another beautifully restored Arctic Cat pusher sled; a 1966 Arctic Cat 460D. 

    The next day some of us went to watch the hydroplanes display at the annual Lake Chelan Mahogany and Merlot event.  There were some big names there like Miss Pay-N-Pack with their HUGE WWII vintage V12 Allison airplane motors roaring around the track.  Because they were not racing you could go out on one of the big Allison boats!  Now how cool is that!  Leading up to the big boats were several classes the put on a fine show for the crowd.

    Click the picture to go to the club’s Google Photos site to see the show and hydroplanes:

    REMEMBER  the weekend of October 20 and 21 in Puyallup, WA is our final show for this summer season.  This is our 19th year showing at the Washington State Snowmobile Association’s Snowmobile & Power Sports Expo & Swap Meet.  We will be there displaying our sleds and memorabilia. 

    If you want to be part of the fun contact Ray Bergstresser: time4snow@comcast.net; (509) 993-7107.

  • WSSA Expo Volunteers Needed

    Posted on 09/12/18 at 08:58 PM

    Ray Bergstresser received this announcement from the Washington State Snowmobile Association (WSSA) Expo and Volunteer Coordinator.  Let Ray know if you are interested volunteering.  It would be money for the club: time4snow@comcast.net.

    Attention Club Presidents,

    It’s that time of year again when we start thinking about snow. But before we can get on the snow we need to get to the EXPO on October 20th and 21st and enjoy all the wonderful new toys and gear that is available for the new season. One of the most important things at the show is all the wonderful volunteers that we have every year. And, yes, with the volunteers from your club comes income to help host all the events that you have planned for the upcoming season.  When one of your members volunteers, he/she earns $8.00 per hour for your club. What a great way to see the show, be part of the EXPO, and help your club all at the same time. So get the word out to your members that I am looking for some help again this year. Your Club dues must be current in order to have members participate.

    Just a reminder that by volunteering for a minimum of two (2) two-hour shifts (totaling 4 hours or more), a volunteer will receive free entrance to Expo for the entire weekend.  Each two-hour shift may be worked on separate days.  In order to improve efficiencies, this year’s volunteers working 4 or more hours will be given a wrist band upon check-in.  Please note: you are not eligible for door prize drawings unless you purchase an entrance ticket and place it into the drawing bucket.

    Attached is Volunteer Information and sign-up sheets for any club
    member interested in helping make the 2018 Expo another outstanding success in support of our sport.  If you would like a copy of the sign-up sheet as an Excel spreadsheet so you can fill it out and email it back, please email me at snowexpovolunteer@gmail.com or visit the WSSA website to download it. 

    Please return the sign-up sheets to me either by fax at 1-253-922-9551 or
    email at snowexpovolunteer@gmail.com by October 5th.  If you have any questions, please call/text me at (253) 380-4906 or email me at the above address.

    Thanks
    Mike Eveler
    WSSA Expo Volunteer Coordinator

  • Ordering Club Clothing

    Posted on 09/01/18 at 04:05 PM

    For years the club has sold hats and shirts with our logo. Our stock is running low, so it is time to reorder. But it is hard deciding what to have on hand because of our different tastes and styles. So we decided to do things differently, and let our members order directly from a supplier.
    The embroidery and clothing retailer we decided to use is called Tags Awards and Specialties in Olympia (360) 491-2525. They have a large assortment of clothes, and accessories. They already have the club’s logo digitized so all you need to do is request it be embroiled on your item.

     There are two ways to find what you want:

    • During our events we will have a copy of their catalog to page through, with order forms.  Once you decide all you have to do is call in your order.  They will give you an estimate, take your payment, and send you your stuff. 
      • If you order embroidering they discount the clothing item. 
      • The snowmobile in the logo was set up as yellow.  Ask them if you can change the color when ordering to match your sleds. 
    • If you don't want to wait for the next event you can go to their clothing supplier (Sanmar) website: www. https://www.sanmar.com/ and find what you want.  Then you call in your order to Tags.  

    It is that easy.  Because there is such a huge selection to choose from the hardest part will be trying to decide what to get.

    If you have questions you can either call Tags in Olympia directly, or email me Kevin Hancock: kevcho357@gmail.com.

    We have set a date for our First Ridding Event of the 2019 Season!  This has become an annual event.  Depending on snow we will meet either at Greg Byrd's property, or Tim Halvorson's.  Last year it was at Tim's.  It was a great day.  Weather, and snow cooperated for a wonderful time.

    We will have our barbeque there again.  The club will be buying our lunch! 

    This year's grudge match between Stephen Phillip's new aqusition; a 1968 Ski-doo Alpine with the 370 cc double, and the 1968 Ski-Daddler Wide Track 22 is called off.  The Ski Daddler is going to its new home with Candy Johnson and Paul Kruger in Montana.  

      

    Keep an eye open for updates as the time drawn nearer.  Let Ray Bergstresser know if you are planning to attend: time4snow@comcast.net; (509) 466-6249.

  • New Upcoming Event - Lolo Winterfest 2019

    Posted on 07/31/18 at 07:41 PM

    A group of us were discussing going to the Lolo Winterfest (Montana) next January, 2019. 

    Now that the dates were announced we are firming up our plans:

    - On Saturday January 19, 2019 they will have a fun day, and vintage snowmobile show and several fun events,

    - Sunday the 20th there will be a 16-mile vintage snowmobile ride.  The picture has a link that announcement for the Winterfest 2018 event.  It describes what we can expect for this years event:

       

    We have room reservations at the Lolo Hot Springs Lodge.  This is where the event is being

    held last year, and there are natural HOT SPRINGS to soak in!  cool  There are still rooms available. 

    But move fst now that the dates are announced they could go fast:

    Finally some of us are thinking of staying longer to enjoy the local trail system and play areas with

    our modern, also known as 'Nice Sleds".  There are snowmobile rentals for you die-hard vintage

    snowmobile riders who need a modern ride.  It is a trail and play area, so a later machine can keep up

    the trails are also welcome:

    If you have questions our Honorable President Ray Bergstresser time4snow@comcast.net; (509) 489-6423.
