    Homely [ hohm-lee ] adjective, home·li·er, home·li·est.

    • lacking in physical attractiveness; not beautiful; unattractive:

    ‘a homely snowmobile, or child’.

    ‘Now, ain’t that different’.

    If you want to show one of your sleds you will get a free weekend pass to the Expo.  Please let Kevin Hancock at pnwvsc@gmail.com know so he can expect you.  We start setting up at noon on Friday the October 19 until 6:00 p.m.  If you cannot make it on Friday, the gate opens at 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

  • New Past Event - Wings & Wheels 2019 Show

    Posted on 10/07/19 at 10:39 AM

    This was our second time at this show.  What a GREAT two day event!  The weather was perfect both days.  We were at a different spot than last year, but it was still a good area 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 which ones.  We were also several times how much people loved seeing our display

    The Wings & Wheels sponsors asked the public to vote for their favorite snowmobile.  The show handed out a plaque to the sled that received the most votes.  And the winner was Dick Feil for his beautifully restored 1966 Arctic Cat 560D.  Not only that, but there were door prizes.  Kevin Hancock won a couple free meals at a local restaurant when the number was pulled for his 1972 Moto Ski.  

    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.

  • Wings & Wheels Event

    Posted on 09/22/19 at 07:38 AM

    Just a quick reminder, we have a sled show coming up on October 5th at the Wings & Wheels Festival Car Show held in East Wenatchee.  This is a great show that we've been supporting for the past couple of years and its lots of fun!  Come on out with your families & favorite vintage sleds and spend the day with us.  Dick is also hosting a BBQ at his house after the show, details will be provided day of.

    There is a change from last year.  This year the Wings & Wheels committee is running the event not as our club being the participant, but each of us as individuals; just like they do with the car entries.  Dick negotiated an idividual entry fee of $25 for two sleds, then an $10 for any two additional sleds after that.  You can either register when you arrive in the morning, or pre-register.  To pre-register and get more information click on the image.

    The show is at the Eastmont Park 4Plex, and setup starts at 8am.   Look for our club’s banner in the set up area.  If you plan to attend, let Dick know via email (dick@bobfeil.com) or with a phone call (509-679-4102). Hope to see you there!
