    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.

    Posted on 03/11/17 at 08:39 AM

    Greetings WSSA!

    It's been a SNOWY winter and the season is winding down; partly because it is near the end, but also because funds in the snowmobile program have been nearly depleted. Here is some info from State Parks:

  • New Past Event - A ride to Whistlin' Jack

    Posted on 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!

  • New Past Event - A Vintage Day at Byrd's

    Posted on 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.

    I am selling for a friend his 1968 Diablo Rouge. The original owner from new was his father. He is the second owner. It comes with the original manuals, and a very nice home built set of wheels you put under the trailer skis for riding in the summer. His father built the 'cow catcher' for the front. 

    Asking $1500 obo for the sled with wheeled trailer. There are more pictures on my Photo Bucket site: http://s1284.photobucket.com/user/kevcho357/library/Craigs%20Diablo?sort=3&page=1

    There is also a video from a ride we took last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJtxYuUdcXo 

    Willing to help with shipping but the buyer has to pay the shipping.
