Several members of the Methow Valley Snowmobile Association along with a few others from our community spent part of their Christmas day volunteering at the annual Christmas Dinner. The club sponsors the dinner each year to provide a free dinner to folks in our valley. Turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, broccoli salad, Caesar salad, fruit salad, rolls and a multitude of desserts were served.
Thanks to those who donated their time, food and funds to help us have another successful dinner!
Ten riders set out last Sunday from the Goat Creek Sno-Park. The ride turned into a work party because of the lack of snow that kept everyone on the roads. Trees were cleared off of the roads for the groomer and wood was cut and stacked to fill the warming hut up for future rides. Looks like those snowmobilers made the best out of the situation and had a fun day!
The results are in and a majority of poll respondents like to ride off-trail. Say what!? That wasn't the question. Ahh, but if it is taking you a couple of hours to dig out from your worst "stuck" then you aren't on a groomed trail. Three people apparently stay on our nicely-manicured trails with one rider having a minor whoopsie and getting slightly off track; and two that are perfect riders having never gone off trail (or maybe never been on a snowmobile--hmmmm). Good news is that nobody lost their sled.
Here are the final results:
a) Dug it out in less than 10 minutes
b) Took a couple of hours to get out
c) Recovered when snow melted
d) Who me? Stuck? Never!
Thanks to all who took the time to vote in the poll. New poll will be up shortly for your voting pleasure.
