Reminder about Upcoming Rides

Saturday, January 30th, is our annual Charity Ride. All monies raised will stay locally in Okanogan County to help others in need.  Ride departs from Boulder Creek Sno-park at 10:00 and will rendezvous with riders from the Butte Busters Snowmobile club for lunch in Conconully. MVSA will NOT be providing lunch for this ride. You will be responsible for buying your own.

Sunday, February 14th, is our Bucket Run at Goat Creek Sno-park in Mazama. We have a limited number of spots available so please let us know via our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/events/1636601663272406/) or via comment here that you will be attending. We are trying to get an idea on head count. Arrive between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. to register and pick up your poker hand sheet. First riders will leave around 10 a.m.  Stations will close at 1:00 p.m. and prizes awarded starting at 1:30 p.m.

If your sled is registered as a vintage machine, you will receive an extra poker hand free.

Cost for the bucket run is $10 for a commemorative button. Lunch will be served at the sno-park.
