58 Sleds in Ride Following Meeting

The February Snoman board of directors' meeting was held in Russell, in conjunction with the Western Region meeting, on February 14. The Snowtraxx Snowmobile Club was the host for both meetings.

In addition to the meetings, Snowtraxx made the necessary arrangements for all to enjoy a ride on the Snowtraxx club trail system. On Saturday morning 58 sleds in three groups left the Russell Inn at 9:30 am and headed out on a 160 km ride. The three groups all arrived in Rossburn for a great lunch at 1:00pm and after lunch continued their ride and returned to Russell at approximately 5:00pm.

After a brief rest all riders joined in and participated in the Dickens's dinner theatre. Everyone had a role to play in the dinner theatre and not only was the food great the entertainment was fabulous.

Of the 58 riders there were clubs members from Thompson, Gimli, Portage, Deloraine, Swan River, Grand View, The Pas, Brandon and Dauphin. It should be noted that during the ride not one sled broke a belt or had any mechanical issues- it was likely one of the best days we have had for a ride this winter and a great time was had by all.
