Headed up to the cabin aging near Finalnd for the weekend. Got up there to about 5" of fresh snow and trails were very good for the most part. Lots of snow in places yet. River running is basically done and lakes had a lot of slush/water on them.
This weekend was the Finland snowmobile clubs vintage run and games so I thought I'd show some pictures of that.

I grew up riding a 399 panther like this, minus the pipes!

At the games on Sunday they had vintage sled races and kids races. This is my son racing his 120

My son Trent with the trophy for the youth class (10 and under) They just raced the clock around 2 different courses but he had a great time. It's all he could talk about all week when I told him we were going to go up for it. And it's all he talked about all the way home!

The Finland Club put on a great event. Lot's of fun watching the vintage sleds race, watching the blindfold race, the raffles, etc...

My son with the trophy for the 10 and under class. They raced against the clock on 2 different course and he had a great time. When I told him about it last week it's all he could talk about and then it's all he talked about on the way home.

The Finland Club did a great job with the weekend.
