View Full Version : Drivers and sleds needed

02-18-2011, 10:50 AM
on March 14th. The Range Sowmobile Club is having the annual ride in for the challenged children. We are need of 2 ups or cutters. This is such a neat event and the children and young adults really enjoy and look forward to it. A light lunch is served and a police escort is done, the route is, usually leave the club house and go to the bridge towards the Freda, turn around and come back to lunch. What is really in need as well is for people to go to the rental busniesses and pick up what sleds are donated. Please if anyone can help out give me a call.

How many more do you need?? I was hoping the snow would hold up and I could spend the weekend and do some riding and then help out with the ride on Monday. I have 2 daughters who could shuttle sleds along with me. We could supply a 2 up as well. Let me know or post your projected needs and how close you are to filling them. Thanks, Dave

We hope snow conditions will at least remain as they are now.If there is a change ,changes will be made as needed. We never have had to many drivers or sleds.What rentals are not rented out, is what we get to use. Sleds are provided by Dan's or Evert's, I belive the other rental companies have been asked, have not heard if they will be donating.In the past there have been at least 20 to 25 students,and a handfull of voluteers,that are more then willing to help in any way. They have always managed to take care of the kids needs. Any help or sleds will be appreciated. We just voluteer,Joe above may have more input as he is a member of the snowmobile club that helps put this together.Another contact possiable would be Neil Marietta Sr. 482-7921

It was a really fun ride for all of us. - The kids were really excited and it was great to see them have so much fun. Thanks to the people who organized this ride and the people donated the 2-up sleds. Great photos - I wish I had taken some.
