RACER'S to PINES RIDE is on for March 3rd !!!
« on: February 27, 2012, 08:09:26 PM »
The Ride is ON for this Saturday! :dancinbanana:

Racer called me..... he and Mike from the Pines talked over the weekend. After expressing their disappointment that the ride had to be canceled due to the lack of snow, they wondered why not have it this weekend? I agreed if there is SNOW we should have this RIDE!

 If you watched the weather forecast  :popcorn:  we are in for the most snowfall we had all year....COMBINED!  :rocker:

So, there is no reason not to have one of our premier rides of the year which maybe during the best snow of the year in the Crivitz area.

Get the sleds ready....The season ain't over yet!!!

My suggestion would be to arrive at Racer's by 10:00 am. :police:

That way you have time to unload, park and get signed in. :thumb:

Getting good response to the emails and postings I did this morning about the rescheduled Pines-Racers ride. Some people have made other plans and then a few are able to make, but couldn't if it was last week end. And heard from some new people who might make it as well. Anyway, it's a mixed bag. But they have not backed off on the snow totals for us --- yet! Looks like everyone is ready to make the most out of a snowy March!

Help us get the word out to vintage sledders if you can, please! We'll leave Racer's at 11, ride to The Pines for fun-fun-fun and then back to Racer's for food, beverages, raffles etc. Don't forget to save room on your trailer for the barn fresh sled you might win!

Sorry, can't make it.  This weekend our group heads over to Sugar Camp to burn some pistons.  This is an annual event scheduled for the first weekend in March every year.  Hopefully we will make it to the Racer's/Pines pinch or other rides with you guys in the future.  My sled is fixed from the last piston burner that I went on with you guys! :clapping:

Have fun on the Iron Snowshoe Trails, it is one of my favorite areas.

Here are some pics from past trips to Sugar Camp.  (we don't have any fun there)

Oh yeah! It snowed and it's still snowing! Finally some good sledding. Come to the Racers-Pines ride or just get out and enjoy this wonderful snowfall, it doesn't happen very often around here anymore. Groomer volunteers will be out in force getting the trails ready. Take it while you can!

Don't use all the snow up before we get there. All we have down here (s. of gb) is slush. :(

OMG!.....It is absolutely a winter wonderland out here. How my little Ford Escort got me to work at 5:30 this morning I'll never understand. Nothing was plowed yet except the major highways.

I am actually looking forward to finally trying out my new snow blower when I get home. And when that is DONE....I will RIDE the trails as much as possible.

This weekend is a must ride weekend, best conditions of the season and remember it is March so the snow may be gone by the next weekend.


I will post pictures tonight if I have time.

Yippie-KI-aye Sled Heads!!!

This could be your last chance this season.  Just follow the simple steps to transform yourself from a couch potato to a vintage sled head:  1) Load your trail iron on the trailer, 2) fill it with fresh motion lotion, 3) connect the trailer to your vehicle & drive to Racer and Lana Rae's, 4)  Unload, pull the rope , tweak your tilly, hit the trail and have a great time.  And PRESTO! you are no longer a couch potato :rocker:

Grab your Brain Bucket, get your permission slip, pack your MacGyver and get going.  The time is NOW  :dancinbanana: :dancinbanana: :dancinbanana: :dancinbanana:
