Jeff how long do you think you will be working on the sled? I promisied to help a friend Sat. morning for a couple hours, but could run up by you after that? It might be 1:00 before I could get there. I would like to come and help and BS with you guys! :beers: I wish you would of posted Two days sooner that you planed on working on the sled. I will see if I can make a change of plans?

Hi W-Jetter

The sled is ALL the way tore down, as if you just had it painted. Which we did! :thumb:

No presure, What doesn't get done will get done soon enough. :angel: Just thought it would be a good oppurtunity to bench race and BS! :beer:

My suggestion is if it seems early enough give me a call Saturday and see how were doing before making the drive.

 Sorry about the short notice.

The tickets will be $1 each or 6 for $5. They will be available in the very near future. We usually send each member a few to begin with and have lots of extras if they'd like them to buy or sell. I think this is going to be a very popular sled raffle and tickets are going to sell really well. I know when Premix was painting it, he said several times how much he'd like to win it! (Me too!!) The raffle drawing will "probably" be the 1st Sat in February, 2012. In the past we've had the raffle at Ray McGuire's Bone Yard in Lena, the same day as the Balls Beater Run and we're hoping to do that again. It's always a fun day at Ray's!!! A show, swap, ride if possible, a poker run, raffles etc.  If you've never made that event, plan to be there this year. Proceeds benefit local non-profit groups & school projects. LOTS of food, beer, food, more beer and did I mention they have beer  :beer:

We'll have more info about the raffle for the members following our meeting on April 18th. A newsltter will be going out and we'll post raffle updates here on the forum. If you're interested in attending the meeting, it is at Newingham's in Wausaukee at 7 PM. Come Join Us!

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that we will also be selling tickets at as many shows, swaps and events as possible. You guys are welcome to join in with that if you'd like to!   :thankyou:

Come on up. Everything is still a GO!!!  :rocker:

 Bring what you want for beverage, however I will have plenty Coke Zero's for early morning and Coors Silver Bullets for later morning.  :thumb:

 We'll try to get by with Bear's tools!  :dunno:

Perhaps grab a burger at the Pub for lunch?  >:D

Bear's place is a mile west of Amberg on Dow Dam Road. Call me and I will get you there.  :angel:

Well, we had a good day yesterday. The Hillary is almost complete and alive again. Just need to put on graphics, Fuel lines and fuel tank install couple other small details and its done.













A huge, sincere thank you to our VP (Bear) and Dave & Joanie Sprenger for helping me with the reassembly of this sled yesterday. And also thank you to Premix for the sandblastiing and painting. I THINK THE SLED LOOKS GREAT!!!

Hey Autolube,We had a good time on Saturday helping to put the sled together.  We dont get to do too much for the club living as far away as we do,so we thought it would be a good time to come and help out. Now All I hope for is to win the sled in the raffle.

Oh no I haven't forgot the Snotwister the engine is tore down in the shop and the bottom end is going in for bearings seals and crank check, then new pistons, it will be ready for next year  :rocker: Autolube lets just hope you are, we also have the RV lining up with us so you'll have two sleds that you will need to deal with, but I know your up for that challenge  :catfight: I'll have the RV finely tuned also, hope Julie can handle driving with no ski's on the ground, I included a Pic of her fine machine  :rocker: Later
