With a large crowd in attendance, the much anticipated Groom to Ride drawing was held at Trackside on February 29th.

Representatives from the Sno-Eagles, Sno Buddies and Northern Lights Snowmobile Club were present while the winning tickets were drawn by Miss Sno-Eagle, Kortnie Volk.

The raffle generated $22,671 in ticket sales of which the Sno-Eagles received $11,335. All proceeds will be used for our trail grooming program.

Trackside donated first prize – choice of a 2020 Ski-Doo MXZ 600ES snowmobile or a 2020 Can-AM Outlander 570 ATV.

Second prize, 2021 World Championship Snowmobile Derby tickets for 4 reserved indoor Hot Seats including admission and parking was donated by the owners of the World Championship Derby Complex.

Third prize was a guided fishing package for 2 including one day of fishing donated by Jason Pertiles Up North Guide Service, a two-night stay at the Northernaire Resort donated by the Northernaire Resort Condo Association, and dinner for two at Aromas Italian Restaurant donated by Bill and Karen Hren.
