Groom to Ride, a major fundraiser for local snowmobile clubs, has been launched.  The event is co-sponsored by three area snowmobile clubs – Sno-Eagles of Eagle River, Sno-Buddies of Conover, and Northern Lights Snowmobile Club of Three Lakes.

Track Side of Eagle River donated a 2022 Ski-Doo 600 snowmobile as the grand prize in the raffle.  Second prize is World Championship Snowmobile Derby tickets for 4 reserved indoor Hot Seats including admission and parking donated by Russ Davis and the owners of the World Championship Derby Complex.  Third prize is a 2-night stay at the Northernaire Resort in Three Lakes, dinner for two at Aromas Italian Restaurant donated by Bill and Karen Hren, and dinner for two at Bonnie’s Lakeside Restaurant donated by Bonnie Lamb.  Fourth prize is $300 cash.

Raffle tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20 and are available at local restaurants, bars, resorts, marinas, businesses, and at the World Snowmobile Headquarters.  The drawing will be held at Track Side in Eagle River on Saturday, March 26, 2022, at 1 PM.  The winner need not be present.

Having well-maintained snowmobile trails is critical to the local economy.  Not all snowmobile trails receive state funding, and state funds do not cover all the costs of maintaining the funded trails.  The clubs will use funds raised to help maintain area snowmobile trails in world-class condition according to Wolf.

This event would not be possible without the dedication and support from Track Side, the World Championship Derby Complex, the Northernaire Resort, Aromas Italian Restaurant, Bonnie’s Lakeside Restaurant, and the local businesses that are promoting and selling the raffle tickets.  Their support demonstrates their commitment to the Eagle River community.
