Ride with Pride, a major fundraiser for local snowmobile clubs, has been launched. The event is co-sponsored by four area snowmobile clubs – Sno-Eagles of Eagle River, Sno-Buddies of Conover, Northern Lights Snowmobile Club of Three Lakes, and the Phelps Snowmobile Club.
Track Side of Eagle River has donated a 2019 Ski-Doo MXZ 600ES snowmobile OR a 2019 Can-AM Outlander 570 ATV, as the grand prize in the raffle. Second prize is a Yellowstone snowmobile trip and $500 for travel expenses. Included is 3 nights lodging and 2 days of snowmobile rental (2 sleds), two days snowmobile clothing, 1st tank of fuel each day for each sled, hot breakfast each morning, and a prime rib dinner. Third prize is a weekend getaway at Wild Eagle Lodge. Fourth prize is a dinner for two (up to $100) at Eagle Waters Resort.
Raffle tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10 and will be 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, February 23, 2019 at 12 noon. 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 for maintaining the funded trails. The clubs will use funds raised to help maintain area snowmobile trails in world class condition.
This event would not be possible without the dedication and support from Track Side, Three Bear Lodge in West Yellowstone, Eagle Waters Resort, Wild Eagle Lodge, and the local businesses that are promoting and selling the raffle tickets. We are grateful for their support.
