Ride with Pride, a major fundraiser for local snowmobile clubs, is happening now. The event is 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 2018 Ski-Doo MXZ 600ES snowmobile OR a 2017 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 mini-vacation at Wild Eagle Lodge with a dinner certificate for the Blue Heron Restaurant. Fourth prize is a mini-vacation at Eagle Waters Resort with a $25 restaurant gift card.
Raffle tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10 and are available at local restaurants, bars, resorts, marinas, businesses and at the World Championship Snowmobile Derby. The drawing will be held at Track Side in Eagle River on Saturday, February 24, 2018 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, Eagle Waters Resort, Wild Eagle Lodge, and the local businesses that are promoting and selling the raffle tickets.
