Southern Valley Trail Riders
Well the little bit of snow we got is getting the Southern Valley Trail Riders Association ready to host the 2014 North Dakota Snowmobile State Ride on Saturday, February 7, 2015! We’re planning a fun day running on the trails throughout Richland County and ending the festivities at the Mooreton Community Hall in Mooreton, ND. Fun Run Drawing will be from 4-7 pm. The Grand Prize will be drawn at 10 pm. If you’re interested in our raffle tickets for our State Ride Raffle which the grand prize is a New 800 Polaris Ranger 4 x 4 and also includes 25 – $100 Cash Prizes. There are only 500 tickets sold. Contact Dave Link at 701640-1198 or Dave Ward at 701-6402000 or Renee Braun at 701-6408338. You need not be present to win. There will be food available at the hall all day and after the run we will have DJ entertainment! Registration for the “Fun Run” and the “Vintage Snowmobile Show and Ride” will start at 9 am at the Mooreton Community Hall. The Vintage Snowmobile judging will happen at 11:30 am followed by the smooth ride at noon to Mantador and back to Mooreton. The sleds will be judged on “people’s choice”, “best original”, “best restored”, “most unique” & “bartender’s choice”. Trophies will also be awarded.
We have reserved a block of rooms at the Baymont Inn in Wahpeton, ND (along the 210 bypass) where there is easy snowmobile trail access. Their number is 701-642-5000. The rooms are blocked under “North Dakota State Snowmobile Ride” for February 6-8, 2015. For more updated information on the State run, check out our Facebook page at Southern Valley Trail Riders Association and if you’d like to be on an email contact list, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get updates to you. The last time the Southern Valley Trail Riders Association was given the opportunity to host the State Run was in 2012; even with lack of snow we all had a great time enjoying the company of new friends from across the state. We took to riding in a couple of buses and making all the stops along the trail. The local businesses really catered to us, and we were very thankful for their hospitality. We hope you come down to the southern corner of the state and join in the fun of the 2015 ND State Run! We can’t wait to see you!
