FINDLEY LAKE - Dust off that old Arctic Cat, Polaris or Sno Jet and get it running for the annual Vintage Snowmobile - Poker Run and Show. Don't want to ride or, not enough snow to ride? Bring it to the show for prizes and awards.
Pink Panthers of Findley Lake, in cooperation with the Findley Lake Chamber of Commerce, is sponsoring its annual Vintage Snowmobile - Poker Run & Show on Feb. 23. Registration and show are from 11 a.m. to noon at Pine Junction (9757 Bailey Hill Road, Findley Lake). Stops include Pine Junction, French Creek Tavern, Jimmy Z's and Blue Heron Inn. Hands called at 5 p.m. at Pine Junction.
Enjoy the wonderful trail system the Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club maintains in and around the greater Findley Lake area. The event qualifies for NYS Special Event Permit and registrants will not need NYS registration. The one-day event has been given a special event pass. What does this mean? You can trailer to Pine Junction drop off and, weather permitting, ride the roughly 15 miles of CLSC designated trails, for a $10 donation.
Rules and regulations will apply and be supplied during registration. Riders must carry insurance.
Proceeds will be donated to Pink Ribbon Riders, which provides financial assistance to both men and women diagnosed with breast cancer. PRR hosts snowmobile and many other events as fundraisers.
The PRR is a small volunteer-based organization. To date the group has helped more than 600 people diagnosed with breast cancer.
