The seventh annual Mille Lacs Kite Crossing will be held the weekend of March 4-6. With many of the fastest snowkiters in the world being from our local community, the challenge continues to draw from across the country. Riders of all levels are encouraged to attend. Come out, meet riders from around the area, share the stoke, check out some new gear and learn some new moves.
We are sad to announce that we have lost our home in Garrison. After two decades of gracious hospitality, the Y-Club was sold and closed in December. We are still adjusting to the change, but we have arranged for Harbor Inn to host the welcome party on Friday night and the VFW to host the banquet Saturday evening. Harbor Inn is a quarter-mile north of the Y-Club and the VFW is a block west. We would like to once again, thank Bucky and his staff for making it so much easier staging events at a remote site. First Carlsona, and now the Y-Club, both great losses.
As always, volunteer help is appreciated. Additional snowmobiles may be needed, so if you are not ready for the challenge and/or have friends with machines, contact us. We would also appreciate help with site setup as well as terrain park development. Even if you want to participate, or have a guest that would like to contribute, contact us at Fleetemail@example.com. Let us know of your projected arrival and your interest of contribution.
