13th Annual Vet Snowmobile Ride
Saturday, March 11, 2017
We have spent many hours at grave sites on the honor guard in the Air Force remembering those who have served. This is really how our event came about. When Don and I retired, we wanted to do something to give people a chance to thank and honor vets in a positive environment. The first year we tried this in 2005, with only a few weeks of advertising, we had a tremendous response. SSA came on board and with a few friends we started a tradition. Each year as it continues to grow; it takes more volunteers to run a smooth event.
Sign up today to participate in the largest organized Veterans snowmobile ride in the US. Always the second Saturday in March - the 2017 event is on March 11th. It's "Operation Camaraderie" as riders ranging from the very experienced to the novice come from east coast and west to the little town of Seney to participate in this ride. Our motto is "Be a Vet, bring a Vet, thank a Vet.
Registration starts at 8:30 am. We begin with a brief recognition ceremony at the flag pole at 10:00am and then break up into groups of different riding abilities. Our local guides take you thru the majestic back country trails that were specially prepared for riding for this event covering 80 to 120 miles. Views of the Fox River and riding thru the Danaher Plains are just a couple of scenic sites on the ride.
A hot lunch will be served at the Eagles Nest cabin located at the head waters of the Tahquamenon River. A hand prepared dinner meal and bonfire (if weather permits) is the perfect social setting to round off the event. It's a day of fun, mingling, respect, and war stories, and thanks to all veterans for their contribution to the freedom we value so highly and continue to fight for.
The cost is FREE for anyone who has served or is currently serving in the armed forces. Donation for non-vets is $25.
Once again we ask if you intend to join us for this event we must have as close as possible a head count so we can assure enough food is prepared. Please call or email us at email@example.com as soon as possible. Thank you!
