Last photo and ride of the Day in West Yellowstone, Montana.
We loaded up sleds under
an incredible Montana Sunset and went
back to the Days Inn to hydrate and shower up for the WSVSA Banquet.
Polaris Pete, Bob and I headed down to the banquet room where
the divine hot food cast the aroma of protein yummy-ness.
Perry hosted the Banquet
with raffle drawing awards and the plans for the 2012 Show.
1977 is next years theme !
At this year's Western
Round UP we were surrounded by great folks
from all over the USA loaded with smiles.
Tony Crnkovich high-lighted
the event when he walked into the banquet room to present
a giant trophy to Jim Smith for his pursuit of excellence toward Vintage Sleds
and his dedication to Snowmobile History. Congratulations Jim Smith.
The day's entertainment
wrapped up with a festive banquet meal.
March 12th, 2011 marked a bountiful day in Vintage Snowmobile History.
The WSVSA Evening Banquet was the "primo ice-ing on the oval" for this event.
Many thanks to everyone that we had a chance to meet this year.
As the evening ended and
the clock struck 12, Bob, Polaris Pete and I pursued
THE Evening to say goodnight and close down every joint on Madison Avenue.
The early Sunday morning
ended with conversations about vintage snowmobiles, racing
and the great time we were all having. At 4AM I was looking over an old Ski Doo 354 liquid
cool engine in the hotel room, then boxed it up for the travel home. My son and I left
West Yellowstone before daybreak and witnessed all kinds of Wild Life driving
through the canyon. The sun was rising and the roadway was clear. Bob had
already fallen asleep and man did he have a sun burn on his face.
I was thinking about all
of the awesome people we met this weekend and how they were
just about now waking up and getting their day going.
We left the Stars and
Stripes hanging on the outside of our hotel room door so that everyone
checking out of the 3rd floor would see it and know that.....
Sno Pro USA Was Here !
