Local snowmobilers host fun runs Jan. 18, 25

STATESMAN STAFFJanuary 16, 2014 


The Cougar Mountain Snowmobile Fun Run is Saturday, Jan. 18, at the Wellington Snow Park in Smiths Ferry.

Registration from 9 a.m. to noon. Riders will leave between those times and then return by 3:30 p.m. for the drawings.

Snowmobilers will ride a 35-mile course on groomed trails and pick up chips with numbers that will be used to determine the winners in a raffle drawing. Entries are for $5 per person, and riders can buy multiple entries. Cash prizes and raffle and door prizes will be awarded to participants.

Amount available for cash prizes is determined by how many people enter. People can also buy raffle tickets and participate in the drawings even if they don't ride.

There will be chili, cheese and hot dogs for participants at the event. The park has a heated area indoors where people can relax while waiting for others to come back from their rides.
