Waconia Ride-In Committee Donates Big

ASCOA has received a surprise --- a generous gift of $ 1,500 from the Waconia Ride-In Organizational Committee.   At its 7/27/2017 meeting, several members of the Waconia Ride-In Committee spoke of the fun they had attending our Summer Show in Hutchinson.  They observed our outdoor membership meeting, the displays out on the front lawn and the rebuild of the RUSTLER snowmobile.  Some even came to the banquet and participated in the live auction.

In short, their Committee members sympathize with the financial constraints currently faced by ASCOA .  They wanted to help.  Their first motion, made and seconded, was for a $ 1,000 donation.  In discussion, the amount was increased to $ 1,500 because this is the approximate cost of a single ASCOA newsletter production & mailing.  The vote for $ 1,500 donation was unanimous!

Be aware that the Waconia Ride-In Committee also paid for a canopy tent and provided refreshments in Hutchinson.   Moreover, their Committee is anxious to host ASCOA at its Ride-In on January 26-28, 2018.

HAD A FUN WEEKEND WITH THE ANTIQUE CLUB...

The Antique Snowmobile Club of America has fun with old sleds. Mostly snow-belt state and Canadian guys who grew up with snowmobiles. Nothing like a screaming two stroke engine as you carve through the deep snow. Right??? We use restoration and demonstration to relive the good old days in the cold, crisp air.
To advance the mission of the club, we are offering a recently rebuilt 1969 Allied RUSTLER snowmobile by raffle. At our summer 2016 event, we disassembled the distinctive sled. Parts scattered and were refurbished. In Hutchinson, MN -- July 15th, 2017 --- it was put back together. We are proud of our work! Join and join us in the experience.
http://www.ascoa.org/club-info--membership--member-renewal.html Mission accomplished. Thanks guys! Your sweaty afternoon will return dividends as raffle ticket proceeds fund our club mission: "ASCOA is dedicated to preservation of the history and evolution of snowmobiles. Our Club invites all"
