2013 Eagle River Reunion
Show, Swap. Race
The 13th Annual World Championship Vintage Snowmobile Show & Reunion was held on the 14th and 15th of September at the Eagle River Derby Track in Eagle River Wisconsin. The Reunion was somewhat different this year. In the past the Reunion was Friday and Saturday. This year’s event was Saturday and Sunday. With the Drag races to be held on Sunday morning only, starting at 10:00 am. The weather was not perfect to say the least. With heavy rain falling Sunday morning forcing the track to cancel the Drag races. The show on the other hand produced some very nice sleds, along with some very nice brand sled and memorabilia displays. One can only guess at how much time it takes to put together these displays. The very nice Yamaha displays won Joey Niewolny a 1st place and Lein and Penne Koch a 3rd place. 2nd place in the display category went to Jim Nadler’s Moto-Ski display. The quality of the sleds was top notch. With so many great restorations it is getting harder every year to pick a “Best of Show winner. This year it was the Emrick’s, Al and Cathy with their 1976 TX Super Mod 340.
The Derby track has made some great improvements to the Derby Hall. The new Saloon is a great place to enjoy your favorite refreshments. The food menu is also offering a much wide selection of entrée’s.
