Bill Bradfield outlined his idea for a ride in 2015. Start in Michigan, ride into Canada, get on an airplane fly to Sweden and then ride in Sweden, ride in Finland and ride in Russia.  Trip will be about 26 days with about 13 on sleds. This ride can be segmented if a rider wants to do only part of it.  Call Bill Bradfield for more details, space is limited.

Trip for 2014 is gaining momentum.  We will be going to Quebec. Riding thru western Quebec and ending up on the Gaspe Peninsula. Space is limited on this trip also, with current members getting preferential treatment if they want to go. This ride can be segmented if a ride wished to do so. Trip will be about three weeks long. George Pattullo has put in ALOT of work on this trip and he estimates total miles on a sled about 3000 when the trip ends. Number of chase vehicles is yet to be determined.

Club working on insurance for all events. Some changes to how we operate and plan our future trips will result from these changes .
