Talk about fun times, snowmobiles, mountain men and a vintage sled rendezvous! We won't want to miss the Cranbrook Snowmobile Club’s 33rd Annual Poker Run and Vintage Snowmobile Rendezvous, slated for Saturday, February 24, 2018.

One hand is $20 and three hands are $40 and here’s a nice touch for vintage fans: One bonus hand for sleds built in the 1970’s and two bonus hands for sleds built prior to 1969. (offered only when purchasing three hands or more)

In the Poker Run category, 1st place prize is $750; 2nd place $300 and 3rd place $100. In the vintage category, the oldest sled in attendance wins $50.

Called the Dyno Tuners the vintage branch of the club is always, as their sign says, looking for new members, old members, old sleds and new sleds – or any combination of the above.

The Cranbrook Snowmobile Club also invites you to attend their general club meetings at the Heritage Inn, 803 Cranbrook St. North and invite you to join as a new member. These meetings are held at 7 pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from October to April, with subsequent meetings scheduled as required.

The Club’s groomed trails are in excellent condition with lots of snow. Registration takes place at the Lumberton parking lot – at the SeaCans.
