Mat-Su Vintage club has full slate
The Mat-Su Vintage Snowmachine Racing Club, in conjunction with the Big Lake Aurora Lions Club, hosts its first race at the Mat-Su Resort. Lions Cards will need be renewed at signups or you can fill out attached form, mail it in with a check and a card will be ready at signup. All racers will need to renew at this race. Please come early.
The club would like to have a “Show and Shine.” If you have a sled to show off, bring it, as there will be a roped-off area for you to show it.
A few modifications to the rules are being added this year. They include:
1. The track closes at 11:15 a.m.
2. Signups close at 11:30 a.m., and a late fee will be determined on how late you try to sign up.
3. The race size is lowered to eight in main races, maximum, except at GP and Willow event.
4. The Over-60 Class is now Over-55 Class.
5. A 0-440 fan/fa stock class has been added. Stock appearing skis (no Northstar skis), original carb and airbox, stock exhaust, replacement handle bars are OK (no Oval Bars). 100 percent Tech every race.
6. Tech is at 10 a.m.
7. Jack stands are mandatory to “clean out” engine. No lifting sleds.
8. No “pit racing.”
9. Safety is our priority. Our website is in the process of being updated. Go to matsuvintageracers.com.
Juneau Snowmobile Club biography
The Juneau Snowmobile Club was established in 1996 with only a few members, but today the club is about 150 members strong and includes eight board members. The club meets regularly during the winter to discuss their monthly agenda, which includes setting up a schedule and finding volunteers to help groom trails. Other issues include organizing fundraisers to help for trail grooming costs and other club sponsored events.
Several members are active in, and train with, the Juneau Search and Rescue. Four of the clubs members are on the A list and actively participate in SAR drills. It is mainly used for transport, hauling personnel and SAR dogs. Two trails maintained by the club include the Dan Muller and the Spaulding Meadows trails. Each trail is approximately 3.5 miles long and opens up to off-trail riding in the high country. Most years, with good snow pack, the Spaulding Meadows Trail can get you into the Juneau Ice Fields.
