those are pretty big shoes....

I am not sure I am the guy who has the drive of Big Al. I came into this foray a little late into the wild days of 2007 when there was 10% lurking and 80% sharing (10% lost and misplaced posting)

If Big AL was here now Maybe that particepation ratio would be different.

In the mean time the YOOP just got hammered again with more high moisture snow.
First time commemorative dash plaque style stickers hit the mail, Ironically from portland OR.

The mountain bike crew has committed to make an appearance.

All are welcome PM for details if your too shy to ask here?

As soon as those who are there can meet at the lodge grab some coffee and head out... That might be by 8 o'clock in the morning, or a bit later..

Some participants arrive on Thursday morning so we try to leave the ski hill around 9am. As a group we are pretty relaxed on the start time. We have even been known to have two groups leave at different times to accommodate participants arriving after the first group has already departed. Thursday is also a good day for last minute repairs etc.

100mph and KT-4 take the first shift.

I generally hang back and herd cats.

To all, the Clowder is a lucky group, we have a generous Gift of radios to use for the event. they were discussed here somewhere in another thread, the reach is pretty good, Keep them warm and actually listen to it and you will never be alone.

Or hang it on your visor and let it spend the night in your cat, You might be the cat who can't get a hold of anybody.

I mean no harm in the following statement, but squirrel, is NOT Big Al, he can and never will be replaced. And any comparison is not fair to big Al his legendary Run on the forums should always remain unscathed. I’ve never had a person that could make me laugh more than Big Al. Maybe it was the rum and coke jokes because I also enjoy R and C in the evening sometimes.

Squirrel needs to remain Squirrel.

He has his attributes, we all do

Default Re: 2019 midwest cat clowder

in clowder 2019 news.

We will be shaping a course in the terain park for snow cat games. I have invited a group of UTV operators to join our fun. so a little head to head tracked UTV vs Snow cat expose' should be fun.

so here is the un - *Official* schedule update

Thursday:

Trail ride out of the Powder horn village, first wave leaving 8 am. I will be staying behind gathering up any late comers ( Black super duty, tandem dual trailer ) Look for a snow cat giggle giggle.
warmer track:
Jacquart fabric tour. ( we can set up a group outing if there is interest )
Terrain park creation upon our return. folks with blades or tillers packer bars are encouraged to come down to learn some tricks from the BPH staff

Friday

Large Lunch excursion to lake superior, (Lake superior Ice caves is the goal, There is no Ice to safely travel on so we will point to them )
Copper peak visit.
Baldy Mountain and/or the "power plant" depending on conditions
Can't remember the water fall on the black rivers name but if we can get across the river we can take in the view of the gorge.....
[B]warmer track[/B]: culinary tour of local brew pubs and bistro.

Saturday:

Show and shine at big powder horn 8am-12pm
1 PM expose' and rodeo games.
4PM sunset cruise to the top (bonfire, weather permitting)
Snow cat parade throughout the Powder horn facility arriving at the caribou or gun barrel lodge dinner program music to follow. (live band)


There are groups of folks that go off site to get items of need, some folks set out for dessert, That Iowa group likes to go down to Hurley to take in the local color..... the key to the Midwest Clowders success is one simple rule from our host.

"there are no rules"

I also finished booking, got a little more complicated when the wife and kids decided to visit the in-laws in Florida the week before the clowder. So, my dad offered to come along for a couple days, we'll be driving up Thursday evening. Staying at the Bluffs Inn in Bessemer Thursday and Friday night. Then the family will drive up Saturday morning for a day of skiing and my dad will head home. The family is planning to stay for the evening, drive around the ski hill and have dinner, then load up and head back to a hotel in Hurley Saturday night. I didn't pay attention too well last year, but is there a proper space to bring the Tucker and trailer down to the ski hill Thursday evening and leave it overnight?

Yes, I use the large lot just west of the lodge, I call it the upper lot.... Look for other snow cats on trailers and drop it in the litter. some folks leave them hooked up and most motels in the region are trailer and block heater friendly. If you determine it needs some service we can call ahead and get a spot in the groomer barn. warm bowls tucker milk/oil/antifreeze there...

Haha, I am sure that the ski dozer can build a ramp to drive up there. Kinda like last winter with the snow road!
