Default A good omen for 2018

McCall has 4 days of rain and snow for next week. It seems like only a few months ago everyone was here for McCallin' 2017... oh, it was just a few months ago.

Default Early snow is great

Just as long as there are some clear, warm days in October to finish "a few" outdoor projects.

Should have my Frandee Model D S/N 37, which still has the steering ski, restored in time to make it, lets see if there are any room and gas card offers out there for me to bring it up like there were last year. Check it out (as I found it in 2010) under Gmoose postings in this forum. I will see if I can make it from Pocatello, Idaho.

Default Re: McCallin' All Cats 2018

OK, I am claiming that $100 gift card for the Frandee Sno Shu with a front ski! I have hundreds of restoration photos, I attached a photo of before (2010 when I purchased it for $100) and now (many many thousands of $ and hours later). If you want any photos of something specific, like how to make your own grousers for a Frandee I can provide that. The restoration is getting very close to complete, I just need a few more weeks of warm weather to complete the painting then I can finish the assembly. If you are passing through Pocatello, give me a call (208-221-5595 - Dave Stites) and I can show it to you.

Default McCallin' All Cats 2018 Snow Report

Drove up to Little Ski Hill today. On Wednesday Frebruary 21, 2018, we will have the whole hill to ourselves from noon till at least 8PM under the lights. They are planning a special dinner for us and the locals to benefit their after school program. Parking and unload/load should now be easy. A good day to wander up to McCall, check into the hotel and then head to the Hill for trial runs, fix-its and swapping tips and tricks ( wink, wink pirate skiing too). Yep, winter is just around the corner.

Default McCallin' All Cats 2018

With 1 foot of new snow overnight and to help kick off the 20017-18 Snow Season, the Idaho Snow Machine Association invited us to bring a vintage Tucker to be front and center Friday and Saturday in McCall for their annual convention. So here today is Lil' Cat, a 1957 Kitten, with a brand new Tucker groomer in the background soon headed to its new owners in Montana ( or maybe Wyoming). That's 60 years of Tuckering. The McCall Vintage Snowcat Club will be announcing the complete McCallin' All Cats 2018 February 21-24 schedule on Sunday, November 5th. "Those in the know" say you really don't want to miss this one. Much more on Sunday.

Default Progress?

How is the gas card winning Frandee coming along? It looks like there will be quite a few super rare rigs at McCall this coming February. (thought to be an early sighting of Pontoon Princessís latest project)

great looking machine, the owner has done a good job, IMHO

not my project, mine is all done, ready to go, FYI, my Frandee has a much bigger cab and was built using a 1926/1927 Model T cowl, different grill, and a rear door...
