Going to throw somethings out. Just thinking out loud here:

If getting a cat ride to some snow to ski/board is possible that would be epic for some of us.

Maybe some cat proving grounds on the steep and deep to see who the real king of the hill is? Not sure how to handicap the Pontoon tuckers to make it fair though.

A ride in a Kristi moving under it's own power would be historic.

Driving skills? I know backing my tucker on to a trailer/groomer/drags is a challenge. Kind like the brady bunch driving contest with the cone and egg?

Something to lure in the attention of the kids and significant others who maybe in tow and allow us to live with this addition? Nice view, picnic lunch, fire for warmth and not an all day time commitment?

It's about 550 miles from Puget Sound - so not bad compared to other folks. As a local, where are we going to park 50 trucks and trailers? I've been looking at lodging and I don't see any with large parking areas so far. Do you have any ideas on lodging or places you think might work and be somewhat secure?

Thank you for all the hard work, Dan

Couple of ideas for consideration.

ID board. Pix of cat, name of owner, basic stats. We had people asking about certain cats at Meow I, and trying to remember everyone...

A "Grand Parade" get a good quality video camera, or two, and get a video of all the cats driving by. either by age, or make or?

hope to be there.

I've noticed they have a couple of different ski areas and terrain parks. Are we planning to base out of any one in particular?

We will based in town using two great hotels owned by a local family. I am working on parking logistics with the city and getting arrangements made with our gitney bus service to help out. We will need a bunch of trailer loading/unloading wranglers to make it go more smoothly. Local police and fire are onboard for security and emergency medical services. Looking at snowmobile side trips to Burgdorf Hot Springs and maybe site seeing in a ski equipped Bushplane. There is also the indoor ice rink in the middle of town for skating and for hockey and ice skating shows. So far I have not seen any snowcats on frozen Payette Lake but maybe next year?

This is sounding really great. Happy to help out if there's anything I can do.
I started coming down with a serious snow cat fever yesterday.

Default Event Poster Glamor shots

Scott Anderson , the artist doing the McCallin' All Cats 2017 event advertising poster asked us to post pics of our snow cats that will be coming. His brother just bought one of Bogus Basin's (near Boise) vintage Tucker cats and he would like to see some more examples of the many models and manufactures. The original acrylic of the poster will be available as well as limited signed special editions. These will all be very affordable. McCall 2017 Crew

Plans call for the first night to be under the lights at Little Ski Hill. We will have the area all to ourselves.

I haven't seen the station wagon around town . But there still is a pay phone just like in the picture. I think the kids inherited the house on the lake.

Not quite yet, the two managers are working on their best rates but it's still high season in McCall so they are pretty busy. Should have it all set by August 15-20. McCall 2017 crew
