Hey everyone! Just wanted to get the dates out there for this coming year's Jamboree. It will once again be held in Joseph, OR in the Wallowa Mountains on January 15th-17th, 2022.

I am still working on some of the logistics but will post updates as they come in. For example, the past years we have all been scattered through town at different motels but this year we are trying to get the use of the Wallowa Lake Lodge with catering for all meals exclusively for the sno-cat Jamboree. That way we all have the same start and finish place along with meals and lodging. Would be much better for visiting and discussing each day's events.

Once again, this Jamboree will be put on and sponsored by us, Alpine Cat Tours, Wallowa Alpine Huts, Tucker Sno-Cat Corp., and the US Forest Service.

Stay tuned for updates.

Frandee 37 will be there, may be a half day late, but wouldn't miss this event. I could even be talked into bringing the Kitten if someone wanted to drive it (let me know).

This is Wallowa Lake Lodge. Our meeting place for both lodging and meals. Currently working with the lodge on packages and prices that will be offered. Stay tuned.

I hope that everyone who has attended in years prior will get to join again. Such a killer group. And I'm sure we will have some new attendees. Looking forward to it!

Can hardly wait. It was requested that I bring the Kitten, so if everything goes well it will be there for anyone to drive around (as well as the Frandee). Yes the Kitten is repaired from last years brake-down. However, I will still have the tow strap, just in case. As history has shown, there will be at least one cat towed out, or if lucky limped out under it's own power. Great times, just absolutely great times!!!

We will be there with Luleelura! ( the Thiokol 2100-ish thing ) I am a bit worried about not being to keep up with all those Tuckers! The Thiokol is a bit of a crawler. So excited! This will be my first jamboree!
Hi Thefatsquatch. Awesome! Glad to hear you are coming! And I am sure your machine will do just fine. I am still waiting on some details but am hoping to get everyone more information soon. Stay tuned.

Just made my reservations to stay at the Wallowa Lake Lodge, getting close, can hardly wait. We should get there Friday evening/afternoon and leave Monday after the fun.

Here is what I am bringing, what are you bringing????

1953 Frandee Model D,
1962 Tucker Kitten,
19XX (secret number) wife,
1998 son,
and a whole bunch of excitement.

Now if we go up Mt. Howard again, I will probably need an Uber snowcat ride the last mile or so, those Frandee tracks (1 inch wide steel plates) are like skis that want to go sideways on that one patch near the end. Hopefully we wont have to tow the Kitten out again. Also, I will put together the "Damage Report" after the Jamboree once again!
