Not to be outdone by mere speed records however, the charity event blew through other milestones as well, including number of snowmobiles registered at 98 vs. the previous record of 85 at last year’s race. Racers flocked to Rainy Lake from a record 36 cities representing Minnesota, North Dakota, Ontario, Wisconsin and… Oklahoma!
International Voyageur Snowmobile Club (IVSC) volunteers raised $1,338 at the event from racer fees and free-will donations. All proceeds are forwarded to the Community Cancer Walk non-profit organization benefiting local cancer treatment patients. IVSC member volunteers also contributed countless hours of track prep, tear down, registration and officiating duties.
Next years’ event is scheduled for Saturday, February 16, 2019 in conjunction with President’s Day weekend. Any bets on 130 mph next year from the Open Class clan?

2018 Annual Hotdog Roast – Another successful year!
International Voyageurs Snowmobile Club hosted their annual hot dog roast in February at the Hagerman Shelter. Steve Thomopoulos who coordinates the roast for IVSC is shown turning over a check to Karina McLellan of the Falls Hunger Coalition.
