Hidden Valley Snow Rriders enjoyed
a wonderful winter day at our annual Don Landroche Memorial cookout on
February 21, 2015. Chili, hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, pastries and
drinks were enjoyed by all who stopped by the warming hut on Trail 392
in Marlow. Pie plates were posted on the trails announcing the
event the week before. Even the posting of the plates has become
a tradition. Don was the one who suggested we do that so many years
ago. Thanks to President Gus, Bud and Jim Jackson for riding around and
hanging the plates. I understand Jeannie did a lot of the printing.
Thanks. Speaking of pastries, sugar cookies baked by Lisa were a
hit. The event seems to draw more and more snowmobilers each year but I
think the great snow had something to do with it this year. There
was 2 feet of snow on the ground that we had to stomp down around the
warming hut. It never did get warm enough for the snow to slide off the
roof however. I donít know what the capacity is for the warming
hut, but there were a couple of times you could hardly get the door
open to get in. Jim Jackson has stepped in as the head chef and
event organizer. He does a great job and we thank him for his generous
efforts. I had heard Don never was one for cooking, but he sure did
enjoy flipping the burgers those few years he was at the cookout. Of
course we could not have this event without David and Terry Collardís
(Donís Daughter) permission to have the warming hut on their land. We
will miss them as they move to their new digs in Kentucky and thank
them for all their support of snowmobiling over the years. They were
part of the founding members of club.
Jim Strickland, Acting Secretary.
