These sleds await their turn to compete in the radar run.
The West End Trailblazers Snowmobile Club's 7th Annual Winterfest in Roulette, Potter County, was well attended by snowmobilers as well as those who just wanted to bring the family out for a day of fun on the farm.
An estimate of 50 to 60 sleds sped around the many acres open to sledding at the Kaple Century Farm on Saturday. The off street parking was nearly full. Snowmobiles raced across the fields and onto the side hill up and down the snowmobile trail.
In the barn, busy workers dished out hamburgers, hot dogs, and the likes, while just outside, the chicken barbeque crew cooked up some of the tasty half chickens the club is famous for.
A large pile of snow plowed up high seemed to overshadow all the planned amusements for the kiddies, as the little ones climbed the snow hill and threw snow at each other, sometimes tumbling to the bottom.
On the other end of the farm field, snowmobilers raced time on a groomed trail, in an event called a radar run, to see who had the fastest sled.
The big difference this year, compares to the last few years, was the snow. Over a foot is left on the ground. Other years they had to settle for a few inches, and sleds don't work well with that.
Solomon's words was there and took many photos which will be posted as we get the time to upload them. Watch for a link in the near future to see all of them.
