Vintage snowmobiles on display across the Valley

The Vintage Snowmobile Club of the Adirondacks held a show on August 27 in Ormstown. It was the third time this event took place after the inaugural show in 2019; it returned in 2021 after the 2020 event was canceled. The day featured displays of vintage snowmobiles, vehicles for sale, a question-and-answer period with racers and special guests, and more.

This year’s turnout was much bigger than last. The club president, Daniel Beauchamp, explains that last year there were 135 snowmobiles on display, whereas this year there were 173. That number is excluding snowmobiles that were for sale. Including those, the event had over 200 vintage vehicles present.

Beauchamp says that the special guests were “absolutely awesome,” and that they included “race directors, former people from Bombardier, and we had a couple of racers.” He says that he is “extremely happy” with this year’s event and that it was “even better than last year.”

The club runs as a non-profit, where the “objective is to give,” according to Beauchamp. With this event, $2000 were raised for three different organizations. The first is the Betty Riel Foundation, which will be receiving $1000$. The club will also be giving $500 to the Barrie Memorial Hospital Foundation. Finally, a donation of $500 will be given to the Cerebral Palsy Foundation.
