C.J. Ramstad Memorial Trail Ride
The Waconia 2008 Committee is proud to announce that its traditional trail ride on Saturday, January 26, 2008 has been named the “C.J. Ramstad Memorial Trail Ride”.
The Committee asks that trail riders consider making a cash donation in honor of C.J. who gave so much to our winter passion and made such a profoundly positive impact on snowmobiling through his advocacy, publicity and promotion.
C.J. showed the general public how fun snowmobiling was through example and through his extensive photo gallery.
All cash contributions will be forwarded to the Snowmobile Hall of Fame in St. Germain, WI, where they are constructing a Ramstad Library and Media Center --- a special room/display of C.J’s photographs and historic artifacts.
The Waconia event features a famous trail ride, where over 400 vintage and antique snow machines gather for a fun jaunt over the lake and on local trails.
This ride gets more popular every year. C.J’s wife Karla has agreed to lead the trail ride on C.J’s beloved 1968 black Arctic Cat Panther. Daughter Marli has shown interest in attending as well.
Waconia is a southwest suburb of the Twin Cities, Minnesota. The weekend event has grown into the largest classic snowmobile event on snow.
