We are doing something new this year and are SUPER EXCITED!
The Drifters and SAR (Search & Rescue have volunteered to help with the Centre of Hope's FIRE & ICE event. We will have two groups/places to either volunteer or attend.
Please check out the information on our website https://www.snodrifters.ca/family-safe-ride
You can choose to do both parts or only the one you prefer. If you could mark yourself as attending on our Facebook page it would be a huge help to us. Just click on the link
Group A: will consist of sleds/drivers that will meet up with the people from the Centre of Hope at the day use area in Anzac at 8am. We will then transport them and their gear 5km across the ice on Gregoire lake to the island. Once we have completed that we will then ride to join Group B at the Drifter Garage off of Hwy 69. Then both groups will ride the Anzac Trail to the ZEEBAR in Anzac for wing platters and beverages as well as a short presentation on ice safety. The Sno-Drifters will be covering the cost of the platters and beverages. No alcohol or specific meals. Attendees must be 18 yrs of age with valid ID to go to the ZEEBAR.
Group B: will meet at the Drifter garage off of Hwy 69. All riders must be ready to ride by 11am sharp. So please make sure you leave enough time to park/unload, gear up and fill out the waiver.
