With the cost of purchasing a new groomer in sight, the Williams Lake Powder Kings Snowmobile Club is hosting a year-end social, fundraiser.

With the cost of purchasing a new groomer in sight, the Williams Lake Powder Kings Snowmobile Club is hosting a year-end social, fundraiser and dance April 18 at the Ramada Convention Centre starting at 6 p.m.

“Since 1993 the WLPKSC has worked hard to create and maintain some of the best snowmobile trails in the North Cariboo,” said WLPKSC president Mark Snowball, adding most of the work is done by volunteers who donate their time to groom and maintain the trails at Yank’s Peak.

“This year we’re raising money to purchase a newer groomer for our Yank’s Peak riding area.”

The club’s current groomer, affectionately named Paris, takes two people up to 12 hours to groom the trails from the parking lot to the Yank’s Peak safety cabin.

“Upgrading to a faster, more efficient and reliable groomer will mean our volunteers can groom more trails for riders to enjoy,” he said.

At the year-end social there will be door prizes, a silent auction, a 50/50 draw, bucket draws, finger food, a cash bar and a WLPKSC highlight show reel.

Tickets are $25 each and are available at Spectra Power Sports and Gordos Rentals or, for more information or to donate auction items or bucket prize items, contact Snowball at 250-398-5328.
