2012 TRF Vintage Snowmobile Show & Ride

The 5th Annual vintage (and antique snowmobile show & ride will take place in Thief River Falls on March 3.

"The Last Ride" 2012 Vintage Snowmobile Show & Ride in TRF

Judging from the weather, I’m not buying that it’s truly “the last ride” of the season in TRF.

Regardless, I’m expecting that, if he’s there, Joey Hallstrom will buy everyone a round at the Black Cat. Can you confirm that Joey?



  1. These days the Best Western probably puts in their literature that they are “located next to the Black Cat on Hwy 32 South…..” It’s no longer necessary for directions to Joey’s bar, is it?

    Will the A/C crew be back from the dealer meetings in time for this?

    Buffalo River ISOC on Friday night, vintage days in TRF on Saturday…I smell a road trip this weekend.

  2. The Black Cat is the ideal spot for an Antique/Vintage Show. Great food and the walls are covered with Arctic Cat pictures from the past. If you’ve never been at this show in the past, Try to make this show if possable.

    John, I can’t believe you’ve never been to this show. I still have the old Arctic vest and hat to wear.


  3. Interesting to see Per and Marie get involved in sehtoming like this, I remember some years back they supported Amnesty International – I guess they perhaps still do. There is no doubt that childhood abuse is a growing and worrying concern worldwide and often happens behind closed doors where it cannot be seen and where children don’t have someone safe to speak to. I am all for organisations like this if the money raised goes to worthwhile causes and child protection.

  4. I have already coeemntmd on exactly this point in the exchange with Big TeX just two comments lower (earlier) before this exchange.The fact it’s non-event has to be evaluated in the context, relatively to other things that happened in the same country during the same interval. It makes no sense to compare damages done to the U.S. with the GDP of Honduras – exactly for the same reason why it would be demagogic to compare the energy released by a hurricane with the energy released in a supernova explosion. One may always find processes that are larger and processes that are smaller but this cheap fact guarantees neither that a process is a non-event, nor that it is not a non-event.It was a non-event for the U.S. because both the casualties and financial losses were negligible relatively to the background – what the U.S. is earning during the same period of time, and the number of people who die during the same time. That’s why it was totally wrong for the media and others to suggest that Hurricane Irene – or, now we can say, Hurricane Sandy – would change something profound about the life in America or wealth of America or something like that.In the U.S., twelve thousand people are born every day and seven thousand people die every day. So the total casualties of Irene – 49 folks, including those outside the U.S. – correspond to exactly 10 minutes of naturally dying people, 10 minutes of the background. That’s why the lost lives were a non-event at the level of America.Analogously, the U.S. produces $15 trillion in GDP per year. That’s $75 billion per working day (I consider 200 of them in a year). So $15 billion is just 1/5 of one working day, an hour or two of work. That’s why it was a non-event even financially.The term “non-event” doesn’t mean that the hurricane had a strictly zero impact. No observable event in the real world may have a strictly zero impact. It only means that the impact was negligible relatively to other, major things that determine the life of the nation, in this case the U.S. And I insist that the word “non-event” was an accurate description of Hurricane Irene and, as we seem to see now, of Hurricane Sandy, too.
