Lake snowmobilers honored


Three members of the Lake Tahoe Snowmobile Association attended the 22nd annual California/Nevada Snowmobile Convention in Bakersfield, Calif., on March 2 and 3. Attending were Al Bartley, Harry Howard and Jac Lyn Howard.

Many CNSA members joined in a snowmobile ride on Friday to Sherman Pass, located one hour above Kernville in the high Sierra Nevada mountain range. Everyone reported having a wonderful time. Friday evening started with dinner at the Buck Owens Palace and included the show and dancing.

Awards were presented at the banquet dinner with Lake Tahoe Snowmobile Association taking home four awards. The club came back with the “Snowmobile Club of the Year” award for their efforts to promote good fellowship, safety, public goodwill and provide a voice for the individual snowmobiler in all matters relating to the sport of snowmobiling.

Longtime member Jac Lyn Howard was presented the “Snowmobiler of the Year” award for all her hard work over the years and playing a major role in getting funds for the new warming hut at Blue Lakes. Bob Brown received “Snowmobiler Safety Award of the Year” for his efforts in making sure all snowmobilers are aware of good safety practices. Al Bartley received special recognition for being a “Dedicated Snowmobiler” and longtime involvement with CNSA and time spent devoted to the sport of snowmobiling. Fred Wiley, president of the Sugarloafers Snowmobile Association, took home the “Most Dedicated Snowmobiler” award and Oly and Kate Oleson received the “Floyd Hudson Award.”

The convention united two states of snowmobilers from all walks of life to promote and provide a larger voice to be heard for the continuous betterment of the sport of snowmobiling.
