Golden Triangle Snow Rush Event


Golden Triangle Snow Rush Event
March 7 & 8, 2020
In Partnership with Teen Challenge Alberta

March 7 & 8th marks our second annual Snow Rush Event. We are super excited to be hosting this event with the snowmobile clubs of Swan Hills Snow Goers and Fox Creek Northland Sno-Goers. Our event partnership with Teen Challenge is in promotion of the trail system and encourages people to ride for a purpose, which is the fight against addiction that affects so many people we know and love.

Our intent is that people get out and ride on the Golden Triangle during this weekend. We hope that riders will participate in the cause and will attend the dinner on Saturday evening which provides hope and encouragement to students who are currently in the Teen Challenge program. This year, we have 3-three people from Whitecourt area who are in the program – which consists of 25% of the intake for the centre right now. Did you know that the success rate for Teen Challenge is 55% after 5 years of being free from the addiction; there is hope for many individuals and their familes. Please come and support the cause. We are holding a dinner on Saturday, March 7 at 7:00pm at the Seniors Hall, catered by Mama Gray’s Kitchen – $35.00. If you are interested in riding or attending dinner please register online at www.tcsnowrush.ca or please call Cindy at 780-706-5267 for more information.

This event is also the 4th Event on the Golden Triangle as a part of the Iron Sledder (4/4 rallies) and Golden Sledder Challenge (3/4 rallies). If you have not registered for this challenge and you qualify as you have rode in the rallies in Fox Creek, Swan Hills and Whitecourt, please contact Cindy to register for your medal and presentation. Presentations will be made at the Teen Challenge dinner. If you are unable to attend the dinner and qualify for the medal, please contact Cindy to be presented with the medal for your challenge at another time and location.

A big thank you to our Golden Triangle Consortia that is our main funding partner for the Golden Triangle and is made up of the Towns of Whitecourt, Swan Hills and Fox Creek and Woodlands County, MD of Greenview and Big Lakes County.
