Rock Valley — There’s going to be a snowmobile race in Rock Valley. That sounds like something we should be announcing in January. But there’s a twist. These snowmobiles are going to be racing on WATER.
We talked with Kelly Roder, who’s one of the individuals helping with what they call the “Rivers Bend Shootout”, and he tells us what’s happening.
He says there will be plenty of racing action, with cash payouts for the winners.
And the action continues the next day, he says.
He says the venue is the Rivers Bend Campground ponds. He says the area used to be the Van Zee gravel pits, and the City of Rock Valley has transformed it into a nice campground and some ponds.
He says most of the riders are from up north, but one of their club members is taking part.
Roder says there will be food vendors available on-site, and there isn’t a bad seat anywhere around the pond. Again, that’s the Rivers Bend Shootout this weekend at Rivers Bend Campground northwest of Rock Valley. Check out their Facebook page for ticket prices and other details.
