NW Angle Edge Riders Snow Rally Feb, 29, 2020
The Northwest Angle Edge Riders Snowmobile Club will hold their 19th annual Snow Rally on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at Sportsman’s Oak Island up at the NW Angle. Follow the ice road from Young’s Bay, or ride snowmobile across the lake from the surrounding communities – watch for the rally signs.
Lake of the Woods has excellent marked and groomed trails coming up to the NW Angle from the Wheeler’s Point area at the mouth of the Rainy River as well as on the west side of the lake from Arnesen’s Rocky Point and Warroad.
Nice trails across the lake make it possible to stay or park on the south end of the lake and sled up for the day. The trail to Sportsman’s Oak Island is about 42 miles, but a fairly easy drive.
Sportsman’s Oak Island is know for it’s good food and Rally Day will be no different. Enjoy smoked pork shoulder with all of the delicious sides.
There are activities happening all day. Do you have a fast sled? Perhaps you want to take part in the radar run. For those who think they are tough, try the “goose bump jump” where you jump into the icy waters of Lake of the Woods. I dare ya! Once you jump in, warm up by the community bonfire. There will be outdoor games and a tent near the lodge, raffles during the day and certainly lots of great camaraderie! Don’t leave the kids behind as there will be kid’s activities and this is a family event.
The Sportsman’s Oak Island staff is excited to welcome all and to support a good cause. The Angle locals take their winter recreation seriously, and the Snow Rally is the pinnacle of the winter season!
This event is a lot of fun and not only celebrates the culture of snowmobiling in the north woods but is also a fundraiser for the snowmobile club. This year the prizes are impressive including a brand new Polaris snowmobile along with a variety of other prizes.
The NW Angle Edge Riders do a wonderful job of keeping trails properly marked and groomed. The NW Angle and all of Lake of the Woods with the Lake of the Woods Drifters snowmobile club on the south end of the lake create some of the best trail riding around. Known much more for it’s walleyes, snowmobiling in the region is world class but often get overshadowed. If you are a snowmobiler, come up and check out beautiful sledding without the traffic!
