To Quyon and back

The 12th annual Old Sled Run and Vintage Snowmobile Show made its way into Quyon on Sunday, bringing out close to 100 sled heads for a rip across the river. Pictured: Brodee Campbell and Liam Dowe of Quyon pose with their machines.
The run drew 89 participants who came from as far as Bridgewater, N.S. Starting out in Constance Bay, Ont., the riders made their way to Gavan’s Hotel in Quyon to show off their machines, then headed back across the river.
John Glinski, the oldest rider at the Old Sled Run on Feb. 18, made the trek down from North Bay for the event. His ‘67 Ski-Doo was the second-oldest sled on the run. “It runs pretty rough,” he said.
Vincent Lamothe of Luskville shows off his '72 Bobcat SS that ended up netting him second place in the Resto-mod category. This was Lamothe's first time at the Old Sled Run and he said he enjoyed it.

On Feb. 18, a pack of snowmobilers fired up their old Super Twins and sent it across the Ottawa River from Ontario, roaring into Quyon around mid-day. The 12th annual Old Sled Run and Vintage Snowmobile Show, as it is known, attracted 89 riders and machines from every conceivable era.
Participants started out in Constance Bay, Ont. with a fundraiser breakfast at the West Carleton Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, hosted by Ottawa Ward 5 Councillor Eli El-Chantiry. They then mounted their snowmobiles and headed for Gavan's Hotel.
