Greenstone Loop Poker Rally
February 4, 2012 marked the 5th annual Greenstone Loop Poker Rally and once again it was a great success. The poker rally is put on by the Nakina Sno Club and connects the A 109 trail between Nakina, Longlac and Geraldton. 200 km of some best groomed trails in Northern Ontario. This year 88 sleds participated in the rally with riders from across the north and beyond, Hearst, Timmins, Marathon, Thunder Bay, Wisconsin were some of the visitors’. Riders from Geraldton and Nakina would do the loop counter clockwise and riders from Longlac did the loop clockwise. All riders met at the Nakina Community complex where a super and prize were awarded.
We also had the pleasure of having Dennis Burns of the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organization and Gord Linfield and Norm Lavoie, Snowmobile Trail Officer Patrol (S.T.O.P.) on hand. Even the Mayor of Greenstone, Ronald Beaulieu was out for a ride. We always have snow! And many organized tours flock to Greenstone to ride our trails every year.
Many volunteer hours are put in to host an even of this kind, Special thanks to Gaby and Dorene Boulanger for keeping the event going and fun. Buy where your ride. For more information on what Greenstone has to offer visit our web site at www.snowmobiling.greenstone.ca
