Deerbrook Bridge Runners Classic Snowmobile Cruise on February 1
January 8, 2020
Vintage and classic snowmobile owners and admirers are invited to take part February 1, 2020, in the 17th Annual Deerbrook Bridge Runners Classic Cruise in Neva Corners, Wisconsin. Neva Corners is located about five miles north of Antigo in Langlade County.
According to Doug Curler, club member and one of the event’s organizers, the state defines a “vintage” snowmobile as one that is at least 35 years old. On the other hand, there is no fixed definition for a “classic” snowmobile, Doug said, except for the fact that they aren’t new. “I would say that 50 percent of the sleds at the cruise are vintage or just not new,” he said. No matter how old the machine, however, “We welcome the older as well as the newest machines.”
The Classic Cruise will begin at approximately noon and finish at about 5 pm at Quinn’s Bar, N5298 County Road B, Deerbrook. Quinn’s is located at the intersection of County Road A and County Road B, just off Highway 45.
Doug notes that you don’t have to be rider to enjoy the event. He said that from about 9 am to noon, members of the public can view the Classic Cruise snowmobiles. Doug expects approximately 150 machines to take part in the event. The machines will be lined up across from Quinn’s and along the side of Hwy B, next to Quinn’s.
According to Doug, “Langlade County offers almost 500 miles of groomed trails. This cruise gives you the opportunity for five loops from two miles, for the older machines, to 70 miles for the newer. Registration begins at 11 am and the send-off is at noon. Maps of the routes are provided or riders can join a group with a leader. All riders are asked to return by 5 pm for a chance to win $100. This is part of the benefit of registering.” He added that “Antigo has several motels for your convenience, good eating places and some real nice downtown specialty shops.”
“After 5 pm, free food and refreshments are available (for those that registered for the event).” Doug said. “There will also be music and numerous raffles to enter. The big raffle will take place at 8 pm. First prize is a 1981, 440 Kawasaki Drifter sled or $500. Second prize is $300, third is $200, and fourth is $100.”
