2C Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Snow treks at winter fun festival The 28th annual Winter Fun Festival, a major four-wheel drive event hosted by the California Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs, has been scheduled Friday-Sunday, Jan. 15-17, at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley. According to Frank Funk, one of the event organizers, Winter Fun will offer three dif- ferent historical and narrated sport utility vehicle trips and 10 separate 4X4 runs in the high Sierra for experienced drivers. He said Saturday's Frostbite Extreme trip is always a favorite for those seeking an experience in deep snow. "We'fully expect that we will have 600 participants joining us this year," said Funk, "so we highly recommend that people register as early as possible. "In addition to the various trips in the snow, we will pro- vide great meals beginning with the Friday night dinner through lunch on Sunday. In our large facility at the fair- grounds, we will feature indoor entertainment and recreation for children and adults." Bingo games will be fea- tured Friday and Saturday nights. Funk said his committee has two historical SUV trips scheduled Saturday, Jan. 16, and one additional SUV trip Sunday, Jan 17. In addition, the event fea- tures a Friday night moderate- ly difficult run that begins after dinner and seven other snow runs Saturday that range from the Blizzard Brigade in moderately deep snow to the Frostbite Express. Also in addition to the SUV run Sunday, Winter Fun offers the Snowcat and Iceberg trips, moderately difficult in unlim- ited snow depths. SUV owners will not require any special equipment and stock vehicles should have no difficulty in the snow using four-wheel drive, low range. "Our experienced trail guides have selected routes that are historically .signifi- cant, interesting, scenic and very safe for all makes and models of SUVs and other four-wheel drive rigs," said Funk. The Saturday Historical Tour will take guests to a num- ber of locations in Grass Valley, through the historic town of Rough and Ready to the famous Bridgeport Covered Bridge, and tour the historical mining towns of Goodyear's Bar and Alleghany. Another Saturday SUV trip provides participants with the opportunity to learn about the Empire Mine; tour many of the old hydraulic mining sites; dine at the historical Washington Hotel and ends at the Malakoff Diggins State Historical Park. Sunday's SUV trip permits participants to explore the middle fork of the Yuba River, visit historical Alleghany and ends at the Graniteville Road. Citizens Band radios are encouraged for all partici- pants but are not mandatory. Cost for any of the Winter Fun Festival trips is $85 for adults, $45 for children ages eight through 14 and kids seven and under are welcome free of charge. The cost includes all meals beginning with the Friday night dinner through lunch Sunday. Camping facilities with RV hookups and hot showers are available at the fairgrounds; call 273-6217.
