Vintage snowmobiles return

Galusha, with some help from the Warrensburg Wrestling Club, has lined up 80 corporate sponsors, primarily in the construction and transportation industries regionally.

The sponsorship means that cash purses for the races are substantial, and proceeds can benefit the activities of the wrestling club.

Top cash prizes go to the three premier races, a 340cc Free-Air (air-cooled) Super-Stock, a 440cc Free-Air Super-Stock, and a Modified/Combination Class.

Details on the various classes can be found at www.nnyvsr.com.

Warrensburg Wrestling Club President Lenny Baker said his group sponsors the local wrestlers in a variety of ways, and boosts the sport, even saving money that taxpayers in the Warrensburg Central School District would otherwise have to bear.

The Club has bought wrestling mats and other related equipment for the schools, plus purchases uniforms for wrestlers on a limited budget. Also, the club shoulders expenses for travel to meets and tournaments, on behalf of wrestlers from 4 years old through high school.

The Vintage Snowsled races are the Wrestling club's biggest fundraiser, he said. Local wrestlers help conduct the event by setting up the race tracks on Echo Lake and manning the parking areas for the event.
