Snowmobile winners announced by NOWECOS

The Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club announced the winners of its annual snowmobile raffle, with two lucky men walking away with brand new snowmobiles to call their own.

John McNary, of Bedford, Texas, won top prize — a 2014 Arctic Cat M8000 Snow Pro Snowmobile — while Eban Abshire, of Grand Junction, took second place, a 2014 Arctic Cat ZR 120.

NOWECOS sold raffle tickets at local businesses to raise money for scholarships it gives to local youths each year. The club thanked the Centennial Mall, City Market, MJK, Murdoch’s and Walmart for allowing it to sell tickets there. Rocky Mountain Machinery also provided the display snowmobiles to help with sales.

Another major NOWECOS fundraising event, the Poker Run, is coming up Jan. 18. The Poker Run begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Freeman trailhead north of Craig, and proceeds go to the local student scholarship fund.
