Vintage snowmobiles and more get a showing at the 10th Annual Radar Run on West Alaska Lake in Kewaunee. The Lakeshore Vintage Snowmobile Association host its annual winter event on February 3rd with a dozen different divisions competing and include not just vintage snowmobiles but also modern snowmobiles as well as four-wheelers, motorcycles and ATVs. Participants purchase a ticket for three opportunities to run 800 feet to log in the fastest speed on a radar gun. Rick Siebold, member of the Lakeshore Vintage Snowmobile Association, says that many enjoy racing, showing and restoring vintage snowmobiles which are generally considered to be 1985 and older.
As the association is a non-profit, the majority of the proceeds from this and other hosted events are donated to various charities and local people in need.
