Woodford County Snowmobile Club

Dear Brian, Judy, Jamie, and Rusty,

I am sending you this e-mail as a thank-you and a question to all snowmobilers. First, I would like to ask my question; when was the last time you rode on table-top smooth trails and snow measured in feet, not inches? If your answer is I can't remember, then I know you haven't ridden in Ontario, Canada lately. I just recently returned from a 6 night and 6 day trip with Come Play in the Snow Inc., with Brian Pacello, as our guide. This trip started in Searchmont and had nightly stops in Wawa, White River, Marathon, Manitouwadge, Hornepayne, and Hearst, where on the last day we loaded our sleds on the snow train for the ride back to Searchmont. I know what you're thinking, just another guided tour. Wrong! This is my second trip with Brian and the gang at Come Play in the Snow and one thing I have noticed is how Brian tries to mix up many different riding styles, while taking you through some of Canada's most beautiful wilderness areas. About a week or two after returning home from my trip to Canada, I got my pictures back. As I looked at them, it hit me just how much we saw and all the things we did; it's almost overwhelming. Another thing I noticed, is how hard Brian and his crew (Jaime) worked to see that we were comfortable and had everything we needed to keep the snow adventure running smoothly. I almost forgot about all the great meals we had!  If you want the best dessert you will ever eat, ask for the Banana Fritter served at the hotel restaurant in Hornepayne; it's to die for. In closing, on behalf of all of us from the Woodford County Snowmobile Club that were fortunate enough to take the Come Play in the Snow Guided Wilderness Adventure Tour, a big thank-you to Brian and crew!

Dear (Come Play in the Snow) Bryan and Crew,

Greetings from the Woodford County Snowmobile Club and the F.B.I!!! We made it back to Germantown Hills, IL safe and sound. For all of us, it seems like it took at least a week upon returning home for all of the places we visited and the things that we saw to fully sink in. 1 knew this was going to be the trip of a lifetime, but it takes coming back together and comparing pictures and stories to really appreciate what a great vacation package that your organization put together for our group. Thank-you for picking such great places for us to stay each night. Also, as you might have noticed the F.B.I, likes to eat and everyone was in agreement that the food was the best. (I suggest to your future tours to pick the fried banana fritter dessert. It is the best!!!) If we ever hear of anyone planning a trip to Canada we will highly recommend your tours as one of the best. In closing, Brian, thank-you for including me on the tour with such short notice and showing the whole group how great people from Canada treat newcomers. We cannot wait to book a trip with your company again.


Thanks for a Great Time!
Your Friends of The Woodford County Snowmobile Club,
Vice President and The F.B.I.
