Sled/quad rally draws hundreds

Bentley was inundated with quads, snowmobiles, and trucks and trailers loaded with them, parked anywhere there was room on February 15.

Bentley was inundated with quads, snowmobiles, and trucks and trailers loaded with them, parked anywhere there was room on February 15.

The weather was wonderful, almost too warm, for the thirteenth Monkey Top Saloon sled/quad rally, and because the snow had settled during the previous two weeks of above zero temperatures, many more quads were able to participate than had been expected what with December’s record snowfall. There were 319 registered.

Monkey Top owner Becky Kasparsons was very pleased and a couple of days later was still recovering from the hectic activity.

Participants started going out just after noon from the Monkey Top Saloon, and after making a loop on Gull Lake, had to return to the Monkey Top by 5:00 p.m. to qualify for the five $1,200 prizes.

The high hand was won by Todd Blundell and the low hand by Ryan Goietz.

Three mystery hands were won by Shauna Sauer, Darren Tam, and Lauren Doucette.

The volunteers who helped out with the rally and people who support the Monkey Top and its events were acknowledged. Door prizes were handed out throughout the evening and there was live entertainment.
