January 20, 2000
Seeley Swan Pathfinder
Seeley Lake, Montana

Twenty-five riders left Seeley Lake Tuesday morning on part of the 10th annual snowmobile ride for Multiple Sclerosis. The riders had left Eureka a couple days before and spent Sunday night in Columbia Falls. They were treated to dinner here by the Driftriders Monday evening and stayed the night before heading off toward Lincoln right after this photo. The TransMontana ride covers 600 miles, ending in West Yellowstone. At left is Ron Ogden, Seeley Driftrider president who led the group to Lincoln. Seated on the snowcat is Dan Fargo of Great Falls; on his right is Char Caber of Kalispell and on his left is Les Green of Bozeman. These three riders are victims of multiple sclerosis. Immediately in back of the sled at center are Doug Franklin, executive director of the Montana State Snowmobile Association which sponsors the ride and Sue Pencoske, western regional director for MSSA. At right is Rene Jacobson who was in charge of the ride for MSSA. Last year $16,000 was raised for the Multiple Sclerosis Association. The goal this year is $20,000.
