Snowmobilers in increasing numbers are discovering a new way to enjoy their riding — without the benefit of snow.
In fact, as the name implies, Watercross involves racing modified snowmobiles across ponds.
Dunraven residents Charlie Bush and his oldest son, Brandon, got their first taste of Watercross racing about a year ago and were immediately fascinated by the sport.
“I had heard about it, but never paid much attention. But the first time I saw it, I said I’ve got to try it,” recalled Charlie, a snowmobile enthusiast beginning his early teens.
