Whether you’re feeling the need for an early-summer snowmobiling fix, are interested in classic iron or are merely looking for something interesting to do on Memorial Day Weekend, we’ve got a plan for you: Attend the Snowmobile Hall Of Fame Classic Sled Roudup in St. Germain, Wiscsonsin.
The annual event, held this year on Sunday, May 27, draws classic sleds from throughout the Upper Midwest, and more than a few from more distant destinations as well. Like a lot of antique and vintage snowmobile shows, there will be prizes awards in a variety of categories (listed below), so the hard-core collectors can earn credit of their incredible restorations.
For most consumers, however, it’s a fantasy walk through the ages, remembering classic snowmobiles from days gone by, eyeballing race sleds that made history and stumbling across odd engineering fetes from brands you never heard about in the past. Open registration starts at 7 a.m., with judging from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. and awards presentations starting at 3 p.m. There will also be a sizable swap meet, with snowmobile related items new and old.
The presenting sponsor is Arctic Cat. All proceeds from the event go to benefit the hosting Snowmobile Hall Of Fame in St. Germain. For information visit www.snowmobilehalloffame.com.
