Who went? What did you think?

Went on Saturday and it misted/rained most of the day, but was bearable. Still a surprisingly decent crowd.

Thought it was put together well in such short time- plenty of vendors.

Hopefully this returns as an option to Haydays- Haydays just too darn far a drive for some of us.

I went today. Looked like a lot of swappers had left. It was a nice show for how quickly they threw it together. Would like to see it become a regular show but on a different weekend then haydays. I think most vendors would go to haydays if haydays was happening.

Great show.. Just think if they did not get the rain.

 

Hope they have next year in September...

Given the time they had to pull it together I thought it was good. Definitely some things that could be done better, but that’s to be expected. The rain was unfortunate.

I hope they do it again next fall. Either between Haydays and Wausau or between Wausau and the snow show in October.

It was a great show considering the situation. Friday crowd was very good and packed the hill spectator area on the front straightaway of the track for the night show. Brought back memories of the packed front straightaway during early derbies before they built the hot seats.

 

Talked to many people who were so glad they put on the weekend so there was actually something snowmobile related that wasn't cancelled. People there form all over the midwest.

 

Saturday's rain surprisingly didn't stop the people from attending. The crowd was very good considering, with lots of people carrying lots of purchases. Many swappers left early only because they sold most of their stuff on Friday and were done.

 

This event needs to continue on a different weekend next year.

 

Thanks to the organizers for a great event!

Despite the rain all day Saturday it was a fun event, would like to see it come back on a different weekend than Haydays next year, was fun to run into a few fellow Dootalkers, even a high-speed wave to Pit on the highway on the way home! 😂😂

We went on Saturday despite the weather it was a good time. Talking with other snowmobilers and the smell of 2 stroke gets you in the mood.
A pleasant surprise was meeting and talking to Steve Pallin. Kyle’s ( #324) dad what a nice person

It was a pretty good show overall. It would have been a lot better if the manufacturers were there! I did see an arctic cat tent set up but no Skidoos, Yamaha's or Polaris. Trackside was there but no 21' x's or xrs's. They had recieved a shipment of new sleds about a month ago and they are sitting in crates behind the dealership still!

My son and I went on Friday  was a decent show  for the 1st time I would say.  I was able get a deal on oil from Hexco,   37 bucks and a clutch holder from Big John.  Saw a few people I knew a few peoples did get a couple free beers all in all a great day.   Hopefully were all back at hayday  next year .

 

I  did say hi to Pit grunt  and meet a couple of his riding buddies

We sat next to Steve at Lake Geneva one year, great guy! A good friend of mine was Kyle's mechanic for several years.

I went to the show on Sunday, got there about noon. Wasn't much going on but l really didn't expect there to be by that time but would be nice for it to continue. Maybe they'll consider it if they enough support????

Must've been Jeff, great guy. Jeff got out of racing when they discontinued the mods, which is what Jeff loved...building engines and chassis'. The good thing for me is now we can ride together again.
