So…what’s the big announcement?
Maybe Kirk Hibbert, Brad Pake and Brian Sturgeon returning to competitive racing?
In front of 1,000 or so people, Jerry Bernardo will make a hugely-unintended, off-color remark to Lissa Toncray?
Snow Goer magazine will retract their Noontime, from-the-fire-truck announcement that the Ski-Doo MX Z TNT ACE is their 2011 sled-of-the-year, and will instead give the award to the F8 Sno Pro LE?
Arctic Cat is purchasing the intellectual property of Redline snowmobiles, and will bring to market the first snowmobile that doesn’t use a rear snowflap?
A public humiliation of the roughly 12,587 people who accidentally went to the old site location in Columbus Township?
Hmm… excellent possibilities.
But here’s what I know for sure: There will be a celebrity wedding taking place in the Arctic Cat Display booth at 1pm. No dress code will be enforced. Not sure if there’s an open bar.
From 1-3 pm many Team Arctic Snowmobile racers will weild a Sharpie during the autograph signing. This will be THE place to get the newest Team Arctic poster signed by Tucker Hibbert, Dan Ebert, Brian Dick and many others.
In addition to the race dudes, the following race sleds will be on display: Tucker Hibbert’s ISOC-dominating SnoPro; Dan Ebert’s I-500 winner; the Soo I-500-winning SnoPro from Cadarette racing; Brian Dick’s USCC Pro 600 champ; and several others. I doubt the F5 that I rolled twice on day-one of the 2008 I-500 will be there, but you never know for sure.
NASCAR fans rejoice! The #1 Bass Pro/Arctic Cat race car driven by Jamie McMurray will be on full display. The car will be fired up every hour!
And as always, Arctic Cat will serve up free Neon Green popsicles. I’m also hoping for buffalo jerky.
