Press Release –
More than 300 of the finest restored vintage snowmobiles from the sports golden heyday will be on display at the Better Living Center in West Springfield, MA, October 13 & 14, 2007.
Their proud owners are vying for the second Vintage Snowmobile Club of America (VSCA) National Championship, the highest honor in a popular hobby showcasing snowmobiles from the ‘60’s to the 80’s.
Historic snowmobiles from brands like Rupp, Sno-Jet, Mercury, John Deere, Scorpion, Speedway and dozens more will be represented alongside classic Arctic Cat, Polaris, Yamaha and Ski-Doo machines.
In addition, collectors will display memorabilia, clothing and other products. Vendor displays are added attractions and open to the public.
Admission is $8 per person (kids under 12 are free). The show opens to the public Saturday at 10:00AM, with the National Champion awarded at 8:00 PM following a buffet dinner.
The show continues on Sunday at 10:00 AM where attendees will be able to see the proudly displayed trophies of the winners.
“With vintage snowmobile collecting growing exponentially each year, the VSCA agreed that now is the time for a world class national show that awards a true National Champion,” said Mike Meagher, President of the VSCA. “Thief River Falls was the natural choice for the first annual event; it’s the hometown of Arctic Cat and very close to Roseau, Minn., hometown of Polaris and New England will continue this successful event as it was noted as the heart of oval racing and the birthplace of the VSCA.
Collectors throughout North America will attend the 2nd Annual event, showing original and restored snowmobiles.
