Press Release –
In the Open Trail Theatre at this month’s OFSC Go Snowmobiling Show, the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is hosting a series of leading edge seminars and presentations by industry leaders, plus a fast-pasted fashion show.
A wide variety of entertaining and informative topics make the Open Trail Theatre a must-attend destination at the OFSC Go Snowmobiling Show. In The ICEMAN Cometh , John Blaicher, one of Canada’s leading water and snowmobile safety experts, will jump into a giant tub filled with 750 lbs of ice and 250 gallons of water.
John will take the plunge to demonstrate how to rescue yourself or others from a sudden immersion in frigid water. Go Snowmobiling 101 will focus on need-to-know information to get started in snowmobiling, including rules and regulations, where to rent, where to ride, how to dress and who to call.
Traveling Light is a timely seminar conducted by the OFSC with information for snowmobilers on how to lessen their impact on the environment. Keeping Your Precious Cargo Right Side Up when Towing a Trailer is a not to miss session that addresses tire safety, the pre-departure safety checklist, hooking up and selecting a tow vehicle.
The OFSC’s Manager of Safety and Public Education talks about Keeping it FUN and Keeping it SAFE by making smart choices when snowmobiling. Driver Training – the Right Way is hosted by Laurie Trombley, OFSC Driver Training Coordinator and features the new OFSC interactive adult training DVD.
Ken Avann with the Canadian Snowcross Racing Association (CSRA) will inform snowmobilers about The Right Time and Right Place to Race! And the Ice, Fire and Fashion Show is an exciting and entertaining showcase of 2008 snowmobile gear and apparel.
Under one roof, the OFSC brings the major snowmobile manufacturers – Arctic Cat, Polaris, Ski-Doo and Yamaha – together with snowmobile enthusiasts for an amazing event.
