Press Release –
Ontario snowmobiling will get a major boost this year thanks to the new GO Snowmobiling Campaign spearheaded by the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC).
GO Snowmobiling promotes the lifestyle, experience and fun that trail riding offers Ontarians every winter.
Its purpose is to grow snowmobiling by attracting new participants, persuading former riders to return, encouraging casual snowmobilers to ride more — and by urging everybody to do their sledding here in Ontario.
“We are calling on everyone with a stake in snowmobiling and winter tourism to get on the GO Snowmobiling bandwagon, because every stakeholder will benefit from a healthier, more vibrant snowmobiling presence in Ontario,” said OFSC GO Snowmobiling spokesperson, John Blaicher.
Many of the biggest names in the snowmobiling industry have already stepped up to the GO Snowmobiling plate for this year’s campaign. The four snowmobile manufacturers — Arctic Cat, Polaris, Ski-Doo (BRP) and Yamaha — anchored the recent inaugural OFSC Go Snowmobiling Show in Toronto, where a host of other key industry players also demonstrated their support by exhibiting.
Meanwhile, the OEMs are also active in other exciting, soon-to-be-announced GO Snowmobiling projects, as are the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association (ISMA), Digital Video Productions, Skywords Radio Network, Baffin Inc. and Choko Design.
As another example of campaign support, the Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership (OTMPC) is promoting GO Snowmobiling in its space on each of the 2008 OFSC and OFSC district trail maps.
“No matter how big or how small your business is, there’s a place for you in GO Snowmobiling, even if it’s just to place the logo and link on your website,” concluded Blaicher. “So please contact me, because together, we can grow snowmobiling and that’s good for every person, business and community that depends on the $1.2 Billion that snowmobiling generates each winter.”
