I drove tons to get there.. was disapointed at first because 1.5 hrs I was there one race was going on.. just as I was leaving more started going so I stayed longer and seen some good racing action.

3 bucks to park
10 bucks to get in

that part of it wasn't the cheapest show I have been too.

What did you all think? who took pictures?

$13 seems to be a rip off to me. I paid $8 to get into the Perry grass drags and seen non-stop action the whole time I was there. I was told the sled count was down because of HayDays going on the same weekend.

The club was there both days selling tickets. The crowd on Saturday SUCKED. that was the worst ever I think. It never rained there, but I guess it rained many other places so people didnt come.

Sunday was better, but ticket sales werent that great. Last year we sold 56 tickets, this year only 24. Oh well, at least we tried!

what am i missing.. I seen alot more then 24 people there.

are you talking them tickets for the big dollar giveaway?


Most people around me were bitching that the trophy thing in the track and taking soo long between races and not being able to hear classes and people standing along the fence and they couldn't see..


I heard it all.. there were alot of unhappy people where I was sitting.

We are selling raffle tickets for a first prize of: $4000 cash, or your CHOICE of sled or CHOICE of 4x4 ATV. Second place is a Triton Elite Trailer. We are only selling 500 tickets, $20 each. A GREAT deal.

I said we only sold 24 tickets, not that there was 24 peeps there. Holy cow, that would be bad!!! Yeah, I thought they took was too many breaks too. And I love to watch the kids, but what was up with the Kitty Cat class?? Holy cow, they were running laps!

I went Sunday with my 6 year old son and 10 year old daughter. I had a pretty good time, but it sure isn't like years past. I can remember going there back in the late 90's and the place was packed. 2 rows of venders from top to bottom, huge swap meet and used sleds, a corral of old vintage sleds..... not any more. Its a shame, because the track is really nice and the location is about mid-state. A good spot. Still some nice people there though. All in all, it beats sitting home.

Even the racer turnout was a little down. Don't know why? The event has a great payout. Bonus money in all classes. I agree with the fans lining the fence and not using the bleachers, sit down so everyone can see. The crowd was pretty good on Sunday. Oh yeah, I got a 2nd in my class, 2nd year in a row.

I went and although I agree that the turn out was far fewer than previous years I can not complain about the costs to park or get in. I look at it this way...all the organizations trying to make some $$$ here are either snowmobile related or good minded community organizations. $13.00 is not bad for all they do for us. Especially the volunteer FD's, etc. The food was reasonably priced I thought, as well.

I do wish some of the vendor's (especially the dealers) had more to offer.
