by Jennifer Jackman on December 18, 2015

Once again this year, Ojibwa Casinos of Baraga and Marquette will be our Title Sponsor of ALL the MASTERS Events this winter. As a great destination for snowmobilers to stay and play in the Baraga area, and the place for snowmobilers to go in Marquette, the Ojibwa Casino’s really is the Snowmobilers Casino! Ojibwa Casino in Baraga has a snowmobiles package that includes lodging and gaming that you simply will not believe! With the longest running snowmobile event for the MASTERS taking place at Marquette Mountain, it is great to have the support of the Ojibwa Casino in Marquette.

Ojibwa Casino Vintage Snowmobile Show and Swap: This will be on Saturday, Jan 30th.

Here are the classes:
Antique Snowmobiles (1968 and older), Classic Snowmobiles (1969-1979), Classic Snowmobiles (1980-1990), Race (1973 and older), Race (1974-1990), Current Race (1991-current), & Best in Show. Trophies will be awarded for 1st through 3rd place for each snowmobile class. Cash prizes will be awarded to those who are “Best in Show”. “Best in Show” will be determined by most votes cast. There will be (6) buckets set up at the PA trailer for spectators to vote.

Show registration is a $10 entry fee and will begin at 8am and end at 10am. Those who pay the entry fee will receive a $10 free play offer which will be valid until Sunday, January 31st. Admission for the general public will be free, those who attend will also receive a $10 free play offer. The show will be free for those who come to swap snowmobiles; vendors are also welcome to join and pay a vendor fee of $10.

I am hoping to have many of our racers display the race sleds at this show.
