The Snowmobile Hall of Fame’s first ever classic sled round-up in St. Germain Wisconsin can only be called a huge success. Amidst the ever present fear of rain, almost 100 sleds were on display – a very good number for a first ever show.
The weather station was promising “driving rain” and “constant downpours” all day, but when I poked my head out of the hotel room, the sun was shining. The weather held just perfectly, only starting to rain as the awards ceremonies were starting early in the afternoon.
Chip Patterman won the award for “Best Arctic Cat”, a special award in recognition of the shows sponsor, Arctic Cat.
The Warnings showed up with about 12 sleds, and were more then happy to start them for the crowds that gathered. One of the highlights of the day was Keith and Brad firing up the Budweiser drag sled – an amazingly unique sled – unique sounding and very loud!

I have a whole bunch of photos to share late tonight – after I get a good solid long day in the garage to catch up on my projects, so stay tuned – there was some truly amazingly nice sleds at this show.
