Snowmobile event rescheduled

 

Snowmobile event rescheduled

    Due to a lack of snow, the Iowa Lemans Championship - Jack Helgren Memorial Race scheduled to take place this weekend has been rescheduled for Feb. 10-11.
    “The Jack” weekend is filled with family-friendly snowmobiling fun, beginning with a guided snowmobile cruise around the lake Friday, highlighting many of the area’s

eating/drinking establishments, fun and historic places.  Saturday features snowmobile racing, including Lemans style racing and radar runs.  The races consist of vintage through current snowmobiles with many classes, including a class where the rider and age of the rider and sled must add up to 80 (the older you are, the newer the sled you can ride) and a ladies only class.
    There will also be a Vintage Snowmobile Show, food tent and auction for a vintage restored 1977 Ski-Doo.  
    The event is a memorial to Jack Helgren, an area businessman, avid snowmobiler, dealer, racer and promoter of snowmobiling in the area.  This is the third year of the event.
