    SHOF Looks to Break Ground on New Building

     The vision of a beautiful new building that displays historic snowmobiles and memorabilia is almost ready to happen at the Snowmobile Hall of Fame (SHOF) in St. Germain, Wis.  With the Classic Sled Roundup weekend festivities just one week away, the SHOF hopes meet its building fundraising goal before hosting a groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday, May 27.

    “We are so close to our goal of $350,000 that we can taste it,” said Craig Marchbank, SHOF President. “Thanks to so many generous donors, we’re on the cusp of being able to break ground on what will be a magnificent 60x100-ft., two-story building adjacent to our current building. With one last push, and a few spare dollars from those who are able, we’ll put shovels in the ground for this important showcase of snowmobile history.”

    A donation to the SHOF building fund this week will help ensure that the Hall’s vast collection of snowmobiles, displays, archives and history will be seen in its entirety, free of charge to snowmobile fans who come to see many of the most historic machines from the past five-plus decades.

    Donations can be made quickly and easily on the SHOF website. Building plans can be viewed there as well.

    “Give what you can this week,” Marchbank encouraged. “If our goal is recognized, then we will host a groundbreaking ceremony at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday at the Hall, and ask everyone to join us for what will be a historic event.”

    The scheduled groundbreaking will help kick off the festivities for the 14th Annual Classic Sled Roundup (May 27-28) in the St. Germain Town Park. This event features vintage snowmobile displays and a premier swap meet in a fun, festive atmosphere.
