WARM WEATHER AND STINGERETTES HEADLINE 15TH ANNUAL CUYUNA LAKES ICE FISHING CONTEST AND SCORPION HOMECOMING
One hundred and two Scorpion Snowmobiles were on display this past Saturday at the 15th Annual Cuyuna Lakes Ice Fishing Contest and Scorpion Homecoming. Several hundred participants enjoyed surprisingly warm temperatures and a strong showing of this year’s feature machine, the Gleaming Midnight Sun Magenta Stingerette and Super Stingerettes of 1972-1974. Seventeen of these beautiful and rare machines, the industry’s first-ever snowmobile designed, built and marketed exclusively to women, were on display.
And a heart-felt thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this another successful event, including: Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce, Sno-Serpents Snowmobile Club, Miss Crosby-Ironton Scholarship Pageant, Antique Snowmobile Society, and numerous family and friends.
