Snowmobile show revs up this weekend

The 12th annual Rogers City Antique and Vintage Snowmobile Show & Vintage Ride are set for Friday and Saturday at the Knights of Columbus (K of C) Hall in Rogers City.

It’s the ideal location for snowmobile enthusiasts to rev up their machines and frolic out at the K of C grounds. The featured machine this year is Arctic Cat and organizers are expecting a nice turn out. It appears weather conditions will be a comfortable 32 degrees Fahrenheit, and the anticipated warm-up of next week will hold off until Sunday.
