Dear Grantsburg Watercross displayer,
July 19-21, 2019 will mark the 43rd Annual World Championship Snowmobile Watercross held at Memory Lake in Grantsburg, WI. The Grantsburg Youth Hockey Association will again organize and host the largest open water snowmobile race in the USA!
We ask that you please complete registration by June 1, 2019 so that we can reserve your site. In the event we do not receive your payment by the June 1, 2019 deadline, we will add a $75 fee to your registration. After this time, we will offer your site up to one of the vendors we have on our waiting list.
You will be given (2) adult weekend admission wristbands for sites reserved up to 40ft. Sites 40ft – 80ft will be given (3) adult weekend wristbands. Food vendors will receive (2) wristbands regardless of site size. Wristbands and vendor packets will be distributed upon arrival and ALL vendors are required to check into the Command Center.
Be reminded we DO NOT allow vehicles parked in your vendor space so only reserve enough space for your pop-up or trailer including the tongue and rear swing doors as space is very limited. We will reserve a parking area for your vehicle near the campground bathrooms.
Vendor set up starts at 9:00 am Thursday morning, July 18. You MUST be set up and ready for business by noon on Friday, July 19. Displayers will not be allowed to tear down until all racing is complete on Sunday, July 21, so please plan accordingly.
As always, our Memory Lake race site do NOT allow any carry-on alcohol, so be prepared to have your vehicle searched upon entry, if requested.
All food vendors must ensure they have a valid food license that can be provided upon check in.
We are looking forward to another great year and we are excited to have you return. Your participation is what helps to make this a great event!
Please click on the link attached in the e-mail you received to reserve and pay for your site.
