Cuyuna Lakes Ice Fishing Contest & Scorpion Homecoming
February 1 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join hundreds of anglers and snowmobile enthusiasts at the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber’s 16th Annual Ice Fishing Contest and Scorpion Homecoming on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 12 to 3 p.m. on Serpent Lake near Crosby’s Memorial Park.
The tournament boasts more than $1,000 in prizes for lucky or skilled anglers and prizes are awarded to fish of all sizes during the three-hour contest. Entry tickets are $10 for each hole and include the chance to win five raffle prizes. [Prize details will be added here shortly.] In addition, food and beverages will be sold in an ice-arming tent and there will be a raffle for numerous other prizes donated by the community.
Scorpion Homecoming dusts off wonderful old machines and recalls a time when the Cuyuna Lakes was among the largest snowmobile producers in the world. Numerous Scorpions will be on display and a trail ride is planned. The 2020 featured sled is the Range Whip, Scorpion’s popular mid-size sports machine. The homegrown Range Whip featured a two-seat configuration and powerful Cuyuna engine. All Range Whip model years (1976-1978) and engine sizes will be featured at the Homecoming, both original and restored. Special Range Whip commemorative buttons and other Scorpion memorabilia will be sold at the tournament’s on-ice warming tent.
New this year, to initiate the onset of the ice fishing contest, the Crosby-Ironton Chamber singers will perform the National Anthem on the ice, while being accompanied by the Ironton American Legion Color Guard. All proceeds from the tournament and Scorpion merchandise sales benefit the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber and will be used for marketing to attract visitors to the area.
Tournament tickets are available at the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber office in Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union in Crosby. They will also be sold at the event. Eager anglers are encouraged to monitor the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber Facebook page and www.cuyunalakes.com for more information including up-to-date reports on ice conditions.
