The Vikings narrowly missed out on an opportunity to play in Super Bowl XLIV, but that won’t deter the organization from participating in Arctic Blast XV this upcoming weekend at Lake Mille Lacs.
The 15th annual Minnesota Vikings Arctic Blast Snowmobile Rally, sponsored by MillerCoors Brewing Co., the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, Total Luxury Limousines and Arctic Cat, will feature current and former Vikings players, Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders, Viktor and team executives as the Vikings organization raises money for the Vikings Children’s Fund (VCF).
Arctic Blast XV is comprised of a full slate of events that includes snowmobile giveaways, free arcade play for kids, an ice fishing pond, outdoor BBQ, Karaoke and food/drink specials at various Blast Points throughout the day. There will also be numerous prizes and games for fans of all ages at Vikings headquarters at the Blue Goose Inn in Garrison.
On Sunday, a prize party will be held with more than $30,000 in prizes to be awarded, including a choice of a new Arctic Cat Snowmobile or ATV.
Current players scheduled to attend are TE Jeff Dugan, DE Ray Edwards, LB Jasper Brinkley and S Jamarca Sanford. Also, assistant coaches Derek Mason and Diron Reynolds will also join the festivities. A full list of alumni will be at the event, including Bud Grant, Jim Marshall, Scott Studwell, Joey Browner and Doug Sutherland.
Participants can register day of event at any of the 4 Blast Points located in Garrison, Onamia, Isle or Malmo ($35). For the list of Blast Points and more information, call (952) 828-6577 or visit http://www.vikings.com.
