Vintage Scorpion snowmobiles will crowd the ice on Serpent Lake in Crosby Saturday, February 2nd for this year's annual Scorpion Homecoming. Randy Harrison's father and grandfather with businessman Glen Guttsman started the Trail-A-Sled company in 1959. Harrison said several hundred collectors and vintage machine owners will have their snowmobiles on display. Harrison said machines from the earliest 'air sled' to the Scorpion Squadron races will be on the ice. Randy added that these aren't dusty old sleds that have been sitting in someone's back yard for the last 30 years but meticulously restored machines that in many cases look better now than they did sitting on the show room floor. The Scorpion brand was bought by Arctic Enterprises in 1978 and the Crosby plant employed 360 people in 1979 but fell on hard times and closed in 1980. The chamber will hold it's annual fishing contest at the same time, from noon to 3pm. Get more information about the Scorpion Homecoming at
