(ISC) will be held at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center,
2040 Airport Drive, Green Bay, WI,
on June 6-8 and is being hosted by the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile
ISC is held once a year to bring snowmobilers from the U.S., Canada,
Sweden and Russia together
for three days of meetings and exchanging of ideas. The event will include
meetings of several organizations including the International Snowmobile
Council (ISC), the American Council of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA), the
Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations (CCSO), the International
Association of Snowmobile Administrators (IASA), the Internal Snowmobile Media
Council (ISMC), the International Snowmobile Tourism Council (ISTC) and the
Iron Dog Brigade.
The Radisson Hotel is located on the west side of Green Bay, right across the road from the Austin Straubel
It is connected to the Oneida Casino, offering plenty of gaming opportunities.
The hotel is providing a very economic nightly room rate of $80 (plus tax). You
are invited to come early or stay late at the same rate. There is plenty to see
and do in the area.
Full registration for the event is $225 if paid before April
1, 2013. Registration includes a welcome reception on Wednesday evening. The
opening ceremonies will be held on Thursday morning and a speaker will be
featured at each breakfast. Numerous educational seminars on a variety of
topics will also be available. Any event in Green Bay wouldn't be complete without a trip
to the famous Lambeau Field and the Packers Hall of Fame.
With the expected large group, attendees will not be able to
participate in the stadium tour, but you are welcome to take the tour on your
own while you are in town. On Friday evening, the groomer companies will
sponsor a reception that includes dinner, followed by hospitality put on by the
Colorado Snowmobile Association, hosts of ISC in 2014. It all concludes with a
banquet on Saturday night with the national awards presentations. Of course,
the Thirsty Dogs will convene following the banquet.
