Travelled an hour to Old Forge this morning to check out the Sno-Fest. All the 2008 models of all the major 4 WERE to be there. Brought my camera ready for some pics and had planned on posting them here when I got home.
All the Ski-Doos are wild looking and VERY light. They had a bunch of booths and were giving away free junk as was the Polaris booth and the Yamaha booth.
Well...............Artic Cat was NOWHERE to be found. Nothing........... there were HUNDREDS of people checking out these new 2008 sleds and there were a NO Arctic Cat stuff anywhere.
I talked with numerous Arctic Cat people like me who were PISSED.
The Ski-Doo people were very cordial asking us if we had any questions etc. and were really nice people.
I must say, in the last several years, I have lost an immense amount of respect for Arctic Cat and if it weren't for the Firecat series, I would have switched. Today only made it worse.
Helluva marketing job guys................
