Millington, MI – January 15, 2009 – Promoter Pat Grzebinski, of popular Michigan Motocross track Baja MX, has teamed up with Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort to host the area's first Winter Action Sports event. The Event will be held at the beautiful Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant, Michigan on Valentines Day weekend, February 14th and 15th, 2009 and will include a $3,000 USASA Snowboard Rail Jam as well as a Snowboard Rail Camp by Pat Milbery.
With a partnership that may be the first of its kind, Baja MX Inc. and Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort have decided to host the area's first Winter Action Sports event. The "Freeze X Fest" event will be a combination of 3 separate venues to be run during the holiday of Valentine's and President's Day weekend. The $3,000 USASA Snowboard Rail Jam event will take place on Saturday, February 14th and will be complimented by a Snowboard Rail Camp coached by Red Bull Athlete Pat Milbery on Sunday the 15th. Other events include a $10,000 AMA Ice Racing Grand Championship and a Freestyle Snocross show featuring Jimmy Blaze and company.
"The Baja team is really excited to be part of this event, and come Valentines Day, we know that the athletes and fans will be too", says Pat.
Pat also added that with the steady decline in the economy, athletes and their families deserve more than just the racing and snowboard competition, they deserve to have a lot of fun too, which is why he sought out the help of Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort. Along with the 3 featured events, spectators will also enjoy: Hospitality and giveaways from a variety of event sponsors, an interactive Public Snow Luge, and other forms of live entertainment and special guests. Moreover, Yamaha will be on hand with a variety of new 2009 Snowmobiles for guests to hop on and ride around a huge rolling snow course. All this and more can be seen from Soaring Eagle's beautiful Casino and Resort, just a few hundred feet away.
"Soaring Eagle is happy to have Pat's experience in providing quality entertainment for racers, families, and fans alike, and we're honored to host such an exciting event", says Bill Masterson, Executive Director of Marketing, Sales and Entertainment.
Regarded as the largest Casino and Resort in the Midwest, Soaring Eagle's exceptional facilities will provide a great location for anyone who attends. A neighboring field of 50+ acres and a huge snow hill will more than accommodate the weekend's venues. Moreover, with a variety of over 500 rooms and suites, fine dinning and buffets, a huge gaming area, "Kid Quest" child care, and more, athletes, friends and family will have all the fun they can handle, both day and night.
