North American Ice Fishing Circuit – Back for 2019
Happy New Year to all from Quicksilver. Sorry we’re a bit late but, just because its been winter doesn’t mean Quicksilver has not been busy. Quicksilver products aren’t just for water sports and boating. Nothing proves that more than contestants of the North American Ice Fishing Circuit (NAIFC). For the 3rd year in a row Quicksilver is delighted to sponsor the NAIFC and prove to its hardy competitors that Quicksilver fuel care and lubricants can handle the demanding conditions that they operate their ATV’s, UTV’s and snowmobiles in.
In December the NAIFC held its 2018 Championship and the first ever National Championship for High School Ice Fishing. Both events were held in northern Minnesota were temperatures and snow and ice can make operating and travel on ATV’s and snowmobiles difficult at best. Jack Baker the NAIFC tournament director stated that there was a “35 degree drop in 18 hours” for the first day of the high school championship.
So far in January the NAIFC and Quicksilver have traveled to 4 events stretching from Iowa and Minnesota to West Yellowstone and Hebgen Lake in Montana. The last week of January will find the NAIFC in the Wisconsin, the home state of Quicksilver. Check out the Upcoming Events link at http://goqcrew.com or at http://www.naifc.com/eventlist.php to see all the remaining NAIFC dates and locations.
In addition to providing exciting competition and rewarding payouts to ice fishing guys and gals and now qualifiers for a national high school championship, the NAIFC takes very seriously it’s task of introducing kids to ice fishing. Each NAIFC event holds a “Kids Ice Camp” where ice fishing fundamentals are taught in a classroom setting and then actual “on the ice”, “hands on” fishing is done with equipment provided by other sponsors of the NAIFC. As some of the posted pictures here can attest, nothing warms the heart more than seeing a smile on a parent and child’s face enjoying themselves outdoors.
We hope that you too can get out during the new year and enjoy whatever it is that makes you happy.
