Brad Hulings Autographs Poster for Museum

On Feb. 28, 2010, Brad happened to be at the Newberry One Lunger race. He heard through the grapevine (thanks, Aaron) that he should come to the Museum, and he did come with his One Lunger crew and racers, Blake, Brett and Nick Wickerham. They won the Newberry race that day! He still has the touch, but these days, he's mostly building the sleds and lets the younger guys do the racing. Brad told us he moved to Minnesota from PA to work for Polaris and Scorpion in 1976. By 1979 and 1980, he was racing all over the U.S. and Canada, and even raced in Finland and Sweden. He then went to work for Bombardier. I'm sure Brad has many stories to tell, but he didn't have time that day. We're hoping to see him back here at the Museum soon. While he was here, he did autograph some posters for us to use as a fundraiser for the Museum. That is the only way he will sell any of them. If you are interested in purchasing one of these, please contact us for more information. We want to thank Brad & crew for visiting our Museum and helping to make Charlie's day! It was such a pleasure to meet such a humble, interesting guy.

On Sept 20, 2019, The Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum was awarded a grant of $12,500 for Operational Support from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA – ART WORKS). The grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of 561 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year 2019 funding. The grant requires a 1:1 match and helped the museum leverage the $12,500 of support from its annual income and the many donations from supporters. In particular the museum has received grants from the Graymont Community Economic Development Fund and the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. It has also received significant donations from the Antique Snowmobile Club of America, The Midwest Vintage Snowmobile Shows, Inc., many snowmobile clubs, several recreational and snowmobile shows, the museum’s internal $1,000.00 Challenge, and many museum members. The grant funds will be applied to museum operating costs. Applicable costs include internal operations, marketing, travel to shows within the State of Michigan and cost of employees. The MCACA peer review process allows for each grant applicant to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals. This ensures the taxpayers, who support this project through legislative appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences. A complete list of grant awards around the state is available by contacting MCACA at (517) 241-4011, or by visiting the MCACA website at
