The Top 5 Things You Should Bring to the Benna Ford Roush Superior Watercross Shootout

Nick Cooper/TSM Duluth

The 2nd Annual Benna Ford Roush Superior Watercross Shootout is coming to Barker’s Island on August 16th and 17th.  We expect everyone who was there last year to be back, but if this is your first year, you may wonder what you should bring to the event.

From my experience last year, here are five things you should remember to bring.

Sunscreen

 
 

You'll be spending a lot of time outside in a beautiful setting watching the races, and you don't want one of your memories to be a sunburn.

Get some great sunscreen and make sure to reapply every 4 hours or so to be safe.

Sunglasses

 
 

These are snowmobiles racing on the water and water tends to have quite a glare in the summer sun.  A couple days of squinting can lead to a headache or two, so sunglasses are a must.

Of course, you want to look cool anyway, right?

Ear Plugs

 
 

I preface this as one for those who are bringing the whole family.  This is a fun family event, but little kid's ears can be a little sensitive.  I've even seen kids plug their ears in a movie theater, so it can't hurt to have ear plugs on hand for them for once the engines start to go all out.

If you're bringing little kids, bring earplugs to be on the safe side.  If you don't need them, you can always use them when the kids make you take them to a One Direction concert.

Cash

 
 

While the draw of this event is the high speed racing, adding some food, beverages, and souvenirs will make your weekend complete.

You'll get thirsty and hungry while you're there and there will be plenty of food and drink, so bring cash to expedite the process of fulfilling your cravings!

You can't go wrong eating at vendors like Kosta's Gyros, Farley's Family Restaurant, 8th Street Ice Cream and Grizzly's.

Friends

 
 

While there is nothing wrong with going solo to partake in the festivities, if you do have some friends looking for something fun to do, have them join you for a day or two.

This is truly a "the more the merrier" event with great racing, music, food, drinks and fun.  It's also a lot more fun to hi five with another person.
