President’s Message: Hi Members, The snow and cold have come and it has been a good old fashion winter. I hope everyone has had a chance to get out and enjoy it. Some of my favorite thing to do outdoors in the winter has to do with snowmobiles, skis, and snowshoes. Just being outside in the winter is refreshing for me. I think it’s because everything is so pristine even the air is crisp and clean. So please get out and enjoy our trails. They are in great shape and should be enjoyed by all. I would like to thank our members who have been working hard on keeping our trails in tip top shape. Remember “Ride Safe” Greg
TRAIL REPORT: Trail report could include that the two groomers were not in service this week while we added better lighting at the rear of both groomers…we had two very busy weekends with many snowmobilers taking advantage of great weather. Thanks to the operators, we have received very nice compliments on the condition of our trails! One reminder to the operators: be very careful not to bring snow across driveways and intersections. Always check when you cross the driveways and roads. We have had a great winter and hope that trails stay in great condition. If you have some time to help on the trails or see a problem, please call Jim at 715-635-8661.
We need a caption for this photo! Bring your suggestion and we’ll judge them at the next meeting.
