July 2014 Newsletter

Trail update… things are happening … culverts plugging… trees falling… trying to get caught up on replacing a couple gates… signs are always a problem in a couple areas… I wish we could catch them in the act!

Thanks for helping us catch up you good trail patrollers!!   Grader is sporting new heavy-duty rear tires…I dare them to blow out!!                                                                  Fitz

Equipment update… The ATV trail grader has new grader blades, wear pads, rudders and heavy duty tires installed for the summer and fall grading. Some welding of cracks in the frame also completed. Hopefully it will not give us any problems.                                                                                                        Floyd

Fall ATV Ride… I have reserved 5 rooms in Clam Lake for Saturday, September 20th. This was all they had available. Price is $69 plus tax. We will make final arrangements later, but we will need to leave Spooner by 8 on the 20th, we’ll leave our vehicles in the parking area north of Loretta and make the trek towards Clam Lake, roughly 40 miles. We will plan to eat at the Elk Horn across the street from the hotel. Make our way back down on Sunday.  At one time, the Dead Horse was rated the #3 trail in the nation. It has been “tamed” considerably since then, but it still has its spots!4 rooms have 2 queen beds and 1 room has a double bed with a futon. The $69 is for two people in the room. Each extra person adds $5. There is a 48hr cancelation notice.Here is the link to the website: http://clamlakejunction.com/

I won’t be at the July 2nd meeting so look for the sign up sheet going around and we’ll figure out room arrangements.                                    Craig
