Beef-A-Rama Thank You!!

Sending a huge THANK YOU to so many of our members who were able to help the Lakeland Rotary with Beef-A-Rama!! It is no small task to set up, work the event, and tear down – it takes a LOT of people to make it happen!   Not only is this effort great for the community, IT’S A LOT OF FUN!  In fact, if you’re interested in signing up for next year (don’t worry about making a commitment this far in advance – we will contact you to check on your availability when we get closer), please contact:

·   John Ryan:  johnryanwi2016@gmail.com (Friday setup and/or Sunday teardown)

·   Sue Ramirez:  blackbearbar2012@gmail.com  (Saturday opportunities – shifts are 4 hours or less)

Lakeland Rotary receives requests each year from local non-profit groups asking them to join their organization to raise funds for the many projects they support.  In exchange for our volunteer hours, they make a large donation to our club.

There were over 2500 sandwiches sold in less than 4 1/2 hours & the beverage supply was depleted close to zero!!  Unused and frozen Ciabatta buns are available for purchase at Northwoods Foods/TJs Butcher Block.  The buns were a special order and cannot be returned.  If anyone is interested the cost is $3.00/6 pack or $5.00/2 packs or $20.00 for a case which contains 8 packs (7 cases are available).  Contact:  blackbearbar2012@gmail.com or 715.892.8182.

Upcoming Events

161 Miles of Groomed Trails

Help Support Our Trails

The Minocqua Forest Riders maintain 161 miles of snowmobile trails in the area. Our members are from many areas all over Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa & Michigan as well as throughout Oneida and Vilas Counties.  These legendary Northwood Trails are groomed almost daily with a priority for weekend traffic.  Our trail system connects Minocqua to Price County (Pike Lake Area) on the West, North to Lac Du Flambeau (Lake of The Torches Casino and Resort), East to Minocqua, Woodruff, and Lake Tomahawk, and South to the Willow Flowage Area!!!

Always remember to stay on the trail - many miles are private property, and land owners allow us to be there!  It is a privilege that can be taken away if we are disrespectful!!

Weekly Equipment Maintenance Work Days

Weekly nights for the remainder of the 2022 season will be changed to Wednesday's at 10:00a.  Please check the website calendar for updates/changes.

In support of our motto, “GROOMING FOR YOU IS WHAT WE DO”, the Minocqua Forest Riders remain committed to manage and maintain our scenic trails. To this end, there is a variety of equipment necessary to accomplish this annual responsibility. Current club equipment values $800,000. Maintaining this investment is important to ensure annual trail preparation and continued maintenance throughout the season.
