Volunteers Needed for Set-Up/Tear Down at Beef-A-Rama








The club is putting together work crews to help the Minocqua Area Rotary Lunch Club Set-Up and Tear-Down large tents they use to serve food and beverages during Beef-A-Rama on Saturday, September 25th (09/25).

The club has been doing this for at least 4 years now and it’s a great partnership. The Rotary Lunch Club has given us a donation of over $3,000 for our assistance in this activity and for helping to serve food during the event (Sue Ramirez is organizing this group) for the past two year.

I’m in charge of organizing two work crews as follows:

1.    Set-Up Crew: Meet at Chicago Street in downtown Minocqua on Friday, September 24th (09/24) at 9:00 AM. The crew will go to the storage facility and load the tents on trailers and set them up at the site.

2.    Tear-Down Crew: Meet at Chicago Street in downtown Minocqua on Sunday, September 26th (09/26) at 9:00 AM. The crew will take down the tents and return them to the storage facility.

We also need to find several large trailers that can be used to hall the tents from the storage shed to the site. I’m also looking for a team leader for both Friday and Sunday to work with Fritz (Lunch Club Contact) to organize the process. I’m going to be out of town that weekend. It would be great if someone who worked on this project in the past volunteer to take on this roll.

Please reply to Curt Christensen at 608.632.2492 or curtolaf@me.com (include your telephone number) if you’re interested in volunteering for this event as follows:

·  I want to be on the Set-Up Crew

·  I want to be on the Tear-Down Crew

·  I want to be on Both Crews

·  I have a trailer that I can bring for hauling (specify which day).

Thanks for considering to be a volunteer for this project. This is one of our largest revenue generating activities that we participate in each year.

Digital Advertising Opportunities

The Minocqua Forest Riders are pleased to offer a selection of digital advertising opportunities for local business owners. Last season, we were averaging over 60 visits a day to our club home page and saw over 8,000 visits between 12/1 – 3/31/21. The Trail Report page saw even more visits as all those riders enjoy looking at the snow reports. This is a great opportunity for you to take advantage of being seen by all of these visitors during the winter months. If you’re interested in supporting the club while also leveraging our website for business opportunities, you can contact our Map Committee Chairperson (Carrie) at caleinonen@gmail.com or through our website at minocquaforestriders.org


Thank You Spring Roadside Cleanup Crew!!

Spring Roadside Cleanup 05-15-2021

A big “thank you” goes out to the team of 14 who came out Saturday, May 15, 2021 to help clean-up the 1.3 mile Adopt-A-Highway stretch of road!  Despite the early rain, the group collected 23 bags of garbage along both sides of Highway 70W from Mercer Lake Road to Kilawee Road.  Last fall, we collected 15 bags, so more litter bugs around the last 7 months to keep us busy!  The highway sure looked better by the time we got done, so thanks to everyone that helped to keep the Northwoods looking good!

The Fall Roadside Cleanup is currently planned for Saturday, October 9, 2021.

Our volunteers were:

  • Jan Homuth
  • Sharon Harkins
  • Gloria Tamms
  • Ed Marshall
  • Wendell Koplitz
  • Kathy Koplitz
  • Al Matthews
  • Keith Warning
  • Jim Nicholson
  • Eileen Ryan
  • John Ryan
  • Jerry Wakefield
  • Jim Heller*
  • Ron Mihm

* Special thanks to Jim for playing “garbage man” helping to collect bags while riding on the tailgate of my truck!

166 Miles of Groomed Trails

Help Support Our Trails

The Minocqua Forest Riders maintain over 166 miles of snowmobile trails in the area. We have members throughout Oneida and Vilas Counties, as well as from many other areas all over Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, and Michigan. These  Legendary Northwood Trails are groomed several times a week 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!!!

Equipment Maintenance Work Nights

Weekly work nights will take place on Tuesday's starting at 4:30p.  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.
