We Need Groomer Help!

We get so many great compliments about our trails and want to maintain that reputation as we continue to build our club.  Unfortunately we just do not have enough groomers to keep up! 
 
For safety reasons, we need two people in a groomer at all times.  Even if you don't have an interest in driving, but are willing to ride along with the driver, we can use you!   Here's a quick overview:
 
166 miles of trails
34 routes each week x2 people for each route
~6.5 hours per route
 
Currently we only have 24 people, which means those 24 people are out there 2-3 times a week.
 
Please consider helping out and talking to anyone that may have an interest in helping.  Again - you do not need to drive and can just ride along.  If you want to drive, we will train you. 
 
Contact me for further information.

Brat Party - Thank You!

 

To all members and non-members of the Minocqua Forest Riders, who were able to join us on Saturday, 2/15 for the Brat Party - we would like to say thank you for supporting not only the club, but also Musky Shores!

It was so nice to see so many of you stopping by and bringing along new friends and family to the community! This is a great event for not only the club, but the  community too, and the winter weather was perfect for everyone that came out on a snowmobile (which there were a LOT of)!!

Whether you just stopped in for a beverage, a hot dog/brat or to socialize, we hope you all had a good time!  A paddle raffle was held every 20 minutes or so, and there were a lot of you that walked away with a few extra dollars in your pockets, and also helped make a contribution to the club!  Congratulations to all of the winners!

Without the support of everyone (Musky Shores, Trigs, patrons for their monetary contributions and volunteers that donated their time), this event would not be possible, so a big thank you to ALL!!

Hope to see many of you again this coming Sunday (2/23) for the snowmobile raffle drawing at Rustic Pines!

Equipment Maintenance Work Nights

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.

The snowmobile season is fast approaching.  In preparation, there are work sessions scheduled on Wednesday nights at the groomer shed which is located at the entrance of Minocqua Winter park.  The work sessions focus on preparing the equipment for the start of the season as well as providing necessary weekly maintenance throughout the season.  Club members are invited to participate.  Contact Bruce LaRose if interested at blarose@newnorth.net
