September 2016 Newsletter


 


Dear Members,


 


It is hard to believe that the summer has slipped away, but it has.  With that said it is time for membership renewals.  Enclosed is the membership renewal form for 2016/2017 for you to fill out and mail to the club’s PO box address or bring to a club meeting. In order to keep the craziness from last year to a minimum I will only be submitting memberships to the AWSC twice a month as the AWSC was overwhelmed with way too many submittals from the clubs.  That means you need to plan ahead and not wait until snow flies to renew your membership so you can get your reduced Trail Pass.  So how do you know if your membership has expired?  First you should have already received your September issue of Wisconsin Snowmobile News magazine in the mail.  If not, it is expired.  Second you can email or call me and I will tell you when it expires.  


 


To obtain your $10 discounted Wisconsin Trail Passes you need to be a current member of a club and can be ordered anytime using the following methods: call the AWSC office at 1-800-232-4108, online at www.awsc.org/Trail-Pass-Registration, or mail in the attached form.  You can only obtain the discounted trail passes through the AWSC.  So that means you CANNOT go to a local business such as Fleet Farm with your club membership and buy a discount trail pass, businesses have to charge the full $30 price for the trail pass.  Only your on-line receipt for the trail pass will allow you to ride legally for 3 weeks to allow time for the trial pass to arrive in the mail. 


 


Don’t forget about our Lakewood weekend September 23 – 25th where we stay at members’ cabins or camping.  This is always a fun time as Nancy Ollendorf always has something planned to keep us busy and laughing.  We will need a final headcount as to who is going by the club meeting September 20th.  If you can’t make the club meeting and you want to go, please let me know before the meeting so we get an accurate head count.  See you there!


 


The September club meeting will be held September 20th at the Round Em Up in Mishicot at 7PM in the back room.  All future club meetings will also be held there until next summer unless otherwise stated. 


 


Don’t forget about our last Adopt-a-Hwy on Wednesday, September 21st at 5pm.  Last time we were able to complete this in about one hour as we had a lot of help.  See you there. 


 


Upcoming events:


  • County Alliance Meeting September 14th, Meat’s Opera Haus in St. Nazianz

  • Club Meeting September 20th  at Round Em Up  @ 7PM

  • Adopt-a-Hwy, September 21th, meet at Hwy V and East Shore Road Road-side clean-up @ 5PM

August 2016 Newsletter


 


Dear Members,


 


Well another Riverfest has come and gone.  Thanks to a lot of hard work by numerous individuals it was another successful event.  I cannot even begin to mention individuals by name as I would surely miss someone, but I do want to give credit to the extended Musil family.  They were there through everything from setup to tear down, operating the pull track to organizing the Cow Pie event.  Rod even gave a ride to a family from Illinois that got lost on the golf course trying to walk back to Fox Hills hotel.  Yes, the Musil’s helped with it all.  I also want to thank some new sponsors of Riverfest.  Jesse Vane obtained two Gators from Riesterer & Schnell to be used by us and Jessica Stevenson and Laurie Musil were able to secure a $500 donation from Kwik Trip for Riverfest.  


 


Prior to Riverfest we had our second Adopt-a-Hwy event.  We had an excellent turnout which allowed us to get it done in record time and have time to relax afterwards.  There is one more event this year on September 21, starting at 5PM.    


 


Now that our hard work for the summer is over it is time to recharge before we start to gear up for Winter.  One way to do that is to enjoy a Lakewood Weekend September 23 – 25th and have some fun with the club.  While I have not talked to Nancy Ollendorf as to what she is planning but I know there will be plenty of laughs and fun that weekend.  We will be getting a final head count in early September for the weekend.  See you there!


 


The last summer meeting will be held at Kim Rahmlow & Jeff Wiltman’s house at 7PM at 13980 Circle Drive Mishicot.  Please being lawn chairs and your favorite beverage.  Starting in September we will be back at the Round Em Up for our club meetings. 


 


The club will be having a work day at Musil’s barn to put gravel in the gutters.  Once it is done we can have concrete poured over the gravel.  This will make it easier and safer to get the barrels of signs out this fall and make the barn more functional.  Date and time to be announced later.


 


If you know of a section of snowmobile trail that needs to be brushed or other work that needs to be done to ensure we have the best trails possible let Tom Shebesta know so the club can set up a work day this fall.  This will help when we put in the trail markers in November.


 


Upcoming events:


  • Kettle Range Snow Riders Club meeting August 16th at Kim and Jeff 13980 Circle Drive Mishicot @ 7PM

  • County Alliance Meeting September 14, location to be announced later

  • Club Meeting September 20 at Round Em Up  @ 7PM

  • Adopt-a-Hwy, September 21th, meet at Hwy V and East Shore Road Road-side clean-up @ 5PM

  • Up North weekend (Lakewood) September 23-25th

July 2016 Newsletter


 


Dear Members,


Welcome to summer, I hope everyone is enjoying it.  However now that it is July you can order your discounted Trail Passes for the 2016/2017 season!  If you do order them now you will not receive them until early Fall as the state of Wisconsin is making changes to the trail pass system.  The method of ordering discounted trail passes for club members will remain the same by going to www.awsc.org or by calling the AWSC office (608.846.5530/800.232.4108) during business hours.  Also it will be legal to ride with the $10 discounted trail pass receipt for up to three weeks until your trail pass arrives.  This will help those who procrastinate!


 


Riverfest is fast approaching (August 4-7) and we need workers!  Again this year we will be in charge of the pull track as well as the food and beer tents up on the hill.  Therefore we have something for everyone one to do.  This is a great way to see a lot of people as well as see the pulls.  This is one of our larger fundraisers so we need your help.  I will also notify club members later on this month when we will be setting up the pull track.   If you would like to sign up for a shift or two please call Laurie Musil at 755-2530. 


 


Speaking of Riverfest, at the last club meeting it was decided that we will donate a bike for the Riverfest Ultimate Bike Giveaway this year.  This event made a lot of boys and girls happy last year at Riverfest as many children that enter won a free bike.  This is another example of how the club helps out the community. 


 


From the Board of directors meeting on June 21st, it was determined the Officers will remain unchanged.  That is not to say we are not open to new ideas, so if you have any ideas or input for the club please contact one of the officers listed on the top of the newsletter.   


 


Like past years, summer meetings will be held at club member’s homes.  The July club meeting will be held at Tom and Ann Shebesta’s (651 Church Street, Mishicot) on July 19th at 7PM. Please bring a chair and your favorite beverage. 


 


Our second Adopt-a-highway event will be July 20th.  We will meet at Hwy V and East Shore Road to pick up litter.  Bring your gloves and walking shoes.  Fashionable safety green vests and garbage sacks will be provided to ensure we all look our best!


 


There will be another club Lakewood Weekend September 23 – 25th to have some fun prior to the fall where things ramp back up for the club.  Nancy Ollendorf will be planning the event so you know there will be lots of laughs.  There will be plenty of room either in member’s cabins or for camping.  See you there!


 


Upcoming events:


  • Kettle Range Snow Riders Club meeting July 19th at the Shebesta’s 651 Church St, Mishicot @ 7PM

  • Adopt-a-Hwy, July20th 6PM, meet at Hwy V and East Shore Road Road-side clean-up @6PM

June 2016 Newsletter

 

Dear Members,

June has to be one of the clubs slower months in terms of activities.  However the club members can start signing up to work the pull track and the food and beer tents at Mishicot Riverfest which is August 4-7 this year.  We will needs lots of help on Friday night and all day Saturday.   This is one of our larger fundraisers and will needs lots of volunteers to make it happen.  If you would like to sign up for a shift or two please call Laurie Musil at 755-2530. 

 

Thanks to those who helped with the first Adopt-a-hwy.  We had enough people show up that we were able to break into four groups and get it completed in just one hour.  This is one of the many ways the club helps the community to be a better and cleaner place.  

 

Like past years, summer meetings will be held at club member’s homes.  The June club meeting will be held at Jim and Kathy Golding’s (8731 Arrow Road, Manitowoc) on June 21st at 7PM.  Please bring a chair and your favorite beverage. 

 

Preceding the June 21st club meeting at the Golding’s, there will be a Board of Directors meeting at 6:30PM where the officers of the club will be determined and other business will be discussed.  This meeting is just for the board members. 

 

Speaking of the Board of Directors, the following individuals were elected at the last club meeting: Jim Golding, Brad Musil and new to the board, Jake Schnell.  Jake has been a member of our club for many years and will bring many new ideas to the board. 

 

There will be another club Lakewood Weekend September 23 – 25th to have some fun prior to the fall where things ramp back up for the club.  Nancy Ollendorf will be planning the event so you know there will be lots of laughs.  There will be plenty of room either in member’s cabins or for camping.  See you there!

 

Looking at the trail pass statistics from the past year, there were 117,347 passes sold of which 61,966 were sold to club members.  The reduced trail passes available to club members resulted in 13,194 new club members to local clubs.  Our club membership grew from 75 club members to 108 members which is the largest club in Manitowoc County.  Yes, there are some bugs to work out on trails passes on both a club level and a state level, but overall it appears trail passes have increase club membership and will improve the trail system which was the original goal.     

 

Upcoming events:

  • Kettle Range Snow Riders Club meeting June 21st at the Golding’s 8731 Arrow Rd, Manitowoc@7PM

  • Kettle Range Snow Riders Club meeting July 19th at the Shebesta’s 651 Church St, Mishicot @ 7PM

May 2016 Newsletter


 


Dear Members,


 


Spring is here which means Adopt-a-Hwy clean-up.  This is one of the ways our club gives back to the community.  The first clean-up date always has the most trash as it has been about 5 months since we did our last clean-up.  Therefore we need a large crew in order to do it quickly.  The first date is Tuesday, May 3 at 6PM.  We meet at the intersection of Hwy V and East Shore Road.  Please bring work gloves and sturdy shoes or boots. 


 


While we have finished taking down our trail signs please make sure to turn in your hours to Tom Shebesta so we can get paid for the volunteer labor you donated.  Also don’t forget to take note of any damaged trail signs so that new ones can be ordered by Tom.  For example, due to the feed piles by Nuclear Road, the trail signs close to the piles were all damaged.  This is one section of trail that we will be looking to reroute next year by crossing further West on Nuclear Road to avoid this issue next year.  If there are any similar trail issues or concerns please discuss them with Tom or another board member so they can be resolved. 


 


The Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance Banquet was a success for the club with most club members winning some type of prize or drawing.  The big winner was Judy Blazer who won more the $350!  


 


At the April meeting nominations were taken to be on the ballot for the Board of Directors elections which will be held at the May meeting.  All of the incumbents (Jim Golding, Angie Peltier, and Brad Musil) were nominated as well as Phil Gregorich, Kayla Taddy, and Jesse Vain.  Nominations will remain open until the election which will be at the end of the May meeting.  If you know someone who is willing to help lead the club, please nominate them as new ideas are always welcome. 


 


The AWSC continues to learn from this last year with the all of the new club members joining that wanted the reduced trail passes.  Starting next year they will limit the number of times we can make roster changes.  This includes adding members, renewing members and address changes.  Our club will only submit memberships twice a month.  Therefore you need to plan ahead by keeping your membership current and ordering your trails passes early.   Please communicate this to any fellow snowmobilers that maybe considering joining a club next year also. 


 


Upcoming events:


  • Adopt-a-Hwy, May 3th 6PM, meet at Hwy V and East Shore Road Road-side clean-up @6PM

  • Kettle Range Snow Riders Club meeting May 17th @ Round Em Up Mishicot, WI@ 7:00PM

April 2016 Newsletter


 


Dear Members,


 


One would think Spring would be a slow time of year for a snowmobile club; however it is not as there is always something to do.  On Friday we had our spring fish fry fundraiser at the Vets Club in Mishicot.  The turnout was great with 367 plates being sold.  A Big Thanks too many club members helping out with getting the equipment and supplies needed as well as working the actual event.  There is many hours of work done before the fish fry starts.  Members reserve the Vets Club, get the food permit, beverage permit, order the fish, buy paper products from Sam’s Club, buy the beer and soda, get the freezer truck, refrigerator trailer, advertise the fish fry on the radio and in newspapers, hang up fliers, bring all the items to the Vet’s Club Thursday evening and ice down the beverages, set up the tent outside, cleaning and setting up the fryers, make desserts, and more.  One may think these things just happen on their own but there is many hours and people involved working in advance of Fridays successful Fish Fry.  As a club we all work together and it shows.


 


We use the profit from fish fry on Friday to help pay for the Landowners banquet on Saturday.  We had 93 landowners and 31 club members make reservations to attend the banquet.  The banquet allows the club to thank the landowners for letting us use their land.  Without their generosity our trial system would fail and we would not be able to enjoy our sport.  The banquet allows landowners to socialize with others that they may not see very often as well as club members.  I also want to thank the club members and businesses that donated door prizes for the landowners.  Everyone walked away happy and full!


 


When things dry out, the trails signs will need to be removed, remember to record your hours and equipment used.  They need to be turned into Tom Shebesta so that the club can get paid for your work. If any of the sign posts break off in the ground please be sure to remove end in the ground otherwise the landowners’ equipment may be damaged if they hit it. 


 


At the April meeting we will be taking nominations for the Board of Directors followed by elections at the May meeting.  If you have a desire to help lead the club this is your opportunity.  The term is for three years.  The following board members term is ending: Jim Golding, Angie Peltier, and Brad Musil.


 


The Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance will be April 16th at City Limits.  If you still want to attend but have not bought/won a ticket yet please call Danny by April 8th at 920-773-2878 or email gingerhammel@gmail.com.  Also the last Alliance meeting will be sponsored by our club at Port Sandy Bay on April 16th sponsored by our club.  If you are looking to get involved on the county level they will be having elections with nominations needed for Vice-President. 


 


Upcoming events:


  • Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance Banquet April 16 @ City Limits Manitowoc, WI

  • Kettle Range Snow Riders Club meeting April 19th @ Round Em Up Mishicot, WI@ 7:00PM

  • Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance Meeting April 27th @Port Sandy Bay, 7:30pm

March 2016 Newsletter

 

Dear Members,

 

Well I think the snowmobile season is over for Manitowoc County.  I hope you had a chance to get out and ride while the trails were open.  Those who rode stated the trails were remarkable good considering the amount of snow we had.  I want to thank those that were able to get out and groom the trails as you guys did a great job. 

 

This last weekend was supposed to be our Lakewood snowmobile weekend, however due to the warm weather we left the snowmobiles home but not the fun times.  I want to thank Nancy Ollendorf for planning the activities at night and hosting the party.  I also want to thank Janice Tetzlaff and Tom and Nancy Ollendorf for opening their cabins for others to stay at.  Despite not riding everyone had a great time with lots of laughs. 

 

Looking forward to spring we have our Spring Fish Fry on April 1st at the Mishicot Vets Club.  We are still looking for help starting with setup at 1PM all the way to cleanup at 8PM.  If you can help please contact Laurie Musil at 755-2530.  We also need homemade desserts to sell at the fish fry. 

 

On April 2nd, we have the Landowners Banquet at Good Times Restaurant and Banquet hall in Mishicot.  This is good way for club members to meet the landowners that make our trail system possible.  The cost is $10 per person.  You can sign up at the March club meeting or call Jim Golding at 684-2982 by March 15th.  We are also looking for door prizes to give to the Landowners.  These door prizes can be donated by local business or donated by club members.  The door prizes can be brought to the March meeting, the Fish Fry, dropped off at the Musil’s house or brought to the banquet. 

 

The Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance banquet is April 16 at City Limits in Manitowoc with cash bar at 5:30 dinner at 7PM.  The cost is $50 for two people.  There are numerous door prizes as well as raffles and silent auction for other items.  Cash prizes are $1500 first, $750 second, $250 third, $100 fourth through eighth.  Usually a significant number of club members come home with prizes.  The club bought one of these tickets and held a drawing at the February meeting where Phil and Jessica Gregorich won the ticket. 

 

When things dry out, the trails signs will need to be removed, remember to record your hours and equipment used.  They need to be turned into Tom Shebesta so that the club can get paid for your work.

  • Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance Meeting March 9th @ Pack’er Inn, 7:30pm

February 2016 Newsletter

 

Dear Members,

 

Just when it is starting to look like winter, the weather turns warm with little snow fall – kind of depressing if you ask me.  Due to the poor weather we had to cancel our club ride in Antigo in January, but hopefully things will turn around this winter as the Super 8 in Antigo would honor the reduced room rate later in the season. 

 

Snow or not there will still be a get together in Lakewood just for the fun of it.  The Lakewood Weekend is scheduled February 26, 27, & 28th.  We will get a head count at the February meeting of who is all going and the exact details and schedule.

 

Our club membership continues to grow even with the poor snow conditions.  In the last month we gained another 8 new members which bring us to 108 members.  The number is actually more as some long term members have let their membership lapse.  If you are not receiving the AWSC magazine then your membership lapsed.  If you are not sure give me a call or email me and I will let you know if your membership is current.    

 

The spring fish fry will be April 1st at the Vets club in Mishicot followed by the Landowners Banquet on April 2nd.  The goal is to have the fish fry pay for the landowners banquet so your help in needed at the fish fry.  Even if you do not have time to help at least bring a friend and enjoy a meal.  In addition we need door prizes for the landowners’ banquet.  You can either bring them to a club meeting or drop them off at Laurie Musil’s house at 2826 Fisherville Rd.  The landowners’ banquet will be held at Good Times Restaurant & Banquet Hall on Hwy B north of Mishicot.  The cost is $10 for club members.  This is a good way to meet the landowners that allow our trails to cross their land.   

 

The Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance banquet is April 16 at City Limits in Manitowoc with cash bar at 5:30 dinner at 7PM.  The cost is $50 for two people.  There are numerous door prizes as well as raffles and silent auction for other items.  Cash prizes are $1500 first, $750 second, $250 third, $100 fourth through eighth.  Usually a significant number of club members come home with prizes.

January 2016 Newsletter


 


Dear Members,


It is finally looking like winter around here after a very wet and warm fall, however even with the recent snow trying to open the trails with no frost in the ground and wet areas everywhere will take some time.  My recommendation is to hope and wait for more cold and now so we can open sometime this winter.  For the most current information on if the trails are open and there conditions go to the clubs website or the Manitowoc County snowmobile trail webpage http://www.co.manitowoc.wi.us/recreation/snowmobilecond.asp. 


 


At the last club meeting someone brought up whether the new trail pass system has resulted in an increase in membership for the club.  Taking a quick look at membership in August to now we have increased by 25 new members/families.  Some are old club members returning, others are altogether new ones.  With all clubs about 20% of the members are active so we have seen a fair number of the new members help out at fish fries and at trail marking which is great.  So while the trail pass system has created additional work for myself and Kim Rahmlow, the benefits are significant because any increase in membership is worth it.  Remember the only place to get the reduce trail pass is through the AWSC by calling 800-232-4108 or go to www.awsc.org   You cannot go to Fleet Farm and get a reduced trail pass even though you are a club member.  So you need to plan ahead and keep your membership current.    


 


From the Christmas party/meeting we were able to donate a significant quantity of food to both the Two Rivers Ecumenical Pantry and a new food pantry the Mishicot School System has started.  Both pantries were very happy with our donation.   


 


Again this year our club sponsored the Mishicot Christmas Lighting Contest.  The winners are in order: Lambert and Dawn Finnel, Rod Scheuer, Art Stock and Honorable Mention: Joshua J Campion, Craig Trouiller, Terry and Carla Halvorson.  I want to thank Tom Shebesta, John Campion and Patsy Dewitt for doing the judging this year.


 


Looking forward, our Up North trip will be January 22-24 in Antigo.  We have reserved a block of 10 rooms at the Super 8 in Antigo (715-623-4188) for the weekend of January 22-24.  The rooms cost $69.99 per night.  For those who have not been on these trips, we snowmobile during the day in large groups and in the evening we take over the entire pool area, hot tub and break room where we setup the food.  We will get a final count of who is going at the January meeting.  Right now the trails are closed but the hotel has a 24 hr cancellation policy so you can cancel the day before so I recommend you make your reservations as you have nothing to lose other than a good time.


 


The Lakewood Weekend is scheduled February 26, 27, & 28th.  This trip involves riding on Friday and Saturday with activities back at Tom and Nancy Ollendorf’s cabin Saturday evening.  We will get a head count at the February meeting of who is all going.


 


Upcoming events:


  • Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance Meeting Jan 13th @Rockland Town Hall in Collins, 7:30pm

  • Kettle Range Snow Riders Club meeting January 19th at Round Em Up Mishicot, WI@ 7:00PM

  • Up-North snowmobiling weekend, Antigo Super 8 (715-623-4188),  January 22-24

December 2015 Newsletter


 


 


Dear Members,


Well I think the club is ready for winter even though winter is not ready for us right now given the lack of snow.  As I travel through the county I can see we have the majority of our trails in.  Thanks all of the club members who helped mark the trails.  It is amazing how many miles of trails can be marked on one Saturday.  It was great seeing both new and existing members all helping out to get the trails marked.  I also want to thanks Laurie Musil for having lunch back at Musil’s shop so everyone could have a warm meal before heading back out to do more marking. 


 


In the last newsletter I mentioned our fall fish fry was very successful.  While I won’t give total profit, I will say the profit was about $600 higher than the average profit!  The increase in profit is due to many things- more customers, lower food cost, less food waste due to better fryers, and better portion control.  We still have room for improvement such as ordering more perch so we don’t run out by 6PM like we did this time.  A big thanks to all of those involved on the fish fry committee: Laurie Musil, Kim Rahmlow, Dale Eslinger, Jim and Kathy Golding, Bruce and Tanya Boettcher. 


 


I want to congratulate Steve Spiering on taking over as the Treasurer for Manitowoc County Snowmobile Alliance.  Steve has been our representative at these meetings for the last few years so it was great to have Steve take on this additional responsibility.  Steve is the first club member to be on the County Alliance Board for many years.  Thanks Steve for helping out!


  


The next meeting will be our Christmas Party where we will have a short meeting followed by pizza and drinks paid for by the club.  Again this year everyone is encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to the meeting which will be donated to the Two River Ecumenical Pantry.  The Christmas Party is the clubs way of saying thanks for all the hard work our members put in and the food donations is one more way for club members help out those in the community.


 


Don’t forget about our Up North trip in Antigo January 22-24.  We have reserved a block of 10 rooms at the Super 8 in Antigo (715-623-4188) for the weekend of January 22-24.  For those who have not been on these trips, we snowmobile during the day in large groups and in the evening we take over the entire pool area, hot tub and break room where we setup the food.  We will get a final count of who is going at the January meeting.


 


The Lakewood Weekend is scheduled February 26, 27, & 28th.  This trip involves riding on Friday, Saturday with activities back at Tom and Nancy Ollendorf’s cabin Saturday evening.  We will get a head count at the February meeting of who is all going.

November 2015 Newsletter


 


 


Dear Members,


 


First I want to thank everyone for helping at this fall fish fry.  This was our first time using a new vendor for the food and our own fryers.  The crew working set up did a great job of getting things ready in time for the fish fry.  The new fryers worked great and put out great quality fish.  We sold 346 plates which is more than the last couple of fish fries.  We sold out of perch and smelt and had very little left over of the walleye.  Overall a very successful fish fry with very satisfied customers.  We will be making improvements so things run more efficiently so if you have any input please let me know. 


 


I also want to thank those who taught the Snowmobile Safety Class:  Dale Eslinger, Jake Lesser, Laurie Musil and Kim Rahmlow.  They had a great class of 16 kids who will be the future of snowmobiling.  We are looking for more instructors so if you would like to teach please let Kim Rahmlow know.  This is a great way our club gives back to the community and ensures safety on the trails.


 


Fall trail marking will be November 14th starting around 8AM at Musil’s Farm, 2826 Fisherville Rd.  Even if you have never helped mark trails before come join a group that is going out to see how it is done.  Lunch will be served back at the farm for the workers to allow them to get more done in one day.  We are also looking for club members to adopt a section of trail and mark it each year.  The club owns a four wheeler and other supplies needed for marking to make it easy.  This is not a large time commitment – about a day to set up and half a day to remove.  This is a great way to have some personal ownership in our trail system and give back to the snowmobile club and the community.  Give Tom Shebesta (755-2695) a call to see what trail sections are available. 


 


Looking forward to winter, the club has planned the Up North trip.  Again this year we have decided to go to Antigo due to the lower rate of $69.99 per night and the fun times we had there the last two years.  We have reserved a block of 10 rooms at the Super 8 (715-623-4188) for the weekend of January 22-24.  For those who have not been on these trips, we snowmobile during the day in large groups and in the evening we take over the entire pool area, hot tub and break room where we setup the food.  These trips are a lot of fun and laughs that you will remember for a long time.   This is also a great way to get to know other club members and realize this club is a lot of fun. 


 


We are also planning a Lakewood Weekend sometime February (date to be determined) for more fun and games where we stay at members cabins.  This is another one of those events that lasting memories are made from.
