Trail Signing starts Saturday, Nov 16th

Trail signing is scheduled to start on Saturday, Nov 16th. The plan is to meet at 9:00am at Casey’s in Horace14585281_10154672558869165_188894429_nOnce assembled we will determine how many crews we can send out and which areas each crew will cover. If you have a 4-wheeler please bring it along as they provide a real boost to efficiency. If you have safety clothing (fluorescent yellow or orange) bring that along as well and wear it. We will have some available but want to make sure everyone is as visible as possible for safety.

Can’t commit to the whole day? That’s fine too. Any time you can provide would be great. Contact us via Facebook or  email us at to let us know your schedule and we can exchange contact info to ensure we can meet somewhere on the trail.

Installing the trail system is the biggest effort we take on each season. We are all volunteers and without volunteers, there is no trail. Please consider helping out, even if it is for a short period of time, every set of hands helps.

Trail sign pickup – Sat, April 27th

This weekend we will be retrieving signs from the trail system. The late spring and flooding have put us behind schedule so we need your help to get the job done. If you have used the trails you are well aware that there are a lot of signs out there, about 12 signs per mile on average. That adds up to a big job but many hands makes light work.

We will be assembling at Casey’s in Horace at 9:15am. If you have an ATV please bring it. If you have high-visibility clothing, please wear it.

Hope to see you there.

Club Meeting – Wed March 6th

Our next club meeting will be Wednesday, March 6th at 7pm at Big Erv’s in Horace.

We’ve had meetings in different corners of the trail system this season hoping to meet and get involvement from more riders from across the system. The turnout at these meetings was ZERO people beyond the existing active members so this month we are back to the most convenient location for those folks.

We are having the best snow season in several years and the club has been busy keeping up with trail and groomer maintenance. Main topic for this meeting will be ongoing trail maintenance but we will also start looking forward to “end of season” tasks. Yes, that’s right, we are already in the last month of the season (trails close April 1st). Get that riding in now, it’ll have to hold you till next season.

Hope to see you Wednesday.
