2015 Smoke Signals Article
I hope that this issue of the Smoke Signals finds you are already enjoying the summer season. This past winter was a little disappointing for those who wanted to hit the trails directly from Legend Lake. Due to the lack of snow the Shawano County trail system never opened in our area. I do hope that you had a trailer and were able to ride the trails further North or at least did a few trips around our beautiful Legend Lake. Things sure were different this year! I spent a day getting my sleds ready for a long summer nap! We spent the weekend in March with a group of friends from Legend Lake at Carter WI. We rode about 200 miles. Then a week later not any snow could be found and all the trails in Wisconsin closed.
We are a nonprofit club and do not receive any state or local funding for our trail signage, construction or grooming. So please consider joining our club for fellowship and to keep the trails open for everyone. Membership forms are available on our web site, the Legend Lake Lodge, Berry Lake Club or by contacting our club secretary Nancy Andersen.
Our club is a member club of the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs AWSC and if you are a member of the LLCK you are also member of the AWSC. You are getting membership in 2 clubs for your $20 LLCK membership fee and should have received your first Wisconsin WSN SNOWMOBILW NEWS magazine. Being a member of the LLCK and AWSC is even more important now as you will read below.
IF YOU SNOWMOBILE IN WISCONSIN YOU and WANT TO SAVE MONEY PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING!AFTER July 2015 YOU WILL NEED A TRAIL PASS $10 FOR CLUB MEMBERS $30 IF YOU ARE NOT A CLUB MEMBER ($250 fine for not having a trail pass!)
IMPORTANT NEWS: The Wisconsin State Legislature CAP/STEP bill AB407 has passed. This is a bill that will change the way you register your sleds. The highlights of this bill are shown here along with the requirements for registration and trail pass. A trail pas order form is also included in this issue of the Smoke signals. Please note that your membership number is printed on your address label of the WSN magazine.
If you have any questions please call Lori M. Pohl the AWSC business manager at 800-232-4108 or email her at: email@example.com .
One of our old sponsors are back under new ownership and we also have added a new one to the list we would like to welcome the Cotton Patch and the Fill-N-Station and as always please make it a priority to support all of our sponsors who sponsor our Poker Run, Raffle Ticket program and door prizes. THANK YOU SPONSORS!
Trail Grooming: Our club depends on the surrounding clubs so the groomer has access to our trails. Please make sure that when you meet the groomers on
the trail, give them plenty of room to operate and pass. Give them a smile and a wave.
Our annual Meeting and election of officers will be at the Legend Lake Lodge on the second Saturday of October as required in our by-law. Please thank all of our officers. Most of our club work is handled through e-mail so physical meetings are not held unless needed. So your ability to serve as an officer is not hampered by not being able to attend meetings. If you have questions about a position or the elections contact, our Vice President Michelle Falk at firstname.lastname@example.org she is in charge of nominations and elections. New members and officers keep our club strong.
Sponsorship Cards and Annual Raffle: The Club Sponsorship Cards and Raffle program will have been held again this year by the time you receive this issue of the Smoke signals. This year we had our Raffle Drawing party at the Fill-n-Station in Cecil. Thanks to all of you for participating it is through programs like this that we have funds available for trail grooming and improvement.
Poker Run and Party! Thanks to all of you who joined in the fun at the Cotton Patch. It is our Clubs main social event of the year. We had about 60 members and friends in attendance. A special thanks to Rob and Ashley Soik, Steve and Roxi Vandenhuevel and other for their help in rounding up items for our door prizes. The prizes came from our sponsors as well as Rob generous gifts from the D2 sports bar in Green bay which he manages. It is their help that make these events a great success and continue to raise fund for our club for trail improvements and grooming. Please note you do not need to be a member of our club to participate in these events. Next year please join us. If you would have questions or suggestions please contact our fund raising Chairman Rob Soik at email@example.com or Nancy Andersen if you have questions.
Membership and E-mail Address: You will be receiving your membership renewal form in the mail in the fall. Please remember to update your e-mail address on the membership form and return it ASAP in the enclosed stamp envelope. If you would like to get updates of activities by e-mail please send in a membership form noting that. Membership forms are available on our web site, Legend Lake Lodge, The Berry Lake Club, Thunder Bird Gas Station, or contact Nancy Andersen at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Web site and Face Book: You can go to our Web Site listed above to find out trail conditions and also link up to other great trail report web sites. If you have interesting pictures please post them on the LLCK Face book page or send them to Chris Dyer our web master at email@example.com . Our Face Book Page can be used to communicate with other members, for trail rides and other information. Membership forms are available on the web site.
Our Trail System: What else can I say but THANK YOU! After our annual meeting which was attended by almost 30 people (a new record) we did trail brushing and preparation for this season. We had almost 20 club members who stayed to work on our trail system that day. The great thing about it was we were able to be done in just over 3 hours. Many hands make light work. A special thank you to Roger and Vicki Schmidt and my wife MarJean who without the extra effort they put forward we would not have a trail.
WHEN VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED, YOU NEED TO STEP FORWARD TO ASSIST!
We currently have about 50 member family units at this time. Please encourage everyone you know to join the club. I hope that everyone who uses the trail would join the club for trail supporship, social activities and to save money on the new required trail pass. To join the club send in the membership form included with this issue, contact Nancy Andersen by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy, or stop at the Legend Lake Lodge, or Thunder-Bird gas station for a membership form.
IT IS UP TO YOU TO KEEP OUR CLUB STRONG.
UNITED WE TRAIL! DIVIDED WE FAIL!
