Good evening, all. I think it’s safe to say that Winter is back upon us again and hopefully doesn’t leave soon, either.
As you most likely know already, February is the month where all the really fun stuff happens on the trails in Mitchell County. From fun runs to club rides, to other events happening in the area, this is the month. So, what do we have in store? Check it out:
First on the list is the second annual WinterFest (Fun Run/Meat Raffle/Memorial Lighted Ride) on Saturday, February 21st. The fun run will be snow pending, as will the lighted ride. There will also be burgers served from 4-6 PM at the Legion in St. Ansgar. Following the burgers at the Legion will be the lighted ride from the Legion to Interstate Park in Mitchell. At 8:00 PM that night will be the meat raffle back at the Legion. Go to www.mcezriders.com/WinterFest2015 for more information. Also, you may drive the fun run if we do not have snow at that time.
Next off is the ISSA ride in memory of Dave Carmichael on February 26th through the 28th, with a stop in Osage on the 27th. These riders will be staying at the AmericInn in Osage that night. Our club will be hosting a meal of hamburgers and cheesy potatoes at the shop of J&K Construction at around 5:00-5:30 PM. We are asking for a free will offering to eat, and we will need volunteers to help us serve. Feel free to stop on out and enjoy a meal and beverages, as well as meet fellow snowmobilers from the state of Iowa.
Finally, there is a club ride planned to Wabasha, Minnesota starting on Saturday February 28, staying up there that night, and heading back on the next day (March 1). We will be leaving at 9:00 AM sharp on Saturday morning, and there are currently 16 rooms booked for members of the club. Get ahold of your nearest club officer or head to the meeting for more information.
Last but not least – Don’t forget to head on out to the next club meeting. There’s still quite a bit of planning to go, and we would love everyone’s input on these events. The meeting is on Tuesday, February 10th at the Legion in St. Ansgar. We hope to see you there.
Ride safe and be smart, but most importantly, have fun!
