June Meeting

Hi Everybody!


Just reminding everyone of the club meeting tomorrow, June 17th at the St. Ansgar Legion at 7:30 P.M.  We will be discussing scholarship information, old and new business, summer event planning for the club.


Hope to see you all there!



Groomer is Out, Last Ride of the Season?

Hello, all. The past couple weeks have been quite difficult for us, so we haven’t posted a whole lot on the website… Anyway, I’ll bring you up to speed on the trails as of today (3-7-14). Since last weekend, the groomer has gotten some surgery to the track system, and will be out running full force today and tomorrow for some (hopefully) good riding. We apologize for the inconvenience and rough trails, but we had to do this to prevent any further damage.


We hope you all enjoy the trails this weekend. Stay safe, use the buddy system, and use hand signals if you can. The forecast is calling for mid 40’s on Sunday, so get out and ride while you still have a chance!



WinterFest is Coming!

Howdy, everyone! We have some information to post about WinterFest! The date will be on Saturday, February 22, 2014 with a fun ride starting in the morning and ending in the afternoon. After the fun ride during the day, we will be having a “Group Torch Ride” with glow sticks riding around the river. After the torch ride, there will be a meat raffle. All of these events starts and stops at the American Legion in St. Ansgar. We will post more information when it becomes available!

Groomer School TONIGHT!

This is a reminder to all who are a groomer operator in the North Iowa area, or would like to become one.  There is a groomer operating certification class in Rudd, IA at the community center tonight, December 18, 2013.  For individuals who would like to become certified, the New Operator Certification class will start at 6:00, and Re-Certification for currently certified operators will start at 6:30.


All groomer operators in the state of Iowa are mandated to be re-certified in groomer operating by June 2014.  This is due to new regulations put in by the state and DNR to make sure that everyone who is operating a groomer is trained.


Also, for current operators, DNR officers WILL be stopping the groomer on a regular basis to check up on how grooming is going, and also to check for illegal activities. Remember, alcohol and tobacco products are strictly prohibited in the groomer, and the club may lose the groomer if any illegal activities are happening while grooming trails.  Remember, it only takes one incident to ruin the sport for everyone in the county, so be responsible!


Once again, the groomer school starts at 6:00 tonight in Rudd for new operators, and at 6:30 for re-certification.  Happy Holidays and pray for snow!

A big thank you to all the club members who attended the meeting last night. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the next one on Tuesday, November 19th at the St. Ansgar Legion! We will be discussing more information on the annual fundraiser/dance, and some future events that will be happening this winter! You’ll have to attend the meeting to find out what they are!
