Meeting Minutes

February 6, 2024

The meeting was called to order by President Erich Roethel

The secretary’s report was read. Terry moved a motion to accept the secretary’s report, seconded by Jeff. The motion passed.

The treasurer’s report was read. Dale moved a motion to accept the treasurer’s report, seconded by Terry. The motion passed.

 

Trails: There was one reroute because of crops that did not get off. Trails opened after the “blizzard” Jan 12th, because of the heavy snow and winds there were a lot of down trees, Ongina woods was impassable until Thurs 18th. Cascade woods also had some bad spots with people stuck. Thanks to everyone that helped cut trees down, cleared the trails. Robin is on a break, a couple guys picked up the grooming, were out everyday until the track came off. We had a few nice days of riding.

 

Tucker: First time out with the new groomer. Dean, Dale, Wayne, Tim, and Chuck helped with grooming. Went out for 5 days, it worked great. Drives good. Saturday Feb 20th the track came off, some snowmobilers helped put it back on. And they got it back to Dean’s shop. Tim rebuilt the track and got it back on. If the trails do open again, it can go out. But there will be some things to work on in the off season:

·        Rebuild the track and have a spare.

·        There is an oil leak, possibly the head gasket.

·        Will probably need to spend some money on it this summer.

 

NKM: Mike Holden-there will not be any supplemental. The AWSC convention is in March at the Osthoff. The hospitality room will raise money for travel expenses for the directors. Sheboygan County did a great job pulling it all together to get the trails open. Next meeting will be at Kims Five Corners Tap, Feb 22, 7:00. Will need to pay dues and it will be elections.

 

Old Business:

·        Spring Convention:

o   Mary Holden-for the hospitality room, needs help Saturday 5-8 & 8-11, also would like people to bring finger foods to serve. There will be raffles, free beer, and a cash bar. Two raffle baskets-drop off at Holdens or bring to NKM meeting in March. Will also be a 50/50 raffle. Matt moved to pay the $25 registration fee for anyone willing to volunteer to work, Terry seconded it. The motion carried.

·        Leveling equipment-Dave Eisentrout has some equipment we can rent/borrow. It is on a trailer. We can just go pick it up the day we need it and bring it back. Better to save our money for the groomer if it needs some work.

·        Robin & Pete-where are they at? Will need to find out by the end of the season. They have a section of trail as well.

 

New Business:

·        Food Drive-thanks to everyone that brought items. Dan Lorier will take to Campus Life

·        Thanks to everyone that helped clean up trails and groomed.

·        AWSC was overwhelmed with trail passes when it snowed. Good idea to get your trail pass early.

·        NKM dues are $60. Matt moved to pay the dues, seconded by Andy. The motion carried.

·        Our elections will be in April. Does anyone want to run for the board?

·        Feb 9-11 Plymouth Rangers has the snow cross races. There will be a band on Saturday night.

New Business:

·        Matt moved a motion for the club to purchase some apparel for the convention, for a raffle basket, and to sell. Dan seconded it, the motion passed.

·        Robin made some calls about a new leveling implement called a power harrow. It was $14,000, new. The board discussed it, and it was decided to table for now, keep eyes and ears open for a used one. We might need the money from our treasury right now if we open the trails and groom. The groomer has never been used by us on Open trails, and we may have problems that will need fixing.
