A big thank you, to everyone that volunteered to help with the Jaycee’s fishing contest.
Let’s make club plans for the New Year.
Turkey Time ATV trail
Would you please send your support for this new trail proposal in Carlton/St. Louis County? This will add 15.6 more miles of ATV trails to the existing trail riding in the Fond du Lac State Forest. Our club rode in the Fond du Lac forest three ago years, it is a nice scenic area.
This is Russel’s home town area, he know the trails very well.

Thank you to you and your club members for helping again this year with the Jaycee’s Fishing Extravaganza!! I was told by Andrew that they thought we did an “Outstanding” job again this year and that they couldn’t do the contest without our ongoing help. Please pass on the message to all those that helped and let the other club members know how much the JayCees appreciate our help with this event.
My list for next year’s needs say we need new Security Badges for the ATV’s and we need to send a plowing map to Andrew for next year. Anything else?
