Trail work this Saturday, April 17th

Hi Everyone, 
Andy needs your help this Saturday, he wants to work on the Mississippi River Northwoods trails. Meet at the Mississippi River Northwoods parking lot at 9 am. This is only for light duty work. Please don’t bring any heavy equipment, the trails are still wet and soft. Bring a chain saw, tree trimmers and small trash bags, you will ride the trails and remove any blow downed trees, trim off low hanging branches and pick up trash. Keep track of your miles on your truck and 4 wheeler, they are reimbursable expenses. Also keep track of your hours. Russ will submit all this to the DNR for reimbursement. I will not be able to make it up, I’m working this weekend. If you have any questions or need directions please contact Andy 612-669-6317. Here is link to the trail map www.dnr.state.mn.us/ohv/trail_detail.html?id=97 
From Ironton it is about 5 miles west of town on highway 210. You will turn right by the large green Mississippi Northwoods sign and follow the dirt road in. From the Brainerd Regional Airport, take Highway 210 east approximately three miles. Turn left and follow the entrance road north for ½ mile to the trailhead/parking area. 
I wish I could be there, have good time.

Club president

Trail Work Canceled.

Hi Everyone, 
From Andrew and I, 

We are canceling the trail work for tomorrow, its been raining all week and the trails are all wet and muddy. We are going to have a our regular meeting at 9 am. This is a big disappointment for many of us, were looking forward to getting out to work on the trails. Let’s keep an eye on the weather forecast maybe next weekend we can get out there.
See ya at the meeting. Ken   

Hi All,
It’s going to be too wet and muddy to be on the trails this weekend with 4 wheels. So, trail work is not going to happen this Saturday, we will discuss rescheduling on Saturday.  Also a reminder, I am putting together an order for t-shirts, sweatshirts and hats. Check your email, website and Facebook for the form. I will have some at the meeting.
See you Saturday. 
Andrew

April 10, 2021 – ATV Club Meeting

Hi Everyone,

Our next club meeting is this coming Saturday April 10, 9 am at the Ironton Legion, 232 4th Street.  Please note the time change.  All of our meetings until October we will now start at 9 am.

I’m cancelling the pancake breakfast this month, we will plan on doing that some other time.  The weather looks partly sunny and mid 50’s for Saturday.  Let’s get out and work on the trails, if the weather is permitting.  Jason is going to bring his skid steer and spread the tailings, we had delivered last fall.  Please bring some hand tools, tree trimmer, chain saw, rakes, shovels, we will clean up any brush or downed trees.  We will replace any missing trail signs too and clean up around the picnic sites and pick up trash.

Keep track of hours worked, Russ needs that so our club gets reimbursed.  Also keep track of your gas mileage on your vehicle and your 4 wheeler.  They are allowable grant in aid expenses.  You will get reimbursed.  If you are bringing equipment please contact, Russ he has the allowable rates from the DNR, he can help figure that out for you. H 218-825-0441  C 218-851-4227.

I have a small gas grill and I will bring some hotdogs and buns, lets grill hotdogs on the trail. Bring something to share if you want.  Keep it simple.

Last month we had some good discussions about getting a safe trail route into Crosby Ironton and connecting the Miller Black Bear Trail and the Mississippi Northwoods together.  Doug Houge Crow Wing County Commissioner, Dale Lueck our state representative, Jim Hunter Crosby Mayor, and Greg Stanich Ironton Mayor, and Gary Griffin Crow Wing County Lands Services were there.  The meeting was very positive.

Next month we are having club elections for vice president, treasurer and one board member. I will take nominations.

We also collect our club dues in May, $15.00 for individual and $20.00 for family, Business’s are $35.00.  You can pay at the meeting.  This will make it easier on the Treasure, so she won’t have to do all of them next month.  If you are sending a check, please make it payable to Cuyuna Iron Range Riders and mail it to P.O. 301 Crosby, MN 56441-301

Tim Sink sent me a message our next club meeting and ride is May 8th, at the Moose River trails. They are closed until May 15th, lets pick another trail.
