Trail Report For: Mercer
Reported By: Kat
Date of Report: 03/24/2012
Trail Conditions: Trails Closed
Snow Cover: The grass is turning green
Area Report: It’s hard to believe it’s only the 24th of March, we have absolutely no snow on the ground and most of the lakes are open.
Some of the larger areas of the Flowage are still fighting it but they should lose the battle today or tomorrow.
For the last few years our club has gotten involved with the “Take Pride and Ride” area raffle
In this economy and at today’s sled prices we’ve determined we can actually make a profit by using this as our raffle instead of buying a sled outright. With the Take Pride and Ride raffle all we pay for is the printing of our share of tickets.
I proudly would like to announce the winner of this year’s sled was Jim Cornell from Appleton, Wisconsin
And…… The winning ticket was sold by The Mercer Area Sno-Goers and you guessed it……….
Dale at Camp One sold the ticket!
There’s your proof, he really does turn in the tickets, except of course the ones he eats for lunch
Thanks Dale for all of your hard work and selling more tickets for our club than all of our businesses combined
And thanks to all of you for making this a fabulous season, although it was short it was still great!
Don’t forget there is plenty to do up here in the Northwoods even without snow on the ground
The 25th Annual Mercer Loons MC Loon Party will be held as always on the third Saturday in August
August 18, 2012. Food, Bike Games, Beer, Soda, Bands, Free Camping or plenty of cabins and motels to stay in
It’s a great time and a great fundraiser for our area kids and our local chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America
Hope to see you here and if not have a great summer and hopefully I’ll be right here to babble all winter long for the 2012-2013 season!
