And this was a Facebook post by 

Wisconsin State Representative Mary Felzkowski:

 A big thank you to Larry Rydberg and Randy Harden, President of the Wisconsin ATV / UTV Association, Inc., for the invitation to learn about the stretch of ATV trail they're looking to put through the Woodboro Lakes Recreation Area.

Northern Wisconsin has so much to offer when it comes to outdoor recreation. Get out and ride!



  • OLD BUSINESS: 


  Woodboro Lakes Update: The President of the WATVA talked with Jim and Gregg about the trail and as a result, they will be doing a ride through, surveying it and hopefully that will have some influence in helping our project. We are still working on this. 


  

 

  Swamp Lake Road Access: We received the application from the DOT and it’s been filled out and returned. We are waiting to hear back. As it would be easier to go through someone’s property, Gregg talk with some property owners but no luck so far.  


Kracker Barrel Trail:  Brian Luttrop had surveyed it and thought he could have started the repairs by early September, but he has been extremely busy so hoping he might get to this soon. 





  • MISCELLANEOUS:


Directors: Bob Bell and Jim Cleary were recognized for all they do and have done for the club. They were appointed directors on 7/20/2019.

 

Reading of minutes: The reading of minutes will no longer be read aloud at the monthly meetings. They will be posted on the website after the meeting for viewing. A link to the meetings on the website will be included in email reminders of the next future meeting for easy reference. 


Board Spending Limits: A spending limit was voted on and agreed to the amount of $5000.00. The spending limit was first, seconded and passed unanimously on 7/20/19. 


Cassian Town Roads: The Cassian town board voted unanimously to open all roads in the town of Cassian. 



 

  • NEW BUSINESS:


New Map Format: We discovered that the Lakeland ATV Club has a map design that is must clearer and easier to read. So we may be using that format for our new maps. Also discussing putting marker points on the map at various intersections or crossroads.  


 Hwy K Update: If Rhinelander ever opens their roads, they could get the remainder of Hwy K opened. This is in the works. Will keep you posted. Updates: Town of Nokomis: John Bowman mention the 90% fund that would be beneficial in helping to repair roads in our area. Roads will be being selected for this fund in the next few weeks. 


 Open Discussion: 


We will probably be doing another raffle next year. A vote was taken to raffle off money or a UTV w/trailer. The vote was unanimous for raffling a UTV w/trailer. Another motion was made to give officers a spending limit of up to $20,000 to proceed with purchasing the raffle item. The motion was first, seconded and the motion was passed unanimously. 




 On behalf of the Nokomis ATV Club, a $1000.00 check was presented by Larry Rydberg, president, to the Fire Department Chief, Don Richert, to help in the upgrading of their A/V equipment.
