October update

Dear Members,

The LMT board is sending out this email to keep the membership informed on what is happening within the club.

The board met this past week on October 8th for our monthly meeting and decided there would not be an October membership meeting due to the Covid 19 virus. We will discuss future meetings and keep you, the membership, informed.

As a board, we would like to let you know what has happened over the past six months to improve our organization and keep the LMT moving forward. We now have a new 2020 Tucker trail groomer and recently purchased a 2014 Tucker with fairly low hours in good condition. All of the groomer drivers will be participating in a training and safety course, along with hands-on instruction in the Tuckers before the grooming season begins. Also, we sold our T-7 New Holland tractor to make room for the Tuckers.

We will begin trail work this week, using our remaining New Holland tractor, which is set up with our brushing equipment, and will also use our Terex (with back hoe and bucket) to improve and maintain our trail system. Also, we will be using our Chevy truck, (donated by Donna Velie) to do signage on our trails. Dave Velie Jr. has modified his Dad’s old truck to be very functional in signing our trails.

We would like to thank our dedicated members for helping clean up and organize our maintenance shop, storage building, and grounds in Wabeno. A new heating system will soon be installed in our maintenance shop. 

We would also like to thank those of you who have made donations to support the LMT to replace our lost fund-raising revenue due to the Booyah Bash being cancelled. Donations may be mailed to LMT, P.O. Box 7, Wabeno, WI 54566. 

Our annual Fall Brushing Day is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, November 7th. We will keep you informed via email and on this website with further details. 

We hope you found this update to be informative. If you have any questions, you can email us at lumberjackmemorialtrails579@gmail.com

Thank you and THINK SNOW!!

Sincerely,

Diane Braunreiter, secretary
LMT Snowmobile Club

Booyah Bash update

To All LMT Members:

The Booyah Bash committee met Thursday September 17th to discuss our annual Booyah Bash fundraiser. Each member of the committee had an opportunity to express their feelings on whether or not to hold this event during these unprecedented times we are facing. After much discussion on this topic, it was voted to suspend this event for January 2021 in the best interest of our many volunteers needed to put on this event, our community, and those who come to support this event.

The Booyah Bash is our club’s main fundraiser, with the proceeds being used towards our equipment maintenance and fuel costs. We thank each and every one of you who have supported the LMT in the past and ask if you are able, to please consider making an additional donation to the club to make up for our lost fundraising revenue due to the difficult decision to cancel our Booyah Bash.

Some of you have already made donations to the LMT when you paid your dues. We are grateful for this and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If you would like to donate, you can make a check out to the LMT at P.O. Box 7, Wabeno, WI  54566. We look forward to planning our next Booyah Bash and all of the fun and good times that go along with this wonderful social get-together.

Just a reminder from your membership secretary…renew your dues if you have not already done so. The snow will be here before you know it. Also, if you have any friends or fellow snowmobilers that are looking to join our club, they can go to lmtsnowmobiletrails.com and download a membership form. It is a strong membership that makes the LMT the successful organization that it is. 

We will continue to do our best to provide you with the best trails in Forest County! Our dedicated members have been out preparing the trails for a great upcoming snowmobile season. Think snow!

Sincerely,

Lumberjack Memorial Trails Booyah Bash Committee
