Thursday Mornings Are Groomer & Drag Maintenance Days
Join us each Thursday for Groomer and Drag Maintenance at the Cruisers barn. We start around 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Equipment will be fairly snow free, since we don’t groom on Wednesdays. We always welcome more volunteers.
Hope to see you on Thursdays at the barn. If you would like more information as to what we do on Thursdays, please contact Bill Farmer at 847-922-0001
New Online Cruisers Store
While you are waiting for the trails to open, take a look and place your orders on our new Cross Country Cruisers online store https://stores.inksoft.com/cross_country_cruisers/shop/home You will find men’s and ladies apparel, caps and hats. This is just a start, we will be adding new products in weeks to come. So stay tuned.
Our store works just like ordering on any other online store. Click the product and there are views showing the logo placement on each product as well as different view of the product. There is also a sizing chart to help you order your size correctly. Add it to your cart if you desire. Once you have the items in your cart it prompts you to fill in your information and payment method. It will calculate tax and shipping at the end of the process for you. All products will ship directly to your door and take approximately 2 weeks for delivery.
A Quick Update: Trails Still Closed
We have had a number of inquiries regarding trails opening. Unfortunately there is not enough snow yet to properly prepare the trails or open them. We need a lot more snow for that to happen since we have very little on the ground currently. We are hoping to get snow this week but have no idea how much will fall. However the good news is it has been cold, which means marshes and other waterways are freezing. We all want to get those sleds out and ride. We will update you as conditions change and when the trails will open on our Cross Country Cruisers website and on Facebook. So for now, we all need to do the snow dance and send lots of prayers for snow.
Think Lots of Snow!!!!!
CROSS COUNTRY CRUISERS WINTERFEST CANCELED FOR JANUARY 2021
Unfortunately the Cross Country Cruisers Board has decided to cancel the January 8-9, 2021 Winterfest celebration and fundraiser. The decision was made due to the rising Covid-19 cases in our area. There are just too many health concerns to ignore and of course the health of our members, volunteers and attendees is paramount. There will be time (and good reason) to celebrate once things are brought under control, but for now, the Board is in agreement that we need to keep our volunteers healthy and able to perform the necessary tasks once the white gold descends upon our trails.
The WKSRA (Wisconsin Kids Snowmobile Racing Association) that has been in attendance for Winterfest the last couple of years has been notified and are looking forward to future events that we will be holding.
The 100 dollar Raffle tickets that were sold will be drawn on January 9th, 2021 at the Cross Country Cruisers Snowmobile Club meeting room at 1501 Helminski Drive, Arbor Vitae WI 54568 at 4 pm. We will try to do a Facebook live event of the drawing.
In light of the fact Covid-19 has taken away our fundraising opportunities in 2020 as well as Winterfest 2021, the funds required to keep our trails and equipment maintained this season may be running thin. Since we do not know when our next event might occur, if you would like to help support the Cruisers trail funds, please know it will be much appreciated.
Thanks to all of our members, volunteers and supporters past present and future, here is looking to a great snowmobiling season.
