2021 Calendar Raffle Tickets

2021 Calendar Raffle Tickets are now available. Because of so many fund raising events cancelled this year due to Covid-19, our ticket sales are even more important for raising money. Let’s make this a great fund raiser again this year. Please contact Bill Lemke for tickets.

New Trail Managers and Equipment Manager

Great News! Bill Lemke and Don Schneider will be sharing the Trail Manager duties; Bill Farmer will be heading up the Equipment Manager duties: Steve Wolfe has offered to be available in a Trail Consulting role. “A Big Thank You to these guys for stepping up.”

We are always looking for volunteers for trail work and shop maintenance in fall, winter, and spring. Please reach out to any of our new managers if you are interested in volunteering. There will be work days posted on our Website and Facebook for upcoming work days in the very near future.

Club Concession Help

Our committee co-chairman, Mr. Bill Lemke is looking into the possibility of the club again doing concessions for the Fall Harley Ride and Minocqua Beef-A-Rama, if these events happen.

In order to proceed with his inquiry, Bill needs to have some idea of the number of volunteers he would have to work.

If you are interested and able to volunteer to work one or both of these functions, please call Bill at 715-432-0998 (cell) or 715-358-6005.

You can also e-mail him at moc.reitnorfnull@ekmelb

Volunteers Needed

With the recent resignation of the current Trail Boss effective 07/01/2020, the Cross Country Cruisers Board of Directors has decided to split the duties of this position, forming a Trail Boss/Manager position and an Equipment Manager position.

The Board is actively seeking two (2) volunteers to take on these positions with the duties of each as follows:

Trail Boss/Manager

1. Will organize volunteers for brushing and signing of trails in the fall.

2. Notify the Club Secretary about work days so an e-mail will go out to membership via Website and Facebook.

3. Solicit and manage trail groomer personnel, develop and post the Groomer Schedule.

4. Schedule Trail Inspections with County representatives.

5. Work alongside other club members regarding landowner agreements, updates, and changes.

6. Attend monthly Onieda and Vilas County Alliance Meetings and report at Board Meetings.

Equipment Manager

1. Keep and maintain equipment records of all Club equipment.

2. Manage Club volunteers for weekly maintenance day, typically Wednesday.

3. Responsible for scheduling major equipment repairs with suppliers as necessary.

4. Oversee maintenance of Club buildings and grounds.

Both of these positions are to report to Club Officers and attend Board of Director meetings in addition to general Club meetings.

Both of these positions will have voting rights regarding club issues, policies, etc.

For further information or to volunteer for either of these positions, please contact any Board Member, Club Officer as listed on our website or search
