November, 2017 News
The N.E.W. Low Buck Vintage Riders 14th Annual Show & Swap will be held on Saturday, December 2, 2017 but the “Crivitz Show” is NOT in Crivitz this year! The show & swap will be held at the Middle Inlet Fire Dept & Town Hall grounds located at W7901 Cty Rd X , on the corner of US HWY 141 and Marinette County Road X. Middle Inlet is just north of Crivitz and just south of Wausaukee, very easy to find. Share with your friends and spread the word, let them know about the new location.
Food & beverages available on the ground will be provided by the Middle Inlet Fire Dept. They will serve breakfast items, breakfast burritos (2 for $5), sweet rolls, coffee, juice etc. beginning at 7:00 AM. Lunch starts at 11:00 AM (brats, hot dogs etc.). Beverages, including coffee, beer, soda & hot chocolate, will be available throughout the day. Food sales are a fundraiser for the Fire Dept and they’ll also have some raffles going on during the day. Please show your support for the work they do. Folks will be there to manage traffic and the parking. They will direct show sleds and swappers to the right areas and take care of spectator parking as well. Please Do NOT park in any roped off areas. This is a working fire department that may get called out at any time and access to the fire department and the helicopter pad must be kept open.
Sled registration will be inside the Town Hall building beginning at 8:00 AM. Show sleds will be $2 each, not to exceed $10. No charge for spectators again and swap spaces are free; however, swappers are asked to make a $5 (or more) free will donation that will go directly to the Fire Dept. Please see the enclosed flyer for information and contacts. Volunteers are welcome to pitch in with whatever needs to be done.
Donations for the club’s raffles would be appreciated. Please ask your favorite business places to donate an item or donate one yourself. It would be helpful if you can get them to us before hand, but it’s OK to bring raffle donations to the show that day. See the attached club contact list if you want to make arrangements to drop items beforehand. Thanks in advance for your help with this.
DECEMBER 2, 2017 NEWLBVR SHOW & SWAP AT MIDDLE INLET, 8 AM-3:30 PM. NEW LOCATION!
It’s the time of the year to renew your club dues. Enclosed is a current membership form. You may complete it and send it along with your payment to the address listed. You may pay in person at the show. We also have the hassle free, convenient PayPal method available by going to our web site and clicking on that option, www.newlowbuckvintageriders.com. Membership in the NEWLBVR club qualifies you to purchase the required annual Trail Pass at the discount offered to club & AWSC members in good standing (for sleds newer than 35 years). When using PayPal, please list the spouse in the “Instructions to the Merchant” section! The Trail Pass is separate from your sled registration and must be purchased yearly. Go to www.awsc.org to apply for your discounted trail pass. Trail Passes are issued by and mailed to you from the DNR. Also visit the Wisconsin DNR web site, search word “snowmobile” for rules & regulations pertaining to Wisconsin snowmobile laws. Please remember separate rules apply to sleds 35 years and older! Effective April 10, 2014, an owner of a snowmobile with a model year 35 years or older may register that snowmobile as an antique snowmobile. Antique (vintage) registrations are done directly through the DNR. The AWSC deals only with trail passes for sleds newer than 35 years. See the DNR site for more info.
When I receive your club renewal, I input that into the AWSC data base as quickly as I can. You are then listed as a current paid member of the club & the AWSC and you will qualify for the discount when you go on line to apply for the trail pass. You will receive a yellow AWSC membership card in the mail too, but the AWSC sends those to the membership chair just 2X’s a month. I will send the cards to you as soon as possible after I receive them. You do not need your membership card in hand to apply for the trail pass. You do however need to have your AWSC membership number. You can’t get the trail pass without it. It can be found on the label of the Wisconsin Snowmobile News magazine or check last year’s card. Your AWSC number does not change from year to year, it will stay the same each year you renew your membership.
On behalf of the club, I would like to extend get well wishes to members and friends who are dealing with health issues. Get well soon, Dave Rische, Pat Mullarky, Jim Faubert & Dave Schultz. We miss you & need you back and healthy! Seems like this has been a very unhealthy year for many people so best wishes to all of our members who have health issues.
Do you have an idea for a club ride or an event for the club to participate in? Please share ideas with any of the contacts listed below. We’d like to get some rides going this year and as of now there is only one event on the calendar. Thunder Lake Lodge’s annual “Richard Schmidt Memorial Ride/Poker Run” will be Saturday January 27, 2018. This ride was always the last week in Feb. but they’ve had bad snow conditions lately. By moving it up to the last Saturday in January, they’re hoping for much better conditions, and so are we. The ride will meet at and leave from Thunder Lake Lodge and make a few local poker stops, then return to Thunder Lake Lodge for food, fun & prize. More information will be shared as the date gets closer. So, please consider something fun for the club to do this winter. At least get it on the event calendar, we can work out the details later on. We’d like to concentrate more on riding the sleds and having fun than anything else this year. Less work and more fun sound good to you?
‘Tis the season for change, apparently. There is a new location for the show. There are some new people involved in helping with the show as well as some changes to the show’s format. Jeff Schwaller resigned as club president and show coordinator and brother Bear Schwaller resigned as Vice President. Dave Rische was recovering from heart surgery so was unable to help out. My first inclination was to give up too. But thankfully, some of the members came forward to help with the show and volunteered to serve as officers and share the responsibilities. They said they enjoy the club, think it’s a good thing and want to help keep it together. I personally appreciate the fact that they volunteered and I’m sure all of us will work with them to make the NEWLBVR a fun club to belong to. My apologies for being behind on club related matters, but we’ve had serious health issues to deal with so we’ve been away from home a great deal. But, it’s time to carry on and get it done! We’ll be setting up a meeting schedule which will be sent to everyone as soon as it’s finalized. Meetings will most likely be on Sunday mornings (weekends for sure) in the Wausaukee-Pembine area. The officers will serve until next fall when we’ll have elections and you’re all welcome to add your name to the list of candidates at that time. For now, it’s great to have some new, younger people involved and I look forward to working with them. I hope you will give them your support as well.

We are hoping to add another director or 2 so if you’re interested in volunteering for that, contact us.
I hope to see many of you at the Show again this year. We’re hoping for good weather and a good turnout. Keeping our hopes up that the change of location won’t affect attendance. Another newsletter will go out following the show to wrap up the event. By then we hope to have some rides and events to share with you. If you belong to another club and have an event coming up, send me the info. We’ll be glad to share it with our members.
