2019 Show plans are falling into place but as always we are looking for some volunteers to help us with a few things. Could you help set up on Friday afternoon, register sleds, work with the bucket raffles, help with parking, collect the swap fees, help with unloading & loading sleds & swap, judging and trophy presentations? If you or your business would be willing to donate items for the bucket raffles, that would be very helpful and much appreciated. Please try to get the donations to us before Friday, Dec. 6th. Donations can be left with any one of the officers or board members. Their contact info is attached. You can also call Pat or Patti at 715-324-6020 to make other arrangements and to let us know what area you can help with. We’re still accepting $30 trophy sponsorships so there’s some time to get in on that. But act quickly! Please make checks out to NEW Low Buck Vintage Riders and mail to N17166 Marek Road, Pembine WI 54156.
Plans for this year’s show are about the same as past years for the NEWLBVR club; $3 per Show Sled, ($10 max), $5 Swap Spaces and FREE ADMISSION FOR SPECTATORS. There will be designated parking & unloading areas so follow the signs & the fire dept. guys who’ll be directing traffic. Do NOT block the fire dept building and entrance. Registration begins at 8 AM inside the Town Hall. A list of the classes will be posted on the web site and on our Face Book page. I hope to get some additional show info posted as well—so again, watch the web & FB!
Come hungry! Do not stop any place else for breakfast! The newly formed Middle Inlet Fire Dept. Auxiliary has some exciting changes planned! They’ll be serving a “Fresh Farm to Table” breakfast, beginning at 7 AM. Breakfast will feature locally processed fresh maple syrup, bacon, farm fresh eggs and hash browns. Hot chocolate made from a “secret recipe” will be available. This isn’t instant hot chocolate from an envelope! It’s the real thing! (Bring your own schnapps). Breakfast menu will include French toast & syrup, scrambled eggs, bacon & hash browns! Lunch will include hamburgers, French fried potato chips and chili. Coffee, water, soda & beer will be available. And if that doesn’t fill you up, they’re having an “all homemade bake sale” throughout the day. All food & beverage sales go directly to the Middle Inlet Fire Dept. They’re planning a 50/50 raffle and will sell fire dept. T-shirts & everyone will enjoy hanging around the cozy outdoor fire pit—a perfect place to visit and swap stories. It’ll be a fun day! But there’s work to be done so let’s get after it! Help, please!
A “2020 Calendar of Events” is attached, along with a contact person for each ride. Keep this handy, keep the dates open, plan to come on along and join in the fun! As always, rides & events are subject to trail conditions at the time. There are some new ideas being tossed around for some additional vintage fun too. We’ll have more info about all the rides and any additional events that come up in future newsletters. If you have a suggestion for an event, please share it with us. Also keep an eye on our Face Book page and our web site for updates. Those are the first places the news gets posted. It’s the quickest & easiest way to keep in touch. Please share the information in our posts with friends who are members but do not use the Internet.
As the membership chair for this club, you could really help me out by renewing your dues ASAP! Please. You may pay by mail or use the PayPal option available on the web site www.newlowbuckvintageriders.com If you use PayPal, please include the spouses name in the area for “instructions to merchant”. Beginning this season, the NEWLBVR dues are $20 for a family membership (which includes your $12 AWSC dues) or $8 for those who have already paid their AWSC dues through another club. Please include your email address, saves time and lots of postage. Also, beginning this season, the NEWLBVR memberships will all expire on June 30th of every year to coincide with the AWSC membership year and to simplify the trail pass process. Be sure your membership name and the name you use to register your sleds and use for your trail pass, match. For example, if it’s “Robert” on one, don’t use “Bob”, “Bobby” or “Rob” on the other. Whenever you want to check your AWSC membership status or if you need your AWSC membership number, log onto www.awsc.org and click on “member information”. Or contact Patti and I’ll try to help, 715-324-6020. The AWSC sends out the yellow membership cards twice a month and I mail those as soon as I get them. You do not need that card in your hand to get your trail pass, but you do need your membership number. That number stays the same from year to year. The number can also be found on the mailing label of the Wisconsin Snowmobile News magazine.
There was a club meeting on October 13th. Members discussed upcoming rides, working at getting back to having “more fun” and doing more social/community events as a group. We discussed the show and talked with a representative from the new Fire Dept. Auxiliary. They are the main planners for their part of the show, with help from the fire dept. It’s a new group who aren’t that familiar with the way the show works. But they have some great new ideas and ways to promote it and their fundraisers that day. Many of the older fire dept. personnel who helped us other years are no longer involved. Our club would like to express our gratitude to all of those fire dept members who helped us so much in the past, for all the work they did, especially in setting up outside, clearing the lot of snow, directing traffic etc. We look forward to working with the new volunteers. As a result of the October meeting, we have some new officers and changes. President is Pat Mullarky, Vice President is Ryan Oswald, Secretary/Treasurer is Patti Mullarky, board members are Dave Rische and Jim Schuh. Thank You to Sara Oswald for serving as secretary until becoming a new business owner demanded all of her time & energy. Good luck Sara! We’re sure you’ll do well! Maybe some of our members could plan a vintage pinch to the NoWhere Pub? Good news ‘tho, Sara says she’ll still work on Sassy Sara’s Safari! Thanks to Jim Schuh for filling in as president and welcome on as a board member. Due to lack of a volunteer, we have once again combined the secretary and treasurer jobs. If someone would volunteer for secretary, we’d surely consider that. Please note: Patti is searching, high and low for someone to help with the secretary’s duties, maybe take minutes & help with the newsletter etc. Please contact President Pat if you are interested in doing secretary “stuff”. TIA!
See you at the Show!
