A good weekend of snowmobiling

Area snowmobilers took advantage of the snow and open snowmobile trails to get out and ride this weekend. There was a lot of traffic using the trail to and from Pewaukee Lake. You can support our club’s efforts to keep that trail open by joining the club or by purchasing a Waukesha County trail map at Gina’s Sports Dock, Curly’s Waterfront, Carlee’s or at Don and Roy’s Motorsports.

Moon Shiners help breast cancer patients

The Moon Shiners Snowmobile Club made a $300 donation to Pink Ribbon Riders, a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to men and women battling breast cancer. The donation was made in support of club member Chloe Krumenacher, 19, who raised funds for the organization by participating in the annual St. Germain Bikini Radar Run on February 3, 2018. In all, Chloe and her family raised over $1,450 for Pink Ribbon Riders.

Several Moon Shiners Snowmobile Club members have had family members and friends battle this disease so the decision to support this organization made sense and were happy to give back to those in need.

Trail Pass Error

It appears the new sticker vendor that the State hired “inadvertently” sent out NON-Resident trail passes instead of Resident trail passes. This first came to light the afternoon of Sept. 19. Initially, it was thought only a few people were affected, however that was not the case!

If you have received the wrong trail pass – please call the WI DNR – 888.936.7463. They are still in the planning stages of how they are going to rectify this situation, but they will take your information and be sure you get the correct trail passes. Members will have to return the NON-Resident passes so please hang onto them to send back.

Please help her meet her goal to raise $6,000 for this cause. No matter how cold it is, she’ll be going all out to get her sled down the 660′ ice drag strip in the fastest possible time. You can support her by making a donation on her GoFundMe page. Please make a donation here.
