Council’s Report:

Greg is resigning at the council, and election next meeting. He has put in over 20 years and we thank him for his dedication to representing our club and the council.

They are going to modify the easements and take out the word base. It will read need at least 6 inches of snow, not a 6 inch base.

There is still brushing to do from on the trail from Clear Lake to Clayton.

There is a DNR survey called SCORP – that is used for to help the government decide who gets what when someone is applying for a grant. It is for hikers, ATV riders, snowmobile riders – need to on and take this survey.

The Gandy Dancer is going to start logging this spring south of the Burnett County Line.  It is a 2 year contract and eventually will be going all the way South to St Croix Falls.

In the future, a GPS unit will be installed in all of the groomers. This will give a more accurate count of the groomed trails that is being turned in. They will know where the tractor is at all times.
