Secretary’s report:

Treasurer’s report

  • Approved as read by Frank.  
  • Remember to get your membership in early to avoid the rush in the event of an early trail opening!
  • Starting new accounting fiscal year on July 1 so last year 2021/22 accounting will appear strange due to no fair revenue.  Future years however should make sense and follow the membership year.


  • No new information reported.

Council Report:

  • Eric reported that the county will be transferring our groomer funding of trail 12 to the Stower trail.  This results in an overall gain of 5 miles.  Based on the reoccurring use issues with the Stower trail, the club would like to keep trail 12 open and groomed (Trollhaugen to KAOS shelter) for another year and revisit this on a yearly basis.  

Trail Bosses Report:  

  • Scott reported that we will have 1 alfalfa field claim.  Scott to let Frank know damage amount for budget.
  • Looking for someone to take on the trail area behind Woodhill spur consisting mainly of a snow fence and 5-6 signs.
  • Still working through issues with the trail through the New Life Church parking lot in Dresser.  Eric to contact Matt at the City of Dresser to work through a few minor trail issues. 
  • Duane that the bridge behind the art barn has cement issues due to beaver dams.  Cement will need to be redone in some areas.  

KAOS Youth Club: 

  • No meetings during the summer.  Next meeting in September.
  • Kevin reported that a new Polaris donation request was submitted for future raffle items.

  • Volunteer sign up sheets for Friday through Sunday shifts were circulated at the meeting and will also sent out via email by Kevin.
