Had a good weather and great time at the fair. Thanks to all the volunteers.
This Saturday, Feb 10th, we will be having our club shelter ride. The club will be providing hotdogs, chips, hot chocolate, and water. Feel free to bring anything else you may need. We will meet at the shelter at 9:00am, go ride until noon and meet back at the shelter for the bon-fire and wienie roast. If you don’t feel like the ride, just meet at the shelter around noon for the rest of the festivities.
The shelter is on Trail 42 between County Road K and the intersection with Trail 12.
Due to poor trail conditions in the Solon Springs area, the Club Safari this weekend has been moved to the Prentice / Phillips area. Solon Springs only received a dusting yesterday and the high temperatures last weekend caused the trails to deteriorate. Prentice had 8+ inches of snow yesterday and trails are being groomed.
If you reserved a room at St. Croix Inn in Solon Springs, you can cancel within 48 hours of your planned check-in without penalty. Please call them to cancel today – (715-378-4444).
The new accommodations for our Club Safari is in Prentice, WI:
|COUNTRYSIDE MOTEL – Accommodations|
|W5370 Grandberg Rd|
|Prentice, WI 54556|

Please call Countryside Inn to reserve your room. Rooms with 2 Queen beds are $76 for Thursday, $86/night for Friday/Saturday. No pool or bar, but they have a small sitting area on the 2nd floor that they’d turn into a small gathering space. They also have good parking.

Let’s get SNOW and MEMBERS to fill the rooms this year. It is a nice cozy place, and we can ride in/out to all the local trails.
We have a block of 15 rooms under the Osceola Sno-Goers name for Jan 26th-27th (weekend prior to the Super Bowl).
- – rooms facing roadside @ 87.90/night
- – rooms facing lakeside @ 119.90/night
**if anyone wants to come early, e.g. Thursday or stay Sunday, those nights are $60/each
Club members should call to reserve under their name (715-378-4444) and reference the club group reservation. Ask them to deduct the room block count. If we exceed the count and they have availability, they will honor these rates.
**If no snow, we should make a decision at least one week prior to cancel – Kathy is our contact at the hotel.

As a non-profit organization, the Osceola Valley Sno-Goers snowmobile club raises funds to support local snowmobile trail access, development, and maintenance for all to enjoy. We also use the funds we raise to give back to our community. On December 4th, we made a donation to the Open Cupboard to help fill their food shelves to fight hunger. On behalf of the Open Cupboard, pictured here is Rosanne Anderson accepting a check from our club Vice President, Rick McGuiggan.
The recent Wisconsin DNR-sponsored Snowmobile Safety class put on by our club at Osceola High School was a huge draw. We had 28 kids from the Osceola area participate. Our club paid all entry fees for the participants. Thanks Duane Wolter and other volunteers for your time and effort to offer this important training to our local kids.
