Gartzke Clean up day is set for Sat. Oct. 25 beginning at 8 am. We need help preparing trails for winter. No experience necessary.
Mike Winski will be there around 8:00am, but come whenever you can make it. We will start in the parking area and then move to the Main Shelter. Mike will have maps in the shelter with project jobs listed. If no one is at the shelter when you arrive just pick a job or look for crews already working. We are planning to work from approx. 8am till 3pm. Lunch will be provided by the club around noon. Water, drink, chili, crackers, etc. will be provided. SO PLEASE ADVISE IF YOU THINK YOU WILL BE JOINING US FOR LUNCH. Dress for the weather, if it is a rain out we will pick another day.
Here are some scenes of the fun at previous work days.
New Board Members:
Terms for president Katelyn Filbrandt and board member Ralph Utke have expired. They have been replaced by Alan Berger and Don Mollet. Thank you Katelyn and Ralph for your work.
Attention All Bicyclists: New Riding Opportunity:
There is now a mile long loop for a single track bike trail just south of Antigo (N1985 Dump Rd.) This is the site of the old landfill which has been capped. This effort was made possible through collaboration between the city and the Antigo Bike & Ski Club.
The city greatly appreciates the support and vision of Josh Zalewski and all the time he spent flagging the trail and attending meetings. Brady Koss did an excellent job assisting the trail crew with placing the initial loop in the fall of 2013. Here is the work crew after some trail maintenance on Oct.11, 2014
Gartzke has an official address of W6379 Fifth Ave.
