Good morning everyone.  I've have tried to do my best to rearrange my schedule to be able to attend the new dates for next week, but over the last couple of months, I have taken on new financial job responsibilities at work due to default and I can not be gone the first couple of days of the month.  It's just impossible for me to do :(     I was really thinking that the event would be cancelled, but as of right now it is still on.

I am not sure how many of you were still planning on attending since a portion of the events have been cancelled due to this Covid crap, but Jeff and Brett are still planning on going up on Friday morning and have been over to the island before, so you would be in good hand. 

2021 Jeep the Mac is planned for April 23rd & 24th and I already have it already on our schedule.  Hopefully things will be back to normal by then.  I will be checking with the hotel to see what kind of rate they will be able to offer again next year.

I am so sorry to have to deliver the bad and disappointing news to everyone, just seems like this year has been full of disappointments.  I hope that everyone that does attend this year enjoys themselves and has a great time! 

Thank you for your understanding.

 

 

 

 

 

Just wanted to give everyone a notice that Jeep the Mac will be Oct 2nd - 4th. Dan and I will be going up after work on the 1st.  Staging for the parade starts early Friday morning, parade through town and over the bridge usually begins around noon.  Once official registration opens for the event I will update the post.

Hotel info - Baymont Inn, St. Ignance 906-643-8411  Ask for Amy or leave a message and she will return your call.  Tell her you are with the Burby's for the jeep event so she can see what current rate she can apply.

Event is near Loganville Wi.  
This is a RL4WD members only event as they are covering insurance for the event. If you're not a member join here - https://rl4wd.com/member/join/online
All Road Legal 4WD vehicles welcome!

This is still a new property and trails are not marked or rated yet. We are limiting the ride to 10-15 rigs depending on the number of trail ambassadors

RSVP with Jason Knuth to confirm your spot and directions. 


Arrive between 12:30-1pm as we will be doing a safety check on all RL4WD taking part prior to hitting the trails by 1pm.

Dress accordingly. Stock Jeeps are welcome and encouraged to attend! 

Safety Check to Include: Front & Rear tow points and on-board fire extinguisher required on all RL4WD Trail events.

Rules: Must be a member of RL4WD to register yourself and guests. Everyone must sign in / sign the waiver before allowed to ride the trails.

Our events are family friendly and new trail rider friendly. If someone doesn’t have the experience of others, teach and share – don’t criticize. Feel free to ask about things! Our goal is for everyone to have a safe and enjoyable afternoon!

No littering! Let’s respect the property so we can continue enjoying the location in the future. No drinking alcohol before the event or on the trails.

We'll be meeting at the Cenex again to head over to one of the new RL4WD locations. We'll be brushing trails, skidding logs, and mapping trails. Bring plenty of water, over the ankle boots, layers of clothing, etc. Bring your badge. If you lost your badge, I can make you a new one - https://rl4wd.com/shop/Replacement-Badge-p184840448 

If bringing a chainsaw, please have eye, head, ear, and leg protection. Here's a whole kit for $80 https://amzn.to/2E92QRm as an example. There are about 5 or so tress down we need to cut up. 

Bring loppers, brush cutters, and such. There isn't too much ground cover in most areas so weed whackers won't really be needed. 

We'll break out into teams. The first objective is to tackle the trails closest to the road. We'll park at the base of the entrance and walk in. With 5-10 people, we'll make short work out of most of this. With 15-20 people we'll knock out all the brushing just after lunch I'd bet and enjoy the trails the rest of the afternoon. 

Do not cut logs short. Please cut straight logs 8'8", 10'8" or 12'8" so they can be harvested by the landowner. We want the tractor to be able to pass all trails and then make waypoints and bypasses where we hit the rocks and logs... and there are a lot of places to do that! Just don't cut down any trees without first clearing it with the landowner. He's been building these trails for 40 years, you won't have to worry about bushwhacking here much. We can make short work of clearing these trails. 

We'll number the intersections and map the property, but it won't likely go in the directory. It'll be available to Trail Ambassadors only who want to build a relationship with the landowner and then take small groups for rides out there from time to time. This property is simply amazing and would make a great supplement to Tigerton weekends being only 45ish minutes from the park. 

There isn't anything really to eat in the area so pack food with you. Again, bring plenty of water. I'll try and bring some thermoses and coffee and such as well. 

I'll bring the electric saw, brush cutters etc. people can use as well but it's best to bring your own gear. I might just bring the camper so I can bring the generator, bathroom, air compressor, etc. Airing down will be very useful here. 

Any questions, please post them. This will be for premium members only since those are the funds that'll make the signs and maybe gates if they want them. Waivers and rig checklists will be gathered. Bring a GMRS or Ham radio. If you don't have one get a cheap handheld from a box store or something like this - https://amzn.to/35NOCAO. We won't be in our rigs much when brushing so a handheld is a great tool.

Oct Camp Sinawa Trail Ambassador Field Day for Division 1 and 2. An online course must be done prior to this event. When you pay for the class, you'll get instructions on how to complete the online study guide. 

Event RSVP at: https://rl4wd.com/shop/Oct-2020-Camp-Sinawa-Trail-Ambassador-Field-Day-Training-p234446478 

Volunteering as a Trail Ambassador helps us keep and expand 4x4 trails and riding opportunities. This Trail Ambassador class involves a morning classroom session and afternoon hands-on skills session. Trail Ambassadors are needed to report trail conditions, help people out on the trails, and to host small rides at our private and public trail areas.

The morning class will be in the lodge. 

Sunday, we can do additional training for those who stay at the camp. 

Please RSVP your cabin, RV, or tent space with Ranger Sarah 920-827-6811 if you would like a heated cabin or RV/Tent space. Right now, they have a group in the dorm that weekend and a few cabins rented but mostly open if you want to use something. 

Ticket fees are for the background check, Trail Ambassador integration, membership card reprint with TGA info, TGA vests, and future RL4WD discounted memberships. You’ll get a 2-year extension on your RL4WD membership ($100+ dollar value). Our aim is to give you more value than the cost of the class. 

For the background checks, we look for things like recent violent crimes, sexual misconduct, OWI’s/DWI’s etc. We understand people have a past and that things done in your youth don’t represent who you are now many years later. If you want to talk about something in your background check, please feel free to contact Ryan Harden before paying for this event. 

This class certifies you as a Division 2 RL4WD Trail Ambassador through our https://trailambassador.com/ program here at the office. We are a recognized group within the WI DNR, DOT, Tourism, along with many other local, state, and federal agencies. 

Cost: $75 per person

Pre-Registration: https://rl4wd.com/shop/Oct-2020-Camp-Sinawa-Trail-Ambassador-Field-Day-Training-p234446478

Edit 2 - Due to the continued situation, WATVA, RL4WD, WC4WD and others agreed to move the meeting to April of 2021 so that the local land managers, DNR, Tourism, and Lawmakers can attend. By this time, vaccines will be out and state and federal officials will be allowed to come. 


Edit 1 - Due to the Coronavirus, our annual meeting in Stevens Point has been moved from April to Dec 4th-6th. 


 


Below is the outdated info from the physical meeting. 


 https://www.eventbrite.com/e/89638299567/ Our annual meeting will be at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Convention Center in Stevens Point, WI. It will be part of the first-ever joint motorsports convention of Wisconsin where we as a motorized community can work together to build relationships, trails, and networking. 


The event details are still forming, but we'll have vendors in the main halls, the Wisconsin ATV/UTV Association doing their annual meeting, RL4WDA doing our meetings and then some joint workshops and social times. 


We try and provide not only our annual member's meeting & board/finance meetings but also the Trail Guide Ambassador meeting awards banquet and more. 


The idea is to host sessions where all of us can work together on action plans, meet one another, then break out into our respective sessions and meetings.   


Tim from WOHVA and Luana from WI4X4 were also receptive to this idea, but it's not likely they will bring their own meetings to the same place (we do have room for them though). Something like this hasn't been attempted from our side or WATVA before, and we may even see the Wisconsin Off-Highway Motorcycle Assoc. there as well. Here was the 2019 motorized panel we were on, this was the first stage of this concept. https://www.facebook.com/watva/videos/vl.312752236075690/412486859312381. We also had folks from the MN4x4 there, though it was in a different capacity. 


Being able to work together as the 4x4 recreation and as motorized recreation as a whole is something we're going to try at this meeting. 


The location has ample parking, things for the kids to do, local restaurants within walking distance and more. Special room rates will be announced soon, the ink was just signed on the booking yesterday by WATVA. Please mark your calendars for this event and join us in helping build more trails, more clubs, more ambassadors, and keep this growth going the right way. 


We always have folks from the DNR, DOT, Tourism and more, many do presentations in the breakout sessions over the weekend. 


More to come as it develops. If this is a success, we'll make this a yearly meeting for the upper midwest.
