SPOONER, WI -- The Rolling Hills Snowmobile & ATV Club of the Spooner area hosted their all-volunteer member Annual Landowners Picnic at the Trego Park Campground on Sunday August 15, 2021.
One hundred club members and their Landowner guests enjoyed a pig and turkey roast prepared by Tracks Restaurant owner Dave Larson.
Julie Predni, owner of The Prime Restaurant in Trego provided potato salad, coleslaw, and baked beans.
Club members added an assortment of desserts.
A raffle and door prizes topped off the day with several items including a $100 gift certificate from Wild River Sports.
Club President, Rick Fetkenheuer extended a well appreciated thanks to the landowners for their continued use of their property to join Washburn County trails in a seamless network of over 250 miles of trails. Rolling Hills has a reputation of having the best riding trails in NW Wisconsin.
Our trails are maintained almost daily by over 20 volunteers who grade, cut brush, and groom the trails in the beautiful forests of Washburn County.
Countless money is spent almost year around by outdoor enthusiasts coming to the greater Spooner area to have fun and visit our hardware, antique stores, car parts stores, motels and bars and restaurants.
Standing by the New Holland tractor (one of two) is President Rick Fetkenheuer and Doug Gruner, club maintenance chief. Doug spends hours year-round making sure our equipment is in tip top shape, buying parts and supplies locally.
Club activities director Diane Voight introduces President Rick Fertkenheuer as he delivers a welcome address to the Landowners and club members.
