WASHBURN COUNTY -- Amy and Terry Blaschko, owners of The Still Bar & Grill on County E presented members of The Rolling Hills Snowmobile & ATV Club a check for $1,550 from proceeds from their winter weekly Bingo event.
Terry and Amy are ardent supporters of Rolling Hills who also host an annual kick ball tourney in early October. This check brings a total of over $2,000 to Rolling, preceded by two other previous checks from The Still.
These contributions are crucial to Rolling Hills, a completely volunteer club who maintains over 250 miles of snowmobile and 160 ATV trails in Washburn County. The club is reimbursed by the DNR for the hours spent in grading, brushing and grooming the county owned trails. This reimbursement is used to purchase and maintain grooming equipment.
In addition to an annual commitment to the county to maintain their trails, the club renews permits with over 100 private landowners to complete the intricate system of connected trails enjoyed by winter and summer outdoor enthusiasts from a 3 state area.
Rolling Hills also prints a trail map every year which are available at many sponsoring Washburn area businesses along with the Visitors office on River Street in Spooner. Over 30,000 maps are consumed with every printing.
