    well first set up weekend is in the books and things look good and will be better when it dries out. we reclaimed the Dump hero for this year and added a bunch of nice trail:clap. there is some construction happening on another section and when that's done other members say we should gain at least another 3/4 to mile of single track. but they say it snowed again this morning, at least its not sticking to the ground anymore!

    Warm weather is in the forecast so with some luck conditions will continue to improve. Looks like mid 60's for a few days in a row...Hopefully:D

    There were ticks in the U.P. late last week. I had three of them partying on me.

    we the weather seems to be turning.... for the better. last weekend we got most of the 20 miles of hero sections cleared and the route dialed in, next weekend the crew will be up to finish and hopefully get to ride a few of the sections. we just need everyone to sign up and plan to show up. looks like a great route with some nice changes and the revival of the dump section after a few years.

    the hard working members of the WI DSR will be heading back to Wabeno this weekend to finalize all the trails, pre ride all the hero sections and make sure everything is ready for the event in a couple weeks. registration closes on May 31 and you don't want to miss out on this event. . Hope to see you in Wonderful Wabeno- Dual Sport Capitol of the World!

    The last work weekend went well. We got a lot accomplished and look forward to riding all the hero sections we worked on.

    Trails were dried up with minimal water spots. I did not have high hopes when it began snowing when I drove up Friday :huh The fire danger signs all read "very high" in the area.

    The food was OK if you're into steak/lobster, fine cheese, olives and that kind of thing :lol3:lol3:lol3 ....WE ATE REAL WELL!!! The benefits of being a club member on a work weekend.

    Registration is filling up, so get those registrations in and bring a friend.:ricky:ricky

    See ya in Wabeno.
