Woodtick Wheelers ATV/OHM Club
Super Bowl Update - Feb 1, 2018
Kickoff to 2018 — New Rides, New Gear, New Fun — The club board will soon be planning for 2018. Watch for more details!
Club Donation Adds Traction To Sheriff’s Polaris Ranger - Over the past 2 years, our club has donated a rescue insert, full cab and, most recently, a set of tracks to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, outfitting their Polaris Ranger for year-round use on Search & Rescue missions and countless other activities. All the accessories were purchased using funds obtained by the club through the Polaris TRAILS grant program, and in conjunction with the club’s Search & Rescue ATV Team. The club also acquired Polaris grants that paid for our ATV Safety Education Trailer, and youth vehicles used for safety training. The Ranger will be used again this year during the Eelpout Festival. Sheriff Tom Burch also reports that Deputies recently used the tracked Ranger to search for and find stolen ice fishing houses on local lakes.
Woodticks Don’t Hibernate - Especially when they own an ATV with a plow, or better yet a SxS complete with a cab, heater, lights and a plow. Many members use their ATVs and SxSs year round, including Woodtick board member Scott Meyers, shown here, all smiles, plowing his long driveway in his Polaris General.
“Dick’s Last Ice Fishing Trip” Nyssa Nypan organized a special event out on Stony Lake, honoring the memory of Dick Nytes, her dad and our good friend and founding club member.
To say Dick loved ice fishing is an understatement. One look at his RZR all geared up for winter, and a visit inside his totally outfitted ice house,
and you knew he was passionate about being out on Stony Lake … just as soon as there was hard water.
Many friends and family gathered out on the ice in late January for “Dick’s Last Ice Fishing Trip” to share stories and memories of Dick, who passed away on August 1st.
Rest in Peace, Dick.
Grab a balaclava and ride! Our club hasn’t organized a winter ride yet, but two clubs have. The Over The Hills Gang (Outing) and the Up North Riders (McGregor) have winter ATV rides on February 24th. Both have food. One has a prize drawing!
Watch for our club ad in 3 Visitor’s Guides this year.
We get a lot of emails and phone calls from people wanting to know where they can ride their ATVs in the area. The local chambers, folks behind the counter at Swansons, and many others direct people to our club throughout the year, to answer their questions about trails, road riding, rules and regulations. Apparently, despite our best efforts, not everyone knows about the “world-famous” Woodtick Wheelers yet, so we are placing our club ad in the Hackensack and Longville Visitor’s Guides, and this year also in the 2018 Leech Lake Vacation Guide. We also submit articles about the club to the Guides, and send press releases to all the local newspapers, about our meetings, club rides, Safety Training Classes and more. Invite your friends and family to join the club!
Where to mail renewal dues: A couple members asked that we post the club’s mailing address, so they can send in their annual dues for last year. If you haven’t renewed for 2017, please do. We will send out our annual dues notice for 2018 in early spring. The club address is: Woodtick Wheelers, PO Box 83, Hackensack, MN 56452.
Thanks for supporting the club and all we do in the area!
Contact us with your questions, comments and new ideas for the club, and let us know what ATV trails you’d like to ride this year.
