From the Secretary’s Desk

I think the Ground Hog was right and did not see his shadow. The weather is getting into the 50’s.

I hope you have all sent in your registrations for the Upper Midwest Recyclers Convention and Trade Show at Pam’s Auto in St. Cloud MN on April 14-16. This will be a good convention. The speakers look interesting and the trade show is filling up. I have included the attendee booklet in this newsletter. Please get your rooms booked and your registration sent in to Kelly. The tour of IRT on Thursday will be very interesting.

May 21st will be the Robert Morrison Memorial Golf Outing in Edgerton. This is a fun outing and benefits the Morrison Scholarship. The Morrison’s donate a $1500.00 scholarship to a qualified student. Please help support them.

August 20th will be the Bob Hoffmann Memorial Golf Outing in St Point. I will be sending out more info next newsletter. Last year was the first Bob Hoffmann Scholarship we awarded. I am happy to say our first person to receive this scholarship was Ryan Ross and Ryan has decided to join the CARS board of Directors. We will be having the August board of directors meeting on Friday night before the golf outing. Everyone is invited to attend the board meetings.

October 8th will be the CARS of Wisconsin Annual Meeting. It will be at the casino in Wisconsin Dells.

Supporting your association is important. We will have a new president this year and voting will be one of the most important things you do for this country. Supporting CARS is also important, there is a president, vice president and a board that needs your input to run this association.

Please join us to make your association great again.



A Winter Vacation
By Peter Krumenauer

I was lucky enough to win the week stay at The Beacon, the condo that CARS of Wisconsin raffles off each year thanks to Bob Hoffmann. The last week of January my wife and I headed out on our week vacation. Later in the week my sister in-law and 2 nieces joined us.

The snowmobiling was excellent with miles and miles of freshly groomed trails. Every other day we received a couple of inches of new snow which made the trees look spectacular and the trails better. We stopped in St. Germain at the snowmobile museum and checked out the classic’s plus a lot of prototypes. If you ever get up in that area I would encourage you to stop in and see the museum, there is no charge to go thru it. After a good ride we checked out a couple of good supper clubs in Minoqua - Norwood Pines and Marty’s. Both had very good food and old fashions. I would recommend if you ever get into Minoqua to try these supper clubs.

The Beacon is a very nice place, not high class but casual. Amenities include swimming pool, hot tub, laundry, fireplace in your condo, area to park snowmobiles, etc. At the CARS of Wisconsin Annual Meeting we will raffle the week stay at The Beacon again so if you want to win a free week vacation at the end of January come and buy tickets. If you win the use of the condo and wish not to use it you can always donate it to me!
