  • Comments Off on 2020 FRSC Raffle Ride for Hospice

For several years, the Forest Riders Snowmobile Club has held an annual Ride for Hospice. Last year the club raised over $6,000 for the CHI St. Joseph's Health Hospice Care. This year, our goal is to raise the same amount or exceed it! The 2020 Raffle Ride for Hospice is this week starting on Thursday, February 27 through Saturday, February 29 (click on the link for more info on the raffle). Get a group of friends and family together and ride by snowmobile or car to the sponsoring businesses! An after-ride get together will be at Clancy's with music by Lydia Rose and the R.A. Boys from 8pm-12am. Drawing for raffle prizes of $1,000, $500, and $200 at 10pm.

When you purchase a $5 raffle ticket, besides being entered into the drawing for the raffle prizes, you are also eligible for door prizes being given away by the participating business.

Trail Report: Last weekend's warm temperatures didn't affect our trails, they held up great! All our groomers are out and will do the entire system before the weekend. Unfortunately the chance for snow is slim, but ideal temperatures are in the forecast for the week.  Think snow!

 

 

 

 

Check out the Hospice Raffle Ride being held Thursday-Saturday, February 27-29 (under Events). This is a casual, ride at your own leisure event.  The more places you stop the more door prizes you'll be entered in. All proceeds will benefit Hospice!

 

Our annual CHI St. Joseph's Hospice Ride was a great success last year with a raffle raising over $6,000 for Hospice; we're doing it again this year!

We've even added a day to the event! On February 27-29, ride (or drive) to the following businesses and purchase a $5 raffle ticket. When you buy a ticket, you will also be entered in the business's individual drawing for a door prize with a minimum $50 value. The more stops you make, the more chances you'll have to be entered for multiple door prizes!

Trail Report: Friday, January 17, 2020

Minnesota and North Dakota are experiencing snow and blowing snow. It is predicted 5-9 inches of new snow will blanket the area today through tomorrow.  This is in addition to the 6+ inches of snow received earlier in the week.  Groomers were out all week and riders are reporting excellent trail conditions.

Caution: The club received a report of an approximate 5-mile portion of a trail that has been plowed. The area is located west of Itasca State Park on Trail 33 going south from Highway 113 to intersection F58 to F57 and east 2 miles on Trail 18. Today's snowfall should help make this area easier to travel. Please use caution when riding this portion of the trail.

Reminder: USXC Heartland 200 Race is Saturday and Sunday, January 18-19! Portions of eastern trails will be closed on Saturday and Sunday through late afternoon each day. Check out the race route map shown on January 14 trail report. Please plan to use alternate trails during these time periods. Groomers will be out grooming the race route trails after the race.

 

Thank you to our dedicated groomers for the long hours spent making the FRSC trails an outstanding and enjoyable trail system in our winter wonderland!

The area received 3+ inches of snow Monday night to Tuesday morning. Our groomers have been out on the trails the last couple of days. Here is the tentative grooming schedule for this week.

The weather forecast is predicting snowfall accumulations for tonight and Wednesday in the range of 3-5 inches. Heavier snowfall is predicted for Friday and Saturday.

With the upcoming snowfall, it is usually the club's practice to groom in the woods first, and then the ditches and open areas last (to allow for the plows to go through and people to clear their driveways). This week they will do what they can and also prepare to groom in conjunction with the USXC race.

 

USXC Heartland 200 Race - Saturday and Sunday, January 18-19! Join the excitement and watch the race along the route! Starting Wednesday, race route markers are being posted on the trails. FRSC trails will be open through Friday. Portions of our trails will be closed on Saturday and Sunday until early afternoon and open again later in the afternoon. Please refer to the race route map and plan your snowmobile rides accordingly.
