There is one constant, everything changes. There have been many changes in the past few months. Another change of seasons, fall is getting colder, the days are getting shorter. Hunting seasons are here, and yes, snowmobile season is coming too. There has been a change in Snowmobile Alliance, and I think a good change. There is new leadership, new ideas, and new cooperation going on. Better cooperation between snowmobile clubs and ATV clubs, and with County and Federal Forest. Meetings are open to all, and members of ATV clubs are joining in. I for one am very glad to see it.

The Iron River Area Chamber of Commerce recently sponsored the Northern Pines Sled Dog Race (February, 2019). Several members of the Trails North ATV club volunteered to assist with this winter time event.
The race starts and finishes at the beautiful Northern Pines Golf Course and Event Center. Situated in the Bayfield County Forest, this sprint race is an exhilarated down hill run through the golf course entering the Bayfield County Trail system and the Tri-County Corridor. Spectators experienced the excitement of the race from several vantage points on the center grounds and along the trail route.
The two links below show short videos of this very exciting event.
Please also look at the “new” version of the “Why Join Trails North” video. Look for its link under the Hot Topics section of our website.
One of the presentations at our recent meeting was to introduce a smart phone and tablet App called Avenza Maps. This free mapping program will show your location on the trail and also leave a “track” highlighting your direction of travel. For those who may need just a little help in locating your position, this is one addition to your mobile device that you may want to consider. Did I mention that all the maps saved to your device are in a pdf format that do NOT require an Internet connection? You only need a mobile device that has a GPS location function and your set to go.
The Trails North ATV website now provides information regarding the Avenza Map App and instructions on how to download specific maps like the "Bayfield County ATV" map and to record GPS tracks as you travel. Do you have any questions? If so, please contact our website coordinator Frank Stone.
