Big turnout, big fun

Richfield, WI - April 11, 2021 - After the snow melts and the sleds are put away for the season, what else is there to do other than heading out to your local bowling alley to knock down some pins with your friends.

"We had a great turnout this year", said Andy Slaby, WCSA Youth Committee event organizer. He continued by saying, "We had 35 youth bowlers attend, which is a record for this event. Many thanks to everyone who helped and the clubs who pitched in to underwrite this event."

Thanks to snow conditions on Saturday, February 2nd 21 youth snowmobilers and their families were able to ride together on the trails of Waukesha County. The annual Youth Ride is an event organized by the Waukesha County Snowmobile Association for members of any Waukesha County snowmobile club so young snowmobilers can ride the trails with a parent or they can ride their snowmobile by themselves if they earned their snowmobile safety certificate. It's a great way for young riders to gain some experience. Check out some of the photos from this year's event.

Lack of snow couldn't stop

these young snowmobilers

 

Merton, WI – There was just enough snow to let the young snowmobilers ride their 120s around the groomed track during Waukesha County Snowmobile Association's annual Youth Ride and Bonfire event held at Monches Recreation Park in the Town of Merton. The goal of the event, which was held Saturday, February 4, 2017 is to share the snowmobile experience with the youth.

 

Waukesha County Groomer Corp. provided the kids rides in the Tucker Sno-Cat trail groomer and all had an opportunity to create their own snowmobile themed craft project. Had there been enough snow they would have taken a group ride on the nearby snowmobile trail system.

 

The day was made possible with help from the Merton Flake Chasers Snowmobile Club along with donations and support from the Stone Bank Schneelaufers, Eagle Kettle Moraine Riders, Golden Lake Independant Drifters & Enthusiasts, North Lake Nomads, Pewaukee Moon Shiners, Oconomowoc Throttle Jockeys and Lake Country Last Call snowmobile clubs.

 

Event organizers Andy and Jodi Slaby and Becky Tetzlaff of the Merton Flake Chasers Snowmobile Club also wish to thank Joe Schiller, Karen Jeras, Mike Kotlarek, Marty Iverson from A.J. Iverson Heating & Air Conditioning, Chad Reimer Painting Services and Gary Bucheger For making this event fun for our youth.

Club Involvement Pays Off

Educational scholarships awarded to area students

 

Hartland & Oconomowoc, WI - It was a great end to a rather mild winter for Miranda Stapelfeldt of Oconomowoc and Rudolph “Rudy” Otters of Hartland. Miranda and Rudy were recently awarded $750 educational scholarships each from the Waukesha County Snowmobile Association (WCSA).

 

The WCSA awards only two scholarships each year and this year the scholarship committee chose Miranda and Rudy. In order to be considered the applicant or their family must be a member of a Waukesha County snowmobile club, they must be a graduating high school senior or a student currently enrolled at a college or technical school, be an active members in his or her club and truly love the sport of snowmobiling.

 

Miranda, 23, is currently a member of two snowmobile clubs, the North Lake Nomads and the Schneelaufer Snowmobile Club in Stone Bank where she is currently serving as the club's treasurer. For Miranda, the scholarship will be applied towards getting her Associates degree in accounting at Waukesha County Technical College.

 

Rudy, 17, grew up in a snowmobiling family. His parents belong to the North Lake Nomads Snowmobile Club and over the past 5+ years Rudy has helped stake and brush the snowmobile trails their club maintains each winter. This fall, Rudy will be studying to become an electrician at Waukesha County Technical College.

 

“All of the funds awarded to Miranda and Rudy were raised and donated by fellow snowmobilers from the 17 Waukesha County Snowmobile Clubs,” said Wendi Pipkorn, Scholarship Committee Chair. “The committee was honored to award these two outstanding young people with an educational scholarship this year.”

 

The annual scholarship program is just one of many programs the Waukesha County Snowmobile Association funds to promote youth involvement in this 100% volunteer supported organization. For more information on the Waukesha County Snowmobile Association visit their Web site at waukeshasnow.org.

WCSA Hosts 2016 Youth Ride

Waukesha County Snowmobile Association let the kids play

 

Merton, WI –  It was a day of fun for the children of members who belong to one of the 17 snowmobile clubs in Waukesha County. The first annual Waukesha County Snowmobile Association's Youth Ride & Bonfire event was held at the Monches Recreation Park in the Town of Merton on Saturday, February 6 with help from the Merton Flake Chasers Snowmobile Club. While parents kept warm around the bonfire there was just enough snow for the children to run the pint-size snowmobiles around the track, drivers from Waukesha County Groomer Corp. gave rides in the groomer to anyone who asked and every child received a raffle ticket to win one of the many donated door prizes. For 15-year-old Savannah Steinmann of Oconomowoc, who recently aced her snowmobile safety test, it was an opportunity to drive some of the bigger sleds around the track, too.
