Landowner’s Dinner Postponed:   Saturday April 28   6 pm  Clauson’s Barn

Important Information from Alan:

Just got back from the Waushara county snowmobile meeting, the feeling of the other members that attended Monday nites meeting was the same. We are facing the strong possibility of not being able to open our trails until January 31st if the deer advisory council has their way. We need you to go to the dnr website and post your comments in opposition to the holiday hunt.
If you have that’s great, if you haven’t you have until the end of tomorrow to do so April 12th.
Wednesday April 18th is the meeting at the Waushara county court house, we need your support.I am meeting some members at the Coloma hotel at 6:15pm to ride together. I have room for 3 more if interested meet us there. This is important we need to show up in numbers to keep our snowmobile season.
Thank you
Alan

Background:

Holiday Hunt has been proposed for the beginning of January with bow season to follow until January 31st.  This would mean snowmobilers, cross country skiers, snowshoers, & hikers would not be using our trails until February 1.

As of this date the proposal for Waushara County is NO.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT AND SUPPORT THAT DECISION.

History of the Club

Our club logo was created when the club was founded in the early ’70’s.   It was a contest and was created by Dick Netzer, then 14.

We recently received this from Dick: “I googled Coloma, WI just to see what my old home town was up to. When I ran across the Coloma Pathfinders Snowmobile Club website. To my delight I was surprised to see the patch I designed way back in 1971 when I was 14 years old is still in use. I was then named a life member, but throughout the years had moved to Olympia, WA. I just wanted to say Hi and thank you for and old memory. My dad, Bob Netzer, used to own the meat packing plant south of town “Coloma Meat Products”. We were one of the first to own a snowmobile in Waushara County along with Carl Leitz and others. One of the main trails used to come through our yard. When a group of people wanted to ride we would stop and ask others if they wanted to join along. Before you’d know it we’d have 20 to 30 sleds. I really miss snowmobiling as we don’t really get any snow east of the Cascades. Thanks for a trip down memory lane.
Blessings,  Dick Netzer”
