Snowmobile trails are currently CLOSED. Please remember to respect our landowners and stay off the trails when they are not open. Be sure to call the Waushara County Trail Hotline at (920) 787-0411 for the most current status.

We are sorry to report all Waushara County snowmobile trails must be closed from 12/24/17 to 1/1/18 due to the WDNR gun/deer Holiday Hunt. This year our trails will not open until January, pending trail conditions.

The decision for the Holiday Hunt Event in Waushara County is final for this year per the ordinance made
by County Deer Advisory Council (CDAC). The Hunt is for Doe’s only. The CDAC decides if the deer population
needs to be decreased and the only method available is the Holiday Hunt. Extending the hunting season is not an
option per State Law. The issue for next year will be on CDAC’s agenda either in February or March, 2018. Clubs
are urged to monitor CDAC’s website to determine when the issue will be discussed and have Club Members and
affected businesses attend the meeting to express their concerns. It is recommended snowmobile clubs be very careful that their actions do not alienate their landowners. AWSC has stated they will not get involved with this issue.

Metz Ridge Runners, Inc

Recognizing that we are more than a social club as our primary purpose is grooming and maintaining our snowmobile trails for the benefit of our community without regard to club membership, we have created a new corporation: Metz Ridge Runners, Inc. This corporation has been granted a favorable Tax- exempt status, 501(c)(3) by the IRS and is now exempt from paying state sales tax as well. Furthermore, any contributions we receive are generally tax deductible by the donor.
We recently purchased land to build our own clubhouse on for storage of our groomer, drag and other equipment. It is on 36 Drive in between Apache and Archer. A building committee has been formed and plans will should be coming soon!
