The ATV/UTV parade will form at 9:30AM at the Red Arrow Clubhouse (16712 Hummingbird Hill Lane Townsend, WI 54175). Riders will parade to Old Town Hall Bar & Restaurant at10:30. All ATV and UTV owners are invited to participate in the parade. Come ride with this year’s parade Marshall long time Red Arrow club member Ron Popp. Ron has been a member since 1993 and recently served on the Board of Directors for six years. He was a snowmobile groomer driver and always ready to lend a hand when club work needed to be done. Trail brushing, working at club events and selling hundreds of dollars of raffle tickets for each club event kept Ron busy.
He was still able to find time to ride his snowmobile and ATV thousands of miles each riding season. Ron and his wife Mary Ann recently moved to Little Chute but Ron still comes “up nort” regularly to ride and help the club. You do not have to belong to a club to participate….we have a drone coming to video the parade & the event, so come help us attempt to again break the Oconto County record for the most ATV’s and UTV’s in a parade.
Come to the Corn Roast by ATV, UTV, car, truck or van….everyone is invited to attend this great “family friendly” event. Old Town Hall Bar & Restaurant. It is located right on Hwy 32 and the Nicolet ATV/UTV/Snowmobile in Townsend. Direct ATV/UTV access is available from as far as the City of Gillett to the south, Florence, Forest and Marinette counties and Michigan trails at Iron River.
All proceeds from this event will go directly into maintaining and improving the Snowmobile and ATV trails in the Townsend area. Red Arrow is responsible for about 65 miles of snowmobile trail and about 15 miles of ATV/UTV trails including the Nicolet State Recreational Trail thru Townsend.
Red Arrow thanks Josh & Cassie Banie, owners of the Old Town Hall Bar & Restaurant, for their strong year round support of the Red Arrow Snowmobile ATV Club.
