Club News North Lake Nomads Snowmobile Club County Line Snow Busters Waukesha County, Wisconsin By Susan Keel Dane County, Wisconsin By George Minkel Club members Dennis and Wendi Pipkorn, March Birch and Charlotte Powers presented the North Lake Food Pantry with a check for $409 representing a recent accumulation of charitable dollars raised by the North Lake Nomads to help community members in need. Dennis and Wendi Pipkorn are also involved in the Waukesha County Snowmobile Association and not only help with the food pantry, trail maintenance and the county’s scholarship fund but are now heading up an initiative to have all trail intersections marked for emergency rescue operations. The club’s annual St. Patrick’s Day landowners’ party was held at Randy and Cindy Pages barn on Saturday, February 22. Corned beef and cabbage provided by Rookies was served to thank the landowners for giving us the privilege of crossing their lands. The sport of snowmobiling would not exist without the generosity of the landowners. This year, we had a special guest, Miss Snowflake Chelsie Popp, to help thank them personally. The club has about 75 members and supports the 67-mile trail system through Black Earth and Mazomanie. We have 117 landowners on our trial system.
