Fundraising is one of the most important activities of the Sno-Eagles
Did you know not all trails receive state funding? Proceeds from our fundraisers are used to help fund trail grooming programs. Even though snowmobile clubs receive state reimbursement for some of the trail preparation and grooming, that doesn’t come close to covering the expenses of maintaining snowmobile trails!
We receive state reimbursement for grooming and maintaining only a portion of our trail system. The remainder is groomed and maintained at the expense of the club.
Trail groomers cost more than $200,000 each – the cost of which is not reimbursed. The Sno-Eagles have three groomers. Fuel must be purchased, and groomer equipment must be insured and maintained – an additional cost for the club. Groomer drivers are paid from club revenue.
You can see how important fundraising is to ensure we’re able to maintain our trails in world class condition.
Throughout the year, we conduct various fundraisers to generate this needed revenue.
Our major fundraisers are:
- Ride with Pride Raffle
- Map Sales
- Community Partners Campaign
- Brat and Bale Sale
- Staffing the food concessions at WCDC events
These efforts are possible only through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers.
Please support our fundraisers!
