Volunteers make us a successful snowmobile club!
Volunteers are the most critical element of our snowmobile club. The Sno-Eagles maintains an extensive trail system. This comes with great cost. Fundraising is the main way to raise the needed funds. Volunteers enable us to fundraise.
It’s a year-round effort – from the summer brat and bake sales to our major winter fundraisers such as the Groom to Ride raffle. From committee planning to the people that arrive early and leave late working the events, these are the folks that make it happen!
Please consider volunteering for any of our programs to help us continue raising the needed funds so we all can enjoy snowmobiling here in the Eagle River area.
Volunteers are the power behind the Sno-Eagles!
NEW Volunteer Opportunities
Due to our expanded fundraising role in the community we’re seeking individuals to fill several positions.
Rather than having one event coordinator for all our events, having individual coordinators for each event may be more realistic. Therefore, we are seeking event-specific coordinators for the following events:
- Pond Hockey – February 10-12, 2023
- Cranberry Fest food booth – October 7-8, 2023 (We have a coordinator for this event!)
- Cash Raffle – Labor Day Saturday, 2023
- Groom to Ride Raffle – April 1, 2023
- Downtown food booth Labor Day Arts & Craft Show – September 3, 2023
- Brushing Days lunches – October 2023
- Christmas Dinner – December 2023
The event-specific coordinator oversees the event ensuring the event runs smoothly. Activities include securing and preparing all items needed for the event.
Some typical tasks for the event-specific coordinator may include ordering supplies, food, tables, chairs, etc.
Volunteers to work the event will be recruited through our usual electronic signup, Time To Sign Up. You will not need to find volunteers.
Please consider volunteering to coordinate any of these events. We’ll provide support, mentoring, and all the help needed. You won’t be alone!
Plus, it’ll be a fun and rewarding experience!
For more information, contact Volunteer Coordinator Sandy at (319) 360-3988 or email here
2021-2022 Volunteer of the Year
Lynn Check is this year’s Volunteer of the Year.
Lynn has selflessly given her time and talent throughout this past year working in the Concession Stand at the WCDC Derby Hall, selling Groom to Ride raffle tickets and snowmobile trail maps with her husband, Charlie.
Lynn always has time to assist the club in the concession stand and helps with events throughout the year. Lynn is a wonderful asset to our club and certainly deserves to be recognized as the club Volunteer of the Year.
Thank you, Lynn, for the countless hours given to the Sno-Eagles this year.
2021-2022 Groomer Operator of the Year
Mike Gildemeister is this year’s Groomer Operator of the Year.
This is Mike’s third year grooming for the Sno-Eagles. This season, Mike surpassed 130 hours of grooming mostly on the second shift.
Mike is always available at the last minute to step up and help groom trails whenever the Trail Boss called.
Many times, Mike would groom two shifts, grooming nearly 50% of Sno-Eagles trails in one night and sometimes back-to-back nights.
Prior to trails opening, Mike also helped the brushing crews clear trails of trees and brush.
Thank you, Mike, for your dedicated hours of service along with your safe and professional grooming practices
