News from Women on Snow
❄❄❄January 28-30, 2017 marked the 31st annual Women on Snow weekend. The theme this year was “Wild World of Sports”, and we did everything except snowmobile. Mother Nature was not kind to us this year. The 71 women who attended had the opportunity to get to know members of other riding groups while having fun playing games throughout the weekend.
❄❄❄WOS Tour 2017 was cancelled due to poor snow condtions. The 13 women who planned on riding were disappointed. Hopefully, we will be able to ride together in 2018.
❄❄❄Although we did not ride this year, Women on Snow participants donated almost $1300, which was distributed to area snowmobile clubs, Eagle River, Phelps, Conover, St. Germain, Sugar Camp, Three Lakes, and Sayner.
❄❄❄We were sad to learn that an original Women on Snow Hostess and Flying Femme, Carol Ayvazzadeh, passed away in January. She and her husband Homer, owned the Persian Paradise Supper Club in Eagle River, which is now Lumpy’s. We have many fond memories of Carol. She will be missed.
❄❄❄The beautiful Eagle Waters Resort will again be the host location for Women on Snow in 2018. This historical resort is located on Eagle Lake, part of the 28-lake chain; their Kee-Mi-Con Lodge at Eagle Waters has 24 Northwoods-style lodging units perfect for our event. Check out their web site at http://www.eaglewaters.com.
❄❄❄”The Funewgee Finder Reward” was a success, and it will be continued for next year. If a friend you refer attends the WOS 2018 Weekend for the first time, you will receive a $10 credit toward your registration for 2019. (BTW, a funewgee is a “fun new girl.”)
❄❄❄Women on Snow will not have a booth at the Snow Show in Milwaukee this year.
