Highway Cleanup

We will have our first highway cleanup of the summer on Sunday, June 3rd. We will meet at 8:00am at the West Laramie McDonald’s parking lot. We will drive up from there to the Green Rock parking lot and clean up our 2 mile section of the highway. Safety vests and garbage bags will be provided. The more people we have, the quicker the cleanup will go!

If you have any questions, please let us know! We hope to see you all there!

May Update

May Meeting: Our May meeting will be next Thursday, May 17th at the Fire Station #3 in West Laramie, 2374 W Jefferson St starting at 6:30pm. At this meeting we our main focus is to see what interest there would be in starting a UTV/ATV/Motorcycle group. With more and more roads and areas being closed to motorized users, we want to create a organized group to help fight this. The main goal will be access, not dues or pot lucks! Everyone is welcome!

 
Officer Elections: We are still looking for someone to take over the Secretary/Treasurer position. We will have elections at our September meeting. If you or anyone you know is interested in helping out, please let us know.

Highway Clean Up: With WYDOT working to get HWY 130 over the Snowy Range open, we need to get up to Green Rock parking lot for a highway clean up on our adopted highway section. We are looking at Saturday June 2nd or Sunday June 3rd for our first clean up day. We will send out the exact date and time when it gets closer.

Hut Maintenance: This summer we plan to replace the floors in both safety shelters and do a lot of other much needed maintenance on them. We are hoping to be able to haul the shelters to town to do this, but we are waiting on the ok to do so. Once we know where we will be working on them, we will set a date and let everyone know.

Youth Camping: Our Youth Club will be hosting a “Leave No Trace” camping and clean up trip in the Snowy Range August 4th and 5th. Any youth or adults are welcome to attend. For more information, please contact Cameron Olsen at  307-399-9994.

Wood Cutting: We want to get all of the wood cut for the shelters before the snow starts to fly this year. The weekend of September 15th and 16th we plan on cutting wood for both shelters. We hope to turn this into a overnight camping and 4-wheeler trip also.

As always, if you have any questions or would like to sign up for any of the summer events, just shoot us a email.

We hope to have a great turn out at the meeting next Thursday. Invite your friends and family. Summer motorized users need to have a voice!

January and February Meeting

Our January meeting will be Thursday, January 18th at Laramie Fire Station #3, 2374 W Jefferson St. Dinner will start at 6:00pm, with the meeting starting at 6:30pm.

In light of recent events on the Snowy Range, we thought it would be a good idea to invite the Albany County Sheriff’s Search & Rescue to come visit with us about how we can best help when an event occurs and to inform folks on how to get involved with SAR. This will be our normal club meeting but is open to anyone and everyone–the more we can educate everyone, the better prepared our community to deal with an emergency. Please join us on Feb. 15 at Laramie Fire Station #3 at 2374 W Jefferson St at 6:00 pm.

If you have any questions please let us know. Hope to see you all there!

This year we will have a change of location. We will now be meeting at Laramie Fire Station #3 in West Laramie. The change of location allows us more options and the ability to bring food and non-alcoholic drinks to our meetings.

We hope to see you all there on Thursday, October 26th at 2374 W Jefferson Street at 7:00 pm.

Nelson Wood Cutting

We had a great turn out for the Quealy wood cutting and highway cleanup. We had 20 people show up to brave the fog, rain, and snow. We would like to say a special thank you to the 6 members of the Colorado Blizzards Snowmobile Club who traveled all the way up from Colorado to help us.

The Nelson wood cutting will be on Saturday, October 14th. We will be meeting at the West Laramie McDonalds at 9:00 am and heading up the mountain shortly thereafter. Please bring chainsaws, axes, and splitting mauls if you have them. The club will provide a hot lunch and water.

If you have any questions, please contact us. We hope to have another great turn out!

Thank you,
