Roger and Kathy Steinbach at the 2009 WATVA Convention where they received Trail Patroller of the year awards

Roger Steinbach passed away a while ago and is sorely missed by the ATV community. Roger, his wife Kathy and his two sons (still active in Red Arrow and other clubs) were “everywhere” in the ATV sport. They were the top WATVA Trail Patrollers several times and always attended the WATVA meetings and conventions. They also helped at nearly every Red Arrow event since we took on the ATV riders about 5 years ago. On Saturday May 5th at 10AM there was a Memorial Ride starting at the Lakewood Trailhead and continuing to Animal’s Bear Trail at Hwy T & 64. A commemorative trail marker was placed followed by lunch sponsored by the Hidden Bear Trail ATV Club. There were over 30 ATVs and UTVs in the ride with over 40 participants. Many others arrived by car for the presentation ceremony. Randy Harden, Terry Copein and Adam Harden of the WATVA attended and gave comments about Roger’s devotion to the ATV sport and more importantly to his wife Kathy and their boys.

June 6th 2009 All the speakers were invited to help with the actual ribbon cutting for the new Nicolet State Recreational trail. Sue Rapp, Townsend Chairperson did the honors by cutting the ribbon and declaring the trail open. This "Multi-Modal" trail is open to ATV's, bicycles and foot traffic in the summer and Snowmobiles in the winter. It stretches over 45 miles from south of Gillett to Laona. Next year a five mile stretch north of Laona will open making it possible to ride or bike all the way to the UP.

Our Ultimate Groomer is the biggest and "baddest" piece of trail grooming equipment in Oconto County. Powered by a 300HP John Deere diesel it easily handles the hilly terrain west and south of Townsend. Give the operators a big "thumbs up" for the time they spend on the trail...usually over 500 hours per year.
