An Ice Cream Thank you!

Greetings NTN Members, An Ice Cream Thank you! What an exceptional 4th of July Weekend!  The weekend was long, the weather was great and ice creams sales were up from last year. The funds raised with volunteer scooping skills has topped out at over $7,000.  The Exchange Club receives 20% for their organization and Jilberts Dairy has been paid for the goods, so all in all, the 2013 Food Fest was a great success. We had over 50 volunteers, without the people named below we could not have delivered to the long lines of people. Thank you to all and

Twin Peaks Cancelled

Dear Members, It is with great regret that I am announcing the cancellation of the NTN Twin Peaks run this coming Saturday.  As of yesterday, Memorial Day, we had eight pre-registrations, normally I would be in the 40+ range.  The goal of the race has always been to raise money for the NTN’s single-track mission.  With expenses usually running $500, it does not take a CPA to realize that we would have been doing the opposite. There were some minor delays in getting our flyers and online registration up and running this year but I think the main culprit is

Trail User Policy

Trail User Policy A goal of the NTN is to give every non-motorized user of our trails the best possible outdoor experience.  To this end we believe that different types of users should be separated wherever possible.  Accordingly, we as a Board have designated usage on various trails consistent with the terrain and member needs. At this time we are unable to completely separate snow bikes, skiers, snowshoes, dogs, and traditional skiers, so we need to share different portions of the trails.  Future trail segments to allow for separate users will be developed as money for construction and landowner permission
