With pouring rain and melting snow just the week before, the Rip, Zip and Sip felt like it was just a bit in jeopardy! But luck and hard work was on our side with gorgeous weather and fantastic trail conditions! Kudos to our volunteers who've been grooming all winter with love and care and building up those jumps and berms for an epic ride.
Thank you to Bare Bones Brewery for sponsoring the event and providing some great, great beer! A thank you also to friends and local businesses who donated items for the bucket raffle including The Hiker Box, Imaginuity, Northern Waters Distillery, Tim McMahon Appraisals., Bruce D. (Old Guys Still Ride, Inc.), Trapp Electric, Trig's, Etco Electric, Chequamegon Adventure Company & Kuat, and more! Thank you for so many who donated all sorts of awesomeness including our new Food Guru Jason S for awesome street tacos, Laurie M for amazing scones, Joe H for banana bread, Frank Coffen Carpentry for the podium, Minocqua Tire and Auto for fuel, the list goes on! Thank you to the Town of Minocqua for giving us the space to build these great trails and also for sanding the parking lot for us. Much appreciated. And thanks to the Chamber of Commerce for their ongoing support.
