December 26, 2002 to January 1, 2003                 Winter Rendezvous Sledding Event                     Brule River Classics Resort, Brule, WI

     You do not need to be a member to attend this event. Everyone is welcome, even new people who do not know anyone.  Bring your dogs or don't bring your dogs, but the object of the event is to have FUN! After all the stress of the Holiday's we deserve a break to hang out with other dog fanciers and have a relaxing time.     

BRULE RIVER CLASSICS RESORT-- Brule, WI (about 45 minutes from Bayfield on lake Superior) TSAMC has one huge cabin (cedar) rented that sleeps 12 people with a big social area.  The resort does not allow dogs or smokers in the big cabin so dogs must stay in vehicles and trailers.  The cabins are moderns with electric and water/bath, etc. and a full kitchen. First come first served for the beds, but we are more than willing to pack people in on the floors so bring bedding.  

The trail info on Brule is as follows from the DNR: They have miles of trails that they mow every few years for hunters that are not open to snowmobiles.  They thought it would be OK for us to use a snowmobile on these hunter trails for a one time thing to pack the snow down for dog sledding. We can also use these trails for snowshoeing and skijoring and hiking. There are plenty of designated snowmobile trails nearby.

We hope you can make it and plan on ringing in the New Year with all your dog friends and have a howling good time. If you have any other questions, please call Kelly Pruka at 763-689-9875 or Rhonda Schrader at 715-381-1460. The Brule River Classics Resort's number is 715-372-8153.  The reservations are under the Pruka name.
