As most of you may or may not know that KOHL’S Dept store has a program called the KOHL’S CARES, ASSOCIATES IN ACTION. This program takes Kohl’s employee’s and they volunteer their time to help out environmentally friendly community based organizations. They got wind of our group and have volunteered a ton of time to our events, brat frys and they helped us clean up a county park. Along with the volunteer time, we submitted several grant applications to KOHL’S. The grant apps got approved and that set our organization to get the tools that we need to start trail building in our community. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The New Om and WORBA would like to give a HUGE thanks to Melanie T and the Kohl’s peeps in Manitowoc for volunteering their time. This is the plaque that we are giving to Kohl’s In Manty and to Kohl’s Corp.

This is our 2nd year doing a MTB ride & Bar B-Q in Sheboygan. We had a crap ton of fun and a good turn out last year but wanted to make this year a lil different. We had this event more for the entire family rather than just the hard core MTB'r.
We even set up a section of trail just for the KIDZ. This section started in the picnic area and looped around back. We placed signs where some of the trail would split so the kids would not get lost. This was moderate section of trail that is perfect for kids or beginner MTBers.
Mother and Daughter MTB'n. Yes, I was in tree when I took this Picture.

I would like to thank the HOLCOMB Family and the FAT KATZ for helping out in promoting this event along with our Manty Bike shops (HEAVY PEDAL BICYCLE LLC. & BROKEN SPOKE BIKE STUDIO) &of course all the familys that came out.
Hopefully we can have this event next year in Manty Co.
Tom Petri ( Wisconsin Congreesman from district 6 ) stopped by my place of employment the other day. The Prez of the Company that I work for asked if I would like to take a few pictures of Tom's tour. And... I got the chance to talk a little bit to Tom about our group and advocate MTB'n to him. We only talked for a short time. But... I did plant the seed in his head for more community trials in Manty Co.
THE NEW OM is very excited about the opertunity to scout and design a potential trail at MC. 2011 is looking great for our group. Here is a map of Walla Hi CNTY Park. This is another area that the CNTY is letting us look at. This is twice the sz of MC.The park does have trails already. This trail will be up for disscusion at future NEW OM meetings in the months to come.
