ROME SNO-bandits club trip – February 1st – 4th
Hello fellow Bandits!!!
It is that time of year again to plan our annual Sno-Bandit club trip. After a lot of research and opinions, the club has decided on the Hayward, WI area. Here are the details for the trip;
Dates: February 1st-4th Thursday-Sunday
Location: LCO Casino and Lodge in Hayward, WI 715-634-8574
There are a total of 26 rooms reserved for the Sno Bandits. I know some people like to go up a day early, so the rooms are blocked 1/31/18-2/4/18 (Wednesday-Sunday). I tried to get 30, but only 26 rooms were available. They range in price of $60-$90 a night depending on the type of room you reserve. If you have not booked your room by 12/31/17, the remaining rooms will be released from our block, so book early. There is a 24 hour cancellation policy. When reserving your room, make sure you say you are a Sno-Bandit to get the group discount.
Please let me know when you reserve your room and what nights you are staying so I can keep a tally on who is going and the room count.
You can text me at 815-289-0965
The casino is on the snowmobile trail, there is plenty of parking at the facility. Gas is available at the facility itself and right across the street. Casino/lodge includes pool, hot tub, restaurant, lounge area, live band Friday and Saturday night and plenty of gambling. We will have a social in the Bar/Lounge on Saturday night with door prizes and trophies.
We will most likely do the same as last year with the door prizes and a couple “special” trophies. If anyone has any suggestions, or wants to nominate someone for a trophy, please let me know. There are a couple of “traveling” trophies out there, so make sure you bring them on the trip to pass on to the next lucky person.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Start the snow DaNcE!!!!!

Sno-Bandit Trail Brushing and Chili Dump- November 11th
First: We will all meet in the morning to go out to brush and sign our trails. We normally have 50+ members who come out to help so nobody gets over worked. We will meet at the GROOMER SHED at 302 13th Ave off of Alpine at 8:00am. Bring gloves and any trimming equipment you might have. (Lobber shears, chain saw, pole saw..etc) If you have any questions on this contact our Trail Boss Larry @414-587-6833. We have Section Leaders for the various portions of our trail system. We will split up into groups to go out and brush and sign each section. Because of the awesome number of volunteers we get, this task can get completed in 3-4 hours. If you have any equipment that might help us out with the trail brushing and would like to volunteer your services please contact Larry.
Second: As we complete the work we all meet at Woodland Church (280 14th ave) just south of Alpine Drive. There a group of volunteers have set up the hall for our Chili Dump festivities. For those of you that have never been to a Chili Dump, We have everyone bring a half gallon or so of chili and mixed it all together in a Nesco. It turns out awesome!! Members also bring so many other goodies to go along with the chili. YUM!!! The club will provide soda, beer, and wine.
Third: We will also have our November meeting during this time. We will have raffles and some door prizes as well.
So……How can YOU get involved?
1. Volunteer and help with Trail Brushing.
2. Volunteer and help with the Chili Dump at the Town Hall.
3. Bring some chili that morning to either the Groomer Shed or Woodland Church.
4. Bring a snack, bread, dessert or your favorite anything to the chili dump.
This event has turned into a Sno-Bandit tradition to kick off the snowmobiling season. Mark your calendar. Come on out and join in all of the fun….and a little work. Great way to meet a bunch of your fellow Sno-Bandits!!! If you have any questions about the event call us at 715-325-6711 or email us at RomeSnoBandits@gmail.com
