We will be having our Moss Lake Trail cleanup this Saturday, April 23rd. Come out and meet us at the trailhead at 9:00 a.m. to help clean some trail! Bring a bike, ATV, truck, or just yourself and lend a hand with the many aspects of keeping our trails in ride-able condition. After the work is done, the UP Sandstormers invite you to have dinner on the house at the Swallow Inn located in Rapid River. Hope to see everyone there!
Due to snow, the Moss Lake Trail Cleanup that was tentatively planned for this weekend has been cancelled. Stay tuned for more info!
Time to get the bikes ready (if you haven’t already) and join us for a fun ride at the Porterfield Lake Motorcycle Trail, Saturday, April 2nd. We will meet in the parking lot around 10am. Remember to purchase your ORV sticker. Hope to see you there!
This year’s Loose Moose has changed from Sunday, June 12th, to Saturday, June 11th. This is due to an overwhelming interest to run the enduro on Saturday.

The UP Sandstormers invite you to join us Saturday, February 13th, for some ice fishing! The DNR are offering free fishing for the weekend so no fishing license is needed.

Lunch will be provided. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining us. Direct questions to Nick Zambon at (906)236-3241. Come out and have some fun!
