More than 500 Wisconsin snowmobilers welcomed last weekend’s colder than average temperatures during the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs (AWSC) 2017 Fall Workshop in Appleton. Annually, the AWSC’s Fall Workshop serves as the official “kick-off” for the 600-plus Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs who create and maintain more than 24,000 miles of public snowmobile trails in al 72 Wisconsin counties.
Keynote speaker Levi LaVallee (11-time X-Game Medalist and world record holder for longest snowmobile jump) energized the attendees with a powerful, reflective speech sharing how unexpected tragedy or failure in life can be overcome by teamwork, dedication and fearlessness.
The finale of the Fall Workshop is the Miss Snowflake Pageant, during which the 2017-2018 Miss Snowflake, Lynsey Burzinski, of the Orfordville Country Riders (Rock County) was crowned. As the new spokesperson for the AWSC, Miss Snowflake will spend her next year traveling around Wisconsin promoting snowmobiling at dozens of local events for the Association.
