Re: If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!

Does anyone know who first requested the downtown street event on Saturday be closed at 8:30PM? Was it the Fall Ride's organizer team that came up with the idea, a request from police dept, or some other group/reason? It would be interesting to understand the rational of this change? The MDA bike ra...

Re: If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!

Well stated Kerry! I'll just add how about the charities that sell food&drink. There's more than one group that have told me this is their biggest event of the year from a fund-raising perspective.

Re: If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!

I agree with the majority above. This event is held once a year and has been a economic boon for the area. Ending the downtown street activities early on Sat evening is a big mistake, especially for the tourists (yep those riders are money-spending tourists) that can't arrive until Saturday morning ...

Re: Allan Bell

I had the opportunity to meet him in 1994 when he attended my father's funeral. He was one of my father's best friends in their youth. Since he arrived early, our family got to sit with him for awhile and we truly enjoyed our time with him. I too would hope his insight on Northwoods nature could be ...

Re: Tomahawk Fall Ride - No Harley Demos, etc?

Please note that 2010 bike demos, with the ability to purchase one onsite, will be at Bubba's Big Party at Nokomis Community Park this year! Thanks for the update! I agree with djp, sounds like a dealer is going to offer demo bikes instead of the factory so I doubt we will see many CVO models, etc.

Tomahawk Fall Ride - No Harley Demos, etc?

Well, looks like the H-D's senior management is cutting back at the Fall Ride this year. Per all schedules I've seen it looks like the Harley Davidson is not participating at Sara Park...at all. No demo rides, no factory-sponsored HOG Rally, and no Traveling Museum. Sara Park is going to be a ghost ...

What's the status of the hospital TIF?

Just looking for an update on the TIF outcome as of the meeting on March 13th, 2008. Can anyone give an update on the outcome of that meeting? I'm out of Tomahawk currently and have searched the internet for an update...none to be found as of March 17th. Even search the local TV channel websites, bu...

Kudos to Nokomis 1st Responders & others!

During the early evening hours of May 27th, my 81 year-young mother was planning some flowers on a small hill near Lake Nokomis Road. This was just after we had a lengthy discussion that she should not go near the hill and associated boulder garden(in the insurance industry it referred to as an &quo...
