Antigo Area Weekend Activities
space
It promises to be an outstanding weekend for activities across the northwoods.

Snow freshened—and opened—trails across the northwoods and there are rides and junkets to enjoy all that winter has to offer.

The days ahead will also bring blues music to Quinn’s, the Winter Ball for high school students, Hockey Days at the fairgrounds and much more.

A look ahead, taken from the Antigo Daily Journal’s advertising columns, follows:

TRAILS OPEN

All snowmobile trails in Langlade County will be open effective 7 a.m. Saturday morning.

Trails in the northern and eastern parts of the county opened a week ago, so the latest decision mainly affects the trails in the southern and western areas, which benefited from a substantial snowfall Monday night.

Zone A snowmobile trails will be open to ATVs on Sunday. Zone B snowmobile trails will be open to ATVs beginning on Tuesday, Feb. 6. ATVs are not allowed on snowmobile trails when the temperature is above 28 degrees. UTVs are not allowed on the Langlade County snowmobile trail system.

Consult the 2017-2018 snowmobile map as the sections have changed. A link to the map is located at www.langladecounty.org.

On Saturday, hours after all the trails have opened, the Langlade County Snowmobile Council will hold its 34th annual Ride In at the Lily Sno Birds Clubhouse beginning at 11 a.m.

The Ride In is a family occasion where many snowmobilers bring their families and ride the trails to the clubhouse and others coming by vehicle.

Volunteers from the Lily Sno Birds Snowmobile Club will serve food and refreshments. The council will have various raffles and other activities.

SKI JUNKET

Michelle’s Lodge will be on display and new ski and snowshoe equipment available for demo when the Elcho Cross-Country Ski Club holds its annual ski junket on Saturday at the Moccasin Trail, located west of Elcho off Moccasin Lake Road.

Activities will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be a bonfire, along with free hot dogs, hot chocolate, chili and cookies. A representative from Mel’s Trading Post of Rhinelander will be bringing the latest in cross country ski and snowshoe gear for people to try.

The event is open to the public and is free of charge, although the club always welcomes donations. The forecast is promising, suggesting that Saturday will offer a mix of clouds and sun with highs about 30 degrees.

HOCKEY DAYS

The Antigo Area Youth Hockey Association will host the annual Hockey Days celebration today through Sunday on the indoor ice at the multi-purpose building at the fairgrounds.

It promises to be a full weekend of hockey fun, including the games, concessions camaraderie and much more.

The event kicks off at 7 p.m. tonight when the young initiation squad—the littlest of first-time skaters—will take on the big kids from the high school at 7 p.m.

Things get more serious after that. The schedule for the weekend follows:

Saturday: 10:00 a.m. Mites vs. Medford; 11:15 a.m. Bantams vs. DePere; 1 p.m. Varsity vs. Fond du Lac St. Mary’s Springs; 3 p.m. JV vs. Fond du Lac St. Mary’s Springs; 5 p.m. Northern Edge vs. Cedarburg; 7 p.m. Player Open Skate.

Sunday: 9 a.m. Squirts vs. D.C. Everest; 10:30 a.m. Pee Wees vs. D.C. Everest; Noon Squirts vs. D.C. Everest; 1:30 p.m. Bantams vs. Mosinee/Stevens Point; 3 p.m. Pee Wees vs. D.C. Everest; 4:30 p.m. Bantams vs. Mosinee/Stevens Point.
