Last updated 8-9-22

NEW FOR 2022
Look for a shorter ride and shorter evening program. We hope to find more ride leaders offering smaller groups with more stops.

THE CAUSE

The Kettle Moraine ATV Association, The Lakeshore ATV/UTV club, and Wisconsin ATV/UTV Association will again host the 15th Annual ATV/UTV Charity Ride on October 29th at The Washington County Fair Park in West Bend. Again, this year we will be raising money for "Make-A-Wish Wisconsin."  Last year, our first year in West Bend we had 180 riders and raised an incredible $22,000. Thank you to everyone who participated, sponsored, donated and/or contributed in any way.  You will be able to ride your ATV/UTV directly from the fair park to the road routes of the Kettle Moraine State Forest.

PLEDGES

Start by printing a Pledge Form from the tab on the left and round up all the donations you can from family, friends, coworkers, school or church goers, or even other club members. If people donate only $5 at a time, that amount will add up quickly.  These pledges will count towards your entry registration. Prizes are given for the top 3 pledge earners. Don't worry however, if you have a hard time asking for money, you can simply pay the $25 (individual) or $50 (Immediate family) at registration. 

PARKING

There is plenty of parking at the Washington County Fair Park and Convention Center.  We are currently working with the City of West Bend on temporary road routes to get from the Fair Park to the route system.

THURSDAY

Let the fun begin. Meet at 9:00am at the Fair park and lets ride the day away. After the ride, we will head to a restrauant in West Bend to eat the night away. To cap off the day, we will have an ice cream social compliments of the club.

FRIDAY

Couldn't make it Thursday, then Friday may be the day for you. Meet at the Fair park at 9:00am ready to see the sights of the Kettle Moraine. We will ride until about 4:00pm and then head to a local grill afterwords for a fish fry or other cullinary delights. You get 3 days or riding for one charitable donation price.

SATURDAY MORNING REGISTRATION

Saturday registration will be 7:30-9:00am at the Washington County Fair Park and Convention Center located at 3000 Hwy PV in West Bend. (Hwy's 45 and PV).  You will be given a wrist band for each person in your party. This will be your Saturday dinner ticket, raffle ticket number, and door prize ticket so do not loose it. Dinner is 1 time through and then until it's gone. You will have a chance to buy a bulb from the big star for a chance to win a gift to be determined as we get closer. 

THE RIDE

At 8:45am we'll have a riders meeting followed by a group photo. From there individual groups will head out to ride on there own. For those who need someone to ride with, are unfamiliar with the routes, or simply don't want to fight with a map or ride command, we will have guided groups, leaving right after the picture so please be unloaded, gassed up, and ready to go by 9:00am. Because of the large size of the groups, we have arranged a quick grap and go lunch to get us in and out as quick as possible. Try to be back around 4:00 pm so there is plenty of time to load up by 5:00pm for the evening festivities. For those who want the most ride, 1 group will head to Sunset on the Water, there will be 2 shorter rides to Knowles and Random Lake, and even a shorter ride to Twisted Pair in Beechwood. We still need to make arrangements with these places so this may change. Look for the ride leaders with a sign to their destination lined up in the parking lot. Hop in line where you want to go but even out the lines as much as possible to keep the sizes about the same.

SATURDAY EVENING FESTIVITIES

DINNER Sponsored by_______________________

Dinner will be from 5:00 to 6:00pm.  Please do not miss this window.  Food is included with your admission AND there is a cash bar for refreshment. 


NOT ON AN ATV, NO PROBLEM

For those who do not partake in the  ride itself, but just want to hang out, check out the raffles, maybe bid on a silent auction item or two, and just share in the experience, we would love to have you. Everyone's welcome, you just won't get to go through the food line. Come around 6 pm and enjoy the fun!

RAFFLES 

We will have 2 raffle tables full of items that we will sell tickets for throughout the night. We raffle off 1 table at a time. We will start selling tickets at 5:00pm for the 6:00pm raffle table. Then we will sell tickets at 6:00pm for the 7:00pm table. Raffle tickets sell 3 for $5.00, 15 for $10.00, or 40 for $20. There will be some incredible baskets on the tables that you'll have multiple chances to win. Since there will be alcohol involved, only 21 and older can claim the raffle prizes. We do not take credit cards for raffle tickets, cash and checks only. Rather than having to stare at 40 numbers when one is called and figuring out if you have a winner, all you will need to do is look at your wristband and see if that matches. When you purchase raffle tickets, either us or yourselves will write your wristband number on every ticket and then that number will be called. You won't have any tickets to look at, just look at your wristband number.


GAMES

Kids and adults alike can take a walk down nostalgia lane with the always skilled luck games of Plinko and Toilet Paper toss. Everyone who plays will get a little tricket, win or not. $2.00 a game or 2 for $3.00


THE STAR

There will be an illuminated star that you can purchase a $5.00 bulb for and have a chance to win a hand made quilt by one of our own members. When all the bulbs are replaced from white to blue, we will pick a number, if your bulb number matches, you go home a little warmer then you came.


SILENT AUCTION

We will again have many items to bid on and you can pick up some very nice treasures. There will be stuff for all interests and desires. NEATLY put your name on the sheet and the amount you want to pay and keep an eye on it because someone else may up the ante'. The silent auction closes at 7:45pm and we will award the items shortly after 8:00pm. We will organize the lists alphabetically so if you  are the winner,  go to either the A-H, the I-Q, or the R-Z table. Please print neatly so we can easily read the names.
We do not take credit cards for silent auction items, cash and checks only.That's it for now. Thank You and Have Fun. 

CHECK PRESENTATION

After all of the activities conclude, stick around and see how much was raised and will be donated to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin.  A group photo will be taken.
