CORBA comes to Barron County

Starting this May ~ A New Mountain Bike/Running Trail system will begin construction in the Rice Lake Area. CORBA (Chippewa Off Road Bike Assoc.) http://chippewaoffroad.org/ will begin construction along with Local Riders & Runners to create Barron Counties First Single Track trail system. A number of Local folks have been working on this over the past few years and in 2014 Great conversations began with CORBA. After just over a year of efforts this is now coming to fruition. This new trail system will be located on the Pipestone Quarry Property east of Rice Lake. The initial layout calls for 3 loops totaling approx. 10 miles of singletrack. Stay tuned for more info coming soon.

Lots of Irons in the Fire ~ Out There

Well as many of you know the Snow does not have time to melt under our feet… We try to stay Out There and much as possible and sometimes are accused of having a Few to many “Irons in the Fire” . Recently I received a message from someone asking about something they “Heard” we were doing from a Volunteering stand point. I let them know about a project we had in the works and they said ” You need to let folks know what’s all going on Out There” . Well here you go!  Here are a few of those “Irons” in the fire….

Trip back in Time….

A little trip back~ Early 1900’s image of our store. Old School Rice Lake this is for you. After having a business that has occupied the same location for 33years we have lots of folks who stop in to ask “Old School” questions about businesses in Rice Lake and more. Our Great Victorian was built originally in 1904. It had many lives until 1982 when my father Burnell Hanson purchased the building and made it into Burnells Decor. Burnell’s is now entering it’s 39th year of business and 33rd year at this location. Out There Nordic is no apart of that legacy entering it’s 6th year here.
