Outdoors Weekly Bankruptcy?

11 posts in this topic

Apologize if this has been talked about already but is there any truth that the owners of Outdoors Weekly have filed BK? I have been told they have. My father just sent a $35 check in for subsciption that was cashed and he has not recieved a issue in weeks.

Outfit like that disappears without the need to file.

Filing Chapter 11 doesn't really mean much... The Minneapolis Star and Tribune filed earlier this year and I believe is still in Chapter 11. I bet most of us on here still send in our checks to the Trib and still receive the daily paper.

Come to think of it, it's been at least 2 weeks now since I've received one. Anyone know anything?

I finally sent an e-mail to them to learn why I haven't been getting my copies in the mail. Here is their response:

The former owners of Outdoors Weekly filed for bankruptcy the end of May, however, as of June 5, 2009, the assets of Outdoors Weekly have been purchased by Lake Country Marketing Corp. The weekly printed paper has been suspended while we undergo restructuring and focus on a bigger monthly issue beginning towards the end of August.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
