      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

in shakopee, as you head across the river to 212, there is a outdoor range to your left as you cross the river. I beleive you have to go through the boat landing and under the bridge in your vehicle to access that area....looks like they have 8 0r 9 stations

The "Ponds Park" in PL had a small archery range last year by the baseball diamonds, and I do mean small, if I remember correctly it was like 3 stations. Park by the baseball diamonds and it was like a 500 foot walk.

There is a small range on France avenue as you are coming into Bloomington as well. Not quite to the Normandal Campus. It will be on your right side as you are coming up France Ave towards Bloomington.

Troy if you bring it to work with you there is a cool little outdoor range there in EP. It is open air but has walls and 10 to I think 40yds. I have never ran into anyone there either always had the place to myself.

if its the one in starring park or something like that, it is a nice one. however, for me it is a 20 minute drive, at least, and i've gone there a few times to find it was closed for the evening for kids archery classes. bummer for me, but great for them!

The one in Shakopee sounds a lot nicer, but there is also a small outdoor FREE range in chaska in the park on the opposite side of the pond fron the Fireman's park.

There is a place to shoot in Savage off of Glendale. I think the park is called Hidden Valley. It's not nearly as nice as the EP range but it's a place to shoot. They have a couple hay bails and I think you have enough room to shoot up to 40. There's also a range behind the dodge dealership off of 35W and Cliff road. I think that one has 5 stations and you can shoot up to 60 I believe.

I now this would be a bit of a drive for you. But one of the best bow shooting facilities I've ever been a part of. Coon Rapids Archery club. Check out there web page see for your self. If you ever golfed before then you will love there walk around ranges. Just like a game of gulf. Take some friends make a day of it. Pick-nick table for lunch and all the shooting you can do. Only $3.00 for the day. You will have your choice of four different areas to shoot at. A lot of great people shoot there.

Have some fun.

    • $37 per year..... Or just find someone to buy you a 3-yr license for $42. Seem kinda goofy consider that stamps are the same price for both in-state and out-of-state  
    • Thanks for the info, I know most of us wheelhouse owners never got a license
    • Not sure why this posted three times and I can't delete any of them...
    • interesting read...
    •   A damper could be placed inline with the supply air duct to either mix outdoor air or recirculated return air, this is air going into the panel.  Modulate that damper with an actuator that is controlled by a simple temp sensor and modulating control, i.e. 0-10v signal.  
    • Had the soup last night and it was really good. The beans weren't too bad - I wouldn't say any mushier than they probably where right out of the can. Pretty similar to the texture of Bush's Baked Beans, so mushy, but I was worried they might be the consistency of refried beans after cooking on low call day in the crockpot. Going to try adding a little liquid smoke next time. That sounds like an interesting twist.
    • Anyone going up on the 8th? Rengel wants another shot at the prestigious Nord Lord title, and me too! And quickfishnoob. Pretty sure there's ice this time.
