We stayed there a few years ago on boats. They had showers/bathrooms for boaters and a nice setup. Shuttle bus runs to the casino also. I really didnt look at the campground much, but remember the bathrooms being above-average for a typical campground. I'm pretty sure the campsites are kinda out in the open but have everything you need.

My buddy and his dad are going. Last year at state in Morton I made the final table (got 10th) and my buddy going along won it. Not bad outta 460+ people!!

For winning that tourny he got a buy in to a $1500 no limit event at the WSOP which he played in last month. Didn't do all that great, but there was over 6500 people in that one.

I see youre from Red Wing, so I take it you have either camped there or at least been there- is it on grass pads or is it tar, like you said?

It might be 'parking lot' camping, but since you are not really there for the camping you will be fine. If I remember right it is gravel anyway.

I had 50 amp electric plus sewer and water. They will let you use an adapter for the electric if you don't have the right plug.

BTW, I went there for a wedding reception and had the best (wedding) food ever.

Good luck in the tourney!

Yeah basically we are going to sleep. We are going to hang out a little at night by the campfire and drink a few barley pops. But for the most part we are going to be in the casino playing in tournaments all weekend. I figure if 4 of us go, and spend $40 total, we we will be saving around $500. Casino rooms aren't cheap

yep if all you are going to sleep that will work better than paying 150-200 bucks a night

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
