2009 Jim Dorrance Darkhouse Invitational

27 December 2009

Detroit Lakes MN

(Actual Lake To Be Announced)

I was talking to Jim Dorrance at the gathering in Perham this year.

Jim is an old timer who enjoys carving decoys but since he lives in a home he never gets to go out darkhouse spearing.


That got me to thinking how many other old timers are out there that don't get to go darkhouse spearing any more.

I thought it is time the younger generation steps up to the plate and gives these guys a day on the lake.

I asked Jim if he would be interested in that and his eyes lit up and he told me heck ya!!

So, I am just starting to plan this out, but if there is anyone on here that would like to help out just let me know.

Jim lives in the Detroit Lakes area so we would find a lake around there that would work for us.

Also are there other old timers in that area or that could get to that area that would like to come out? If you know of some one let me know.

I am thinking we will just have a good day on the lake where the old timers are catered to, a nice lunch, and of course many many stories from the old timers. It should be fun.

Let me know if any of you guys would like to chip in and help out in anyway even if it is just suggesting a lake.

    • You can't even follow a conversation in your own head. According to has always been a zero sum game. Right now if the polls are correct, it is not either Trump or Hillary.....a vote for Trump or Johnson are completely the same.....neither are going to win. So once again .....please choose......either are the polls wrong, or are you going to waste your vote? It is a simple question asked for the second time.
    • Keep that knee on the ground.  I have never once said anything about the poles whether Trump was up or down.  So it's either Trump or Hillary.  Have to choose one.....sorry you're mad bro.
    • Yep, we are now at the point that Del and D2E have to say either the poles are wrong, or not vote for Trump. Because according to their own logic.....if the poles are would be a wasted vote. So what will it be? Have to choose one........
    • Heavens no.  Del doesn't believe in wasting his vote.
    • Not to worry LRG.  You can pick on me all you want.  I guess I'm in the same thought pattern as Getanet,  a house is not a priority now.  I know quality cost $$$.  One thing that I think is crazy is the amount of new houses that are available for sale.  At what point does the market saturate?  How many of these houses financed for 120 months will be repoed or sold at a loss?  A fishouse in every driveway?  Seems like it.   I wonder how much longer some of these builders will be around?
    • That's my description of our O line... I have faith in our coaching system that they will revamp their scheme...  This was like a fall apart game, it was bound to happen. Come on guys, get it together!!!! We will demolish the bears. 
    • Looking at getting the pro xt cabin. ..   Do the seats stay in place or do you have to remove them and put in the sled to get down to the 20.5" packed measurement?    How well do the square tubes work when cold? 
    • That's for sure.  But you sure are ready to point out any spelling mistake made by anyone else.   #hypocritesandfrauds
