      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

I think after watching that, we may have the best power play in the NHL this year, or close to it. that number one line looks potent.

Great day of hockey!!! Those games up in GR looked COOOOOLLLLLDDDD!!!! Especially the Rapids/Benelds game. Gophers and Sioux was excellent and the Wild looked to be very very good. If they continue to play at this level, they will be playoff bound for sure. They are very very deep!

So I might be biased, but I think I had as good a hockey day in MN as anyone in the state.

Started out the day working as a PA announcer, keeping stats and running the clock (sometimes all 3 at once, which was a challenge) at the Highland Central (St. Paul) Hockey Association's Heartbreaker Classic 10u and 12u girls tournament, while keeping tabs on the Gopher Women's team on Twitter and getting text message updates from my wife on my daughter's outdoor JV game at North Dale Rec Center. Between games I'd catch bits and pieces of the HS boys games from Grand Rapids on the TV in the rink office.

Left Highland for a quick trip home to watch the 1st period of the Gopher/Sioux game while I piled on more clothes and got my first year Mite son ready for his outdoor game at Phalen park. Swung up to North Dale to catch the first period of my daughter's Varsity HS game against Minnehaha Academy, then off to Phalen for my son's game and more text updates on my daughter's game from the wife (0-0 tie then a shoot out just for the fun of it) and Twitter to keep tabs on the Gophs. 11 degrees when they dropped the puck on my son's game, 4 degrees at the final whistle. (I don't even want to know what the wind chill was...)

Got home and watched the Wild game on DVR until I got caught up to the live broadcast by fast forwarding through commercials and intermissions, then fell asleep on the couch watching the tape delay broadcast of Hibbing vs Grand Rapids/Greenway girls game.

All told, I saw all or parts of 10 games live, on 5 different sheets of ice, plus 5 games on TV - everything from Mite Cs to 10u, 12u and High School girls and boys, plus the WCHA and NHL.

30 different teams in action of some kind, from very beginning skaters to the best hockey players in the world.

Hockey Day in Minnesota freaking rocks.
