kids ice fishing get together?

7 posts in this topic

I'm just kicking around some ideas for a kids ice fishing get together. Who would be interested? I'm thinking Lake Nebagamon, St. Croix lake or Gordon Flowage. Unless someone has good pannie lake somewhere that would keep the youngsters busy. Maybe grill if the weathers good. Could always raid Northlanders garage and give away some prizes to the kids smile.

If theres enough interest we will kick around some dates. You wouldn't have to bring a kid to attend. smile

Randy

I am down for this... Anything to help out the kids.. Also, we should try to see if you have kids, and they already fish, they should bring a friend or friends who have never fished before...

Let me know when you want to do this, and I could see about getting some small prizes and such for the kids.

Hey guys have you heard about this contest, I went the last two years, great contest to bring kids:

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Somerset Youth Athletic Association partners with

Ice Team for their 5th annual contest

Somerset, WI Dec. 12th 2008 – For the Somerset Youth Athletics Association and Ice Team it’s all about the kids. Five years ago this small community was faced with marked declines in not only the numbers of youth participating in outdoor activities, but extremely high equipment costs and continually escalating fees charged to participate in local team sports, out of this came the creation of the Somerset Youth Athletics Association (SYAA) and the idea to hold an ice fishing contest. The contest, now in it’s 5th year, gives young and old, beginners and seasoned anglers alike, the opportunity to enjoy a day in the great outdoors, competing for incredible prizes and 100% of the proceeds are donated to benefit youth sports. This all volunteer contest is really unique in that it has a special division just for youth 15 and under. Over the years the contest has grown to attract participants from as far away as Chicago, Illinois and International Falls, Minnesota.

For 2009 the contest has attracted the attention of Ice Team, undoubtedly the most recognized name in modern ice fishing. Ice Team has pioneered a program visiting schools across the country offering programs on the sport of ice fishing. Mike Smith, director of field promotions for Ice Team, was very impressed with the contest’s ability to draw new people into the sport, so impressed that Ice Team has become a major sponsor of the event. “We will be sending many of our Pros to the contest, their main responsibility will be to offer tips and strategies to improve your time spent on the ice and offer assistance to those who need it”. Along with Ice Team, the top national names in ice fishing equipment, Clam, Strikemaster, Ice Armor, Vexilar, MarCum, Wilcraft and more will be there.

Dave Prashak, contest spokesperson, is very proud of the fact that getting people to participate and enjoy the contest and ice fishing in general has become just as important as the funds that are raised for the community. “It can’t just be about raising money”, says Prashak. “We try to be good stewards of the environment ensuring that the lake is in better shape when we leave than when we arrived there”. All fish are caught, registered and released quickly to help insure their survival, this year with the help of the organization, Recycled Fish, we will be creating a special “recovery canal” where the released fish have a chance to recover before swimming back under the ice. After last years contest the SYAA went even further donating $1000.00 toward restocking efforts for the lake.

This year’s contest on Bass Lake in Somerset, WI scheduled for February 21st promises to be bigger and better than ever with well over $50,000 in prizes to be awarded. This years grand prize will be a new 4x4 Dodge extended cab pick-up with a MSRP of over $27,500. Mike Kurre of Kfan radio will again be our emcee and master of ceremonies. This is truly a family friendly event offering fun for all ages. Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned ice fishing veteran you’re guaranteed a good time on the ice and you’re participation benefits a worthy cause.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
