      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 .

Here's the results. Congrats to all!

The top male and female student archers who participated March 28 in the

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) National Archery In

The Schools Program (NASP) state tournament each received their choice

of a lifetime hunting or fishing license.

Chantelle Skarda of South Campus High School in White Bear Lake and

Austin Bosse of Jackson Middle School finished first in the individual

male and female competitions. In addition to the lifetime licenses,

Skarda and Bosse also received a Genesis bow and a Morrell target.

“Nearly 700 students from throughout the state participated in the

tournament,” said Kraig Kiger, DNR shooting sports program

administrator. “NASP keeps involving more schools, more students, and

more families in the safe and fun lifetime activity of archery.”

Five years ago, 56 student archers shot in the state tournament,

shooting high scores just above 200. This year, 689 students from 48

schools participated with high scores ranging from 275 to 290. Archers

must shoot 30 arrows into the target bullseye to achieve a perfect score

of 300.

Statewide, 96,656 students from 285 schools participate in NASP. The

DNR’s Archery in the Schools grant program provides $1,500 in funding

to qualifying schools to defray the cost of equipment and

program-related training.

Tournament results include:

Weston Bovitz of Champlin Park High School was the top high school male

finisher. Holly Petry of White Bear Lake was the top female in the

middle school age group. Top elementary age group finishers were Josie

Zimmerman and Cole Anderly, both from Grandview Middle School in Mound.

The top five male and female individuals in the elementary, middle

school and high school divisions were awarded medals for their efforts

and earned an opportunity to attend the NASP National Championships May

8-9 in Louisville, Ky.

White Bear Lake took first place in the National High School Division.

Jackson Middle School finished first in the National Middle School

Division. Hilltop Primary School in Mound took first place in the

National Elementary School Division. Each team earned an opportunity to

participate in the NASP National Championships.

In the State Division, North Country Archers of Grand Rapids finished

first in the high school age group, St. Croix Prep in Stillwater took

first in the middle school age group and Mountain Iron/Buhl finished

first in the elementary age group.

The top three teams in each division and each age group received

trophies. All teams scoring above 2,500 in the elementary group, 2,600

in the middle school group and 2,700 in the high school group earned an

invite to the NASP National Championships.

Students in grades 4-6 competed in the elementary age group. Students

in grades 7-8 competed in the middle school age group. Students in

grades 9-12 competed in the high school age group.

Jill McKinney from Northalnd High School in Remer was selected as NASP

Coach of the Year. McKinney won the award because of her program’s

involvement of students in a wide variety of activities and her ability

to maintain a well-rounded and respected NASP program. McKinney will

winner.

I help with the Chisago Lakes NASP program, we just started it this year so we did not compete in the tournament this year.. but hope to maybe next year. It was nice, on friday the day before the tournament Chantelle came to help teach our elem students. She was very nice. And a heck of a shot! I'm not surprised that she won it again...

Here is a podcast I did with Chantelle back in 2007...

    • And then there are a select few people that don't know their arse from a hole in the ground and have the time to google chit about any subject imaginable and then pretend to be ex spurts on internet forums. 
    • I just bought one for my wife and am looking forward to trying it. I just cant wrap my head around cooking fresh meat that isn't frozen with breading on it. I will have to try the fish with dry batter on it. Do you spritz it with oil or not? Going to be a learning experience!
    • And a lot of people are pretentious snobs who pretend to distinguish  differences that do not exist. 
    • I don't mind Evan Williams but it's no where near as good as Trader Joe's but then again my beer of choice is Old Mill.    I've got a set of these bullet chillers on the way. Somehow I became a booze snob and didn't want my cheap Bourbon watered down and I'd rather have it chilled.  Less than 20 on the big A.
    • Bacon is cured already silly!
    • like any addiction............there are cures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Snow has finally stuck up north. With temperatures in the teens and low 20s it looks like it is here to stay. Several properties in the north are reporting between 6 and 10 inches, while the southern half of the state has seen primarily sporadic dustings up to a couple inches. While many ski trails still need additional snow and time to prepare, the Brule River, Northern Highland-American Legion and Point Beach state forests are grooming trails and making ready for the influx of skiers.At this point only Iron County in far northern Wisconsin is reporting that snowmobile trails are open, on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR).Ice conditions have not substantially improved. While there may be 10 inches of snow in Mercer, much of the ice on Iron County lakes varies between only1 and 4 inches. Those early ice anglers that are venturing out have reported solid catches for panfish and northern pike biting on Lake Poygan and those fishing Lake Chetac in Sawyer County are landing walleye, northern pike and panfish. There are just a few weeks left to turkey hunt and now is a good time to see turkeys feeding in fields and wooded areas. Pheasant hunters should note that the state game farm will be releasing an additional 1,500 birds on five wildlife areas prior to the holidays for some late season hunting. .
