Are these teams made up of "all stars"? When I played little league in Coon Rapids there was a National League and an American League. Each group of teams played at different parks.

yup, Coon Rapids in fact now has 3 Little Leagues, National, American, and Central. National has been to the regional in Indy every year but one since 2002. They are all star teams but only within their own leagues. In fact National played American to make it to the state tourney.

All little league ball has been this way for - long time. The teams that make it that far are not your neighborhood boys playing, they are a conglomeration of "all stars" to make a team worth contending for something like this. I played on a team in regionals a long time ago, and knew like 3 people on the team.

Anyone catch their game last night?? What a way to end the game, HR in the bottom of the 6th. They now play the team from Arizona which should be a good match-up

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

      February 23rd, 2017:
         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
