      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 .

The Deb Radosevich Burntside Bash

Recommended Posts

Steve Foss

Hey all:

The organizers of this year's Sixth Annual Burntside Bash on January 26 have given it a new name.

Surface Tension, Chunkytrout and I have re-named it the Deb Radosevich Burntside Bash and have dedicated it to the significant other of a good friend to all on this board — Skippers Kid. The idea came from FM's Wanderer, who e-mailed me yesterday with the suggestion. Thanks, Tracy!

For those of you who have been following the thread on this same board about Deb, you know what her condition is, how long she's been in the hospital and what a difficult physical, spiritual and financial toll this has taken and will continue to take on her — and the whole family.

Her physicians are taking care of her physical care, and the FM family here has offered its spiritual support for these past couple of months. That leaves the financial side of things. After 40+ days in the hospital, well, you can figure out how hard that part is, so now we're going to give them some help in that arena, too.

In re-naming this and dedicating it to her, we are also going to donate the proceeds of the Bash to her, and will accept donations in the form of checks written to Debbie Radosevich from those many, many of you who can't make the Bash but still want to help out. Anyone who wants to can mail those checks to me at: Steve Foss, 57 W. Chandler, Ely, MN 55731. Or Frank DeLuca, 5382 Jentoft Rd, Saginaw, MN, 55779 and of course if any of you see us walking around and want to donate, just hand it over to us and we'll keep it safe until the time is right.

And the time will be right at this year's Bash, which will be on Jan. 26 on Burntside Lake. We're not planning any admission fee, but we will be charging a donation to Deb for folks to get in on the drawing for all those prizes we give away each year. Cheffrey also has generously donated his chef skills, and we will be offering some type of brat or other meat combo plate for $5 or so, which will mean a lot of folks won't have to bring their own food and prepare it themselves. And, lastly, anyone who wants to make a separate donation at the Bash can simply give it to Surface Tension, Chunkytrout or I.

All the aforementioned money will go to Deb.

So, friends, as well as coming to the best event on ice and pursuing the most aggressive fish under the ice in North America, you can help out one of our own FM family.

See you all at the Deb Radosevich Burntside Bash! grin.gifgrin.gif

That has a nice ring to it! It's always nice when an event like this has another "purpose". Kinda gets people fired up for a good cause.

Good idea Wanderer, and good work to those in charge.

I have been slightly involved in a couple benefits recently and know that there are some ways that the donations can be tax deductible. One such way for small business owners was to post a sign (even a business card) and deduct a donation as advertising. I'll ask those people who have been in charge how that and other deductibility ideas worked. If donations can be deductible it makes giving easier and increases the bottom line.

I also learned that a raffle can be illegal unless you have it under the organization of an entity permitted to have them. In one case, the benefit was held at a fire department and the proceeds were gifted from the department to the intended receipient. You may need to contact such an organization.

I'll try to learn and post later.

When Steve approached me on this, it was a no brainer. I know I'm not the most "present" person on this board anymore and I appreciate the "formal" reference of me but.....YOU PEOPLE HAVE MADE THE BASH WHAT IT IS. I just crammed 20 odd people in my 6x8 until the floor collapsed and that was the beginning of that six years ago. Since then we introduced alot of people into the laker ritual and made alot of friends. THAT my friends is what it's all about. Now, one of our family members could use some help and I can think of no better way than to dedicate this bash to Deb and Skippers Kid. They're going to need all the help they can get. So I urge you to join us for a weekend of fun, frolicking (STF spelling?), sportsmanship, and giving to those in need. Last year was the first time I fished the bash in two years and some of you may remember my partner and I caught the only stocker. It not only resembled a football, it immitated one. But, I missed taking people out to spots and chatting with folks so this year I'll be machine bound. If you're walking in from the landing and need a spot and/or transport, I'll be there. I had alot of fun doing that in the years before. Folks, this year's bash is a little special. If you want to come out and learn icing lakers or are a veteran, here's a great time to do it and hopefully make a difference in a fishing family members life. Cheers and see you on the ice.

Ideas are good, but actions are great!

I don't know Tom or Deb but its easy to see they're thought highly of. It seemed like an easy door to open for FMers to act and make a real difference when its needed. Its obvious so many care.

Thanks for running with this Steve, Frank and Chunky. cool.gif

Behold the power of the Burntside Bash.

Six years ago Chunky gave life to this event. New friendships were made. We knew then that we'd have to gather on the ice again for what is the Bash. The theme has always been comradery on the ice. Its pretty easy to coordinate an event thats built on that foundation. Sure we try and add a few bells and whistles to the Bash. This year that will be much the same but with the chance to help raise a few bucks for Deb. As always, we need you there, its you that help make the Bash what it is. Maybe just maybe Deb will have progressed enough to make an appearance. Before I forget theres fishing too, of the Laker variety. We've been know to pick a fight with one, sometimes we win. smile.gif

We look forward to seeing you all there.

I wandered through a couple of the bait/tackle stores today in Ely and planted some prize donation seeds. Explained how this year's Bash would be different and what we are working to accomplish.

If anyone has prizes they think would be nice additions, or if you know retailers/wholesalers in your towns who you feel comfortable approaching about donating prizes of their own (we're not talking new pickups here, it can be small), feel free. Just shoot me or Frank an e-mail if you have something and we'll start collecting what we can before the Bash and gathering the rest on Bash day.

Thanks for the help, everyone. grin.gifgrin.gif

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!
    • grundy
      don't  give them any ideas!
    • fisherjmb
       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
    • Jim Almquist
      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
