      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 .

Metro MDAA Banquet

Recommended Posts

Anyone going this Saturday?

Anyone been to it before? How late does the banquet run? I joined this year and haven't been to a banquet yet.

I'm going to try to be there. I might have to leave early too, but I want to at least check out the fish house that I'm going to win. Yeah right..... \:D\:D

The dinner is usually pretty good, lots of prizes to try and win with raffle tickets (you put your tickets towards the stuff you'd like to win), and they try to get done by 9:00pm or sooner. There are silent auction items like decoys and prints too. The grand prize fishhouse on wheels is drawn last but you don't have to be there to win. My wife and I won it last year so it actually does happen!

I donated one of the spears I made this year to be given away as a prize.

My wife was wondering what is for dinner?

Hopefully you will let me spear with you one day next year, from your new spear house. lol

Actually I picked up a new house (an 8X8 portable, the 4X6 was a little too comfy for 2) but it is not even close to being as nice as that one!!!

If I win the big fish house at the banquet, I will bring steak instead of catfish to the next Get-to-Gator!!!

It sounds like Huey has it all wrapped up though, so all I can hope for is to get a spearing trip out of the deal. grin.gif

Well I just got back from the banquet and it was a really good time!! Really good food, more than I could eat!!! There were tons of prizes. My wife and her friend ended up with gift certificates from Applebee’s. They really packed the people in!! I was really impressed with the turnout. I didn't get to see Huey (or the orange cap) there but I did see some other familiar faces. I ended up sitting across from a guy who spears lakes within 15 miles of my house. So we may get to go out spearing next year. It is amazing to hear from so many within the org that are working so hard to maintain our rights to hunt, fish, spear and trap within Minnesota. I was really amazed at how many people drove their pickups in. lol I was one of the optimistic ones too, but I am sorry to say that there will be no steaks at the get to gator; someone else won the wheel house. Man that thing was nice!!! I tried for the auger but ended up short there too!!! The food and people were wonderful and it was well worth the trip. I big thanks to all the companies that donated prizes. Canvas Craft gave at least 2 nice portable houses, the wheel house from ice castle and there were a ton of other companies that gave things also. Hats off to all of them!!! I wish I had a list of all of them that donated and advertise here so we can give each and everyone of them a big kudos. I hope to make it to next year’s banquet.

So what was for supper?

I stopped by for a while btu couldn't stay for supper. I think I was there from 4:30 to 5 or so. There were a ton of good prizes. It was neat to check out some of decoys, spears, the wheel house, etc. It looked like was going to be a fun evening. Hopefully, I'll get to attend next year.

Even if you guys couldn't make the banquet you should think about joining the MN Darkhouse Assoc. It is cheap and all the money stays in the state to promote angling and spearing and to keep tabs on the proposed laws.
