Anoka County Pheasants Forever Youth Day

1 post in this topic

We will be hosting our 8th annual Youth Activity Day on Saturday, August 26th, at Beaverbrook Gun Club in Cedar, MN (think East Bethel if you don't know where Cedar is). This event is FREE to kids. We will feed them lunch, give them a Tshirt and let them partake in the following activities:

Trap shooting

.22 rilfe shooting

Pellet gun shooting

Archery

Orienteering

Shoot/Don't Shoot course

Blood Trail

Casting demonstrations and contests

Muzzleloader demos

Dog demos (pretty sure on this one, haven't confirmed yet)

Trapping demos

Live Raptors from the MN Raptor Center

Ducks-on-a-Stick from the USFWS

Conservation Officer and K9 officer

Camping essentials

and more.

We are really trying to get kids there who have not had a chance to experience these type of activities. By making it free and getting the word out, we hope to have well over 200 kids (we had 185 last year). I would like to ask a few things from you folks.....

1. Let me know if our advertising reaches you and how (so we can evaluate the $$ we stick into advertising)

2. Pass the word about the event. I have a flyer is anyone is interested in it.

3. If you can, load up a carload of kids and bring them to the event, and lastly....

4. If anyone would like to volunteer either their time to help at the event, or merchandise to give to the kids or $$ to help pay for 20 ga shells, let me know.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
