8 posts in this topic

On Monday I go in front of our school board to get the NASP program in our school. This is a great program I hope they vote yes. If you have time check this website out and try and get it in your school. Im a MOM [mom on a mission] and I dont take no for a answer. Wish me luck the kids need it.

Saddie,

My school started the program last year. We are K-4 school on the west side of Lake Minnetonka. We ran the program for 3rd and 4th graders. We participated in the state tournament last year and we had 53 students 1/3 of our 3rd and 4th graders) participate. Their parents drove them the 1.5 hours to Sauk Rapids because they liked it so much. We won the elementary division and now are kids are proud to be the archer state champs.

Our middle school and high school also started the program last year with great success.

Our middle school was highlighted in the Star Tribune reporting on introducing archery back into the schools.

If you have any questions or if there is anything I can help you with on your quest, please email me at wallacem@westonka.k12.mn.us

Good Luck,

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
