      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 .

Resort owners thoughts 1947

Recommended Posts

As I sit wondering what this year 1947 will bring let me write that the last 4 years have been good to us,Burt and me .

It seems that only 7 years ago that we were playing baseball out 200 yards from what is now shore.The drought years were very tough on other resort owners and ourselves.Norway lake was almost totaly dry and our Games Lake was over a third gone.

Their was a secret weekend when the Floubeck property delivered a large amount of noise by blowing open a water passage way between games and what is called Little Norway Lake.This delivered a great amount of water to the Norway Lake Chain.And Several years later the state had to begin continuosly building a (Contact Us Please) at the Games Lake end of chain to keep water in check.

Last year I offered over 3500 meals of hamburger ,and 10.000 ice cream cones to guests at our resort.We started building our 2 bedroom home as an addition to store and 3 cabins,camping people filled the vacant spots between us and the slough to the south east.We now have 17 boats that we built of white cedar with a oak beam rented every day with a waitng list.

Burt traps every fall and winter and Russ is in his second decade of life.Its hard to remember that 4 years ago we ate rice ,muskrat,racoon .and sometimes only rice.

My husbands fathers farm is holding on and my father is here helping with the boats.

As it is the end of April and we are now very busy I can only hope that this year is as good as the past three.Burts cousin Clarence is running the state park and we often visit.

I have served at least 400 breakfasts this spring.and 900 dinner and supper meals,

As our 5 booth and large bar counter seems to be a hit.I have to go now as some people need a boat and minnows.

I have got the last boat out for morning its now 8;00 am and have to clean the cabins for this weeks guests.They are from the Winchester Arms Company and Tonka Toys from the citys.Most of our cabin guests are sent here to fish bass from Green Lake Lodges and they bring their guests,guided from such.

The neighborhead fellows have been spearing and trapping northerns in ditches and i hope they do not get caught.
