So the ice must be coming along and will be thick enough to have it as it looks right now then right?

Everything is coming along fine, in fact, we will be grooming the entire site tomorrow to pack the snow further and get the rest of the slush spots froze up. Should be in great shape by the 24th!

Sorry guys, I'm off line on weekends. Hole drilling will start at 10:30am on the 23rd. Strikemaster provides the augers, JC's provide a hot catered lunch.

We groomed the entire site this past Saturday and surprisingly, everything looks real good. Only one small slush pocket and it should freeze up good now.

To volunteer for hole drilling, please e-mail [email protected] Then I can send all the details and add you to the list. We only have room for 80 people and usually turn folks away. A free ticket is in high demand. Typically takes 3 hours plus the lunch break. It is cool to say that you helped drill 20,000 holes!

We take 80 hole drilling volunteers, have 60 augers so some pair up on an auger. Basically, each auger drills approx 300 holes with some drilling more. It is not a time for someone who has no experience with an ice auger, we drill hard and fast.

The area was groomed with weighted chainlink drags behind snowmobiles and a snowbear from Nisswa Marine. Pretty much every foot of the 250 acres site was covered. The snow was packed down enough that you could walk in shoes and not sink down much. Also, with the cold we have coming, it should set up even harder. The goal was to create a layer on top of the ice that would be hard enough to eliminate slush from flooding problems inside the contest area. I think the mission was accomplished and the conditions will be great for the Extravaganza.

      If your company is very large and has many employees, you will have to hire a professional company that is specifically dedicated to that, since a single professional will not be able to do everything, in the google search bar you can find many, but if someone here can recommend you one that has used it as much as possible is much better, good luck to your company and to you!

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/
