The games began early for the 2nd Annual Crooked Lake Resort Ice Fishing Derby! A gorgeous day to be outside breathing in the fresh air while absorbing the breathtaking view! While everyone was chill, weigh in was serious business :) While Tom won first prize with his bounding one pounder, Angie pulled it out at the last minute for 2nd prize and Phil took 3rd. Mareika honed her skills and is still out there looking for the big one as I write this :) Tracie served up her famous chili and burgers with one arm in a sling. Thanks so much to everyone who made the somewhat harrowing journey to get out here to support the derby! There were lots of winners of the raffle prizes and as a team we raised over $800.00 for the Horsefly P.S. Farm to School Lunch Program to buy beef, pork and lamb raised in harmony with nature by the Krumsiek family at Big Bear Ranch, who are also going to give the students an educational tour of the farm. Another incredible $500.00 was donated by the Truckers Association to go the the Farm to School Program for other essential needs to keep kids eating/learning/practicing healthy life skills. Please stop in and thank our very generous biz donors by spending your $$ and appreciating them, as we do, for being community initiative partners
Tom wins 1st Prize, Longhouse for 2 nights, 2 dinners, 2 brunches, a boat rental and a derby t shirt. Angie wins a cabin for 2 nights, 2 brunches, a boat rental and a derby t shirt. Phil wins a cabin, brunch and a kayak/canoe for a day. Congratulations!

During the fires many programs that were counting on fundraising to help sustain them had to cancel their events. And some programs are just darn good for the health of our communities. We'd like to take this opportunity to send a little something to say how much we appreciate all that they do. We will have bucket draws for the generously donated prizes and all of the proceeds will go to these programs.
