Lake-Link's Ice Fishing Jamboree '07By Jackie Vogen - March 1, 2007
As I sat inside the warm cozy resort, with my cup of coffee in my hand, I had an opportunity to socialize in many conversations with anglers who had come in from the weather. I met two men, Dave and Jeremy, who shared many of their personal experiences on different lakes they've fished and we talked about fishing with kids. I believe this is an added bonus when I'm able to socialize with people who share in a common interest.
After a long day of fishing, everyone gathered for a spaghetti dinner, complete with all the fixin's. Friendly conversations and laughter could be heard throughout the room. Thousands of dollars in prizes were given away and many lucky winners were able to claim an engraved Lake-Link "Beaver Dam Tip-Up". http://www.beaverdamtipup.com.
The party carried over to the bar, where everyone was ready to "JAMBO ON!" Many of us not only had a thirst to discuss our fishing knowledge, but also a thirst for a few drinks, too. Lake-Linker's were toasting to a good year of fishing and celebrated the night away.
A special thanks goes out to Darin, Steve, Don and Mr. and Mrs. Novak for their efforts in the overall success of the Jamboree and to the staff and all the volunteers who contributed their time and help in making the day successful. A special thank you goes out to Chris, only 10 years old, for having the patience to stand for over an hour drawing the tickets for the prizes, (but was rewarded when he pulled his own name and won a Lake-Link "Beaver Dam Tip-Up"). A Big Thank You to Mrs. Perch for making all the delicious pies and to "Dspicabl" for making the cute "Tip-Up" pins.
The Lake-Link Ice Fishing Jamboree is one event you don't want to miss. Great people, ice fishing, dinner and prizes made this weekend a very memorable one. I'm looking forward to the "2008 Ice Fishing Jamboree". Thanks to all the Lake-Linkers for a great time! JAMBO ON!
I love what I'm learning and I'm learning what I love to do. I LOVE TO FISH!
