Big thank you to John Jordan and TCWU Volunteers for hosting the 3rd annual Minnesota National Guard Youth Programs Ice Fishing Camp!
I am sending out a sincere thanks to all who helped make this year's Military Youth Ice Fishing Clinic another success. We had 106 kids show up, almost 60 parents, and close to 30 volunteers who worked hard to make it all work out.
Special thanks goes out to all my fellow members at the Twin Cities Walleyes Unlimited, Laura and Mel at the Minnesota National Guard Child and Youth Program along with the fantastic teenagers that showed up with them to help out, Ken at the Disabled Veterans Campground, Christina Lemke and Matt Johnson at Clam Outdoors and the Ice Team, my wife Gloria and our dear friend Julie for cooking,
Julie's husband Keith for lending me his fish house, Tanner and his friend, the guys with Dive Guys Big Fish and Fry, the folks that showed up from Allianz.
I can't forget our sponsors for this event; Scheels, Northland Tackle, the Minnesota DNR, the Wounded Warrior Project, Vados Bait, Vexilar, Hy-Vee, Fresh Thyme, Lunds & Byerlys, Old Dutch, Cub Foods.
I could not have done this without all your help and support. I am passionate about this event for multiple reasons and I am thrilled to see it continue to grow. Thanks again everyone.
