Fall 2020 Newsletter
Hunting seasons are here now in the northland of Minnesota and the Covid-19 will someday be just a memory for most of us. After much attempting to formulate a plan for our events to comply with the MN Government restrictions, with deep regret we decided to cancel the remainder of our events for 2020.
At this time we have “Ice Fishing” scheduled for Jan 25th & Feb 8th 2021. We also have reservations at Slims Resort for charter boat fishing for Aug 17th – 20th and will be setting dates for waterfowl and deer hunting when MN DNR sets the 2021 seasons.
We constructed a portable deer hunting stand on road worthy running gear to accommodate wheel chairs and also have a grant request pending with “Home Depot” for three more which we hopefully will build in 2021.
We now have major sponsors for three of our events – Red Lake Electric Coop, Border Bank & Middle River Sportsman Club jointly sponsor our “Youth Waterfowl Hunt”. MN DAV Chapter 7 sponsors our “Disabled Veterans Goose Hunt”, and MN DAV Chapter 41 sponsors our “Deer Hunt”. The “Minnesota DAV Foundation” is a great supporter in that they provide us a grant for lodging expense. It is, with hopeful anticipation that all this support will continue so we can provide the hunting, fishing and comraderie to 120-180 Veterans for years to come.
We are looking for a sponsorship for our summer fishing adventure on Lake of the Woods. This event is a three nights stay at “Slims Resort” with two full days of fishing on guided charter boats. Great fishing and plenty of comraderie for 24 Veterans.
