What ever you want to donate.
Can't charge or it becomes a commercial event and I would have to pay the state tax's and a cut to FWP.
SOOOOO donations it is, can will be on sign up table.

Ah, crap. I was hoping to see a post from you saying you were 100% ready to roll.

Question for you, do you or have you ever explored trying to come up with a way to be able to accept cash donations for this event so folks like myself who think its a great thing you are doing but live out of the immediate area could donate cold hard cash to help defray some of the cost involved with putting something like this on.

I'm not a pay pal, venmo, zelle guru etc but it would be great if there was a way for someone to donate cash to the cause. If this option exists, please let me know cuz I'd like to put some cash into the kitty.

All, I think we will be OK.
Few more days of cold.
Might have to cut it short if warms up on Sat.
5"+ will be fine in my opinion.

Always had a great time at this event, kids to.
FWP turned loose quite a few trout on Tuesday, [ some hogs also].
Hope all the rods stay above the ice.
Will be checking the ice with FWP on Thursday PM.
Will post when I get home.

Any ice reports for yesterday or today?

Every one get rested, Tomorrow is the big Day.
Fish are just waiting to be caught, hope it's "The big one".
Prize trailer is loaded, lot of goodies.
Remember sign up is 8:00am-9:00am, meeting, go fishing 9:15am-1:00pm, depending on ice conditions.
Bring a lunch, no chili this year, I will have pop and chips for snacks.

Volunteers I will be there by 7:30am, banners to hang, holes to drill and buckets to make, area needs flagged off
More help the better.
PLEASE no dogs, video games.
Thanks FP1

Another kids clinic is in the book, a great  outing.
Had 61 smiling, happy, excited kids on the ice.
All caught fish, had a 6 way tie for smallest fish.
The big fish were a 6 1/2" monster perch and a 15" bass.
Everyone had a good time[ including the kids.]
If you were not there you missed a good time...sorry.
I want to personally thank all the sponsors and the great work of the volunteers, Thanks again..
After peck , will start on next years clinic.
