ANNUAL ICE FISHING SAFARI
Feb 9, 2019
the 53th Annual Ice Fishing
Safari. It looks like we will have ice
this year, as of today 1/27/19, we have about 5 inches of ice and the weather
forecast looks good. Looking at the 10 day
forecast it looks like we should have good ice but there may be some precipitation
in the time frame of Safari but that is still 10 days out.
I’m hoping we will have our
usual ice games like Bucci and ice golf.
The Connecticut Golf team has continued to dominate the last couple of
years but I understand Brent has his team in tip top shape for the opening
We expect to have Bucci games
again this year, as is tradition when we have playable ice. For
the seniors we may even had Bucci sticks so they won’t have to get down on
their knees to play.
We have about 6-7 New Stars
this year and I hope their sponsors have had them practicing their figure 8’s.
You may want to think about
bringing a lawn chair as it looks like there will be about 60 guys this year
and a comfy chair by the fire is always nice.
It would be great if the Bald
Eagle made an appearance and circled over low as we were doing the "Right
of the Oar" as it did two years ago. It certainly looked like a sign from the
in the chair and on the Oar. Sadly we
have 3 guys to add to the Oar this year, Mike Mazza, Steve Bohn, and John
Barron will all be missed. They were
great guys, may they rest in peace.
It is not clear yet if Miss
Piggy will be with us or not. She was
last seen flirting with that very Fresh Ham who was putting some moves on
her. Time will tell.
Again this year we will have both
the scud bucket and the powder room for those that might want to partake.
Jim Reynolds and his partners
will have his way with the “rookies” and when that is done Brian Cohen will take
over and work with them on their figure 8’s.
Don will have the eggs
popping first thing in the am and follow it up with lunch as only Don can do it.
