ANNUAL ICE FISHING SAFARI
Feb 10, 2018
Welcome to the 52nd Annual Ice Fishing Safari. It looks like we will
have ice this
year. As of today, 1/22/18, we have
about 10-11inches of ice and the weather forecast looks good. I hope we have
a day where the temps are
about 30-35 degrees bright sun and no wind.
That way the ground does not get muddy and it is not to cold.
We plan on having our usual ice games like bocce and
ice golf. The Connecticut Golf
team has dominated the last couple of
years but I understand Brent has his team in tip top share for the opening
round. The bocce blocks are being made,
the green ones are ready and the blue blocks are next. For the seniors
we may even have bocce
sticks so they won’t have to get down on their knees to play. We have
11 New Stars this year and I hope
their sponsors have had them practicing their figure 8’s.
You may want to think about bring a lawn chair as I
figure there will be about 70-75 guys this year. Ms. Piggy will not be in attendance
however, she is sending her fresh little brother and has requested that Tony
Martone look after him for the day.
Thanks to Tom Wayland we will be having a new drink this year; hot mulled
cider that can be spiked or had virgin.
Of course, we will have the usual beer and the ole reliable 3 and 1 oil.
On a sad note we will be adding 3 guys to the Oar
this year (Fred Getner, Walter Wagner and Paul Hymers). Although they may be
gone in body they are
with us in spirit, may they RIP. If
the bald eagle circles overhead again this year—well????
As always many thanks to Vinny for the cover, Jim
for the web-site and chili, Al Florio for picking up the rolls, Andy and Ken
for collections and all the cooks, Don Meteja, Tony Martone, and John Lemke
just to name a few. Thanks also to
those who help with the set-up and clean-up and to all of you who do the extra
things to make Safari a great event. It
is all about a great bunch of guys getting together. Plus we'll have a special
year...someone who hasn't been here since the 3rd Safari...My old pal and
partner in crime: Steve Brod! If not
for him I would not be living on this beautiful lake!
We have 11 New Stars and they will be under the
direction of Ed Cohen.
