    Hey Paul,

    I'm not gonna be there due to work, but is there anything I can do for this to help make it a success. Looks like lots of fun for the kids and photo OPs for parents. Have lots of memories Ice Fishing as a Kid

    thanks Mark

    what i could use help with is...

    Last year everything went great other than we had to have the awards ceremony in the bar area and there was a lot of smoke where the children were. This year we are trying to find someone to donate a tent so that we can have the room needed outside the bar and be healthier for the children. What I am asking for is if anyone has or knows someone who can help that could donate a tent for this event? We are looking at needing a 20x 40 tent. All donations are tax deductable and all proceeds from this event is going to the local chapter of “Make a Wish foundation”.

    Paul

    Sent you a PM ref to possible National Guard Support. Its worth a try for the large tent. Good opportunity for positive PR for them.

    If you need a mobile grill call Arden at NC Machinery in Wasilla. I believe that rentleman on here also works for NC. They have a cool grill that looks like a dozer.

    Thumbs up Cool deal!

    I'm bringing "Bob" my 6 year old. Going to be a good time! Let us know if there is any way we can help. Do you supply fishing gear and poles and such? All of ours are at the lodge, so thought I'd better check. I'll just pick em up on the lake if they are selling them there.

    Looking forward to it!
