I have to share my excitement about meeting Rick and Janene Shannon, the winners of this year’s Leinie’s on the Lake contest. They took home a 2015 Montego Bay 18’ Fishing Pontoon. They added many upgrades to the pontoon before taking delivery. Rick and Janene are from Lost Nation, IA and have been on Prairie Lake for the past five years. Congratulations to the Shannons - may they have many enjoyable days of fishing on the Chetek chain of lakes!
Gary and I were talking about the 15-15-15 Pre-Season Promo that just concluded. This was a very successful event for the marina. Thank you to all of those who participated with the purchase of a new dock system or lift.
I’ve started to get ready for my long hibernation. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, it is going to be a cold, snowy winter here in Wisconsin. And it’s likely an early winter so I can’t dawdle too long. With that, I would like to remind you all to not dawdle too long either when it comes to winter preparation. If you need to have us pull your dock and/or lift, you’d better make sure you are on the list. The Dock Crew plans on being finished with dock & lift removals by October 21st.
Many of you have boats or pontoons that are going to be going into hibernation soon, too. Remember to remove your life jackets, locators and any other valuables that could be sensitive to the cold or dampness. The last thing you want to do is have to replace items next spring because they weren’t properly put away this fall.
Be sure to take some time to enjoy the colors, the sights and the sounds associated with the changing of the seasons. I know I am going to be doing so!
