Biggest Jack- 20% payout + choice of prize

There are many prizes to be won. Even if you don’t catch a fish you can still go home with a prize.

Cancellations must be made a week prior to get refund and refunds will NOT be given out if bad weather approaches. Sorry for the inconvenience.

If you are inexperienced I have 15 spots to be filled where you can book a spot with an experienced fisher. I have 5 wonderful ladies volunteering their time to help YOU ladies. They will be taking on 3 ladies to help educate you on all your ice fishing needs. By booking a spot with one of these ladies you will be guaranteed a tent, rods, tackle, etc. If you have supplies please let me know when you signup so I don’t have to find more than I have too.

Thanks to these 5 ladies for volunteering their time:

- Melissa Lindsay

- Jessica Major
- Jackie Smith McGill
- Lynn Smith

There will be an onshore FREE lunch of hotdogs and hot chocolate.

Supper (not provided) and announcing of prizes at Call-ins Hotel located in Pilot Mound.

Shuttle available for FREE to reservoir and back to Call-Inns hotel. Donated by the Pilot Mound Pilots hockey team. (This may not be a for sure as the team may need the bus for playoffs)

Holes will be drilled to your needs.

There will be a 50/50 draw.

Location- Southside

No Shacks- portable shacks such as canvas/tents are allowed. We don’t want campers and small shacks unloading and loading throughout the day. If a big crowd develops we don’t want any room for accidents!

We prefer if vehicles were left off the ice but they can be used for loading and unloading equipment. It’s not a huge area and once again we want to avoid accidents.

All fish caught will be released back into the reservoir.

Rules will be posted in the future.

No LICENCE required because of the weekend it lands on!

This event is non-profit and it’s created to educate ladies on ice fishing, meet new people and have laughs along the way.

This event is also solely run by donations so if you have any donations or sponsors in mind please let me know!

If you are interested in helping or volunteering please let me know also!

I would like to give a big thanks to the Mound Wildlife Association for letting me use their organization to make this happen. I’m glad to be part of an amazing group.

Concert: The Andrew Collins Trio

Written by

As Collins gathers up innumerable JUNO nominations (5) and Canadian Folk Music Awards (7) won by his various ensembles, he’s zeroing in on the work he does with Trio-mates: fellow string guru Mike Mezzatesta, whose versatility shines through on guitar, mandolin, fiddle and mandola, and in-the-pocket James McEleney holding it down on the bass, mandocello and vocals. Showcasing a dizzying number of styles and instruments on stage, Collins and Co. appear to live by the old adage, “idle hands are the devil’s workshop”, likely keeping them just ahead of his grasp. Bending and blending genres, these musical shapeshifters land somewhere between the re-imagined worlds of Béla Fleck and Newgrass invader, David Grisman.

They just released a new double album, grafting 11 vocal cuts (tongues) to 11 instrumentals (grooves) to create a seamless finish with their cleverly monikered double album, Tongue & Groove. Each cut is milled to perfection and represents a back-to-basics visitation on what the band does best — the spontaneity of the stage and rapid-fire, improvisational exchanges.

Concert: Woody Holler and his Orchestra

Written by

WOODY HOLLER grew up on the Canadian prairie hearing the songs of the cowboy. Although he was later trained in opera, a sense of nostalgia held him close to those western roots. In 2009, Woody teamed up with some of Winnipeg’s finest jazz musicians and began purveying his own brand of Western Swing that Woody defines as “jazz from the saddle”. The show is reminiscent of a 1940s radio show with a sound that is nostalgic yet thrilling. The music involves clever arrangements rich with virtuosity and style. The repertoire is eclectic, fun and fascinating, featuring finger-snapping swing beats, honey-slowed love croons, a dash of opera, and show-stopping “extreme” yodelling.
